My Testimony

3rd July 2015

I’ve known about God’s love my whole life. My mum's testimony proves how powerful it is and is shown through everything she does, so I have never questioned it.

But in my early teens I got embarrassed about being a Christian, so never told my friends that I went to church and did what I could to fit in, which wasn't putting God first. Then about 6 years ago I walked away from him completely. I stopped going to church and made some ungodly decisions.

Then in August last year a relationship ended, which left me feeling lost, alone and constantly needing to be around friends and family to fill the emptiness I was feeling. It wasn’t until I started going to Alpha that I realised the hole in my life needed to be filled by Jesus. What’s ironic is Duncan (my step-dad) only persuaded me to go in the first place by saying I might make new friends, but it turns out I reconnected with the best friend I could hope for!

I feel complete again. I never feel alone as God is always with me. I know that He always has been, even when I turned Him away.. But I am so glad that He has allowed me to ask for forgiveness and that by His grace I am forgiven. Following Him is the way I want to live my life from now on.

I’m not embarrassed to be myself anymore and will tell anyone that I am a Christian because I'm proud of it!

I watched the last baptisms which really moved me.. So much so I felt that it was something I should do, so I spoke to Andy about being baptised myself straight after!

Baptism is important to me, because in the bible Jesus says if you believe, be baptised. Now I believe, so I want to be baptised!
