Every day is a brand new day to show others the love of Jesus. It’s not about me or my story. It’s about making sure that the whole world knows about the brilliant, beautiful, amazing love that our Lord has to offer. If I can get one person to know that they are special, important, loved, beautiful, and favored, then my life will be so full!
I was neck deep in sin and selling drugs when one day I was pulled over by state troopers. They searched the car and although I was prepared to do the federal time it could have cost me I prayed, and prayed, and prayed some more that if God got me out of that situation I would stop selling drugs. I was so deep in it I didn’t know how it would be possible but just like the children of Egypt He pulled me out with a mighty hand. They found all the drugs and still let me and my best friend go. Not even a week later I came to Memphis, TN to visit my dad and never sold drugs again. I go back home to this day and pray and minister in the same streets and neighborhood that I once helped destroy and spread the good news. Not only is it good that I can still walk freely in any neighborhood and around any group of people but they can also see the change in my life. I am told often how proud I’ve made people for changing my life, and how they are grateful that I made it out alive. So what has Jesus done for me? He gave me a new life, encouraged me to live holy and to get baptized, and now I too can see the Kingdom of God on earth and in heaven!
I am here to say i am so blessed.
Jesus walks with me thru the days of struggle, sadness and happy days too. I am so grateful for the chance to share my faith with all who talk to me too!! Life is good with God.
My life and testimony…No room here to tell you how i know there is really a God. I just know. I have conquered the battles of cancer, heart, divorce, loss of life, coma.
I prayed for a peace of mind to handle every hurdle dealt me. The power of prayer, it works. I am proof of this. I have to share favorite lines i always pray=
In the worshipful words of Angels Ashwin, “Lord, through weariness and hurt, through headaches and depression, I am still Yours. I do not understand, but I believe that You are here in the darkest places…and that nothing can take us out of Your hands.”
Hello friends, my life was full of rage an hate from abuse from my parents for 14 years. I carry my scars all over, but God called me a couple of months ago when I tried killing myself. I felt His presence all around me. The anger has turned to forgiveness and excepting my past as a lesson in saving others through Christ Jesus. I would not be here if he hadn’t reached out an took me in. My road was dark an lonely, but now I will serve him and show others no matter what past you carry, God will bring you through it. Life is so much happier now. I would not be here if I hadn’t heard God call me in my heart and stop me from taking my own life. I have let the anger and rage go, seeing what God can do has made me love Him so much more, and saving me when there was no one to love me..thank you for allowing me to express my heart to you. THANK YOU LORD FOR RESCUING ME…Amen
I was never one to follow Jesus. Until the day came when He was all i could turn to so i opened my heart and let him in, giving faith he’d hear my prayers and be my strength. You see, i have a brain tumor on the left side of my brain, and though it is benign, i was told with this type of tumor, that if i ever carried another child, my chance for survival was slim. However i found out in November i was pregnant. I was terrified for my life as well as the life of this new little one inside me. I knew i wanted it. This miracle gifted to me even though we were safe, it was as though it was meant to be. So i declined abortion from my doctor’s suggestion. I took my fears and i turned them to god. I prayed. And, i prayed. I am now 30 weeks with a healthy baby and i have survived thus far even though most of my pregnancy has been a rough one. I continue to pray for a healthy delivery as well because i know the risk for my life, but i also know with God in my heart and hearing my prayers, he will have us in his hands. Things happen in life that we may not understand, but that’s no reason to shut out the world. There’s a reason for the good, and the bad. You just have to keep faith, and leave it to god to lead you where you need to be and trust in him. As i now have. I’d be proud to wear this shirt if given the opportunity to show my story has only just began with a miracle, because of faith, and because of God.
My name is Nick and I was born and raised an atheist. For most of my life I have laughed at the thought of a big man in the sky who created all things and knows each person on a personal level; to be completely honest, he seemed a little like Santa Clause-that is to say, a story told to children to teach them to behave. I lived this way up until my Junior year of high school when I was sixteen. As young adults do, my goal was just to blend in, so that day when a local catholic priest came in to talk to my social studies class, I acted as though what he had to say was stupid and laughed along with my classmates. I wouldn’t have admitted it at the time, but it changed my life. I found myself looking to find out more about Christianity and faith in general. As the year progressed, I became more invested in the word of the lord until it began consuming my life and my parents started asking why my grades were dropping. I couldn’t tell them my new passion for God because they would just laugh and mock so I promised to work harder and life went on. A few weeks later, however, I was tuning into a stream of a service on thesundaymass.org (because I could not attend in person) when my mom walked in. She was horrified that her child was “becoming an idiot” and she made me promise to give up this “religion crap” or there would be serious consequences. At this point I felt lost. I had nobody I could turn to because no one would understand, so I prayed. I would pretend to do homework and just pray for hours in my room. I prayed for a light that could show me how to continue to pursue faith and God answered. Within a week of my feeling lost, that same priest who had come to my school at the beginning of the year was just sitting outside my school as my bus arrived, as if he was waiting for me. As I went to talk with him I felt the grace of God in me and I was fearless. He told me I had to be honest with my parents, but that nothing was more important than God. That night he came to my house around 6:00 pm and helped me lead a discussion with my parents and by the end, they were convinced! They were not converted by any means but they agreed to let me continue my worship and even allowed me to go to local Sunday services! Since then my life has been changed. I now attend school in Wisconsin and I am a proud Catholic.
Before I came to Christ I always felt like something was missing in my life. As a result, I would try to fill that void with material items and what I thought was love at the time, but I found that I was still unhappy. My relationship was abusive both physically and emotionally and I began to become depressed. One day I found an old bible lying around the house and began to read and pray, everything changed. I got the courage to leave the relationship and return home. I discovered that Jesus’ love was more than enough and that I was truly undeserving to have such a chance at eternity.
