LORD, WILL YOU MEET ME HERE?



LORD, WILL YOU MEET ME HERE?


Hey wonderful people, 

In September of   last year, I made the decision to give my life to Christ. It has been the most interesting and literally one of the most fulfilling journeys. Through my walk, I have seen the glory and love of God. I can honestly say I have seen God’s hand on my life. It was not a spontaneous decision. God had been calling me and drawing me towards him for a long time.

When I first started my faith walk, I was more interested in being perfect than being real. It became goal oriented for me. I wanted to read the Bible in one year, so I did. Or I honestly tried to. I took notes on various subjects that interested me in the word. And If I skipped a day, I was keen on keeping up with my progress. As you can imagine, I was able to learn the Bible and cram verses, but I never really felt close to God. I watched sermons, and I had even learnt how to structure my prayers. I felt like I was on the right path to being a perfect Christian. 

Of late I understand why. I Made my relationship a series of goals to achieve, instead of focusing on seeping my actual relationship with a God. Instead if actually forming a real relationship with God, I was focused on keeping up with a bunch of plans. Instead of being more honest and transparent, I continued to try to be a “perfect Christian.”As you can imagine, that failed horribly. my life changed when I asked God to meet me in this place of brokenness and imperfection.

Now Instead of trying to portray the image of a perfect person, I’m letting him let His Glory shine in all me imperfections. Now, I’m asking Him to meet me here. At this place I am. Of brokenness and fear and anxiety. And because He is a good good father and an even more amazing God, He always meets me here. The beautiful thing about Christianity is that we are not called to perfection. So instead of trying to be perfect and have it all together, ask God to meet you in the place you are. With whatever you are struggling with, and with everything you’re afraid of.

As I celebrate another year around the sun, this is my prayer. That God continues to meet me at this place of brokenness and imperfection. That He continues to answer me when I cry to Him. To be my forever Father

He’s waiting for YOU.

❤️ Love,

Kimie
