|MY TESTIMONY OF FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST|
I was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness from my mom. My dad really doesn’t have a belief. My grand parents were catholic. So I was raised with belief in God. When I was in high school I had a friend Darlene Brown who was Pentecostal. She invited me to church and to her youth activities where I heard the gospel many times. The Lord was working on my heart. The troubling question he would always put into my head was “If my parents punish me when I do something wrong why doesn’t God do that?” It bugged me for years. Then I started dating my husband. He would always say he couldn’t date me if I didn’t believe in God. Of course I believed there was a god he just didn’t go into detail about what I believed. My husband, at the time boyfriend was going to church with a friend of his Mike Early. I was also having problems at home, so I moved in with my boy friend. Well about a month after going to church with him. Mike Early and his Pastor Otis Nixdorf came to our little studio and gave me the gospel and I confessed that I was a sinner, (I was in the mist of many sins, dishonoring to my parents, living with a man I wasn’t married to, cussed like a sailor, had a horrible attitude towards every one. And everything.) I believe Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins, rose from the grave on the third day according to the scripture. The Joy I have to day is God is a forgiving God and he loved me so much that he died for me and chose me to be part of his family.
P.S. he chose you too if you will only believe
