Authors Note: I was thinking the other day what would be a great way to tell what God has done for me... and a friend of mine kept telling me to write more fanfiction... but I didn't know what to write then I saw that the "Bible" was on and I thought this would be a great way to tell my testimony all over the world! So here I am!
This year on July 5 my Youth Group went to camp in Cleveland, TN. I was so excited. It was my first time going. Again I was so excited. When we got there we all unpacked. That's basicly what we did all that day was get use to our surroundings. The next day changed my life forever. Chris and Amber, two people from our youth group, were saved. I already thought they were saved... but I guess they weren't, but I was so proud of them! That night when they gave their testimonys is what made me think. They both had basicly the same story. They both thought they were saved, but they weren't. And pride was holding them back. I felt the exact same way. I thought I was saved... but I had that doubt in me. Everytime a preacher would ask people to come up to the altar to accept Jesus into their lives I would stand there and would feel him tugging at my heart. But Satan had my feet in cement... and I wasn't letting God break it. Well that night I was reading my Bible and thinking about it while my room mate Christy was across the hall talking to other members from our Youth Group. Tears started pouring down my face. I was thinking about my grand father who had passed away a month ago and me not being saved at the same time which was too much and I couldn't hold it in any longer. Less than five minutes later Christy walked in. I covered my face with my hair so she couldn't see me crying because she was about to leave to go back to our friends room across the hall. She had asked me if something was wrong and I just told her no. What I didn't know was she faked like she had shut the door and asked me was that all. I told her everything. She told me that she was going to go and get Amber, Lauren, and Summer. They came in there and we all prayed together. All I can say is my life has never been the same. I've given up a lot of things, but my Lord and Savior is worth it. Without him I would be nothing. As I finish this I'd like to ask you... Do you have Jesus in your life?... Do you think you do, but have that doubt? Whatever you do don't let pride get in the way. Accept him into you heart today... You'll be glad you did. I know I am!
