This year so far

18 November 2012
When I created this blog I was supposed to use it as a platform to help me grow spiritually. It was to be my journey in spirit and in faith. I have so slacked on updates. I intend to give this blog more love in 2013. Though there is no time like the present. So what I aim to do going forward is share what I learn in church through self study and Bible studies classes.

Which brings me to today. I was presented with a Certificate for completing my church's Basic Bible Study Course which covers all the foundation topics. Topics covered:

  • Salvation
  • Sin
  • Water Baptism
  • The Church
  • Baptism in the Holy Spirit
  • Communion
  • Power of the Tongue
  • Principles of Giving
  • Praise and Worship
  • Prayer and Faith
I have also been a constant attendee to the advance classes too. At one point I was attending twice a week as my thirst for knowledge grows. God provided a way for me to attend these classes and I am so thankful. 

For years I thought I was not worthy enough to be Baptised. During the class on water Baptism I got my answers. I was so moved that I had to make a choice and no longer had an excuse. In fact my excuse and reasoning became redundant. So in April of this year I got Baptised. Had I had the knowledge years ago I would have taken the big dip back then. Though this year was my time and I am so happy for it. So many of my friends have also been born again in recent years. Which reminds me of the prophet who attended my church's conference last year who quoted this verse from the Bible 
And in that day the Lord shall again lift up His hand a second time to recover (acquire and deliver) the remnant of His people which is left, from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from Elam [in Persia], from Shinar [Babylonia], from Hamath [in Upper Syria], and from the countries bordering on the [Mediterranean] Sea.
Isaiah 11:11(Amp)

I am also now more pro-active in my church then I was before and my sons love Sunday school.

You are the Most High God

23 August 2012
This song "You are the Most High God" is a favourite sung at my church. I am trying to find the version my church sings but alas. I have discovered that this song is a traditional African gospel song.

Marvin Sapp - My Testimony

30 June 2012
This song by Marvin Sapp is truly amazing. It reminds me a bit of my very own testimony I gave when I got baptised. Being happy to still be here, healthy well and not going crazy. When I look back on my life and the things I experienced I could be in a worst position but God's grace has kept me sane and kept me moving forward. If anyone is feeling down and needs a pick me up. This song will encourage them.

Keep Calm and Trust God

That is how faith works.

Where I am now

14 March 2012
I have not posted in a while. I have always intended to get a new post out as often as possible but unfortunately that has not happened. I have been attending Bible Studies at my Church which has been helping me to grow spiritually. New blog posts will be coming very soon.  If you have any suggestions for ways to develop this blog please leave a comment.

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus (spoken word)

11 January 2012
Hope this year has started off brilliant for you. I just happen to see this video on twitter and was so moved by it that I shared it with my FB and BBM friends straight away. Looking at more of the videos by Jefferson Bethke (youtube channel = bball1989), he is definitely worth listening too.
