Today’s post is part of my testimony about how God saved and rescued me. Since a young age, I wanted to know more about God and the Bible. I wanted to go to church. My parents took my brother and I to Sunday school and I loved it. My Grandmother was a God fearing woman and a great example to me. I’m thankful for this foundation.
I was born into a Christian home, but that didn’t make me a Christian.
As a teenager and young adult I searched other religions with a hunger to know truth but I seemed to always come back to my foundation of Christianity. I believe I accepted Christ as a child but do not remember an exact date. As a teenager, I went forward during the altar call at a youth event. I didn’t know what to do after that so, of course, I went down some wrong roads. As I look back though, I believe God had His hand on me and protected me from my stupidity, more than once.
After we married, I wanted to get right with God so I started attending a Presbyterian church. I began learning so many cool things about God and tried sharing with my husband, but he was not interested. It bothered me that he would not go to church. He grew up as a Presbyterian, so I thought if I attend a Presbyterian church, he would go. That didn’t happen for many years. I went every week and served in several areas, meeting new people and making new friends. Several years later John had an encounter with God and after that he started going to church with me. Never give up praying! And don’t nag like I did. It doesn’t work, just as the Bible says it won’t.
I thought my purpose on this earth was in my job, being married or in being a mother. After not being able to have children and having job issues, I just thought life was not worth living. I finally learned my purpose has always been for Him. Living my life for Him, serving Him and sharing Him.
God is so real to me. He is faithful and loving and I would be so lost without Him.
The peace that comes from knowing Jesus Christ gets me through the tough times. There is an inner peace and joy inside, even when the world around me is crumbing and so much is uncertain.
My faith is not in the economy or what the president does or any of the news. Having the peace that passes understanding is worth knowing and having faith in Jesus Christ.
Many situations in my life God has been there walking with me through each one and I know that without a doubt: Infertility, cancer, and marriage separation, to name a few. I’ve always believed in Jesus but I didn’t always follow and serve Him. After all the infertility crap, I stopped going to church for years and wanted nothing to do with God. Thankfully, He rescued me and never stopped loving me.
There is so much about God I do not understand but if I did then He would not be God. I do not understand a lot of the Bible but I know enough about Heaven and Hell to know they are very real places. I’m a sinner and I accept by faith that Jesus died for my sins and I’m thankful for the choice to spend eternity with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
So, YES, it is worth everything to be a Christian.
Got Questions is a great resource for finding answers about The Bible, Jesus, church and much more.
My prayer is for all to know this Peace, this Joy, and my Jesus. Will you accept Jesus in your heart today?
Let’s pray. Dear Jesus, I believe that you came as a man to earth and died on the cross for my sins. I ask you to forgive my every sin and help me to live for you. I want your peace, joy and hope. In Jesus name, Amen
