I used to believe that once I got saved, everything would just work out the way I wanted it. Perfect!
I soon found out that that was not so!
You see, accepting Christ is like being given the tools. Without God I was trying to build my house, a.k.a my life, with just me. Using my hand to drive in nails, my teeth to cut wood. ..it was taking a lot of effort and was becoming quite painful.
When I said yes to Christ, I was awarded a tool box. In this box, I now had everything I needed to build my future.
Now, it doesn’t mean that life won’t happen, it’s just that I’m no longer doing this alone. God has equipped me, with the tools, to live my best life.
