As my faith has increased, everyone knows I was looking for something to hang onto. I knew there was something out there, but I was not sure what was out there. Slowly I grew to know I could believe again. I guess I have done it all at once, immersed myself in the word of God. The truth has been set before me in many ways, by many biblical quotes, by the word of prayer, shown me by many people.
I have told God many times what puzzles me over the past couple of years, I actually begged God to find me a decent place to live at one stage. I was virtually living in a shanty, come real old cottage at one stage. God led me to a peaceful unit in the country. God and Jesus solved my problem with prayer. The Lord is teaching me many facts about life in the bible.
At first I did not know where I was going when I first started learning about the bible, now as I hear verses each day or look up versus about different parts of life in the bible I am amazed. You hear things so many times a day you actually believe them, now as I hear the word of God I believe.
I have considered the testimony of many others I have met since turning my life around. Special friends that have helped me guide my walk with God, no-one has pushed me, I took it on myself. I believed there was a place of peace somewhere, I did not know how to find it, but I did; I believe one day I would find a place of peace.
There has been others just like me that have been saved, many from not so different walks of life, some from far different walks. Living a life of despair, searching through God’s Gospel, I began searching further, deeper, now I am traveling the same road as many before me. The experience of others helping me along the road of faith has led me to hope, peace, faith, OH! so much more.
I could’ve reject the road I took, but the road I have taken has led me to a better road in life. God has delivered me to believe in Jesus Christ. Delivering me from my fears so that I can work closely with others; helping them regain their lives.
Turning my eyes towards faith, I realise Jesus died for me so that I could be saved from sin and in turn now I trust Jesus with my life. I am still trying to understand and learn the Apostles but I am learning more and more each day as I write. Sometimes I can understand the Old Testament at times I think that part of the book is beyond me but I will get there.
