My Testimony

I empathize with you… religion is what turns many away from true belief in God…. however he is real… and hopefully one day.. when the time is right… you will come to have a personal relationship with him….
I like you.. tried to be “saved”, when I was a teen, we went to a church where they believed in praying thru… until you knew you had touched God… and felt him in your spirit… I saw how others did it.. and I truly tried.. but.. nothing….
so, time went on… and I drifted away from the church… it is just a formality if we are not in touch with the spirit… and it can’t hold us for long… unless we are really determined…
I went my own way.. and committed a lot of sins…. of which I wish I could erase.. but.. unfortunatley you can’t.. you can be forgiven.. but.. you can never take away what you have done.. it will always remain in your conscience…. so, for your own good.. if you don’t want to regret it later.. do what is right… so that it won’t plague you later on….
We all have a God spot.. I believe… that is inside of us.. that nothing nor no one can fill, but.. God… we try as we go along.. with all kinds of things.. work, drugs, sex, rock and roll… you name it… but.. we come up empty…. and I truly believe that God designed us that way.. to bring us back to him….
finally… i cried out to God… one night.. asking him if there was nothing in this life for me… I had experienced everything that life had to offer, within reason… and it did not satisfy… I had a new home, new furniture, a good business, a new car, a wonderful husband, but.. I came up short… unfulfilled….
empty… and did not know why… so.. in desperation… I called out to God… in a very simple little prayer.. that really wasn’t even a prayer…
I just said, God is there nothing else in this life for me?
and he answered… big time…. he had brought me to the end of myself… so that when he called.. I could and would…. answer… and I did… and that was in June of 1985… and he changed me overnight.. he gave me a desire to read his word… and I stayed in it constantly.. .for 3-4 years.. devouring it.. receiving answers that I so desperately needed….and being filled and saturated… with his spirit….
and as I learned.. he placed me in situations… where I could use what I had learned… and it has been a very exciting journey.. indeed… one that I would reccomend to anyone…
but the key is that God is real… and he is spirit… and without his spirit.. life is very dull.. and unimportant, and boring… but.. with his spirit… wowo…
what a difference..
so.. don’t settle for religion.. find God….he is so worth it…..
Blessings…
