My first memory of church was when I was a young girl, both my parents didn’t attend church regularly just on Easter and maybe one other time throughout the year. I can remember it like yesterday because what happened there that Sunday afternoon well…. never happen again because we never went back to church ever again. speaking in a different language no one understood was way beyond dads comfort ability. Even Though God wasn’t taught or talked about in my home, something in me knew he was real. The time in my life I felt closest to him is this time right now, the age of 33. I came to a ministry in Kilgore 2 years ago 2021 and I came here broken, desperate for a different life, desperate to get my son back he was 5 years old and removed from my care 2 weeks prior to coming into this 1-year program. The lord set me free from a needle addiction that I never thought I was going to be able to beat. I couldn’t have done it without him, matter of fact I can’t stay sober without him He gave me back my son,He gave me back my purpose. The desire to please him and not disappoint him is so much stronger then any desire I have ever had. Isaiah 43:19 TPT stop dwelling on the past, don’t even remember these former things, I am doing something brand new something unheard of. Even now it sprouts and grows and matures, do you perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and open up flowing streams in the desert. HALLELUJAH!! So he will make you a whole new person, he will take your heart of stone and make it fleshy and soft. If I had to tell someone why I’m a christian I would say because saying YES to Jesus has been the most rewarding decision, saying YES means not just a different life for myself but for my children and my grandchildren. It will change the trajectory of generations.
