How People Change

I was reading a fellow bloggers daily goings on and I thought to my self. Man I have not blogged in forever. so much has happened since April. My Grandson Gabriel was born on Jan 28th and what a amazing birth it was. I felt so lucky to be there and see him come into this world. I hope and pray that he will grow up to be a strong and faithful servant to the Lord.
It seems since I rejoined the church in November of last year, my life has changed so very much in just 8 months. Everything I do and say is about Jesus. I know this comes as a shock to a lot of people, but you don't understand the power of change God gives you when you receive the Holy Ghost. See, I am a One God, Apostolic, Holy Ghost Filled woman, Or simple terms, I am United Pentecostal. We believe in One God, Repentance, Being baptized in Jesus name, with the infilling of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It has forever changed my life and I am so thankful for it. I know this blog started out 4 years ago as a knitting blog with blackberry and weight loss content, but I  have to tell you it is now a personal walk with Jesus blog. I feel like writing down what God does for me on a daily basis will help someone out there with their journey and uplift them. We can not walk with God and not tell others of the greatness of what he does.
He has delivered me from drinking, smoking, being self centered, none caring, depressed, buying of electronics and other meaningless things. He is my rock and I will stand on him for all my needs.
I have to say since being in church my friends have all fell by the waste side. They don't understand why I don't want to see Magic Mike, or go to a party and drink. All I can say is, I want to live a Holy life without all the things that will keep me from walking closer to God. We have to be separate from the world so they will see our light shine. If we were not separate, how would they know we we different?
I'm sorry if this offends anyone that doesn't believe in God or that you don't have to change anything about your self to serve the Lord. My intent is to journal my Faith and my life to help those that seek the truth.
God Bless.
