Experience the Savior

They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.” John 4:42

My prayer has always been that people would see Jesus in me, and would want what I have for themselves. In spending time with the Lord this morning I came across this verse. It's so beautiful. In John, Chapter 4, we tend to focus more on what the Samaritan woman experienced that day. She encountered Jesus and her life was forever changed!

This morning I found myself focusing more on those who heard her testimony and believed. (Many of the Samaritans from that town believed in Him because of the woman's testimony. John 4:39) Her experience with Jesus caused her to tell others and their lives were forever changed!

I don't want my life-story to be about me. I want it to be about what Christ and what He has done in my life. I'm not here writing about my military life experience really. I'm writing about what I know God himself did in our lives to lead us to this place, and what He continues to do.

The greatest story I can ever tell is how Jesus Christ changed my life and my husband's life. We are on this path because years ago we encountered the Savior. When Jesus reveals Himself to you, you realize He sees you just the way you are. He knows everything about you, even your sin, yet He loves you unconditionally. There's no greater love than this. Jesus died on the cross for our sin, not His own for He was without sin. (This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:10)

If you're searching for truth, my prayer is that you found it here. If you are seeking answers to your empty heart, having tried everything to fill it, Jesus is reaching out right now. If I can help lead you to the Savior, let me know! I would love to share more of what God has done in my life, and lead you to experience the same thing. Leave me a comment with a way to get in touch with you. It's the most important decision you'll ever make, and your life will forever be changed!

I AM A SINNER, WHO SPENT ALL HIS CHILDHOOD IN ORPHANAGES. I DESERVE TO GO TO HELL, BUT JESUS, THROUGH HIS SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS - DELIVERED ME FROM MY INEQUITIES - I'M BLESSED! I AM JUST AN INSTRUMENT GOD USES TO TELL OTHERS ABOUT HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST, WHO DIED ON A CROSS FOR MANKIND'S SIN

About 3 years ago I dropped into a black hole – four months of absolute terror. I wanted to end my life, but somehow [Holy Spirit], I reached out to a friend who took me to hospital. I had three visits [hospital] in four months – I actually thought I was in hell. I imagine I was going through some sort of metamorphosis [mental, physical & spiritual]. I had been seeing a therapist [1994] on a regular basis, up until this point in time. I actually thought I would be locked away – but the hospital staff was very supportive [I had no control over my process]. I was released from hospital 16th September 2004, but my fear, pain & shame had only subsided a little. I remember this particular morning waking up [home] & my process would start up again [fear, pain, & shame]. No one could help me, not even my therapist [I was terrified]. I asked Jesus Christ to have mercy on me & forgive me my sins. Slowly, all my fear has dissipated & I believe Jesus delivered me from my “psychological prison.” I am a practicing Catholic & the Holy Spirit is my friend & strength; every day since then has been a joy & blessing. I deserve to go to hell for the life I have led, but Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross, delivered me from my inequities. John 3: 8, John 15: 26, are verses I can relate to, organically. He’s a real person who is with me all the time. I have so much joy & peace in my life, today, after a childhood spent in orphanages . God LOVES me so much. Fear, pain, & shame, are no longer my constant companions. I just wanted to share my experience with you [Luke 8: 16 – 17].
PEACE BE WITH YOU

The thing I have always loved most about you IS definately how evident the Lord is in your life. How in love you are with him and your boldness in letting it be known.

I am praying for you as you prepare to leave. May the Lord give you the strength you need in the next few weeks.
