I felt to share a few things with people here so i will try my best to get it across as simple as possible.
Alot of people who hear about the christian faith turn away and think no way am i going to believe in that. No way am i going to change or even i am now to old to change my ways. Or even im young!! I have to live life to the full.
That's what i thought. I am way to young to go about believing that there is a God. I wont have any life of my own. I will have to stop doing all bad things.
I learned that this is not true. I came to find that the change from being of this world to being of God was a true blessing and many blessings were soon to follow.
My life wasn't the best. I had been in phsyciatric care often from suicide attempts and being seriously mentally unstable. I was on drugs and in order to make the money for my drug habbit it was one sin after another. From stealing to something more drastic.
This resulted in my self-harming not only by drugs but intentionally harming myself physically to feel relief from any pain i had ever felt.
The day i gave my heart to the Lord i instantly stopped self harming everyday. Yeah, we all have set backs but by far no where near what i was doing in the past. No illegal drugs are used by me anymore. I stopped the sins i had to do in order to make money for the drugs too.
Its now exactly 1 year since i gave my heart to the Lord and i have changed very much that my friends have seen something new. Somethings they don't like, other things they do.
They don't see the angry side of me anymore nor do they see me unable to cope no more. Yeah, they don't like me going on and on about God so i don't. I now pray quietly for them and watch God work in their lifes.
One other thing that hit home when i became a christian was that something had to be changed and there was no way i was going to be able to change this alone. I didn't like dating men! I knew within me that this had to change for sure. I felt so guilty about it.
GOD CHANGED IT ALL!!!!
I can't even remember exactly when he changed me and turned me from this sin but the fact is, i have had a boyfriend since then and praise God for showing me through that relationship that i was changed completly.
God is working in me so much! He is working through me. And through Him i have seen the lowest turn its head from me and the heart of the highest high love me and lead me in righteousness.
Praise God for His mercy and unconditional love.

Praise the Lord sister. You are living proof of 2 Corinthians 5 : 17 "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new." Only God can change us so drastically. What an awesome God we serve.

Dear Lesley,

How wonderful, how awesome is the Lord our God. That through us, we are a witness of His unending love. You are indeed a new creation. May He bless you this day and every day.

"My word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." - Isaiah 55: 11 (NIV)

God bless,
