Hello dear brother/sister in Christ, thank you for taking time to learn about this website. My name is Florence, I hope that you will stay with me while I explain the reason for this blog in the next few lines.
I was a teacher for over 5 years, I finished my PGCE in 2005 and started teaching in a great sixth form college in the same year. In 2008, I became very ill, not so ill that it was terminal but ill enough for me to contemplate suicide. It was a very dark and lonely time for me but I thank God that He blessed me with my husband Eke who was and is a great support to me.
During that time I learnt many things, and it enabled me to form a deeper and closer relationship with God, which I now know wouldn’t have been possible without going through the trial of illness. Even though I am not fully healed now, I believe that God will heal me and that I have already received healing in the spiritual realm through Christ Jesus.
I am still in the process of learning and the biggest discovery or revelation I have made to date is that I am the Vessel of God, and it is because of and through this revelation my desire is to learn to treat my body which is the temple of God with the respect and love that I deserve. (Please read more about this revelation in my article on Shalom Candles).
This blog will focus on my experiences of trying to treat my self in accordance with God’s will, as a Holy temple and a vessel set aside for His own good use. There is a particular emphasis on health and well-being because of my own personal circumstances so I hope that this blog will be of benefit to other people struggling with ill-health.
God Bless you child of the Most High God
