The man who had been trying to run away from God finally comes to his senses and realizes just how lost he really is; he then makes a life-changing decision that will affect his life in a profound way.

Image (c) 2011, by Karla Dorman.

Well, I done did it ...

I went down front to the altar at church on Wednesday and asked Christ into my heart.

I figured that I had enough of running away from God; there was no way on His good, green earth that I was gonna win, so I decided to surrender myself to Him and give him my life.

I felt like the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders.  I felt a sense of peace and relief; I knew without a shadow of a doubt that He now lived inside of me (and would do so from this moment on).

My wife, who was right by my side as I repented and surrendered, was bawling.  I was bawling.  Even the pastor was bawling as he prayed over me.  

It was wonderful! :)

I am no longer the God-hater.  I am now a God-lover.  Therefore, there is no more of my story to tell unless God sees to it.  I now have peace and joy inside of my (formerly) hardened heart; I have hope and a future.  My name is now written in the "Lamb's Book of Life"; I will be going to Heaven to be with God, Jesus, and all the rest of the Bible people forever and ever!  My life will be much better than I will ever imagine it will be.

Suddenly, I feel that I owe people an apology, the people I hurt or was nasty to.  I know this much: I owed God the biggest apology in the world.  I already made up with God (bawled like a baby the whole time).  Now it is time to make amends with the people I hurt with my nasty nature (including my wife; she probably got it the worst from me).

Oh, and remember that job interview at the car parts place?  I GOT the job!!  I started last week, and I LOVE it!!  It feels so good to be a productive part of society and to be making my own money (I get my first paycheck this Friday)!  God is blessing me already, even though I have only been a "Christian" since this past Wednesday (four days)!  

And get this: I am going to church again this morning!  I suddenly feel I have to go!  Who would have ever thought it was possible???

God is good, and I am so glad that I answered when Jesus came knocking at my heart!  I feel at peace, and suddenly, life is much brighter for me!!

To be continued (?).

Bravo, dear Karen. A touching write...and oh, so real! When we come to know Jesus and give our hearts to Him, it's amazing how the world around us suddenly seems different. By golly, I wish many would read this life-changing story of yours, for it echos the life-changing experience of many "doubters". A powerful series, Karen. I've only read a couple, but my writer instincts tell me you've been inspired to write this one. :) Well done! Jesus is exactly who He says He is; His promises He always keeps!

Be Blessed!
Love and Hugs

Dear Karen Lynn, The one who wrote the story can never get far away from God as He is always with us in every cell of our body. Be sure that God is always with you. The harder we have it here, the easier we will have it by Him. Love to you and you children Emile,
