I mentioned in my about me, I dedicated my life to Christ on July 25, 2013. I was not looking to be saved. I was just going through a really rough time and I was so angry. I was angry every single day. The littlest things would set me off. I was a miserable person and I had no idea of why I went to work that morning after cursing out my ex-husband for filth via text message and I wanted to crawl underneath my desk. I did not want to be there. I felt like I was going to explode! A co-worker of mine who would always invite me to her church came to mind. I did not know her very well, but I knew that I had to take time out and let her know how I was feeling if I was going to survive that day let alone the rest of my life. I made my way downstairs to where she sat and I asked her if she had a minute to talk to me. Well, that minute turned into two whole uninterrupted hours.

I poured out my heart to her. I told her about all of my troubles and my fears. I told her that I did not know why I was so angry but I just was. She was super sweet. She listened to me and really calmed me down. She witnessed to me for the entire two hours without interruption which was rare because she works in one of the busiest departments within our company. The Holy Spirit was at work! After ministering to me, she asked me to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. She told me how much He loved me and that how everything that I had ever done would be forgiven if I just asked Him to.

Well, I jumped at the chance and accepted Jesus Christ into my life. At that moment, I felt a huge weight lift off of me and out of me. It was as though I was carrying around the weight of the whole entire world within me and in that moment, He took it all away. I wept. Not because I was sad, but because I felt a love surround me that I had never experienced before. I have loved people and people have loved me, but I have never felt such a great abundance of love and caring and light and just, oh, it was and still cannot be explained. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever felt in my whole life! A supernatural love! God forgave me of all my wrong doings and covered them with the blood of Jesus. I have been living for Him ever since. I'm going to end this post here. I have so much more to share. My first year as a baby Christian has been a world-wind, but it has been amazing! Until then, be blessed and may God keep you in perfect peace! ~E
