What's your testimony? I love listening to other people's journeys and how they came to be believers.

That's what provoked me to start this thread. I'm always interested in hearing about the way God worked in someone's heart to bring them to faith.

For me it came later in life. Was raised Catholic but got away from it all for a while. Always believed but never understood the meaning. To sum it up. Good friends, a small church and the Holy Spirit.

I was raised Presbyterian. I always believed in God but never knew anything about repenting on my sin and deciding to follow Jesus. I've been hung over many times in church with no conviction. Then one day in my early 20's I watched a preacher on the local tv station. He was presenting the Gospel in a way I had never heard it. I watched him several Thursday nights in a row and got up one Sunday morning and called the number i had written down. I drove about 15 miles to his church and saw people praising the Lord as if they really knew him and as if they were really thankful to him for giving them life. It was a shock to me. It took a couple months for me to decide i had been raised religious but did not have life, eternal life. I decided to follow Jesus and began to be convicted of sin. I would repent of my sins one by one and developed a real relationship with my Savior. I would read the Bible for hours every day. I started sharing my faith and the Gospel every time I had a chance. Now I can praise and worship Jesus because I know him and am truly thankful for giving me life!


Forgiveness is just a prayer away.

Holy Spirit convicted me of my sin. I realized if I died I’d go straight to (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman). I asked Jesus to save me from my sin, and accepted by faith His gift of salvation “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” Acts 16:31

When I realized I did not need to thank God but be thankful that put the spirit and the journey where it belonged. "Religion is for those that fear their is a H%$$. Spirituality is for those of us who have been there and made it back."

Can’t ever remember not believing. We had a Sunday school teacher in the teen group that always asked if someone wanted to give an opening prayer. I found myself standing without knowing what I was going to say. I recited the Lord’s Prayer and there was total silence from my classmates after. Something was happening, but what? I found myself “tuning” in on Sundays and sticking around for church services after Sunday school. One Sunday Us youth were performing and the song was short so one of the girls recited the 23 Psalm in between the 2 verses of the song. Midway through it she had “a moment” and began to weep. Standing right next to her, I could feel it. Can’t explain it, but I sure felt it. Those early years I wasn’t much of a Christian but leaned on Him plenty knowing He was there.

Hind sight is 20/20 and I have seen too much for coincidence. I have also asked knowing it would happen.

I'm not going to go into too much detail on here.

I grew up believing, then had a period that I did not believe.

Then I was at my lowest for quite some time. During that time I again started to believe, but only so that I could have something to focus my anger on.

One night I broke down... crying, praying, begging for forgiveness and making promises I knew I probably could not keep.

The next day the exact opposite of what I had prayed for happened.

After that, I had some time to spend thinking about it all and I started to wonder if what I prayed for was wrong, and what happened instead was right,

In the end, after a few hiccups, and in a round about way, the prayer I prayed that night WAS answered. It just took some discomfort before it happened.

Since then I've never doubted the existence of God or Jesus, but still am somewhat envious of the close relationship some of y'all seem to have with Him. I know He saved me in this world, and have faith He will in the next... but still don't feel a daily Presence much.

I was raised Lutheran by a German mother and Irish/English father. Went to Sunday school and afterwards church service since I was born and baptized. When I was a teen I started teaching Sunday school with a girl that would end up being my sister in law. When I went to college I slowly questioned my faith and grew away from the church and God. I got married and had a daughter. Me and my wife divorced when I was working two jobs and she found comfort in another man's arms. My daughter continued to be the love of my life and I went back to one job to spend more time with her. My daughter had juvenile diabetes since bith and always struggled keeping her sugar levels right. She was the first one in our area to get an insulin pump put in her. When she was twelve she was at her mother's and her sugar bottomed out and I was called to hospital. Spent two months in two different hospitals with her and never went home. She turned thirteen years old when she was in an induced coma. She died a week later. I went through #ell. I shook my first at God and swore Him off. It took many years for me to reconsile with my beliefs. One day I had an epiphany and realized it was God will. I still struggle sometimes I admit but without my faith I think I would have joined her by my own hand. I'm crying as I write this thinking about her. My mom and dad are both still alive and very old. My parents still put a remembering picture in the local paper on her birthday. My daughter brought me back to Christ

Turtledale,
Your last sentence is a sentence that lives in your heart, as a man and a brother in the faith who I do not know, but with which I also become emotional as I read your post also.
Broken hearts and love for others will do that to us, and for you and your daughters being so short, I'm so sorry.

God's Promise is true and so you and your daughter will have much to talk about when you both meet again on that indescribable New Day.
It is, and always has been, the Hope of the Gospel.
How it all happens is written in several texts to us by God, but perhaps the most concise is the Apostle Paul's letter to the believers in Corinth.
1 Corinthians 15:1-26 is our Gospel Hope.

Blessings,
Mark

I was saved at 10 but not obedient until my late 20's. Didn't come to the awareness I was a sinner in a church setting but at home alone with Christ. Didn't get baptized because I didn't understand its importance because I didn't read my bible.
Lost a friend to a boating accident and it got my attention. Had never read the bible, just bits and pieces, but was convicted to read it all the way through. That's when I discovered obedience and the wonderful relationship that comes with it.
Now I'm still not perfect in the eyes of man. A dirty soul. Heck instead of going to learn to be fishers of men this a.m. I'm heading to the river shortly to try to be a fisher of fish. Praise the Lord, by the blood of Christ, I'm made clean in the eyes of God.

I will, Rich. I've been thinking about it and want to whittle it down to a Reader's Digest version and avoid a novel. I appreciate all of you who have posted yours. There are some great stories out there, I hope more chime in.
