How did I meet Jesus? My mother introduced me to Him when I was 8 years old. I gave my heart to Him and loved Him with all m heart. I read His word, memorized scripture and attended church.
By the age of 15, I felt myself pulling away from the Lord. I became disillusioned by some of the hard knocks of life. I eventually walked away.
At the age of 30, I was tired of doing my own thing. I was married and had two children. I was selfish, angry, bitter and disappointed with my life. I made everyone around me miserable.
December 1, 1999 was a day that changed my life. I was involved in a car accident that totaled our family car. This was a wake up call for me. I knew God was trying to get my attention. It was time to come back to Him. In my living room that day, I surrendered my life to Christ. I admitted my sins, asked for forgiveness and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior.
As I’ve grown in my relationship with Jesus I now live a life of peace, love and joy even in the midst of the chaos of this world. Before I as fearful and ashamed but now I have freedom because God loves me and He has plans for me.
