I was a lost sinner, and I had no hope for the future or for eternity. I was lost in myself and my narrow minded ways…Trying hard to control my life as it was getting more and more out of control. I was not into drugs or crime, but I was guilty of thinking that if I tried harder, then I could make things happen for me and my family. Boy, was I wrong…No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t do it.
I grew up going to church on and off with my grandparents. I enjoyed the songs and bible stories. But, once I got older, I didn’t really believe in them. I thought of the stories and the bible as a story or books that were not real. I believed in the theory of evolution and what I was learning in science class. So, as I grew up, I had mixed feelings on religion and my beliefs. As an adult, I lived my life as if I was the one in control of it all.
Last spring, that all started to change. I began attending Grace on Easter Sunday. I took the summer bible study, started doing Sunday school lessons with a friend, and began reading the bible more often. Through it all, the Holy Spirit was working in me, softening my heart. God showed me that I was born a sinner, that I deserved to spend eternity in Hell, and that nothing I could do would change that. Only through the work that Christ did on the Cross would my sins be forgiven and by faith alone I would be saved. So, by God’s grace, I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior. I believed!
I am still a sinner, but I am so thankful that I can repent and get a chance to try again! I praise God for all He has done in my life. I thank Him for leading me to Greenville Grace, and for my new family here. I thank God that you allowed Him to work in your lives to bring me to where I am today!
