Christian testimony

Hi yall!

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!

    Hi Tiffany! My name is Tiffiney! (Ha!)

    I found your blog because I linked up at the 100 Happy Days link up last week and I was just following through with my commitment to follow the bloggers who host. So, as I was searching around your blog to see which social media platform I would follow you on, I came across this post on your testimony. What a blessing to read what you’ve written. our words really resonated with me. I can see you love the Lord.

    We have some things in common – other than our names! I’ve given my life to Christ a ton of times, too. I think it’s so creative that you titled this post: My 5 Minute Testimony. It made me want to read it. I’ve shared my testimony over on my site too. Hop over and read it whenever you have the time.

    God bless you, my dear sister. Good gettin’ to know you, even if it’s only through the blogsphere. :o)

    Love in Christ,
    Tiffiney

      Hi Tiffiney!
      I love your sweet comment and I’m so glad you found me over here! We had amazing pastors at our old church who always encouraged us to write down our “5 minute testimony” and practice it over and over, that way it became easy to share with others who may need to hear it. I always thought that was such a creative idea! So it was not my own, but thank you all the same! I will definitely come check out your blog when I have a few free minutes, I would love to read your testimony too!

      Blessings,
      Tiffany
