This little blog of mine began in 2013, originally a blog dedicated to young women and the topics that are important to them, like modesty, purity and so on. In 2015, I felt a very clear calling from God, and knew He was telling me that it was time to move on from the casual blogging and to step up to the plate, so to speak, and change the blog entirely. And so “Modesty Is My Policy” became The Divine Presence. The Lord has placed a huge burden on my heart for lost souls and evangelism. I take great inspiration from His people, such as Elisabeth Elliot, Amy Carmichael, Jim Elliot, A.W. Tozer, Leonard Ravenhill, Charles Spurgeon, Oswald Chambers, John Bunyan and etc. God’s true followers are far and few in between, and what this world needs is a revival. We need revival in our churches, our Christian homes, in our lives. We need to see Christian people rise up and fight against sin as the disciples did. It is my prayer that this blog encourages fellow Christians to stand firm and fight the good fight, to stand up for Jesus boldly and without apology. You may not be called to be a pastor, but you are called to be a preacher, so let us preach the gospel and be fishers of men. Let us show this world how powerful and amazing our Lord is. Let us be salt and light in a sin darkened world.
I was born again when I was seven years old, then baptized in 2007. I later rededicated my life to the Lord after a long season of backsliding due to anxiety and doubt over my salvation. As John Bunyan once said in his book Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, “it was not my good frame of heart that made my righteousness better, nor yet my bad frame that made my righteousness worse; for my righteousness was Jesus Christ Himself, the same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever” and thanks to Jesus Christ and His grace, He pulled me back to His arms and I have dwelt happily there since then. I have always had a love for writing, and He has allowed me to use this blog to reach people, both born again and unsaved, and to share the gospel with them. My life verses can be found in 2nd Timothy chapter 4, verses 2-5. While in the middle of a society that is so against the things of God, I strive to remember these words, to preach the word despite everything, to follow Christ Jesus and seek after His Holy Righteousness, and to finish the race as the Apostle Paul inspired us to do.
If you have any questions, concerns and/or comments, you can reach me on Facebook @The Divine Presence – A Christian Blog, Instagram @thedivinepresence or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to speak with you!
2 Timothy 4:2-5
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
“Lost! Lost! Lost! Better a whole world on fire than a soul lost! Better every star quenched and the skies a wreck than a single soul to be lost!” – Charles Spurgeon.
