I believe in God!!!

This post is my view...it is not fiction...it is real!!!
I don't know how to start this...so I'll just start!
I believe in God because I have experienced Him personally and I came to realise He is real...His love for me is unfathomable and this has been demonstrated in several aspects of my life...
At some point in my life, I decided to stop playing church and stop being your usual nominal Christian and just go all out to know Him...so I sought to discover God for me(He truly doesn't hide Himself from those that diligently seek Him)

God is real...I realised this and experienced it through different situations I went through and how were it not for his grace,I wouldn't be!
When I lost my mum many years back, He showed up as my Comforter, I don't know how I went through that phase in my life, but all I know is His grace saw me through...in retrospect, I know I never could have survived that ordeal without God on my side.

When you've been broke,bust and disgusted like I've been...then you know what it means when I saw He's been my Provider...at some point in time,I passed through a phase,I had no job and I didn't lack!Somehow...He pulled through for me...this built my faith in God in no small measure,so now when I say God is my Provider...please understand I mean it in all it's entirety

How can I not believe in a God that broke away all my insecurities, my issues...when I felt I was unlovable and undesirable, He sent strangers to show me and teach me to break away from my fears! He then planted good friends and support around me to keep me grounded...He built my confidence through His words and made me understand that I am an eagle,I was born to soar high above the clouds...

How can I not believe in a God who showed me mercy when I deserved condemnation...I can't count the number of times He came through for me when I did not in the least bit deserve it.
My sister sometimes says that God is partial to me...there's nothing and I honestly mean nothing I've asked God for that He hasn't given me albeit in His own time...but He answers...how can I not believe in such a God...that hears and responds as well...
I believe in God because I know He lives and He speaks... He uses the mundane things of life to speak to me...even obscure things are used are used as well!
He gave me hope when I was hopeless(as in proper proper hopeless)...not just hope that I will be successful on earth,but also hope that if I cross over to the great beyond today,He has prepared a place for me (and the place is real whether we believe it or not...check for peoples' experiences)...I used to think "self confidence" and determination will get me there...but these could only take me so far...

Sometimes things happen in our lives and we call it mere coincidence...God thought me to not take things like this for granted because nothing happens by chance...I learnt though His deeds in my life to make Him my "be-all and end-all"

I believe in God because he is a faithful God...even when I am faithless, He doesn't change from who He is...at a point in my life,I gave God boundaries...like God I surrender this part of my life to you...but just hold on a sec, I'll handle the other part...yet He remained faithful and kept showing me His favour....tangible ones that made me say "wow" and made me realise without a shadow of doubt that of a truth, there's a God.
...If you don't know God or have a personal relationship with Him, I think He is worth discovering and experiencing...for yourself...
YES!!!
He's all that and even much more...

Jaycee said...

Its crazy how we all know God by the name that matches our EXPERIENCE in finding Him.

Yet, He is our "All-in-All." This was truly deep, and I am privileged to be able to share your story and give God all the glory. I believe that when we lift Him up, we will be lifted with Him. May you be lifted higher than you can ever even dare to imagine, in Jesus Name. Amen.

This post is an eye opener and it helped me realise how much I've been unappreciative I've been of God and his faithfulness in recent times. God has been so good to most of us and yet we tend not to realise this as we hardly give him the thanks he deserves. His mercies are unending and even when we tend to fall, he's always there to pick us up again and again. Yes, I believe in God!

Nice post, NoLimit! Keep it up!

NoLimit said...

@Simeone...the best time to start is right now!!!you'll love it!

@Believer@Thanks for stopping by...lol NoLimit simply means...there's no limit to God's grace,mercies,favour,freedom,joy,happiness etc in my life and on the under hand, there's no limit to what I can do/achieve...the only limit is in my mind...

@Standtall...For real?Yes I've been to his blog...actually he's on my bloglist!!!

@Buki..Thanks gal...He sure is real!
@princessa...we will all keep believing!

@SolomonSydelle...thanks for stopping by...I loved your post on this too...very inspiring!

@Jaycee...re:"Its crazy how we all know God by the name that matches our EXPERIENCE in finding Him."
I guess that's what happens when we personally search for Him...each person's experience is different...yet the same!Thanks for the prayer!

@Platinum Diva...Wow!!! thanks for stopping by...Tell Him you want to know Him...ask Him into your life...get to know Him through His words...and VOILA!!! you're on your way to knowing Him...It is an amazing journey of discovery...

@Gbengasile...I feel you man!...to be honest we are all guilty of this at some point in time...I pray mercy keeps prevailing...

I really thought I already commented on this entry...hmm, not sure what happened.

This is such a beautiful testimony and I am so glad that you can not only see what God has done in your life, despite the challenges you've faced, but that you can also glorify His name. This is great!

PS - Stop firsting your heart out and write a blog entry!!!

It surely takes alot to truely know him, but when you do; nothing can be like it. Thanks for sharing this. May He steady your feet on his path.

Congrats!!!
Our God is a God of NOWNOW!
that's the nu slang in town.
Sometimes, all people need is and idea of something or someone supreme...it takes extra hardwork, research and pure steadfastness to be able to experience that God is truly r.e.a.l.

First time here I think, loving your blog.
