If I could share my Christian testimony in just 5 short minutes, this would be it!
I didn’t grow up in a church. I also didn’t grow up in an anti-God home. It was more like, there is a God of the Universe out there, so you should probably be good… But that was pretty much it for me.
In college, someone gave me a Bible for the first time, which quickly made its way into storage for the next several years. Then one day, someone invited me to church, and I went because we lived in a tiny little town and it seemed like the best way for me as a young mom in a new town to meet people.
I found Christ “by accident” on a fall day in 2009 when an eager visiting Preacher at that tiny little Southern Baptist Church randomly asked me if I had ever been saved and if I wanted to be baptized the next weekend! Feeling very pressured to “make the right choice” and scared half to death about what would happen to me, I reluctantly agreed. I didn’t have the slightest clue what it meant to be saved, let alone to be Baptized. Regardless, the very next Sunday there I stood with an entire congregation watching me agree to make Jesus the Lord of my life. Right there, in that moment, I knew that even though I didn’t really understand what I was saying yes to, I absolutely would spend the rest of my life finding out.
That was the best decision I ever made
Since that day I have renewed my commitment to Christ so many times I can’t keep track! I have been richly blessed, in too many ways to count. I live each and every day in the complete freedom that I have been given in Christ. I walk in perfect peace knowing that my eternity is sealed and that nothing can ever again separate me from the love of God. He shines His beautiful face on me every single day, showering me with favor and blessings that I am completely undeserving of. He continually gives me grace, whether I am in the best of my best or the worst of my worst. His love has changed me forever.
If there was anything I could ever do to repay Him for loving me so unconditionally, it is right here, in the pages you are reading.
He can and will change your life too, if you are willing.
God is good all the time!
