TESTIMONY – God and I’s story ♡
I grew up in a Christian home and carried the label of being a Christian, but I never truly had a relationship with God, and I was not living for Him. Before giving my life to Christ, I dealt with bullying growing up. Eventually it got worse in high school and that led to depression, suicidal thinking, and self-esteem issues. It caused me to stop caring about life and to push everyone away. I was desperately trying so hard to gain other people’s approval of me and seeking my worth from this broken world.
I was always so inspired when I saw my mom worshipping Jesus, praying, and reading God’s word, but I did not think I was capable to do that. Near the end of my junior year of high school, the Lord revealed Himself to me. It occurred to me, after all that God has done for me, why do I not have a relationship with Him. He helped me through bullying and the hardest seasons of my life. Most importantly, He sent His Son to die for me, just as He has done for you too. I knew I wanted a relationship with Jesus, so from April 2020, I gave myself to Christ and committed my life to Him.
God has changed my life in so many beautiful ways! All glory goes to God for what He has done in my life! Ever since following the Lord, He has sanctified and refined me. I let go of the things that were not leading me towards God, and I learned that following Him takes sacrifice. I am not perfect, but I do serve a perfect God. Since following God, I have experienced a pure true joy that I have never experienced before. I have experienced love none like another; God is amazing, and He is love. I do not regret giving my life to Him, even if following Him is not an easy journey. He never gave up on me, so I do not want to give up on Him. If you are reading this, God loves you so much, He loves you more than you could ever imagine! Just remember, if you have not surrendered your life to Him, His arms are wide open just for you! ♡ ♡
THE GOOD NEWS ♡
The truth is that we are all sinners in need of a Savior. Sin is our rebellion against God and it separates us from Him. God knew that we needed rescue. So, God so loved the world that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins so that we would not perish in this world but have eternal life with Him (God) in heaven (John 3:16 ♡) . Jesus died, was buried, and resurrected from the dead. We deserve death for our sins but Jesus paid the price. His resurrection has redeemed us from our sins! We no longer need to feel shame, guilt, or condemnation.
The gift God gave us is eternal life and reconciliation with Him and it takes true faith to receive this gift. Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” Believing in God is not just believing for believing but truly picking up your cross everyday. You turn away from your old sinful ways and turn towards Jesus. It is a lifestyle to live for Jesus and is an everyday walk of surrendering yourself to Him.
“Even when I go through the darkest valley, I fear no danger, for you are with me; your rod and your staff – they comfort me.”Psalms 23:4 ♡
