The Journey with Christ

Hey Guys & Happy new month! :)

Yeah I know, its been so long since my last post (feels like years right) but I've just had so much going on which really took up my time...BUT I'm back & by the grace of God back with regular posts too!
So, as you can probably tell by the title I've got something different today and in regards to the change of my blog name I've decided to open it up to a wider range of posts (rather than just fashion related). 
Firstly starting with my 'Journey with Christ'.

I reached a point in my life where things began to fall apart, stress was piling up & 'struggle got real'; this all started from the middle of last year (I'm not going to go into detail of what happened as I'd be writing an essay otherwise) when personal issues started arising and it felt like they were all growing at the same time! Now through all these months my faith in God was truly tested, I learnt a lot about my self, working on my patience & also having determination to stay strong. 
In relation to his Holy word; Matthew 8:26-27 we notice how Jesus says to his disciples 'Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?' which particularly reached out to me, because that is exactly what the problem was 'little faith', through many difficulties one thing I've realised is faith in God is the main thing, faith that all things are possible through him! & yes I'm saying this whilst still working on progressing my faith with him but even the tiniest bit of faith in God can really make a difference. (Matthew 17:20); So for example, you pray to God putting your requests before him & instead of saying "God please give me this... & God do this for me..." you begin to put the requests before him whilst praying with assurance e.g "I have faith that you have done it already God, Thank you for doing this for me" etc. That is a sign of faith, because you are showing God that you trust him as you begin to thank him before you actually see the miracles he is about to perform in your life.
There comes a point in life where you realise that all you really have is GOD, there will be a stage where you need someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on & you feel like everyone has turned their backs on you but God (Our lord and personal saviour) still stands with open ears & arms, available to listen & comfort us whenever we need him. So what you do is cry out to him, laying out all your troubles and requests and he will surely answer (Matthew 11:28-30).

It may feel like the stress is getting too much to handle, mountains standing in the way are getting higher & the tunnel you are walking through is getting darker but when you have faith just know that God can move all mountains, all that stress that is worrying you & making you feel like nothing is going right- HE can turn them to minor things that won't even bother you any more.
I definitely haven't recovered from stress just yet & the struggle still goes on but one important thing I have learnt through all the trials and tribulations is that every piece of struggle we go through is a test, a lesson learnt & also an obstacle put before us to cross and get closer to God; it may feel like it is never ending yes, but when the time is right God will set you free & through all principalities he will always remain your shield & buckler (Psalms 30:5). God wants us to see that he is here to support us, he wants us to know that when we trust in him all the struggles we go through now will become minor stepping stones that we can leap over in due time. This is what we call the Journey with Christ, in getting closer to God the devil brings forth problems to our lives in hope that we will give up but as we stand firm and keep going God continues to embrace us whilst planning many joyful moments to come.

Finally, I would like to end this post with a little something which I hope reaches out to you; Stay strong & remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

God bless you all & I hope you all have a great Easter ahead :)
