5 Reasons I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in life

HappinessSo by this point you should have read all my prior posts and had the chance to get to know my story.

If you haven’t yet, then this post may not make sense to you…in that case I suggest you check out the home page and start by reading there because I have laid out the foundation of the best way to navigate the site in order for you to have the best experience possible 🙂

Now, if you have already read my prior posts, then stay tuned because I am going to be sharing with you about my life today.

As a Christian (I know I make the distinction between Christian and Christ Follower but it tends to confuse people so I will use the word Christian from here on out, until I can direct you to some resources that have taught me the difference between the two terms).

I have been a Christian for a year and 3 months now (as of August 2015). I must say that since I have accepted Jesus into my life…this has been THE BEST 15 months of my entire life! 🙂Eagle

I will share 5 amazing things that have changed in my life these last 15 months, making it the best time ever!

Each one of these events are blessings that came from God and only entered into my life because of him.

Because of his Grace, I was able to understand my true identity and am now on the path to living a more fulfilled life 🙂

For each and every one of these blessings and many more that I have not mentioned here…all the glory and praise goes to God my Father.

Because of Him, all of this has been made possible in my life and I pray that you would seek a relationship with God and see that he can change your life too.

Claire & Matt1. God has given me THE BIGGEST & BEST blessing I could have ever asked for in my life

The biggest and best blessing I could have ever asked for…my girlfriend Claire. You guys know my story and my biggest insecurity.

So it should be no surprise to hear that once I started pursuing a relationship with Jesus that he would ultimately bring healing, redemption, and restoration to one of the deepest wounds in my life.

I often tell her how she is, “my favorite girl in the world.” 🙂 Besides my Father God, I love Claire more than anything else in this world. I love her with all my heart and I thank God for her every day! Okay not literally every day, but seriously almost every single day.

I will save the story of how I met Claire for a separate post, because it is incredible how God orchestrated everything, plus I would take way too long to try to explain it in here lol.

Victory2. I’ve overcome my porn addiction!

It has been almost 2 years now since I have overcome my porn addiction (21 months as of August 2015).

Most often, I used to watch porn every day, multiple times a day and to see how far I’ve come has been amazing. It is only because the genuine relationship I now have with Jesus 🙂

Jeremiah 29:13 says, “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”

 

So again, I am not here asking you guys to become Christians, but I want to show you what my life with Christ looks like and I genuinely want you to have the same!

3. I have a better relationship with my brother than I ever could’ve imagined

Brotherly LoveMy older brother, Nick, I love so much. I have a deeper relationship with my brother than I could have ever imagined and I am so thankful to God for it 🙂

My brother and I fought all the time growing up together. When we went off to college, we became (at that point) closer than ever.

This was because the distance and living apart. Neither of us were Christians through most of college yet we still felt close to each other. This was primarily because we shared the same lifestyle of drinking, partying, and chasing girls.

Once I had been pursuing God for a little over a year, I had finally proclaimed and accepted Jesus into my life as my Lord and Savior.

I remember being afraid to tell my brother but late one night, we had the house to ourselves and I talked to my brother about it and how I felt my life changing for the better.

Sure enough, my brother not only heard what I was saying… but more powerful than that, he saw that I was talking about was genuine and real and he wanted the same for his life. So he started pursuing a relationship with Jesus and now my brother and I have the deepest connection ever.Brotherly Love 2

None of the credit or praise goes to me. God used me for his glory…being part of something way bigger than myself and life on earth, wow!

All the credit, glory, and honor I happily give to my Father in heaven 🙂

 

It has been the best time of my life with my brother since we have both accepted Jesus into our lives and happily choose to walk the path of Life together.

“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” -Psalms 16:11

After finishing my post, I realized I write a lot to explain things. This makes sense because I do the same thing in real life when I am talking to people lol.

So, take a quick break, give your eyes a rest, then head on over to part two to see my last 2 reasons! 🙂
