“For God so loved the world that he sent His only Son. That whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Up until that time I was an atheist.
I didn’t believe in a thing, I just didn’t openly act like I did. I lied a lot. I told people I believed in the god they wanted me to believe in because it just made things easier.
I went to religious events because I wanted to fit in. I didn’t show who I truly was because I didn’t want to deal with the judgment that people put upon those who call themselves total non believers.
But the One, True God of the Universe had other plans for my life.
He wove His way into my life when I needed Him most.
He showed Himself and spoke to me when He knew I was finally ready to hear it.
He turned this liar who called themself a Christian, untruthfully, into a true believer.
This didn’t happen overnight. It occurred over months and honestly, I have a feeling it had been happening ever since my birth, but I only became open enough to see it as an adult.
It’s been a wild journey with ups and downs. It has included many times of shaking faith, and many times where God literally sends me signs to remind me of His deep love for me.
If you’re feeling that tug on your heartstrings from an unknown source, choose to open your heart and mind up to it. He pursues us because He LOVES us, but only we can choose to turn around and allow Him into our lives.
Don’t wait for your journey like I did, start now!
