I live my life to make a difference in someone elses life"
At twelve years old, I went on a spiritual quest of getting to know God the Father. We were taught by my parent that once you reach 12 years old your sins were on you. Your parent were no longer responsible for your sins. I wanted to know how to be forgiven of my sins, my mother told me that I had to receive Christ as my Saviour and be baptisted. I wanted to be baptised and receive the Holy spirit of God, so I could get forgiveness of my sins.
My mom told in order for me, in order for me to know God; that I would have to fast from playing all my childish games and pray. This quest for the knowledge of God and being a true servant of God wasn't an easy task or a game to me; because I didn't play with God. After fasting and faithfully praying to receive the Holy spirit. One Tuesday morning, I waken to being a new being in Christ Jesus and no one had to tell me anything ; because I knew the difference. There were many differences that I received by just knowing God.
At 12 Years old, I realized my breathing had changed to a deeper and calmer breathing. I realized that I had more compassion and love for my fellow man. The change of God that I went through made me joyful and I wanted to share my joy with others. Some people don't know what their ministry is in life, but I know my calling; it's to love, help, heal and give encouragement to the down trodden.
My ministry is to make a difference in someones life that's in need of a helping hand or just a cheerful word too send their way. Everytime I can bring joy into someones life it make me joyful. My problems are never so bad, that I can't put them on the shelf and help someone with theirs. I get intense pleasure for the joy and happiness of others, because if I can put a smile on someones face; or uplift a spirit, and can love my neighbor as my self, I'm doing a good work for God our father.
There's no shame in what I do, It's an honor and a pleasure to be called a child of God. I want to make a difference in this world to someone; so if I can be a blessing to anyone, I count it as joy to me.
