Excuse the layout..I had to copy and paste!
Ever been lost and needed directions, but simply didn’t want to stop and ask for help or guidance? Well that was me for many years. I needed something that only one personcould fix. My mother of my father couldn’t even help me, only Jesus Christ. FindingJesus Christ has brought me Love, Faith and Peace. My life has been an interestingjourney over the years and I don’t know where I would be today if I would not havefound Jesus Christ.I have sought love in all the wrong places, until I found Jesus Christ I never knewwhat love really was. According to scripture, God is love. So when I found him, I foundlove. Now this isn’t a counterfeit type of love, this is a genuine love that couldn’tmeasure up to any other type of love. This is a type of love that someone literally dies foryou and pays the price for your sins type of love. I found love on a Sunday morningsitting in one of the most unbearably hard wooden pews at my church. The temperature inthe sanctuary had to be below freezing; I could see the ice cycles hanging from thewindow panes. As I sat in total discomfort trying to listen to the pastor preach over thechattering of my teeth clinching together from the cold. I found focus towards the end ofthe message where he said that there was a man named Jesus who died for us and shedhis blood for our sins so that we could have eternity with him forever and that he lovedus. Not to mention that we were forgive for all the wrong doings and all the rebelliousdays that we’ve had. I was in total awe. At the moment of all this and me trying to retain
it all, a feeling came over me that was extremely hard to explain. I felt a peace. A feelingI’ve never felt before; I knew it was spiritual. It was almost like a newborn baby beingheld by his mothers warm arms tucked away close to her heart. I knew that day I wouldnever be the same. That day I found love.After finding love, there was faith that I obtained. Faith had to come with time.Faith is defined as complete trust in someone or something. Well I have to say with overthe years after finding Christ; he has proven to me that I could have complete trust in himand only him. There was a time that I got really sick and I didn’t know if I would life ordie. I began to call all my family members and let them know that I loved them. Thedoctor told me that I had a terminal illness that caused me to only have about threemonths to live. I was totally astonished. But I remembered that I had a savior that couldmake the impossible possible. I remembered that I had a savior that could make a wayout of no way. So I began to pray and trust in Jesus to do all the work and I rested. Ibelieved that if God could raise Jesus from the dead, that he could work on my behalf andheal my body. I was home one afternoon taking a nap and I received a phone called thatalmost gave me a heart attack with the ear-piercing ringtone that was loud enough to hearclearly at a live New York Jets football game. I picked up the phone and it was my doctor.My heart fell to my stomach because this was the day that I would get my test resultsback from my MRI. He told me calmly that my tests were back and asked was this a goodtime to go over my results. I immediately began to pray and I heard a quiet still voice say,“Have faith, trust me.” My heart came back up to my chest from my stomach and Iquickly said, “yes sir, please proceed”. The doctor told me that the results came backnegative and I ended up having no illness, no issues. I was completely A-OK. From that
day forth, I knew that no matter what was coming against me; having faith would be theultimate option.Finally, I have found peace with Christ. When I say peace, it’s a peace thatsurpasses all understanding. There would be times all hell would break loose in my life,but in the midst of the storm I had peace. In the midst of World War 3 with my family, Ihad peace. The time I was told I only had three months to live, there was peace. The wordpeace is defined as having freedom from disturbance. In finding Christ, I have also foundpeace.Peace and faith have been less challenging qualities to have throughout thisjourney. I’m a work in progress with mastering love. I still find it hard to love people whoare evil to me. Finding Christ has been the most beneficial affair that I’ve encountered.I’ve learned so much in this walk, yet there is so much more to learn. I plan on stayingthe course with this amazing friend I have named Jesus. I don’t need anybody else.
