Before I gave my life to Jesus, I was a mess. I hated myself, trusted no one, felt totally rejected and unloved, and yet I somehow I still thought I was in control of my own destiny. The reality however, is that I had managed to run my life completely into the ditch.
I eventually realized that I had sunk terribly low. I was behaving in ways that I am not proud of. I truly did hate myself, and believed that there was nothing about me that could be loved.
In time though, something started happening in me - in my mind and in my soul. Certain lyrics in the music on the radio, a word spoken here or there, a conversation with someone who was a Christian. These things began to persuade me that there really was a God out there, lightly tapping me on the shoulder. It was just little bits and pieces, and it was subtle, but it was happening consistently and it did manage to get my attention. Slowly I began to entertain the possibility that the very God of the Universe might actually want to speak to me, a totally lost soul who had rebelled so badly and for so long.
So I finally prayed. “Lord, if You’re really there, and You want me to trust you, then I need You to help me. I’m alone, down to nothing, and no prospects. Without Your help I can’t do it anymore.”
God is so faithful! Within days, doors started opening. Through His amazing intervention, He had perfectly set me in a place where I could grow and learn, and He started the long process of healing my brokenness.
Shortly afterwards I found Faith Chapel in Billings, and they welcomed this wrecked me with open arms. Soon I dedicated my life to Jesus. It was there that I learned the truth about the grace we receive because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and His resurrection. All of my sins - past, present and future – were cancelled once and for all when I really put my trust in Jesus. And He will NEVER abandon or turn His back on me.
He continues to prove Himself to me time and again. I am finally at peace with myself. I know I am loved. He has faithfully taken care of me, protected me from calamities, and afforded me numerous, fulfilling opportunities to serve Him by helping others. All of this is because I now live in a true relationship with my Father and Lord.
