Amazing Grace

“I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me the strength for my work because he knew he could trust me. I used to say terrible and insulting things about him, and I was cruel. But Christ had mercy on me because I didn’t know what I was doing, and I had not yet put my faith in him. Christ Jesus our Lord treated me with undeserved grace and has greatly blessed my life with faith and love just like his own.”
1 Timothy 12:14
This is EXACTLY how I feel. I did used to say very bad things about God. I couldn’t stand Him or the name Jesus. Literally used to make me cringe. But I have been freed from my prejudice and now live my life with full understanding, full knowledge and truth. Thank you Jesus for saving a wretch like me.

  1. What a humble admittance! He never gave up on you, knowing you were fearfully and wonderfully created by God. Blessings to the person He used to bring you to him. Whether because there were those who persistently prayed, or a person who uttered one sincere prayer, or said the right words at the right time. We just never know all that it took, all we know is that he loved us.

    1. The most beautiful piece is that it was my husband that brought me to Christ, before we really knew each other. He asked me to go to church that Sunday, and I promised him I would. The Devil tried to derail my plans, but I made it… walking on foot carrying my own cross and being so late, I thought they wouldn’t let me in the door. When I got there, I was met by Jesus with a love I have never felt before. He had me at hello, and I have never turned my back on Him.
