I Just Realized I am Saved


As I twirled around my living room listening to music and thinking to myself. I began to realize that I am truly a different person. I mean, I said a prayer at 12 years old asking God to come into my heart and save me. Who knew from there I would take a ride that I would never forget. I am almost 42 years old and I have just realized that from the age of 12 up until about a few years ago God only crossed my mind when I needed something, and the things that I was asking for would have allowed me to gain my treasures on Earth instead of in Heaven, I was so deceived...So glad you said no to my wicked wishes God.

I had to turn heads. I needed their confirmation that I looked good.

I began to seek God like nobodies business, and the more I seeked him the more wisdom I obtained, and the more my eyes were opened. I no longer chase riches and wealth, I only chase Jesus now! Now, I truly know what it feels like to be content in any situation. You see! My husband and I have accumulated all this materialistic stuff over the years and now, God has brought us back over and over again to the same financial situation for 20 years and after 20 years our family has finally realized that he does not want us to hustle for the money to pay for these materialistic earthly things that we have acquired, but he wants us to throw up our hands and surrender it all to him. If that means we lose a car or two then so be it. Matthew 6:24 says no one can serve two masters, for either he wi
