There’s a song out called ‘It’s all about that bass’. Really, it’s all about Jesus. I have been healed of so many physical things and so many spiritual and emotional problems..all because Jesus loves me. Certainly not because I’m anyone special, just because He loves me.Raised a Catholic, I was taught that God was some big ogre in the sky who would smash my fingers as I was holding on for dear life. Throughout my teenage years, suicide was on my mind due to the things my grandfather and earthly father did to me. I was morose and morbid.
In high school I had a best friend who got deeply into Jehovah’s Witnesses. Of course, I learned about it. Didn’t like what I saw/heard.
Also in high school, I took instruction in the Mormon religion. Again, I didn’t like what I heard, particularly the theory on how black people came to be in this world. My friend, who was one of those teaching me, was black. I have heard they have since changed it. That’s the difference of being a follower of Jesus the Christ. His Word never changes.
When I moved back home to Sacramento, Ca after getting out of the military, I met a gal who told me about Jesus. I drug my feet in asking Jesus to take over my life because I thought *I* would change. I thought my laugh would change, who I knew I was, would change. Then I got up the courage and on June 6, 1979 I lay in my bed about midnight and asked God to forgive me of everything bad and wrong I had done. I told Him I was sorry and asked Him to sit on the throne of my life, I asked Jesus to be my Lord, my Savior.
Nothing changed. LOL Not my laff, nothing. I didn’t even FEEL different. About a week later, everywhere I walked and every vehicle I rode in, I felt like I was 9 feet off the ground. Literally. It was as if I walked on a cloud. It was STRANGE, but it was REAL.
This Christian walk is all about learning how to forgive, how to trust God, how to be kind, to be patient, to love the way HE wants us to love. We are to LOVE our neighbor as we love ourselves. Love ourselves. Love others. Forgive ourselves. Forgive others.
Sometimes we get bored as humans, but being a Christian is not boring. I used to think it was. But if we get to studying a phrase, a word, a concept, just studying the Bible, we find it’s not boring at all.
Without Jesus, I would be living, but I wouldn’t be ALIVE.
If you would like to pray to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, just talk to Jesus right now. Tell him your heart. If you have a prayer need, feel free to email me
