I remember when I first accepted Christ; it was life-breathing. I could go into endless detail about how liberated, happy, and joyful I became. Before Christ, I didn’t experience eternal joy due to being empty, but the very moment Christ stepped in, it was if I was a new girl who was wiped clean, and I was!
A month after my walk with Christ started, I began to write letters to God about all the questions I had. My faith was very new, and there were a lot of things I did not know, At the time I started journaling, I just started reading the Bible on my own, I just started to hear God’s voice, and I didn’t even know where to start in my journey of faith.
I wanted to know what He had in store for me, and I wanted to learn how I could serve Him, so I decided to write directly to God in my journal, and it is filled with letters, poems, summaries, and devotions.
I might have only been a 1 month old Christian when I first wrote to God, but I didn’t let that stop me from dwelling in the presence of God, for I was a girl after God’s heart.
I wanted God, I wanted His love, and I wanted Him to lead me towards the life He had for me, and here I am 7 years later and I can see how far He has taken.
I am still a young woman after God’s heart, and though seasons may be changing in my life, I will always seek Christ and the Kingdom. Even when I get married to a man one day, I still plan on being a girl after God’s heart. Even after I have children who are growing up and require much of my time, I will still be a girl after God’s heart, and even after times of pain and sorrow, I will still be a girl after God’s heart.
“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
When I accepted Christ, I was dead to my old self and alive in Christ. It is no longer I who lives, but it is He who lives inside of me. My life is not my own, but it is for God’s glory. All that I do is for Him, and it is to represent His Kingdom, His power, and His righteousness.
We live in a society where women are godless, ruthless, careless, and loud. Women aren’t delicate anymore, women aren’t feminine anymore, and women aren’t godly anymore. Women have stopped seeking God’s heart and started to seek the riches of the world. Women began believing the lies of feminism and tabloid lies, and if you look at their lives, then you will see that their marriages are falling apart, their children are wild, and their lives are in flames.
Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23
They yell “Why God,” but the don’t realize that their lives went in flames the moment they stopped seeking God’s heart. God’s heart is full of strength, peace, joy, love, hope, grace, and mercy. When you begin to seek after a world full of deceit, pain, lies, temporary pleasure, and harm, then don’t ask God “Why” when you were the one who stopped guarding your heart.
Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.” Proverbs 31:25
A woman who seeks the heart of God will find it, a woman who seeks the heart of God finds strength and honor through Jesus Christ, and a woman who seeks the heart of God is worth more than rubies.
She is more precious than rubies,
And all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.” Proverbs 3:15
Nothing on this earth can compare to a woman who trusts God, who loves God, and who seeks God, so why seek the world when you are considered priceless in God’s eyes? Sure, this world is full of temptations that “looks good,” but temptation the power to destroy you in ways that you never thought were possible.
If you look at the way femininity has been attacked lately, then you will see how far women have walked away from God. Always be a person after God’s heart, because Satan is out to kill, steal, and destroy.
I will always be a woman seeking after God’s heart for His promises never run out.
I will always be a woman seeking after God’s heart for He knows my future,
I will always be a woman seeking after God’s heart for He is merciful,
“And he said:
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
And naked shall I return there.
The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away;
Blessed be the name of the Lord.”” Job 1:21
Even when I am married, a mother, and have all I dreamed of, I will aways be a woman seeking after God’s heart, because God can give and take away, and I don’t want to ever become a woman who asks God “Why” when the people or things I love are taken away.
7 years ago, I became a Christian, and it was glorious and life-changing. 7 years ago, I began seeking God’s heart like David, and I haven’t stopped and I will not stop. Due to seeking God’s heart, He has given me a heart that is full of joy, peace, meekness, humility, and strength, and each day, my heart grows stronger in His promises.
When you seek God’s heart, His love overwhelms you, His Son will radiate within you, and you will begin to see Him working in your life.
My life entirely changed the moment I accepted Christ, and I will forever praise Him, for He is the Author of my life and story. Why would I follow the world when God has already won in the end? Why would I follow the world when God tells me that I will never be lead into disaster? Why would you follow the world, when God’s heart is full of love and grace for you?
Choose to be a person after God’s heart, becaus I can promise you that your walk with Christ with grow in ways you never thought were possible..
Be a person after God’s heart,
Be a person who seeks Christ,
And be a person who’s heart is full of the fruits of the Spirit,
Because when you choose to follow Him, you choose an eternity full of never-ending joy, and once that joy manifests into your life, why would you let this depressed world take that away?
