Hi everyone! I thought that it was about time that I shared with you my testimony. This is a snippet of how I found God through Jesus Christ.
Read more about my story and how I started this blog in my about me page.
By the way! If you’ve thought about starting a blog of your own, I walk you through each step here in how to start your own blog!
What is a testimony
If you’re unfamiliar, a testimony by Christian standards is basically the story of how we’ve come to know and accept Christ as our saviors and how our lives have been affected.
This is a very personal account and it can be very scary to tell your side of it but I know that we’re all friends here and this is a no judgment zone!
There are several accounts, reasons, and explanations on testimony in the bible and by several I mean several!
This is done because God calls us to be living testimonies and this is because He says that you must go out and profess what has happened to you today in order that others might see it and believe themselves, loosely translated from John 4:39.
So you can see how important it is to tell our testimony but like I said it can be very scary! Maybe my own story can help provide you with encouragement and see something within my story that can help bring you comfort.
I grew up in a Christian home, not religious, don’t get them confused because there is a big difference between the two!
I’ve always known who God is and who Jesus is. It wasn’t until I was about 13 though before I accepted him on my own without the nudge of my parents.
I’ve always been different. Unique in my own way and I felt wholly alone. Despite all of my best efforts, it seemed that I was always on the outside of every group; joke, gathering and I mean you get it. I felt this way in school, church, and even my family.
As time went on, I developed other “issues” I struggled with anxiety and self-loathing that transformed in self-harm.
I turned my feelings that I couldn’t understand fully or control onto myself.
I spent about two years cutting my arms and wearing long sweatshirts to cover them up.
God used my parents to uncover the secrets and help me find Him again.
Ever since then, God has always been the answer.
He’s always with me so I’m never alone.
He helps me control my anxiety.
He places people in my life to remind me of my self-worth.
He is the answer to my every prayer.
I mean it guys, I would not be here breathing if it weren’t for Him.I am because He is. Click To Tweet
There are several instances where He has saved my life physically and if it weren’t for the love and guidance that I get from Jesus Christ, I would not be in a good mental state right now! I would be constantly searching for the answer to finding joy and peace but looking in all the wrong places.
What else you need to know
I have a tattoo that says I am because He is and it’s true. I wouldn’t who I am today if it weren’t for the acceptance of Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.
I don’t tell you this to try to make it appear as though I’m perfect because believe me I am far from it!
I tell you this so that you can see that I’m someone like you and I have found all the answers in my faith. If you have questions about God please don’t hesitate to ask! Here’s a link directly to my contact page. I don’t admit to knowing everything about being a Christian because I don’t! Not even close!
But I do know something about being alone and unhappy.
Now I want you take away one other thing about my testimony and that is that I fall. All the time! I’m not perfect and I fall every single day by one sin or another but God loves me unconditionally and He will always forgive me and accept me. As He will for you when you accept and believe in his son, Jesus Christ.
Like I said, don’t hesitate to reach to me if you have any thoughts! And if you want to stay connected to this blog then subscribe below.
