In the beginning

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, ‘let there be light’, and there was light. – Genesis 1

Everything must have a beginning. This post is the beginning of my blog that I have decided to start up, a decision unsurprisingly made past 12am when it would be far wiser to sleep, since I have to go to work in the morning. Nevertheless, I’d rather begin sooner than later, as once this is published, I will be more inclined to continue writing and less inclined to find an excuse not to.

If it wasn’t already clear from the quote at the top, I am a Christian and have been for the past 5 months. Although that is arguably a very short period of time, a lot has happened, a lot has changed, and most importantly, I’m excited about it.

As a student studying A-levels, working a part-time job (that I’m paid peanuts for), trying to fit in a social life, singing in pubs to earn extra cash, and aiming to prioritise those four things correctly, you may wonder how on earth I can find the time for religion.

It’s actually very easy. Devote your life to God, and your trust and faith in Him will completely change. You will never be afraid, you will never be alone, and you will never struggle, because God will reach out His hand to you.

Why? Because He loves you.

Regardless of your sin, your wrongdoings, your bad choices, The Lord will always forgive you, and it will never be too late to repent. A year ago, I was a very strong and stubborn atheist that denied God and would argue until my face was blue that He did not exist. I was oblivious to all the things He did for me, even when I was certain He was just fiction; another proof that God has unconditional love for each one of us (trust me, I was horrible). But I soon discovered that love, and I cannot imagine life without it.

However, this is not religion, although that is the term I used earlier on, but this is a relationship with Jesus, with God, with the Holy Spirit; this is pure love. This is protection from temptation, peace in myself and others, strength to face struggle, salvation, a second chance, the truth.

This is the beginning.

  1. I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours nowadays, yet I never discovered any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty value sufficient for me.
    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the
    internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. Because the world needs more preachy as fuck ‘teenager that’s completely lost in who they are and is so obsessed with labels’ blog posts…

    1. “He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.”
      ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭18:16-19
      I pray that one day you will discover the Holy Spirit…never is it too late for salvation. God bless X
