I did a thing.
In my previous post, I talked about my spiritual journey thus far. This post begins my spiritual journey moving forward.
I had been searching, long before I decided to fully make a comeback to the church actually, for a place that I would like and feel at home. Countless google searches, Instagram stalking and wondering led me to nothing. I knew what I wanted when it came to finding a church home but struggled so bad when trying to find it, which I thought was weird considering I live in a pretty big city.
The night I had my come to Jesus moment was the night I started my search again and was basically going to refresh my memory of one of the ones I was going to settle on. But this time, another church popped up and to my surprise, was exactly what I was looking for! Non-denomination like I wanted and a younger atmosphere; a place where I know everyone would be on the same path as I.
I stalked their Instagram and fell in love even more through videos and pictures. I couldn’t wait until the next Sunday to finally experience what it was like in person. My intuition was telling me that it was going to be a right fit.
From the moment I walked in, I knew I made the right choice. Everyone was welcoming and inviting and really warm hearted. The praise and worship team did an amazing job with setting the atmosphere and at one point, I felt all the emotions of why I returned to the church rush into me and man, was it an amazing feeling.
When the Pastor got up to speak, he felt on his heart and began to manifest into everyone’s’ lives over so many things; things I in particular needed to hear. Even as he read through his sermon, I felt it was created just for me. It reminded how much I couldn’t do life by myself and how much I truly need a foundation.
Then it happened.
I rededicated my life and it felt so good. I felt free and happy and now I know I’ll forever have someone in my corner when the going gets tough. That’s the important part that I often forgot. I thought that because I was saved, my life would be rainbows and cotton candy all the time. No, it wouldn’t and I have to keep telling myself that so I won’t ever have to question my spirituality again. It just means that I forever have someone in my corner, forever knowing that everything happens for a reason and to not stress. That I will forever have someone to talk to when I’m feeling down and out.
So that’s where I’m at. Feeling secure about everything in life. And though things won’t go in my favor, I know it’s going to be for the best. Now I ask myself, what now?
