I have been a born again Christian since 1995. The story of my life and how I came to know God is as different, but as common as so many others who finally came to the knowledge of truth. And i am so thankful for HIS love, HIS mercy and HIS desire to know and save me. I will see if I can tell you the story of my home coming to the Lord in as a brief a tale as possible. I was going through it during that time in my life I can never forget, earlier that day I was speaking to my mother on the phone, and as always, she was telling me to turn to Jesus, that He loves me and has a plan for my life and could help me through all I was going through. She kept telling me to turn around, cant you see Him?. I have to admit I was a sarcastic something back then, so my comments were never pleasant. ESPECIALLY about a God I only half believed existed, and completely believed He didn't know or care about me if He did. Well, more or less to shut the moms up about this God stuff, I promised her I would read the Bible that night.. well later that night I am ALONE reading a novel (not the bible) and all that kept going through my mind was didnt you make a promise? Well those words in my head wouldnt stop, so I figured a SINGLE chapter, a COUPLE VERSES would fulfill that promise and I could get on with my life (whatever that was at the time). Well 7 CHAPTERS later (in the book of Matthew) I was crying beyond anything I have ever did before.. Well I jumped off the bed, threw that little brown new testament against that wall, spread out my arms (so my body was shaped like a cross, i realized that fact much later) and YELLED FINE, if youre real, and you love and want me so bad, then finish what you started!! and let me tell you.. DONT EVER challenge God like that, because HE DID Something physically hit me so hard on the top of my head, i was dazed. imagine a high pressured shower and the water running down your body. Got that imagined? now imagine that feeling on the INSIDE, but 100 times more powerful. The second hit knocked me to the floor. I could feel so much draining and filling me both at the same time. bitterness, hatred, anger, fear, violent tendencies, ALL draining from my body and life, while at the same time, love, joy, peace, gentleness, control, a desire for God were all filling me. When I finally got up off that floor, God had me, I was a changed person. I couldn't get enough of God. my life and days were filled with prayer and reading of His word. I wanted to KNOW HIM every and anyway possible. I wanted to share of HIS LOVE and desire for us to be part of His family. I served Him for years, then fell away. But I am back now and my life is His and I will continue to grow in Him and allow Him to lead my life. He has a plan for me He has a plan for ALL of us..find it, live it, share it
All We NeedHow might you trust God for the bounty He alone can provide?
