But when I was 9 years old, an evangelist, who was preaching a revival meeting in our church, told me how I could have the emptiness in my life filled.
As a child, I had little understanding of who God was or even that He wanted a relationship with me.
I realized I was a sinner and I needed Jesus to come into my heart, cleanse me of my sin, and make me whole.
There were seven of us living in a one bedroom farmhouse in northwestern Oklahoma when I was a kid…
I knew about Jesus, His love, and His forgiveness but I did not have a personal relationship with Him.
I began to realize there were things in my life that were not pleasing to God, even though He loved me very much.
When I was 10 years old our church had a revival. I realized that I was a sinner and I needed Christ to forgive me of my sins.
At church once, the teacher was teaching about knowing Jesus. I realized I did not know Jesus. My sin, or wrong, was keeping me from knowing Jesus.
There was a time when my life lacked direction and purpose. Because of this, I had no real peace about where I was going in life.
