|This pic was taken after I prayed to accept Jesus in my life.|
Today, as I reflect I still remember that special day I gave my life to my Lord Jesus.
I had the blessing of having my husband Ruben lead me to Christ. At the time, he was my boyfriend and we had only dated for six months. You see, it was all part of the plan. God’s plan. The Lord works like that. He knows us better than we know ourselves.
On a quiet spring afternoon, Ruben drove me to this little church. We walked inside. No one was there. Since Ruben was part of the staff, he had a key. So we had the church all to ourselves. I thought we were going there to eat lunch and play drums.
Little did I know, I was minutes away from making the greatest decision of my life!
We sat together on a pew. Ruben began to explain the plan of salvation to me and had me read verses in the Bible. He told me that Jesus came to forgive me of all my sin.
I knew this was serious. I felt the atmosphere change. Tears flooded my eyes. My heart felt like it would explode. There was a battle brewing up inside of me.
Then, I got down on my knees with Ruben and prayed.
For the first time, I knew the answer for my life was Jesus. I wanted Him.
I asked him to forgive me and told Him I wanted to serve Him all of my life.
It was simple and beautiful.
At that moment, I felt clean. I knew I was different.
All of the pain of my past was healed and the shame of my sin was gone.
I can’t believe it has been 20 years already? Time sure goes by fast.
Even now, as I write this, tears come to my eyes. Tears of thankfulness. Tears of joy.
I’m so thankful to Ruben, my husband who was obedient to the Lord. He shared the gospel with me and that is truly special. That is true love.
I can say that serving God and living for Jesus is the Only way and the Best way.
Without Him, I am nothing! He has delivered me from fear, curses, and death.
He has given me love, joy, peace . . . Life and life more abundantly. Freedom!
This is my story, my Love story.
I encourage you to remember your love story! The Love story between you and your Savior. Talk about it. Tell your children. Tell others. When we are in love, we want to share it. Don’t we? Share His love. He loves you my friend!
Fall in love with your First love again.
For the One she had been searching for all of her life.
A tender sacrifice, yet so profound.
