BIRTHday

Today is a very special day for me--one of my favorite days of the year. On December 28, 2004 I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Of course December 28 is my favorite day of the year--it's the anniversary of the greatest day of my life.

After our wedding :)
I had been going to church every once in awhile and while I knew all about Jesus, I knew that I did not know Jesus. I have to be honest. I was so selfish--I just wasn't ready to say my life is Yours. But on December 28, 2004 my life changed forever. I don't like to celebrate my actual birthday, but when December gets here I always get so excited about this day.

I remember going to a Kevin Derryberry concert a few days later at my church and weeping as I listened to his testimony. That was the first time I told anyone of my decision. I still have a picture of myself and a high school friend from that night and I will always cherish it because of the story behind it.

My life was never the same. There have been so many times that I was not faithful to God--I've made so many selfish decisions. But the amazing part is God was always faithful. There was a point in my life since then when I tried to run from God, but He was always there. I changed, but God never did.

I honestly don't know if I could have physically survived this past year without God. I wholeheartedly believe that you will face things in your life that are absolutely more than you can handle. However, you will never face something that God can't carry you through.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13
