A Story of Repentance

BY HALI BENSON

I had my first awakening experience in December when I found out my sisters fiancé had passed away unexpectedly. I awoke to a phone call at four o’clock in the morning to my father crying telling me Justin had just passed away. In my dismay, I knelt to the ground and I cried to God…

“I cried out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me.” (Psalm 57:2)

It was on the floor that morning that God showed me some disobedience in my heart towards Him. I was essentially not obeying Him because I didn’t trust Him, but he took me to His word where he showed me stories of faith from believers who just had to believe in God, and He would take care of them. So, I began weeping in repentance for the lack of obedience towards God, He helped me know that I need to obey the calling He placed on my life and I needed to trust His will. I was just living day to day as if this is it (life on earth), but GOD awakened my soul to life again that day when Justin passed into eternal life with Jesus!

Since that day, God has specially placed people in my life to speak and circumstances to know that it isn’t going to be an easy task living out the God purpose for my life but there is an eternal Hope that keeps my eyes on the prize. …and search for it (wisdom and understanding) as for hidden treasures… (Proverbs 2:4) To search for God in your mundane and to seek His heart in the heart of others that Wisdom will be given to you.

Acts 3:19 says, “Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.”

Don’t waste a single second doubting God’s plan for your life, instead, repent for your doubt and step into it with a bold confidence that comes from the Holy Spirit working through you! Bless-ings.
