Since I was a little girl my dad has always taught me about God. I always thought I knew how God was even though I never followed the ways of the bible. I always thought that God was just our creator but I didn’t know that he’s more than that. A lot has happened in my life. I always just lived my life doing whatever I wanted. Parties and more parties drinking with no control living the life according to me. I came to a point when I was feeling alone. I felt empty and wasn’t happy with my life. I felt like I hadn’t really accomplished a lot. I was happy about my family as I have two children and they were everything to me and a very loving husband but everything else was falling apart. I had lost my job we lost our home and I was just feeling very sad and empty inside. I tried to fill that emptiness with more parties and drunkenness but it didn’t help. One day I was at church and I just broke down. I cried out to God and told him that I surrender my life to him. I told him I was sorry for how I had been living and that I was feeling sad and empty and didn’t want to feel that way anymore. A couple of days later I decided to really get to know how Jesus was. As at church the paster preached about how we think we know who God is but if we did our lives would be different and we would know it.
So I decided that I would read the bible and get to know him for myself. I started in the book of Matthew and by the 2nd page into the book of Matthew in the bible I was hooked. It was as if something came over we which it did. God had poured the Holy Spirit into me and now the words I was reading became a live. I spoke to me and showed me the true meaning of life. He filled me with his love a love I had never felt that emptiness I once felt inside of me was gone. It’s the most amazing feeling ever. So many amazing things happen to me now because of him. He’s blessed me with talents I never knew I had. I love my job I am a new person. I feel like my old life got nailed to the cross with him and he brought me back to life as a new person. I have so much love to share now and I’m so happy. Even when things aren’t perfect I’m happy and at peace because I know that God will get me through it because “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength,” Philippians 3:14
I am now truly living my life to the fullest and you can to. I promise if you believe and open your heart and surrender your life to him he will give you the best life ever possible.
We were all created to worship and love him. I pray that whoever reads my testimony will open there hearts to know this is the truth and you can find out yourself if you ask him to lead you and show you the way. My biggest desire is that everyone will come to know the love of God for themselves.
