Becoming The Person God Has Designed Me To Be

A Transforming Year

I am going to begin this article by telling you about the trials that I went through that made me who I am today. I have always been a Christian but to be that Christ-like example, that real true Christian—that has not always been my motive or at least not always. Becoming on fire for the Lord, totally sold out and following His example—that I know has been His plan for me since the beginning and that is the testimony that I want to share with you.

During my younger years, God has always placed special people in my life such as teachers and friends. Also my mother who continually taught me the ways of being a Christ follower. When I was eighteen I began dating. Around a year later I was dating a girl that was wanting to take our relationship to the next level. That meant having sex. That was when I knew I had to decide which direction in life I was going to choose. I had witnessed others failing at relationships over this thing that I now call "Temporary Love."

True Love

What do I mean when I say "Temporary Love?" I am talking about a feeling that people confuse with love and that is only lust. I wanted something that would last. Best explained in my recent blog: People these days believe in temporary love rather then real love. Driven by lust and out to get what they want rather than caring for their significant other. If people are to have a good strong relationship, they need to base their concept of love just as this verse explained it... 1 Corinthians 13:4-7.

The Crossroad & Becoming A True Christ Follower

It was hard. During the time when I was at a cross-road in my life, that was when I was really intense about wanting a relationship. But I overcame it and that was the beginning of turning myself into the person I am today. I had to make that decision on my own terms without any limitations. After getting her out of my life it seemed that she was a big distraction. I began to grow a passion for writing and blogging and I was always writing new Christian articles. Later on I began a purity advocacy program. I guess you could say that the time of 2010 through 2012 was the years of my transformation.

Maybe you go to a church, maybe even have your names on the church's membership. But do you really belong to Christ? Have you ever felt His presence? I remember my first time was in the month of July. I was at the age of eighteen and I was at a church camp. That was when I knew that I was truly touched by the Lord. While worshiping Jesus and attending a group prayer, everyone including myself stared weeping while worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ. His presence was felt and I knew that He had always been there for me. Now I must become His all of the way! And that was not the last time that I experienced His presence. And with all of that said.... if you are really wanting to become the person that you need to be, then I advise you with this very quote: Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about discovering who God created you to be.
