Reflection: Part I
As I approach the 1-year mark of when I started my blog…I realize I have so much to reflect upon! Not just over what has taken place throughout this past year, but the journey that became my motivation for FINALLY sharing my thoughts with the world (after my big sis Marjorie encouraged me to do SEVERAL years ago). MY spiritual journey slowly began in 2010-2011. I emphasized MY because up to that point although I was baptized at the age of 12, I was still living based on my parent’s faith and had yet to begin working out my own salvation. We read an example of the importance of New Testament Christians being diligent in their spiritual walk in Philippians 2:12-13:
“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have obeyed-not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill His good purpose.” (NIV)
This is an essential part of Christian living.
Allow me to rewind for a moment.
