Last Sunday (Easter), I gave my life to Jesus Christ.
For the past several years I have felt a void in my life that nothing seemed to fill. Maybe it is getting older. Maybe it is getting a little wiser. I felt like God was absent from my life and I wanted to fix that. Religion was never something I was comfortable with. The church experience was boring to me and I just never seemed to fit in.
This past Fall my family was invited to a local church and I really didn’t want to go. We ended up going and I was blown away by the experience – and the message. I am no biblical scholar, and where in other services I felt like the information was WAY over my head – the preacher talked to ME, at my level. Sunday after Sunday I went and the message got stronger and stronger – and made sense. The experience effected me – and I liked it.
Just a couple months ago a neighbor and I did something I never thought I would – joined a men’s bible study group. This strengthened the bond I started feeling for the church – as well as God.
This past Sunday it was offered to all those attending the experience to stand up, and come to the front of the church if you were willing to give your life to Jesus Christ. I knew it was coming – and I knew what I was going to do. I proudly bolted to the front to join many others who received a similar message and calling as I. We came down both young and old (several VERY old). It was an emotional experience. Best of all – my wife followed behind me. She knew I was going to do it – but she never hinted that she was considering it.
My journey has just begun……
Take care all –
