Testimony of beginning.
« on: February 24, 2010, 10:11:02 AM »
This is how I turned to God.
I was struggling with life,
and could not find my way to peace.
He came to me with vision,
and a much better way.
And I knew.

And there You were.
I didn't call You.
I didn't know You.
But You came for me
and showed me who You are.

You showed me that evil will be obliterated;
It will be completely destroyed.
Your light surrounds it,
and will overtake it,
and it will be no more.

You showed me the darkness I live in,
how it seems like everything,
how it seems like the center of all that is,
and the reach of all that is,
and the limit of all that is.

But it's all lies.
You gave me perspective:
There is no center of Infinity,
You can't be measured in boundaries.
You are endless,
and death can not live.

That darkness over our small planet
is finite
and You are infinite.
You are everywhere, all directions,
and will consume the lie, close in on it, destroy it,
and darkness will be no more.

Come with Me! You said.
Make your escape.
I've shown you how and I'll show you how.
You will love and be grateful!

And You asked me to trust You.
Yes! I said.
I will trust You.
I will listen to You.
I will make my escape.

And You took me on an adventure.
Held in Your heart I saw my salvation.
I saw my life become death so my death can become Life,
and I'm given the gift of a choice:
die in my living,
or acknowledge my sin
and choose the Word of God
and claim the promise You give -
the gift of salvation.

And I watched myself on the mountain top:
Small, unnoticeable,
surrounded by You and all of Your creation,
talking to You, hearing You, Feeling You around and within
healing me.
And my life was transformed.
And my life is transformed.

You are the Light and Life of the world and forever.
And You came for me.
You came for me.


Faith is the living power that presses through every barrier, overrides all obstacles, and plants its banner in the heart of the enemy’s camp. 4T 163.3

A beautiful testimony, dear sister! God is so very Good!!! These heartfelt words will encourage others who are searching.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

Never ceases to amaze me - He that is everything came for me who is nothing.

Yes, we are seeing thing with more clarity!  The matchless charms of Jesus!
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
