Happy Birthday to me! Today I am not celebrating the day that my mother gave birth to me. I am celebrating the day that I was born again. The day that God saved me and gave me a new spirit. It has been five years. It seems like so much longer than that because so much has happened in my life. The person that I was before 2/7/2016, seems like a part of my ancient history.
This day, February 7, will forever be special to me. My physical appearance may've remained the same but the spirit that is within me was completely changed. I received a miracle on this day. I experience God in a way that I never knew was possible. And my life has not been the same since.
February seventh was not the end of my life long search for God. It wasn't the finish line, it was the beginning. The start of my journey with God by my side. Walking step by step, seeking His direction and help. Trusting Him to help me stay on His straight and narrow path.
I'd never imagine that I'd accomplish the things that I done in the last five years. It's all a testament to Him. To how He will give your life purpose and meaning. In these last five years, I've been learning and growing everyday. Learning about myself and growing in Him. And as long as I am living this process will continue.
I was so lost and so far from God but He did not hold that against me. When I decided to seek Him, He was right there. Now this did not happen overnight. It was a process and for me this process took 9 months. But eventually God did respond. Just be faithful and sincere, and at the right time He will respond. He did it for me and He will do it for you.
