Hello everyone! I hope you are having an incredible day. I have really been thinking about being able to witness to people about my Jesus. And I am not really in a position to reach a lot of people from day to day, but I have a huge burden for the people on this platform who have made it known that they have problems in their lives. I don’t say this to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but I believe that this needs to be said.

I got saved over this past summer. I have been to church all my life, but this was the time that God had set aside for me. I wanted to share some of my feelings throughout that experience. I was scared. I knew that I was lost and going to hell, and I knew what the Bible said about salvation. But I’m an over thinker and I kept thinking things like,”well it can’t be that easy, or yeah but what else?”I finally came to the place where I didn’t worry about the world, I didn’t worry about where my family was (I got saved at a church camp) or about what the people around me thought. All I cared about was making sure I was going to heaven.

All I had to do was listen to this verse
Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
And I did. I had many times so I was confused as to why it hadn’t happened yet. I kept telling myself maybe it’s not my time yet. But what I had to do was ask, believe, and receive. I had already asked, and I already believed that he would, I just had to believe that he had saved me.

Aside from me he died on the cross for you. He loves you and he will accept you. But he also wants us to grow. He wants us to grow out of our sins. I know a preacher who says that we are all dirt bags. Now he doesn’t say that to condemn us. He says it in awe of the idea that an all powerful God would give the life of his only son for a dirt bag, good for nothing sinner like me. So I beg you to find Jesus. I beg you to get on your knees and pray. Pray for your eternity. Because I am. And people in your life are, and they care about you more than you know. God cares about you more than your mind can ever comprehend.

I know this has been lengthy but if you have made it this far please do this for me.
Go listen to this song
I am not afraid to cross that river.
And if you can’t say the same thing than seek help. Seek Jesus. Thank you so much. I love you and am praying for great things to happen in your life.


I’m glad you have been able to find what you believe in, and grow in those beliefs!
I moved this post to the Christian Crafters space so those who are in there can find it :]


Thank you so much for this <3. Ive been struggling with my spiritual life recently and this really encouraged me <3


I love Romans. I am in bible college and one of my instructors said if you can read and understand Roman 1-8 you will have an understanding that most Christians don’t get. Testimony is key, everyone loves to hear positive stories.


What a wonderful story young one.
I accepted Christ when I was 16. My biggest regret in life is I didn’t plug into community and/or discipleship right away.
I’m still struggling with seeing my past through God’s eyes. I now know that so many of my decisions were made out of broken ness.
Find a Bible translation that you like to read, not a study Bible, just one whose language jives with you. I read the Message Bible, other ones are The Amplified Bible, New Living Translation, The Living Bible, Passion. These translations are paraphrased that’s why they should not be used for Bible Study ( such as a studying something as it’s translated in Hebrew or Greek).
And forget that “ pray for 10 minutes a day” every day. Just talk to God about everything, be honest, and talk to Him like you would anybody else. I talk to God all day about everything. My temptations, my feelings, anything I’m angry about, sad about, every problem, and then I wait to see how He will answer it.
You will recognize God’s voice the more you read His Living Word. I don’t know how it works, it just does. There is a mystery to being in relationship with God. For me, I distinctly recognize God’s voice in my mind. He is never accusing/rushing you to hurry, , His voice is tender, sweet, even when correcting you. Satans lies will leave you feeling shame, condemned, hopeless, worthless, God leaves you feeling hopeful, loved to your very being, lifted up, encouraged.

That’s all for now. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions, or ask for help, your brothers and sisters are to take you by the hand as God’s hands….

God is kind, but he’s not soft. In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.
