When I was 15 years old I realized I was a sinner and couldn’t please God by my life and on my standards. The Bible says in Romans 10: 8-9 that if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. I did just that. I prayed a simple prayer and gave my life totally to God. I gave him control of my plans, my future and my dreams…they really are His anyway and His way is always right. He never fails me.
Just because we become Christians doesn’t mean that life will be easy and nothing bad will ever happen. But now I have hope for the dark days and a friend that loves me no matter what. I am loved unconditionally and forgiven. Best yet, I know without a doubt I will go to heaven when I die. Jesus has been everything to me. He has been my guide when I didn’t know what to do. He has been my provider through difficult days. He is my healer, friend, comforter and guide. I trust God with every detail!
I don’t always do what is right, but with his grace and help I’m learning to walk God’s way. When I do mess up, He ALWAYS forgives when I ask and gives peace. He stood beside me when I suffered an aneurysm, when my husband walked out, as I love an alcoholic son, etc. God is my everything! He’s given me a new spouse, a new life and the chance to tell you that He can be trusted.
