Hello everyone!! I'm new to the forums, I'm excited to be here and progress in my walk with Christ with each and everyone of you!! Apr 20, 2014
- Network Security Analyst
- Young christian male! I've surrendered my life to the Lord, and am currently working on my Christian faith and walk with Christ by learning the word taught in the Bible and practicing it's teachings. I currently work for a cyber security firm, primarily working with Linux, and some networking as well.
I have a passion for computers and learning about all the intricate details about them especially how they communicate. I also love the particular concentrations of Network Security and Administration.
I was raised in the church my entire life, as I got older and left for college I became distracted and drifted away from Christ and the church; although I remained a believer, I was not regularly attending service for a few years and my Christian Stewardship suffered as a result. I fell on difficult times emotionally; I felt lost, I was uncertain about my future career path, lonely, and struggled to find happiness in life. During my darkest hours I continuously felt a calling from God telling me to surrender my life to him, to put him first in all that I do, and that he would see me through and guide me along the righteous path that my heart had always desired.
One night I was lying in bed dwelling on my current circumstance again God spoke to my heart calling me to him, only this time it was like a little voice in my head went off telling me exactly what I needed to hear. I remember like it was yesterday...God spoke to my heart that night and said:
"Son, I will be your strength in the difficult times, I will deliver you from evil, I will redeem you from your sins, I am your victory, I am your wisdom, I am your strength, I am your deliverer, I am your redeemer...Through me ALL things are possible, No weapon formed against you shall prosper, delight yourself in me, trust in me and I will fight your enemies for you, I will guide you along the path of righteousness, I will bless you in abundance, I will protect you from evil, I will BE YOUR VICTORY ."
As soon as I heard and received this message from God I was brought to tears and felt the spirit of Christ lift me up. I knew from that moment on that I would never be the same, and a peaceful, calm, and warm spirit filled my heart, I prayed and I knew then that my Heavenly Father Would see me through. As time progressed that void in my life was filled by the greatness of my Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. I have received God into my life and wake up with joy knowing that he has my back. I feel like a new person, my faith has given me peace and comfort during difficult times, knowing that every storm shall pass and God will NEVER abandon me.
David said in "He lifted me out of the messy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand, He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God."
Just as he did for David, God did for me! He lifted me out of the "messy pit" and filled my spirit with a new 'song' of hope and joy that overtook my heart. I have learned to put God first in all that I do, and I have a conviction in my heart knowing that he will provide me with all that I need and will see me through to my divine destiny. My number one priority is to obey God's will, and fulfill the plan he has in store for me! God Bless and know that nothing you are going through is too much for God to handle. Put your faith in God and HE WILL DELIVER YOU!
I hope to expand on my competency with the Linux OS, with the hopes of one day becoming a Network Engineer, or Linux Systems Administrator. I have a passion for information technology, particularly with networking, linux, scripting, and information security. I also hope to publish academic articles teaching what I know, and perhaps one day teach a class or two! I also plan on obtaining various IT certifications that will help me along my career path to achieve my goals.
I have an older sister and together we were raised by my mother and father. We are all Christians who love Christ and seek God for strength, guidance, wisdom, and deliverance. My father is a Mechanical Engineer by degree and will soon be retiring. My mother is a retired Marketing professional, and my sister is finishing up with her Masters degree and will be pursuing her PhD after that.
I love playing basketball and working out; my favorite sports are basketball and soccer. I have plans to go back to school and receive my MBA shortly after landing my first job. My testimony is provided if you are interested in hearing it!
God bless you all and I'm looking forward to seeing what God has for me in these forums.
