How and why I developed a relationship with Jesus Christ
My way was dark and drear but the Lord touched me and said, "I'm right here." I often stumbled and fell on the well trod path to hell. Each time I would fall, my Lord would say: "Just give me a call". I didn't seem to hear, although He always whispered in my ear. My heart was filled with fear. I counted nothing as being dear. I wanted to do right, but I didn't know how -not quite.
I had family and friends and even a measure of good health, but what I wanted most was wealth. I would lust until I thought I would bust. The Lord was saying, "just learn to trust".
I thought you had aciehived success when you could say, "I have the best". I had always been patted on the head and told what a fine job I was doing. No one told me it was the devil I was wooing.
I would fuss and I would cuss but I still hadn't learned to trust. I would go to church on Sunday, dressed in my finest and on the very first row I would sit. I didn't realize I was nothing but a hypocrite. Little did I know that church wasn't just some place to go to see who you know.
Things around me began to crumble. I quickly learned to be humble. My health began to fail me. I found out my family structure was just a sand castle. Life became such a hassle.
The Lord began to unfold my life's plan when I started calling on Him instead of man.
I found a new church home. As I sat and listened I observed the saints; oh, how they glistened. The love they had to share was more than I could bare.
After 6 years of college I didn't have knowledge of the Word of God. I didn't understand what the word repent meant. I finally went down in Jesus' name and my life has never been the same. After 7 months of yearning, I gave it over to Jesus and He feeled my soul with such a burning. The Holy Ghost came in and I just knew this was the end.
I thought this was all I needed, but His voice I still had not heeded. This was just the beginning, although I had given up my life of sinning. I was so inspired. I didn't realize that in the fire I had to be tried. I eventually learned it was good for my soul so that I would come out as pure gold.
Christ pulled me off the cliff I was hanging on and let me know I was no longer alone.
This is how my salvation came to be. I never imagined I would be this free. I thank God for smiling down on me.

|Wow, what a great testimony my friend! Many learn that salvation a word that describes a deep personal relationship with God! Prayer is the key to maintaining this relationship, after allowing Him into my heart nearly twenty nine years ago...His grace, mercy, love, and companionship is still as wonderful today as it was then! A bold and touching write...keep the fire ever burning my friend!
Blessings from Ky.
