Let’s get straight to the point, shall we.
We all know that here on earth, our parents stand in the place of God, right? Now, that would mean that if you are obiedient to your parents, then there is a 99% chance you will also be quick to obey God, is it not?
Well…it’s sad to admit, but that is not always the case. There is still that 1% that goes rampant.
And, how do I know that?
As you know, I grew up in the church. My parents made an amazing job of raising me, and I was very obedient then. Still am, just meant back then. Hehe! Anyway, that did not guarantee that I would be obedient to God. I thought I was okay. I knew he was calling me to fully surrender my life to Him, yet since I thought I was good, I did not listen.
I went to church; I dressed modestly; I ate correctly; I was obedient and respectful to my parents and I did my part in being a help in the home—not to mention my good grades in school. I was perfect…but only in my eyes.
Truth is I was being stubborn. Although I was seemingly a perfect girl, I lacked that close relationship with God. And it took so much suffering for me to see that I was terribly wrong. For God to decide to use such measures with me—wow…I was one stubborn girl.
I know that there are many people who are like I was back then. And I just need to tell you that you should not wait till you are in such circumstances as I. Believe me, it’s very painful. I do not wish what happened to me even to my worst enemy.
I’ll tell you what happened…in the next article. See you then!
