My Testimony of Salvation through Jesus Christ.

The most memerable event that has taken place in my life happened on May 7th 1992. I struggled with my salvation for so long. Raised in a christian home, I rebelled. Once we began attending church, I really saw for the first time in my life, ladies that genuinely had a real walk with the Lord. 'Oh, how i long to have what they had.' The Lord began to deal with my heart about my own personal relationship with him......that I didnt even have one. What a Joy......The Day the Lord showed me I was lost and he so quickly came to my rescue and saved my soul. May 7th 1992, Praise the Lord God gave me peace. Oh satan can immitate alot of things, but one thing he cannot immitate is Peace. I cleaned up the outside......Had it looking pretty good. But deep down in my heart something was not right. I would pray OH Lord if I am not saved, save me......and then I would ask everyone....Do you ever doubt your salvation? I was looking for one person to tell me I was ok.....Thank God. No one ever did. The lady that lead me to the Lord, I had asked her if she ever doubted her salvation and she said you know what! I used to but let me show you what verse the Lord helped me with. Romans 10 Verse 3 For they being ignorant of Gods righteousness going about to establish their own righteousness, having never submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. I knew for the first time in my life....I was lost and I did not even know what Gods righteousness was and that I was ignorant of him. I knelt down at the altar and asked God to save me.....Oh the peace that flooded my soul. Oh the devil has come and tried to cast doubt but immediately, My soul cries out ABBA Father. I deal with children alot and I always tell them if they doubt whether they are saved or not. I say, you know If i came and moved into your house today, would you know that i was there? Well of course, WHY? because i am there. Same way with Jesus,,,,,,When he moves in, there is no doubt he is there, He makes his presence known. My sheep hear my voice and they follow me. God has been so good to me. My biggest burden is that church members make sure they are saved. I believe we have alot of lost church members sitting in the pews. I was one of them. Matter of fact, when i went home and told my Husband I got saved, he said WHAT? but not long afterwards he came to know the Lord himself.....another lost church member. If you are 99% sure you are save you are 100% lost. Have a great day. Bless the Lord, O my soul. )t2

When you know, you know. You feel it, you live it, you enjoy every single minute of it and you're not afraid what life will bring because you know that the Lord is there to protect you and take care of you and one day except you into his house. It is the most amazing feeling every single day to know that no matter what happens, no matter how bad the day is or even no matter how good the day is, that he is there too make sure you are safe and taken care of. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul.
It was a pleasure to read your post today. Thank you for sharing. God bless you and your family. Take care.
