My Mom's Dying Wish

Over a tissue box worth of tears, I admitted I wanted a relationship with God. I knew I couldn’t fix my life on my own. He prayed with me and on October 6th, I accepted Jesus into my heart. Since then, I have been on a mission to grow closer to God, to heal my marriage, to heal myself, and to follow Jesus’ model of how to love. I am learning to accept life’s happenings as God’s will, trusting that he knows the plans he has for me, plans for hope and a future. I know my mom is smiling, knowing her dying wish for me - to know her savior Jesus Christ as she did - has come true.”

It Feels Right

Jesus has helped me be more patient with people. I always tell people I work with about Jesus and invite them to come to Grace with me and my wife. I lean on Jesus even more when I am underway. It is so stressful to be away from loved ones and in the middle of the ocean but he is always there and he gives me renewed strength each and every day. It feels so right to tell people about Jesus and all he has done for us. So today, I am here to proclaim that Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.

No More Fear

I remember feeling worthless, condemned and so far from God. Even though I hated those feelings, it felt easier to continue going down that path then surrendering to God. One day I decided enough is enough and I haven't looked back since! Now instead of just "knowing" God and his word, I am living my day-to-day life with him, in relationship with him and filling my life with Godly people. I have joined an amazing small group, started serving at church, volunteer when possible, and spend a lot of time alone with God and in his word. I used to live with so much fear and anxiety about life and my future but now I take each day as it comes and I have such peace about what's to come. So, I am here to say I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I cannot wait to see what he has in store for me!
