Talking (Christians) Testimonies on how you accepted Christ. post #1  quote:



I would love to hear your Testimonies and how Christ got in to your lives.


This is mine:

I Drank and alcoholism runs in my family. I am a Navy Veteran still in the reserves. In July of 2002. I was lower than low could be. I cursed in front of my children even used it toward my children. I used words that would make a sailor blush so to speak. I committed adultery and got involved with a relationship that my wife found out. (Praise God she has forgiven me)! I drank just to get drunk. I didn't drink daily though. I used God's name in vain like it was Going out of style. I met my pastor through ROTC booster club for my oldest's High school. I then found out he was the one that owned the church across from the school. I used to listen to heavy metal rock groups one in particular was called Godsmack (Go figure) went to alot of rock concerts. My wife and I were on the verge of getting divorced and we just were not getting along at all.

For a whole week God was doing things in my life that only God can do. It wasn't coincidence that my house I bought is walking distance to the church I now go to. I used to workout to rock music until one day before I accepted Christ my tape player quit working I swapped the batteries out and the tape player still would not work. So I switched to the radio. I decided I wanted to give Christan music a chance. So I started to listen to it.

The day I was saved I will never forget. On my way home from work I saw a 3/4 ton pickup with a camper shell. On the back was a sign in big words 'JESUS SAVES!' I didn't really think a whole lot about it at the time till after I was saved.

I had been going to Sunday service I believe twice. and Was invited to the pastors house with about 10 -15 others that were there. My wife was running late because of work and my pastor started on the right side of me and went all the way around the room. EVERYONE WAS SAVED AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER but me. My wife walked in just as it was my turn to talk. That was wen God broke me and I confessed in front of everyone there. (I knew no one) I told them about my issues I had been going through and how much of a sinner I was. I broke down crying and said I am ready to accept Jesus Christ as my Savior. Everyone there let out an AMEN!

The very next day all my music I listened to. Got thrown away I completely stopped cursing. I quit drinking within a few weeks. I inspired a coworker to get back on track. Everyone saw the change in me.

Never again will I ever go back to that other life and never will I quit preaching the Gospel because the new Life that Christ gave me and all the experiences He has given me.

My old life was crucified with Christ on the cross. I have more fun now that I have in all my life as a lost person.

As far as the tape player goes. after I was saved It started working again.

The very next day I was saved Tony Evans http://www.tonyevans.org was preaching about what happens when you are saved.

I was then baptized, discipled, and joined the Choir. My wife and I are going on 12 1/2 years being married and we are closer now that ever. I praise God for His patience for me and the fact that He gave me wife that puts up with me.

God has now inspiered me to write a Book In hopes that God will use this book to put a fire for Christ in Christians lives that only grows stronger. And even inspire those Christians that are not willing to share the Gospel to go out and do what God has commanded us to do.


God Bless you all my brothers and sisters! Looking forward to seeing what this thread brings.

Mike

Hay guys,
Well dis is my testimony, it isn't much so bear wit me!!!


Hay, two years ago i gave my life to the Lord. I wasn't a bad ass, i didn't do drugs, i never smoked, or sniffed n e thing. (Thank da lord) But i was kind of messed up inside. I had a lot of emotional stuff happining, u know i'm young, bak then i was younger, and it's nothing any kid should go through, u know?
And so, like 1 day i wanted to end my life, i hated the world and every1 consumed in it. You know alot of people didn't like me. And i hated alot of people. I'm so happy that i didn't own a gun cuz let me tell u that if i did, alot of people wouldn't be round today. Well n e way, 1 day my uncle and aunt (god bless them)
invited me to church. At first i thought this was jst a waiste of my time, eh? I felt like an outsider. A couple of weeks later i made christian friends that encouraged me, that knew and understood what i was going through. I learnt how to pray, and before i knw it, i was at church every sundaes, going to prayer meetings and everything. A couple of months after that i gave my life 2 da lord, and have never regreted it. Best time of my life.

You know, sometime- as a christian iv'e experienced down falls and stuff. But these downfalls have only helped me to grow up. And wen i do struggle a bit, the Lord is there by my side, comforting me.

Not long ago i got baptised (yayyyy!!!) And now i feel great. Like theres nothing in da wrld that can stop me now.

Yea, so, this is my testimony, it's not much but it's everything to me, and i hopped i've inspired people out there, or to just let them know that at times where you feel like you're alone. You're not. God is with you. Sometimes we just can't, or won't let ourselves see it. God loves all ya'l out dea. He does.

Peace out...
