Fairy L.’s Story

amazinggrace-p1 (Custom)What was your life like before you met Christ? * My life before my salvation was a life all about self. It was about my selfish desires. I was truly lost. I was so confused about what my life was really all about. It seemed to have no meaning. It was filled with sin and I was not very happy.

How did you come to Christ? * I came to Christ when I realized that I needed to be forgiven for all the wrong I had done in my life. I could not carry the heaviness that my sin had imposed on me. I was expecting my first child and I knew I could not be the kind of influence in his life that I needed to be unless I changed myself. My husband and I were attending a little church in Alabama at the time when I felt the Holy Spirit tugging on my heart to commit my life to the Lord. I was baptisted at this church. My growth in the Lord was not straight up. It wasnt until I moved to Tennessee that I truly started growing in the Lord. It was here, where I came in contact with many people who are truly set apart for God. Here I witnessed the lives of many people that lived what they believed. Soon after moving here, I rededicated my life and began to grow in the Lord.

What is your life like now in Christ? *    My life now is totally different. It is not all about me. It is about what God put me here for – “to glorify Him”. I now have peace like I never had before. When I lay down to sleep, I know if I do not wake up I will be in the arms of my loving Abba and when I wake every morning, I pray to him to use me in a way that will honor him through out the day. I can have joy even though my life may seem to be falling apart because I trust that he is working for my good. It is so comforting to know that he loves me even when I am sometimes not very lovable.
