The Joy of Following Jesus

“Without even realizing it, before I was saved, I lived my life seeking everyone’s approval. I thought I was just being so wonderful and kind. I was told that I was so nice by everyone I met, which only served to reinforce those perceptions of myself. I had always believed in God since I was a young girl, but as the Bible says, “…even the demons believe and shudder.”

Four years ago I brought my daughter to Vacation Bible School at Word Fellowship Church, and the Lord spoke to my heart! I know that sounds kind of strange, and it’s hard to understand if you don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus. I had gone to church my whole life, just going through the motions, figuring I must be going to Heaven. Now, I am certain I am, since I’ve accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and Lord!

The joy of following Jesus is so awesome and amazing for so many reasons! He forgave all of my sins! I no longer have to walk in shame when I think about all the stupid decisions I made in the past. Talking to Jesus everyday in prayer is better than any psychologist on Earth! When I read the Bible, I learn more and struggle less. I am not saying that I never have to deal with problems in my life, but I am saying that walking with Jesus helps me respond in healthy ways and have peace in my heart instead of freaking out!”
