I got into a relationship with this girl not too long ago, about two years ago. I knew the right thing to do. I knew what God’s word said. I was wanting to follow God but she wasn’t. I knew this before I went into the relationship. God revealed this to me before then. I still went ahead and did what I wanted to do. I dated this girl and it led to things that I wish wouldn’t have happened. To some people, it may not seem bad but to some people, it might seem horrible. I just know that I went through a time in my life where I willingly rebelled against God and said, “I’m going to do what I want to do rather than what you want to do.” If I wasn’t saved at that time, I probably wouldn’t be here today because that was a time when I completely turned my back to God when I was a Christian.
I realized that even when I am faithless he is still faithful. Like in Philippians when it says, “The one who began a good work in you is faithful to complete it.” That verse is so true in my life. Even though I can do whatever I want to do and I can do all of these things, God is not going to give up on me. It humbles me to think back on that and other things that I have done too. I am not perfect and I never will be. Just looking back on instances where I have gone against God or His word, I look back now and see how God was patient with me. He didn’t give up on me. That’s humbling.
I know there are going to be a lot more times where I don’t obey him and I do other things. It’s comforting to know that God who created everything is still there with you and He is patient with you.
