My Story About His Glory

I started getting into some bad stuff when I was 9. I hung out with some people that got me in alot of trouble, well I wasn't caught. My mother always forced me to go to church, and I didn't want to go, so it made me resent it more. Then on 9/12/01, I went to youth group; it was the day after the 9/11 incident with the twin towers, and one person made a comment about that the people that died can see their family again someday, and the teacher said, "Not if they didn't accept Jesus into their lives". Then about a month later, I was forced to go to a Christian camp for Fall break. I was upset because I didn't want to go because I wouldn't know anyone there because I didn't talk to any of the people that went to the camp. On the last night of the camp, I don't remember the serman that was spoken, but I do remember that on that night, I accepted Christ into my life. I came back and as soon as I got back around my friends, I fell back into my old habits. Then the summer of 06', I rededicated my life to him, and got baptized. I am happy to say that now, I am a strong Christian, and love to do mission work. Everytime I go on a mission trip, it just seems like I grow more in chirst. Does anyone else feel the same way?

Alleluya praise the Lord! this is a great testimony for the glory of god! i'm glad that you were finally able to love the Lord after such a long time. Your story totally reminds me of
Isaiah 55:10-11
For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Amen, sister. Many blessing!

yes.."The more seek him, the more you know him."we grow in faith and love for Christ when we are committed to his work .
