I am a New Creature: Life Defining Posts

(Page Updated June 2021… this page is under construction)

Hi, I’m Aimee!

Seven years ago (as of 2021), I had nowhere to turn and lost all hope, but Jesus found me and said, “You are Mine. I want you forever. Be with me.”

This blog has seen various changes over the years with the biggest one being me. What started as a food blog named ‘TastyBite’, became a journey of my relationship with God. TastyBite no longer fit my new life, and a few weeks ago, I finally changed the name to a better reflection of who I am: Beloved Oath of God. The name comes from the name given by my mom, who prayed for me before I was born. I took care of her for years, and she died when I was 19.5 years old.  I explain that here: A story of one of the best-worst things to happen to me.

Unacknowledged grief had me fall into a deep depression. I lived with chronic anxiety, had panic attacks, and did not know my purpose. I was too ashamed to talk to anyone thinking it was too late and did not know how to finish the year when Jesus stepped in. My life changed forever after that initial encounter with Him in 2014, and I would never be that person again, nor forget that moment as long as I live. It was as if He reached in the pit and pulled me out. It was the most actual thing to ever happen to me, and I lived out my favorite verse, Psalm 34:4 “I SOUGHT THE LORD, AND HE HEARD ME, AND DELIVERED ME FROM ALL MY FEARS.”

Who were you before the world told you who you should be?

My purpose became apparent: ‘to believe in the One He sent’ (John 6:29).  I was the one lost sheep Jesus left the ninety-nine to rescue and made it my life’s mission to tell everyone about it. 

No matter what you have been through, nothing is ever wasted when you hand your life over to God.  He has a way of making beauty from all of our ashes.  It was in that deep pit He taught me how a strong root is formed in darkness.

Christian Introvert Struggle: I never felt like I fit in anywhere and then Jesus found me and told me I belonged.

That post is a good start, but things got more profound and personal, and my heart poured out in my blogs as time went on. This website became a journal of my walk with Him, Who is the Bread of life. He is the living water and the well that will never run dry. He is the lover of my soul Who promises never to leave or forsake me. He is the One who makes all things work together for my good.

To restore my bitter heart, He provided the opportunity to spend time with my buddy with Down’s Syndrome.  It was so life changing it deserves a spot on my main page.  I write about those experiences here:
“Jesus gave me a Brent” Faithful is He that calleth you that also will do it…

One extra chromosome changed my life…

Don’t look at the clouds

One of the greatest things I have witnessed so far is the miracle of a friend who was ‘barren’.  The Dr. told her she had less than one percent chance of having a baby, and my response was her child would be in my wedding.  I am still single, but in December of 2020 the miracle baby was born.

I am a single Christian in my 30s and am thankful to finally view singleness as a blessing rather than a curse.  For years I have prayed to be a wife, only to find out He was making me His bride.  What would you do if you got what you prayed for? It’s in the waiting you learn to trust.  He gives us the desires of our heart because HE is our desire.  I almost found the one my soul loves.

After years of being without a car, He miraculously provided one and then suddenly gave me a new job.

“WHEREIN YE GREATLY REJOICE, THOUGH NOW FOR A SEASON, IF NEED BE, YE ARE IN HEAVINESS THROUGH MANIFOLD TEMPTATIONS: THAT THE TRIAL OF YOUR FAITH, BEING MUCH MORE PRECIOUS THAN OF GOLD THAT PERISHETH, THOUGH IT BE TRIED WITH FIRE, MIGHT BE FOUND UNTO PRAISE AND HONOUR AND GLORY AT THE APPEARING OF JESUS CHRIST: WHOM HAVING NOT SEEN, YE LOVE; IN WHOM, THOUGH NOW YE SEE HIM NOT, YET BELIEVING, YE REJOICE WITH JOY UNSPEAKABLE AND FULL OF GLORY…” – 1 PETER 1:6-8

He showed me what the transformation of a new creature looks like through an answered prayer in my butterfly garden: I have a Butterfly garden: Just when the caterpillar thought its life was over…

“MY BRETHREN, COUNT IT ALL JOY WHEN YE FALL INTO DIVERS TEMPTATIONS; KNOWING THIS, THAT THE TRYING OF YOUR FAITH WORKETH PATIENCE.

BUT LET PATIENCE HAVE HER PERFECT WORK, THAT YE MAY BE PERFECT AND ENTIRE, WANTING NOTHING.

IF ANY OF YOU LACK WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, THAT GIVETH TO ALL MEN LIBERALLY, AND UPBRAIDETH NOT; AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN HIM.” – JAMES 1:2-5

There is no life outside of Christ and we have a choice: Where do you choose to go?
