Friend, Forgiver, God, Historical Person, Lord, Son of God, Teacher
Jesus makes me feel
Loving, Confused, Grateful, Purposeful, Not alone,
Am I a follower of Jesus: Yes
What is my journey/story with Jesus?
I am happy to say my journey with Jesus started at a very young age. I am thankful for the knowledge and importance of Jesus my Mom reflected onto me.
How has Jesus helped me (with self, family, work)?
I don`t know how to answer this question because I stay stressed out all the time with my marriage. I do think however that Jesus helps me alot by me knowing that i can talk to him at any given time, i can call for his help anytime. Sometimes I just hate who I am and then I think well Jesus made me so I must not be that bad.(self) I think Jesus wants me to serve others and this is where my heart is so as for working or volunteering I proceed in this direction.
How has Jesus changed me?
At a very young age, I was very innocent, mama used to say God will never hurt or harm little children and I grew up believing this, Jesus was totally in my heart as a very young girl and I was at a great place with him. Then when I was eight, mama divorced my dad and my fav. grandma passed away and we had to move and i had to go to a different school and How could God, Jesus take away a little girls Daddy? How? And my grandmother who i loved so much. It was then I started losing faith in Jesus, though still prayed and went to church and was taught religion. Then, my mother remarried, my stepfather sexually molested me, where was God and all I wanted was my daddy. I guess i started turning away from God at this point, always in my heart but not practicing my faith at all. Time moved on and other issues came about, some issues where i really needed God and I needed to talk with him and feel him and i did this, but still a part of me was skeptical- sorry to say and embarrassed to say. I think so far in my life the biggest tragedy I had to face was losing my mother, after prayers and prayers and hopes and believing that God would heal my mother- well it didn`t happen, she got worse with leukemia, no remission to speak of and then she was gone. I cried for the loss of my mom, I cried because God failed me, or atleast i thought he had- ofcoarse some things we will never understand. It probably took me 7 or 8 years to come back to God and I am here now for the duration, whatever his will is, will be done! My faith is building and my heart is opening to Jesus. Jesus has changed me by some of the decisions i made, some for the good some for the bad, certainly i have asked for forgiveness for my mistakes and hope that I am forgiven.
How do I describe "A relationship with Jesus?"
I think a relationship with God is feeling him in your heart, the way you treat other people is a reflection of the Jesus in you, the way that you love others and respect others shows a relationship with Jesus. Ofcoarse to be able to open the bible and understand the words in it, laying in bed at night and praying and talking to God, Singing to God, Writing to God and writing prayers, I especially think it is important to find time each day for you and Jesus.
How have I experienced Jesus?
I have experience Jesus throughout my life, sometimes through the faith of others, sometimes my own quite solitude.
Why and how did I become a follower of Jesus?
I didn`t choose to become a follower of Jesus, it was born in my heart and instilled through my early years. If i had to make a decision to be a follower of Jesus- I would - I think Jesus is a representation of how i would like to live my life, without being physically tortured and nailed to a cross ofcaorse, but in his genuine kind and loving ways. His strength to carry through, his values, his wisdom and knowledge, his strong ability to forgive others. Who wouldn`t want to follow in his footsteps?
