I realized after I posted my mom's article that I have never shared my salvation testimony here on my blog.
I had the wonderful privelege to grow up in a Christian home. I thank the Lord for parents who prayed for me even before I was born. They prayed not only for my salvation, but for my future mate, and many things in between. My mom always quoted Bible verses to me (and my siblings) when she laid me down for bedtime. My parents always prayed that their children would get saved at an early age.
Well, I guess you could call almost four years old an "early age"! During family devotions, I had learned about Jesus coming back, and I knew that in order to go with Jesus, you had to be saved. I knew that I wasn't saved, and I was scared about that. My parents had been teaching me that I was a sinner.
So one night while my mom prayed with me before bed, I prayed and asked the Lord Jesus to come into my heart. He saved me!
When I was 12 years old, I got baptized. I knew it was the right thing to do, but I was scared to go up to my pastor and ask him to baptize me! My younger sister, Holly, wanted to get baptized too, so we went together to ask the pastor.
When I was a teenager, I dedicated my life to the Lord, for Him to use me however He felt best.
I praise the Lord for His great salvation!
