I love making new friends, it is so special to be able to get to know people and learn about their lives. Their lessons can be part of our learning too. I have heard some amazing stories over the last few years from women and men just like you and me, telling their story of how Gods love has helped them overcome the most overwhelming experiences, the direst of situations, death of loved ones, failing marriages, parenting pressures, estranged family relationships, chronic health issues, financial burdens to name a few. It is such a powerful thing to be able to share the testimony of what saying ‘yes’ to accepting Jesus into your life and living a Jesus centred life can do to positively transform one’s own circumstances from hopeless to hope-filled, stressful to stress-free, chaotic to calm, from scarcity to abundance and problematic to peaceful.
Sharing our testimony not only furthers His Kingdom in ways we might not see on this side of eternity. It helps us deepen our relationship with Jesus as we share how the promises of God have impacted us individually. So I wanted to share some of my story, particularly the moments that led me on this journey of saying “yes” to God. As you read the words and perhaps nod and think to yourself “that’s me or me too” my prayer is that you will join me on this magnificent journey called life and we can become friends.
‘I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters. I will praise you among your assembled people. ‘ Psalm 22:22 (NLT)
