Journal entry #6: Happy 01st spiritual birthday to me!

 :

29th October 2017

This is the day that I answered the call to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior… exactly one year ago.

As a little girl, I attended church with my mother, and I’ll sit down and pay attention to the pastor. I thought that having God in my life was a win-win situation, but growing up, I slowly, but surely drifted away (by neglecting His Word and not attending church). School got in the way and then work (I believe that school and work is a form of imprisonment!). Eventually, I put Him on the back burner in favor of trying to make it on my own. No, I did not attend parties for where there is a crowd, I don’t hang, but I was interested in the entertainment industry as I wrote songs and scripts.

I would still pray and thank God for waking me to see another day, for the meal He provided and for the roof over my head, but it was not the same as having an intimate relationship with Him. Last year, I sat down and prayed about it and I was pointed to church, an important part of my new spiritual life that I knew I was missing, but somehow ignored. After attending a few months of church, my spirit was renewed and I started to draw/feel closer to Him.

There was only one more step left for me to do: baptize. The decision was not mine to be made, but His, and at the time He made known that it was time for me to go into the water, I was excited and nervous. Excited because I was finally putting my life in His hands; nervous because I dislike venturing out at sea although I love the sea! 🙂

Being baptized and accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior was singlehandedly the most incredible experience of my life. I wished I had accepted His salvation sooner, but those trials and tribulations made me who I am today. I am still a newborn babe, but I strive every day to live as He wants me to and to do His will and not mine.

October 28th: Seven wonders

Khalil Gibran once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words. What would your seven words be?

I disagree with Gibran, but my seven words are: All you need is the Saviour Jesus.

October 29th: First

Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever.

My first day of reattending church went well. I remember being excited and the members were warm and friendly. They welcomed me without asking questions and I was even assigned to a Bible Study class!

Living for Him.

Reflecting on my relationship with God

I grew up believing that there was a God and that He made the heaven and earth and created us in His image. Although I’ve strayed away from attending church and neglecting the Bible at some point in my life, I never stopped praying and believing in God. I made the decision to live for Him although I am still working on areas of my life. This is the best decision I’ve ever made because He accepts us as we are.

Tomorrow God’s willing, I’ll talk about answering His call.

Yes, This Is Our World. 🗺

Catalonia parliament has declared its independence from Spain.

It’s chaos in Spain!

On 9 July 1816, Argentina, Uruguay and part of Bolivia declared independence from Spain.

Catalonia’s parliament has declared independence from Spain in a vote earlier today. And how did Spain react? They sacked Catalonia’s government and assumed direct control over the region. This means that central government ministries will assume direct powers of the Catalan administration until a regional election takes place on December 21.

It is not going to be smooth sailing for Catalonia where it concerns EU given that countries such as Germany and France are among European countries that back Spanish unity. The US State Department also issued a similar statement on the matter. So far, Finland is the only country preparing to go against Spain and recognize Catalonia’s independence.

What does this mean for FC Barcelona?

Football fans are more concerned with what would happen to their beloved FC Barcelona when Catalonia is finally independent. Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said that the Catalan giants are determined to remain in La Liga. However, at the moment, nobody knows. All we know is that their future in the Spanish league into jeopardy.

I’ve supported this football club for years and whatever happens, I’ll continue to support them.

Visca el Barça i Visca Catalunya!
