When and Why Did You Decide to Pursue This Dive?
I chose to pursue this dive formally on the 26th of September 2020. I chose to pursue this dive because I want to learn more about God. I want to grow in Him and serve Him with all of my heart. I want to know how.
How Long Did It Take For You To Accomplish This Dive At This Level From The Day You Decided To Pursue It, And Why Did It Take That Long?
It took a while to decide that I wanted to be a true child of God, a true Christian. Not by religion but by a true and strong relationship with God. It took me 15 years to be sure about this decision.
What Was The Hardest Part About Achieving This Dive Level?
The hardest part for me would be having to leave a lot of things behind. Having to surrender and decide to come under the authority of God. Making the decision to submit was the hardest.
What Was The Easiest Part About Achieving This Dive Level?
What made it easy was the greatness of God. I could see His love all around me and I needed no soothsayer to tell me that I needed Him. Also, he kept drawing me to Him, his love, his beauty, and peace. These things attracted me like iron to magnet.
What Is Your Advice For Someone Who Is Pursuing This Dive And Level?
I’d advise you to be sure that you want to do it. The road is narrow and uneasy but your trust should be in Jesus’ name. Your confidence should be in the assurance that God will hold your hands all the way. He’ll never let you go. You’re not on your own.
What Are Some Of The Best Resources You Recommend to Those Pursuing This Dive at This Level, And Why Do You Recommend Them? Please Include Relevant Weblinks, If Applicable.
- I recommend the Bible. The bible is some of God’s word in document. It reveals things about God to you and opens your eyes to the knowledge of His person.
- I’d also recommend the YouVersion app. It provides over 20 different translations of the Bible for easier understanding. It also gives access to thousands of Bible Study guides that are easy to read and understand. There are bible Study guides for your every mood and situations. It also gives you access to millions of other users with whom you can share your thoughts, questions and prayers. It’s a great app.
- Also listen to teachings by Ravi Zacharias.
Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive.
I was lonely and sad, dejected, and depressed.
I felt worthless and unaccepted until his love found me.
There was one time when I messed up real bad and I felt like I was beyond redemption. I didn’t know what to do so I just lived my days like a ghost, sorrowing and drowning in my thoughts.
One day I heard a voice telling me “My grace is sufficient for you.”
I couldn’t believe it but I couldn’t deny it either. It was clear and it was from God.
This is one of my experiences pursuing God.
How Did You Prove You Met The Requirements for this Level?
I believe my answers above are proof of my interest in this dive, and proof of my having met the requirements. I chose to continue to pursue this dive.
Will you be pursuing the next level? If so, what is the next level, and what is your plan? If not, why not?
Yes. I will because I wish to grow in Christ and get to know God more. I want to grow in Him. I want to experience more of His love.
