Share You Christian Story About God’s Will For Your Life And Your Experiences.
What were you doing when you realized that God has a purpose for your life? God is always speaking to us, but when we’re quiet or in a place of peace, we can better hear Him.
My story regarding living the purpose God had for me is one that took much time for me to fulfill. I believe that God has led me to writing since I was very small. I could have moved forward with Him much sooner, but I lacked the confidence to write and to serve God. I was a late bloomer in everything I have done and listening to God was no exception. I didn’t even know that God had a special plan for each Christian until I was in my thirties.
I became a Christian when I was nine years old and had always loved God, but our family was not Christian oriented in our life-style. As a consequence it wasn’t until I was on my own in my early twenties that I began to search for a means of fulfilling the void within my heart for the things of God. I didn’t know how or where to begin so I started with the Bible, but found it difficult to understand. I visited many churches, but it wasn’t until I was led by the Holy Spirit to randomly visit a church I had noticed from the street while driving that I was able to begin walking with God. It was at this church that I learned how to understand the Bible.
While I continued with Bible studies at the new church I was led to attend, the church itself was going through many difficult changes so I wasn’t able to find the answers to my questions that would lead me to God’s purpose for my life. So I turned to self-study. I found books and tapes by Kenneth Hagin and studied them everyday when my children took their naps. I would pray for guidance in the morning. By then I was in my early thirties and busy with a growing family, so I had to work at making time for God. It was through my studies that I learned the importance of seeking after God’s will for my life.
It took some time, but once I had begun with God, I continued to follow His lead. I had many problems so I had to trust God to help me overcome each one and I did. Once I was free through Jesus Christ I began to realize that I had taken the long road with God. I put my studies together to create studies that help Christians get their lives together in order to serve God and live His will much sooner than it took me. Now I share those studies with Christians all over the world.
