I can’t take credit for who I am today therefore, it behooves me to give credit where credit is due. According to Hebrews 12:2, Jesus is the author and finisher of my faith:
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross,
despising the shame and is set down at the right hand
of the throne of God.
Since childhood, I had this unfathomable desire for God beyond my years. But it took many more years for me to come into the knowledge of why, which then, I learned I was drawn by His Spirit. Perhaps this can explain why I was eager to be baptized (submerged) at the tender age of 9—and why I joined the youth choir and—why I continued pursuing the things of God. But this may very well prove my admiration—I had a crush on Jesus. This explains why I told my aunt that I love going to church.
I've come a long way since those humble beginnings.
My journey shifted to crying in the wilderness. I had just encountered a harsh reality. To seek comfort, I became entangled in the Word of God.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Having grown in faith became my saving grace. Now, in Him, I live, move, and have my being.
Nevertheless, I developed a voracious appetite for the things of God. It keeps me grounded. Beyond the local church, I seek spiritual inspiration from other sources, like radio and TV ministries. My knack for hearing the word of God caused me to line-up Pastors that I can glean from each Sunday, beginning with my very own Pastor.
Blessed are they which do hunger
and thirst after righteousness:
for they shall be filled.
