My Spiritual journey part 2: My Faith
For those who have followed me for the past few years, the fact that I have faith isn’t a surprise. For the rest, a refresher course in my journey.
On 10-10-10 10:10 I put my life in the hands of God and left everything and everyone I knew, and set out on a journey across the country. God has lead me the entire way; gifting me with angels upon angels in my travels thus far.
From eight days in a rest area in Montana, to a “trespasser strike” on a train in Florida (wait, there were two of those, over a year apart!), to a birthday celebration in the Grand Canyon, and so many more adventures; it is only with hindsight that I am able to really marvel at the blessings I have received since I began to exercise my faith in God.
There have been times in the past few years when I have drifted far off of my path. The farther I became from God, the fewer my blessings, and the more illness and disability afflicted my body and my mind. When Jesus was absent from my prayers, my prayers simply were not heard. There doesn’t get a simpler testimony than that.
I have been guilty of many sins. I will no doubt sin again. It happens. Now that I have started to make them; I will do my best to keep each and every oath and covenant I make with my Heavenly Father. I will strive to do good for others each and every day of my life. That is why I am here. I know that now.
Words cannot describe the happiness that I have felt in these last few months. My life is on track, I may just finally be growing up…. and I am enjoying it. That must mean I am getting old or something. I don’t care. I like me.
I plan to live the rest of my life in service to God. Simple as that. I will do exactly what He leads me to. Sort of like when I left everything I knew, and put my faith in Him to lead me to who and what I needed to know.
He has been with me, in the form of the Holy Spirit; each and every time I specifically asked. As a confirmed member of The Church, I have the Gift of the Constant Companion in the Comforter or Holy Ghost. I have faith in Him to lead me to the Lighte that is Christ. I have FAITH that THEY will lead me HOME to the Love and the Lighte in the Heavenly Eternity.
