Abundant Grace!

Welcome to my page!

The LORD has inspired me to construct a platform to grasp fellow children of God and also future Children of God and tell them all I am learning.

The greatest testimony in my life is Jesus grace in my life. When we sin, he will not forsake us, his grace instead surrounds us and forgives us. So be refreshed and exalt the LORD.

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.  1 Peter 2:9

This year has been extremely challenging academically and it felt as if I had lost the favor of the LORD. The obstructions of life had caused me to drift away from the LORD because nothing seemed to be going my way and I was downright frustrated and disheartened. Everything around me appeared to be crashing and burning at my sides, I felt so alone. I was embarrassed and faint, the stress was unbarring. I wanted to give up.

I put in so much determination into my studies and it felt so dispiriting to see no fruit being reaped. I told the LORD,’ Lord I do not want to be disappointed and I do not want my failures pulling me away from you.’ I put everything to the LORD.

Now here’s the grace, even though I did not deserve good grades and I didn’t study as hard as I should have, the next day after my plea for help, the LORD gave me the highest marks in one of my classes.

During this wearisome time the LORD had given me a chapter in Jobs to read. Jobs 32. This was during the time Job was being tested, he was looking for God, but he either couldn’t see him or would miss him. He questioned whether God would vigorously oppose him, and the answer was, no, he would not press any charge against Job. That is grace!

Job 32:10 says,‘ But he knows the way I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.’ 

The motives of why God tests us are numerous, it can be to bring forth an heartening testament, or to enhance us, and make us gold, or it could be to bring back fear of the LORD which is wisdom. 

The Lord does put us through frustrating times, but it is to benefit us, and setbacks that are not from the Lord, remember, we are his chosen people, he wanted you and I, and he will be with us through all our endeavors.

Amen.
