I think that I have known since I was a child that I needed Christ to take away sin. As an adult, the Lord’s love and forgiveness has become much more important to me.
Before Christ I felt alone and burdened, helpless and afraid of the future. Now I have a best friend in Christ and I have faith that no matter what lies ahead in my life, He is right there with me supporting and loving me.
I wasn’t brought up in a Christian home, but always took opportunities to attend church with friend and neighbors. I think I was 8 or 9 when I was at a church service and felt the Lord come into my heart.
No one helped me at that time, but He was always in my heart and I always prayed to Him. Up until a few years ago, I didn’t attend church or study the Bible regularly. TWBS taught me the importance of living and learning the Bible each day.
I have a much closer relationship with the Lord now that Jesus is in it. My life has more joy in it and I have learned to pray more, to give of my spiritual gifts and to let Him ease my burdens.
Jesus loves me, He died for my sins and He is the one who give me strength to endure.
