Satan claimed me as his. But thank God, Christ had already won the victory over Satan!

My Conversion

The first Friday night of 1996, after a big dinner, drinking, and hot tub party, I went to sleep, only to get up and go into the living room and pray. I knew I needed to make a decision. I couldn’t go on the way I was. I had to have peace. Whatever it took, I had to have it. So after much praying, crying, and turmoil, I surrendered my life over to the Lord, hook, line and sinker. Yep, you got it, everything! I didn’t know how God was going to work things out, but it was now His problem. And the peace that I had been missing all those years, came flooding back into my soul! Oh, how I  had missed that feeling of knowing that things were right with God. It truly is the peace that passes all understanding!

I knew I had a long journey ahead of me, but with God’s help I would keep on the path, and what joy I’ve had ever since! Oh, yes, I had fun in the world.  Anyone who says that the ways of the world are all sadness and gloom, doesn’t know what they’re talking about.  However, without God and His peace, it’s a false “high”.

As you can imagine, I haven’t even begun to touch on all the things that have happened. Eternity won’t be long enough to tell what Jesus has done for me! I praise Him for bringing me back – the lost sheep, the prodigal son and the lost coin all wrapped up in one. The Bible has come alive for me. Its promises are true! We may receive strength to become the children of God. He has opened His heart of love to all of us. All we have to do is fall on the “Rock” and be broken.

Whatever the Holy Spirit tells us to give up, we must be willing to surrender.  The pearl of great price required everything, but it was freely offered to all.

May everyone of us be found ready for the most stupendous event of the ages. It’s just around the corner. And Jesus wants everyone of us to be there with Him in the New Earth, where there will be no pain, sorrow, or disappointments. There all our trials will seem very small indeed compared to the wonderful things He has prepared for us!

  1. Sin is sin and the Lord loves the sinner and sent His Son to die for us so that we might live with Him forever. He gives us the power to overcome and man was given a companion that was of the opposite sex.

    The Lord was pleased with this last and noblest of all His creatures, and designed that he should be the perfect inhabitant of a perfect world. But it was not His purpose that man should live in solitude. He said: “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” {AH 25.2}
    God Himself gave Adam a companion. He provided “an help meet for him”–a helper corresponding to him–one who was fitted to be his companion, and who could be one with him in love and sympathy. Eve was created from a rib taken from the side of Adam, signifying that she was not to control him as the head, nor to be trampled under his feet as an inferior, but to stand by his side as an equal, to be loved and protected by him. A part of man, bone of his bone, and flesh of his flesh, she was his second self; showing the close union and the affectionate attachment that should exist in this relation. “For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it.” “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one.” {AH 25.3}
