years old my heart was broken and empty. I felt worthless, dead. My soul was dark and heavy. There was no light in my life. My mind was filled with bad memories, especially memories from my last relationship, and that someone had to pay, even with their life. My thoughts were bitter and I wanted revenge.
My life was over and it shouldn't have ended that way. So much bad things had happened to me in my life. I knew I wasn't a bad person, but somehow I had ended-up alone, in shambles, with nothing, after trying for so long in my life to be good and to do good. So at the age of forty-two, saddled with my disappointment and pain, I went to Jesus.
I didn't know what to expect, but I knew that I had to talk to someone about my life and I needed Christ to listen, even though He might have already known everything.
Fearlessly, I talked to Jesus and He listened. Then I told Him that something has to be done.
But oops!, Jesus did something to me that I did not suspect or expect:
He took my burdens, cleaned me and gave me a new soul filled with peace.
He told me He loved me, even from the beginning and He has never failed me
yet; but I have always walked according to man. He made me realise that He had always been standing by me and it was He who has kept me through-out all my ups and downs. He gave me a better life. He filled my heart with the joy of His salvation and put a smile back on lips.
He is teaching me His righteousness, how to walk in His Spirit and overcome all the things of the flesh (sin), which keeps us as human beings, whom He created without blemish, separated from Him.
Finally, through Jesus Christ my Stumbling Block, I have triumphed in my life. He stopped me from sinking further into the endless pit of sin, by taking away my need for revenge. He blessed me with a clean way of living, Christianity.
As a new Christian in the Body of Christ, I renew my mind and refresh my spirit daily, for I am constantly reminded all around me that satan never stops working and neither will I for Christ, my Stumbling Block...oops!
