Joy Of Dawn

Each new day shows His grace, love, and mercy

My Testamony

 Believe

 “Jesus signed my pardon, this I surly know

Took my place on Calvary, now I won’t have to go.”

 I recently learned that the words, what if, can help writers. Then I wondered, what if my neighbor hadn’t invited me to church? What if I hadn’t been in the Christmas play that brought Dad to church? What if the radio station hadn’t played the message that day Dad received Jesus? What if that evangelist hadn’t preached about hell that night Mom came to church? What if it hadn’t been … “I was blind but now I see” how God’s hand has been upon my life. If it wasn’t for Him I don’t know where I would be.

“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:10. When I was about seven I thought I had been saved but, I didn’t understand what Jesus had done for me. As a Christian I shouldn’t have been afraid of death since I would be going to heaven. However I was afraid and I realized that I wasn’t saved. I tried to pray but it was like taking a test to which I knew all the answers. So I wondered what I didn’t understand. I’ve learned that God always answers my doubts and questions. I did lots of listening. I never know just when, where, or how God will answer.

We went to listen to Keith Daniels preach and I learned what I was missing. I didn’t believe. Again I tried to pray but it was like having a key and no lock. “Would I ever become a Christian?” I wondered how would I learn to believe as Romans 10:10 says?

The answer came January 18th, 2004. I can’t explain it. I don’t even know what happened. I can only say that I believed and it was that Sunday night that I asked Jesus to come into my heart and take over my life. Today I know that I am a Christian.

“All my life I’ll give to Him – He gave His for me

When He signed my pardon there at Calvary.”
