Happy Easter to all my followers.
I pray that your spirit would be renewed as you celebrate the resurrection of Our Lord.
sweetlittlemissblue asked: Did you always believe in God? If not, when did you start and why? :)
What a good question, one I have been looking to make a post about so here it goes. I never really was a believer until late into highschool. I grew up in a house that went to church on Easter and Christmas. So as you can imagine nothing ever stuck. And by my freshman year of highschool I was experimenting with drugs and alcohol. That summer I got the job of my dreams. Long story short, I was caught smoking pot and got fired but that didn’t deter me. The rest of the summer I was frequenting parties and smoking and drinking everything away. My mom started to catch on and decided I had to go to church and spend time with the youth group. I tried to take it seriously but ended up just staying (mostly) sober on Sundays. Come January during sophomore year I had been invited to attend a Chrysalis weekend by my youthleader. I would like to say that is where it ended and I was saved on that weekend and happily ever after. Unfortunately that’s not how it works. I accepted Christ that weekend but I wasn’t saved yet. That came a few weeks after. I was drunk and stoned leaning over on my friends balcony smoking a cigarette. When the cross from my chrysalis weekend flew out from under my under shirt, then my shirt, then my sweater and finally out from under my jacket. When I say it was pinned to my chest with clothing it was. That was no happenstance I leaned over in just the right way at that moment for that cross to sway into view. And when it did all heaven broke loose, I fell to my knees and prayed. No one seemed to notice my absence from inside. I was secluded on my friends balcony. Instead of bass thumping from inside I started to hear praise songs in my head. I was overwhelmed by Holy Spirit. From then on I truly gave myself to Christ and was saved. I had slip ups sure. I stumble still. But I know Christ has my back and always will. I would love to say after I accepted Christ it got easier but that’s not how it works either. Everyday I die to my old self and rise again with Christ. That’s what we have to do. Addiction, lust, greed and all the sin doesn’t just vanish we have to deal with it. We have to over come it.
If you do what is right will you not be rewarded? But if you do not do what is right, watch out! Sin is crouching at your door, it desires to have you. But you must over come it and become it’s master.
So that is my condensed testimony. Sorry for the sporadic writing. I was drinking my morning coffee before work writing this.
