Hey, my name is Aisha, born and raised in London and welcome to ‘the wailing wall’, this is a Christian blog and its main purpose is to encourage, share and for us as the body of Christ to have a deeper insight of the Word of God. As Christians, no matter how long we have been on this journey or how spiritual we would consider ourselves we all still go through different experiences in life that can challenge our faith at times. However, understanding the authority that God has given us and by maintaining our cross for His sake, we will be able to find strength in Him.
Why did I decide to make a blog?
Writing, from a young age has always been a passion of mine but I never took it seriously or thought of its use for Kingdom purposes. For a while now, I’ve been praying for God to use me in different ways and starting a blog was one of the things that the Holy Spirit laid upon my heart. Due to my initial fears and doubts, it took me a while to actually start but thankfully for those around me that encouraged me as well as reassurance from the Lord, it is here.
Why is it called ‘The Wailing Wall?’
‘The wailing wall’ in Jerusalem, originally known as ‘Ha Kotel’ in Hebrew, was originally the second temple in 70CE that was destroyed by the Romans but the protective wall around the temple was not destroyed. For the Jews it stands as a reminder as well as giving them hope for their future. This is a place of lamentation and it is also a place where people gather to pray and worship together daily.
The thing that I admire about the Jews’ relationship with God in the bible is that they stood and continue to stand on every single covenant that the Lord has promised them. Regardless of their failings and struggles they always looked to their source (Yahweh). For us as Christians, who are now under a better covenant (Hebrews 8:6) we should also be able to connect our issues to our solution who is Jesus Christ no matter how big or small they may seem. We can deceive ourselves as much as we want and pretend like this walk is easy when it is not always going to be rosy and the Lord knows that Himself (Romans 5:3-5, 1 Corinthians 10:13). Knowing that we have a Father who cares and actually desires for us to pour out our burdens unto Him is amazing (1 Peter 5:7).
Overall, I’ll be speaking about some of the struggles that I have faced, things I have learnt and that I’m still learning in my walk with Jesus and on ways that the Holy Spirit has taught me to deal with them. I will be as transparent as possible with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. As well as, the sharing of testimonies, upcoming events and lastly, if anyone has any prayer requests (everything is confidential) and if there are any topic requests please feel free to leave a message.
God bless you all for taking the time to read this and I pray that this blog blesses you in one way or another.
Let us get our hearts right with the Lord, the correct way. it’s a blessing to be able to share this blog with you.
