Once I truly accepted the call of God for my life, I announced this to the church and they allowed me to preach my first sermon. And, wouldn’t you know it, then, my sleeping problems went away and I began to understand how the call of God could be so strong on your life if you refuse to obey.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
The greatest relationship you can develop is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Your relationship with the Son of God will make a difference in your total growth. I can say I've come to know Him in the pardoning of my sins. I've come to know the love of God the Father through His Son, Jesus, the Christ. I didn't just get to know Him; I grew up in a Christian home. My mom, being a Christian woman, was not only able to influence my father with her Christian belief, but also her faith is carried on in each of her children today. My father, an ordained African King, struggled with the principles of Christianity for sometime. Because of my mother's strong and unwavering faith, in due time he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. God is a good God! Oh, yes, He is.
Missionaries in Africa
Growing up, I noticed; however, the missionaries who were living on our land constructed beautiful homes and schools for themselves, while there was division in the church on Sunday. They even ministered the gospel in my native tongue, Tshiluba. It wasn't until later that I realized their discrimination and segregation. For one, they had running water and village people did not. Another thing was they built new development for their own people, but didn't build new developments for the people of the village. Thirdly, they didn't teach the people of the village how to build any thing. The good thing, though, was that I learned more about the Lord Jesus Christ. When I look back and think on how God used my mom, I remember her saying, "Jesus is the Son of the Living God. He is real. Just believe." A very devout Christian and one who always exercised her faith; my mom was the greatest teacher. Her relationship with the Lord was demonstrated everyday of her life.
When I lived with my brother in Kinshasa, I was active in the church as a choir director for many years. So when I came to America, I kept my Christian beliefs. Since, I knew the Lord, I knew His voice when He spoke to me on how to bring the vision to past. The relationship between you and God and you and your fellowman gives you the ability to fulfill the plan of God for your life.
