An anonymous testimony from a sister
I must confess to you, I have had a terrible
struggle the last few months. But I got right with the Lord a few weeks ago. It
feels so good to have all that weight lifted from my shoulders. I sometimes feel
like I get so weighted down that I can't get right, I know that is wrong, but
I get sometimes to the point that I get behind in praying or reading my Bible
and I can't catch up. I know your thinking What? But in my mind if I miss a day
then I am behind in my fellowship with the Lord and then I will miss more and
more and then I am to the point that I can't catch up, but a few weeks ago I just
gave it all to the Lord and got right with him. I even got right recently with
some people at our church. That is a hard thing to do if you harbor bad feelings
towards them. ( I know it is Sin) But Praise the Lord for waiting for me
patiently. I also praise him for seeing value in me when I had none. It is so
wonderful that the Lord would save me. I was reading in Proverbs tonight (mainly
because so many of my sins are dealt with in there) and I read a verse that I
have read many times before but the Lord brought to my heart.
Be not wise in thine own
eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
I know the Lord gave that to me tonight so
I can remain in his will. Sometimes I get like Elijah in thinking " Lord
I am the only one who does this or that." He brings me to that realization that
I have so many things to work on that I don't need to look at others but my own
sinful self. I just wanted to share that with you. I don't like to admit when
I am stumbling or just plain wrong. I am just praising him for his mercy towards
me. I am just thankful that he forgave me and forgets my sins.
Truly a message
that we all can take to heart. Thank you for sharing this with us, sister!
1 John 1:9
we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse
us from all unrighteousness.
