Someone once told me that the best thing about being confused is that your at the verge of learning a really great lesson.I hope that is true because for some reason am team learning great lessons as long as its not the proverbial hard way.And as usual this first statement has nothing to do with what am writing about which am also about to figure out.Unserious? maybe but like Pastor Joel Osteen likes to start with something funny, i like to start with a tit-bit of wisdom.
It came to my attention recently that this my blog will be making a year on 12th February.Shocked? Me too my friend.First of all( i do not know why i use that whole first of all thing all the time) this was not the plan.Meaning the day I started blogging I really hoped that I would have more articles written by the end of the first year, but well that ship sailed or more like capsized so we are moving on. My plan is to have posted at least my tenth article by this baby’s 1st birthday which is very ambitious considering its 30th JAN today.That is why instead of researching for my exhausting moot question or reading for my jurisprudence,equity or negligence classes tomorrow am sitting in front of a computer typing away.I wouldn’t call it the smartest move considering my team-mate is all up in my business about the research but sometimes a girl just needs to be blogging okay especially when she just found out she passed the nightmare that was the law of sales exam.
I will be the first to tell you that some stuff I post these few days leading up to her birthday maybe pretty unreadable but I am on a mission to hit the 10 posts mark so if your reading please endure a few more highly unedited work and typos then after post number 10 we shall get back to the real stuff that I post after a pen and paper preparatory session and by the way I still do not know what this post is going to be about.
Before my former life came to an unexpected end a few years ago I used to be extremely closed off and by that I mean I had the do not disturb sign up all the time.I placed myself in a place where you had to be extremely courageous to even ask me what my name is,was am not sure.Reason,still working on it but I have a few ideas or two but the winner is that I always wondered what my approval rate was.
One of my friends is in the habit of getting into arguments with me about my faith and how unrealistic it is to be christian and recently he even suggested I change churches because apparently Watoto church is not exactly christian enough.Usually I do not indulge him because I always say God is God so He requires no man’s approval but this particular time I decided I was going to tell him quite a few things as Chicky would say so here goes….
The number one reason the first thing I say about myself,when am asked to introduce myself besides my name, is that I am a Christian is because I no longer wonder what my approval rate is because I am very much aware that I am a product of a perfect God and with that comes clarity.
Clarity that everything has been caused to work together for my good,
Clarity that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and nothing gets better looking than that.
Clarity that the Almighty God has my name written in the palm of His hand
Clarity that I cannot be forsaken,forgotten or left behind
Clarity that lines have for me in pleasant places so I have a Godly heritage
Clarity that as soon as I need help there is a very present helper on my speed dial
Clarity that as long as I have breathe in me I cannot fail
Clarity that nothing can get between me and God,not even angels stand a chance
Clarity that for all things,physical, spiritual or otherwise I have an abundant source
Clarity that with God my approval rate never changes and that is definitely a good thing.
Well I could go on but I just realized you that you read the word clarity long enough chances are you may bite your tongue and we do not want that now do we? So the answer to why I am a christian is that life is so much better with a good dose of clarity to go with it
