I confess – I don’t like to back to where I used to roam. If I see someone that might remember who I was, I turn and go another way. When I know my children will meet someone who “knew me when,” I fear the stories they will hear about me will bring them shame. Those who did know me then know what I am speaking of.
The undeniable contrast between who I was then and who I am today is solely and wholly the result of surrendering, believing, and accepting as my Lord and Savior – JESUS CHRIST. That is IT! Simple and AWESOME all in the same moment. While my life since then has been a process of sanctification it all started with a girl, on her knees, begging God to take her life and make it HIS.
If one person is encouraged to surrender their life because of the work God has done in mine; it is ALL WORTH IT.
Matthew 5:14–16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
