I was thinking thinking and thinking and so i went to my very first pastors page on facebook to look at how he thinks and where he receives inspiration and maybe i didn't quite find what i was looking for but i found these three questions and i tried to answer them as best i could...
1.Who am I?
I am 'tisha', i am a new creation in Christ Jesus, everyday i walk with the Holy Ghost a little closer, i am committed to the ministry of reconciliation (letting people know about the good news that Christ has paid for sin and its consequences and a free gift is available). The platform i use to spread the gospel is where i work, the people i come across and impact a little more everyday for Jesus. Every other thing is just a part of this major thing, if i do this, then i am alright with Jesus.
2.Where am I?
Right now, i am on my way to destiny by the things that i do everyday, it may not look like much and of course i am not satisfied with it (if you knew me, you would know why) but i am confident that even though it looks like i am charting my course, i know that he leads me everyday. How do i know that? Because every morning when i wake up, i can see the sun rise and i know that is a sign of his covenant, and on my way home after work, i can see the sun setting and i know only Him can make the sun rise and set...
God is faithful and the spiritual is so much more real than this physical.
3.Where am I going?
I can see tomorrow with my eyes of the spirit and i know that it is beautiful and full of promise and prosperity and joy and peace and love and success and everything divine. I see growth in all areas, i see favor and compassion, i see me becoming a better person and adding value as usual. I see a life lived in purpose to please God but nothing boring, i see a fun life, adventurous and full of everything God considers good, this is my life for he perfects all that concerns and at the scent of water cause everything that concerns me to bud and be full of life, He takes care of everything i put in His hands.
My scripture for the week:
"But to attain these gifts, you need more than faith, you must also work hard to be good and even that is not enough. For you must learn to know God better and discover what he wants you to do. Next learn to put aside your own desires so that you will become patient and godly, gladly letting God have his way with you. This will make it possible for the next step which is for you to enjoy other people and to like them, and finally you will grow to love them deeply. The more you go on this way, the more you will grow strong spiritually and become useful to our Lord Jesus Christ"
The above scripture i blogged with in Dec 2008 and it was a catalyst for a great many good things in my life. Growing up i used to have headaches if i cried, have heart burn if i had a shouting match or my chest would contract if i held anger inside. so i grew up not fighting much, as i have grown older in my Christian faith, i have come to understand that retaining negative emotions stagnates your growth and the Holy Ghost will speak but you won't hear so i am sharing this with you in the hope that the word of God changes you the way it has changed me.
PS By the way i am right now undergoing 'change' again, i think i am getting used to it.
