About MeI have had a rough life, but I have never had to journey it alone. There may have been times that I felt alone, but God has never been away from my side. I was just too blind to see Him at the time. I am very thankful for all that He has given to me. I try to live my life as Jesus showed me...with total love.

10 of 10: My current level of respect/appreciation for Jesus?

Friend, Forgiver, God, Guide, Lord, Prophet, Son of God, Teacher
Jesus makes me feel
Loving, Stable, Calm, Free, Grateful, Healthy, Forgiven, Clean, Purposeful, Accepted, Valuable, Not alone, Secure, Wise, Peaceful,
Am I a follower of Jesus: Yes
What is my journey/story with Jesus?
I still feel as if I am in my infancy in my journey with Christ. It seems that the more I learn about Jesus, the more there is to learn. Is it just me, or do others out there think that we will never stop learning?
How has Jesus helped me (with self, family, work)?
If it were not for Jesus, I would not be on this earth today. During my teenage years I was suicidal. He provided me a dream that had answered a prayer, and from that day forward I came to realize how fortunate I was, how blessed I was, and how loved I was....I AM NOT ALONE, NOR HAVE I EVER BEEN ALONE.
How has Jesus changed me?
Jesus gave me life. Jesus gave me eyes to see the wonder and beauty in this world. Jesus gave me love. He is in my heart, mind, soul,...He is in me. (Love dwells in me)
How do I describe "A relationship with Jesus?"
This one is hard to describe. Jesus is my best friend, my protector, my guide, my example, my true love, my brother and my savior. Whatever time I wake up, whatever I do during the day, I like to invision that Jesus is holding my hand. He is there to pick me up when I fall, he is there to see and share in my pain, and he is there to smile when I have shown others love...HIS LOVE.
How have I experienced Jesus?
Why and how did I become a follower of Jesus?
I have always believed in Jesus, but tried to live my life my way for many years. I noticed a decline in my being...something was missing...I wasn`t the full me yet, or the me that I once was. Don`t ask how it came about...I`m not quite sure. I gazed into the mirror one day, and the face before me was not a face I recognized. It was the face of a woman bent on her own desires, her own lusts, and living life for her own pleasures. And if anyone out there tells you that the only way you can make someone else happy, is if you seek your own happiness...tell them to go fly a kite. Because the happiness that I was receiving at the time was not blessed from God...it was a carnal pleasure. Back to my story. I looked, I stared, and I hated the woman looking back at me in the mirror. Her eyes were cold...where did that warmth and depth go? Somewhere on my journey, I forgot about God. He was still there in my thoughts, but my deeds did not reflect that I loved Him or appreciated Him. I had the attitude that no matter what I did, I would be forgiven...so, out I would go and sin again. So tired of the emptiness I felt inside my soul, I reached out to the only person who could even begin to know the real me. He knew what lay inside my soul, and He knew how to change things around for me. But first, I had to relinquish all my earthly desires, and every time I prayed, I would add, THY WILL BE DONE.
Why and how did I become a follower of Jesus?
What other choice do I have? Without Jesus there is no life.
