At 28 years old, I accepted Christ as my personal Savior. I was a single mother of two young children, working two jobs, searching for something, but I didn’t know what. The joy was overwhelming, but like many new Christian’s, this is where I stopped. I quickly fell back into wordly ways, yet the Lord kept placing convictions on my heart.
At 50, I rededicated my life to Christ. This time has been different. I still struggle with things, who doesn’t? But I’ve put forth an effort to learn more and try to have a better understanding and a better relationship.
What I have learned is that the Bible is not just a book. The Bible is a Love Letter from God. It’s a promise of eternal life. It’s much deeper than words on a page. I never really understood Christianity, but I’m learning that you will never have a more intimate relationship than you can have with Christ.
I am learning something new and something deeper every day. Words could never express the joy and the comfort that comes with following Christ. It’s a personal relationship. It’s not about going to church or what denomination you are. It’s about love and forgiveness and looking past the outside and into the heart.
I don’t have all the answers and I never will. But I can tell you this. We all have a choice. The more I learn, the more I know I made the right one. Jesus IS the way, the truth, and the life.
Check it out for yourself. Do some research. You’ll be glad you did.
