The Importance Of My Relationship With God

Good Essays
Life can change drastically in a single moment, one that is most often outside of our control; we can however, control our response. In May of 2016, my husband of nearly eight years chose to walk out on me; with a comment of “I’m done, I can’t do this anymore,” he walked out our door and with that my life will never be the same. I cannot control my husband’s choices or actions nor do I really want to, instead I have my own choices to make and those I can control. I have spent the past several months growing closer in my relationship with God, asking him to use me and seeking his will for my life. He has been so faithful and gracious to me through this time and has given me the determination and drive to not waste my life just because my circumstances …show more content…
I don’t remember ever not believing in God or knowing that he is there for me, but as I have lived my life I would slowly let my relationship with him grow distant. I am thankful that he has always called me back to him, I’m positive he does this every day but I don’t always listen. This situation could have crushed my faith, instead God has used it to restore my faith and my relationship with him, and not only to restore but to rebuild it better than it was before. God has shown me that he is enough for me, it doesn’t matter what circumstances I face.
Shortly before my husband left I listened to a sermon that talked about God using us wherever we are at. My prayer for months has been “God, I am hurting, tired and worn, but I am here and I know you are faithful; use me where I am that you may be glorified though this trial.” God is faithful, he has used me in ways that I never could have imagined before and in situations and relationships that I would not have been a part of without my current circumstances. I’ve had the opportunity to volunteer locally, to share my faith and my hope

I have both received and given support, encouragement and prayer in ways that I never experienced to this extent before. God is using me right where I am, within and because of my circumstances; I pray this is a lesson I will not forget.
I am doing my best to seek God’s will for my life, I don’t have a complete picture of that yet and I am not sure I ever will because then I would not need to trust him. I do believe that he has called me to pursue my Psychology degree though I am not sure to what end. I have considered the possibility that this is purely for my own need to grow, learn and be challenged, for a possible career change, to serve within my church or to serve another non-profit organization.I don’t know God’s plan but I will keep seeking him and in time I believe he will make things clear to me.I feel focused, driven and motivated to seek and follow God’s will for my life wherever it may lead. I know I will still fail and falter in life, but God has proven over and over that he is there for me and I know that if I choose him, put him first and seek his will that I will be more than

    Many people do not think about God having faith and trust in them, but He does. When we give ourselves to Him, He trusts that we will continue to follow Him no matter what lies ahead. But when we do get off course, He will show us the way back. The reason why I am saying this is because I was once lost, but God helped me find my way back and in every detail, He was there—I was able to find Him, and the moment I did He turned my life around by showing me what I was created for. My calling is to lead worship and help those who are lost.…

    “God has also given us the gift and responsibility of choice. Because we were born with a tendency to sin, we are inclined to choose our way rather than God’s” (Isaiah 53:6).

My God is my Heavenly and Eternal Father who loves me and I love Him.

    I have prayed that “God let me know what my talent, you gave me, is. God tells me why you call me here.” God have not really told me directly so far. However, I realized one thing that the place, time and people where I am is the place God calls me to show my passion about God. Also, there is no place and time and people to stop my passion about God. Thus, I would like to say, “this is the place, time, people where I am now that God calls me to be passionate.” In my life, I hope I continue to passionate with the people in every moment in…

    I learned that I did not need to let go of the memories, but embrace them and use them towards my bright future, I learned to accept the reality of moving to a new place and teach myself that it was for the greater good. Today I realize that not everyone is who they say they are, and that is okay. I forgive them, I forgive myself. At that time I did not do anything to defend the truth and defend my God, but now I have a true reason to fight for.
