~Pouring my life out in worship, like Costly Oil~
Meet Karen Boyd-Williams...
I am a church girl, born and bred. I am a pastor’s kid (PK), raised on the south side of Chicago, who grew up knowing nothing but church. That had its benefits and its drawbacks, all of which I continue to learn as I grow older. But one important thing you should know about me is that I decided to have a relationship with God for myself. My parents could not and did not force that piece. God pricked my heart, letting me know that I could never be “perfect” or “ready” enough for Him without Him, that I was not “missing out” on anything by refusing to accept Him, that I could not continue to take advantage of His grace by assuming that I had more time to “sin” before I made that commitment, and a whole wealth of other things which I used as cheap excuses.
I am sold out to God. I believe His Word. I believe there is nothing impossible for Him, nothing impossible with Him, and nothing impossible through Him. Call me a Bible thumper, a fanatic, or ridiculous–I’ve heard it all before–and it still won’t change how I feel about my Father.
I personally love testimonies: they give me hope, inspiration, and new joy. So if I can help “just one somebody” (lol! Those are words to an old gospel song, for those of you who don’t know. Oh, and by the way, I think I’m funny too, lol!) by sharing my journey, including its bumps, bruises, and hiccups, then it is worth the transparency, and I believe that I am also helping to fulfill God’s purpose for my life.
"Now thanks be unto God Who always causes us to triumph." ~II Corinthians 2:14
