to Play I Will Follow Him
I would like to
share with you my testimony of how that I came to trust Jesus as my personal
savior in hopes that it might help you in some way. I was a single parent
and on drugs. I already belonged to the Lord because I had obeyed his call
and was baptized at age 15. Because of lack of spiritual influence from
home or church I didn't stay close to God and made lots of bad choices.
At age 23, I was divorcing my first husband and afraid and alone, with
no means of support. I found a new identity. I became a hippie. Drugs became
my way of life. All of my friends were either users or dealers. I had found
something I was really good at. I could out smoke, out shoot, out pop,
out party the best. This kind of abuse is only fun for so long, and then
you become a burned out depressed, despairing individual with no life and
no hope for one.
is a God. And He never quit talking to me, no matter how bad it got, or
I got. He was using this time of desolation in my life to plant seeds would
bring me back to Him. At the age of 28, because of a hunger God gave me,
I surrendered my life to Him. I was instantly set free from drug addiction
and bad language. I began to attend a small non - denominational church
and within weeks was baptized again in water. This time with more understanding.
I was also baptized in the Holy Spirit, with the evidence of receiving
my own prayer language, (praying in tongues.) This experience enabled me
to feel the presence of God in a way I can't describe by human words.
God also revealed
Himself to me through the bible, the written Word of God. He showed me
that He is willing to open up the real meaning of scripture by revelation
knowledge by the Holy Spirit. He was no longer just words on paper. He
I am not saying
I became perfect. I am saying I became forgiven. I became like a new person
with a new heart and a new life. I was born again. Did I ever make wrong
choices again? Yes, I did. But, now with a difference. Now, when I failed,
I only had to turn to Jesus, confess my sin and He was right there to pick
me up and point me in the right direction.
I would like to
say "Thank you Lord, Praise Your Holy Name!"
