I don't ever remember a time that I did not know who God was. I knew the days of creation, the Ten Commandments, the nativity story and the Easter story. I can count on two hands how many times I've missed Sunday church over my life. As a child, however, that was all Sunday morning stuff. Looking back I can't say that I trusted God with my life or sought His will. After having my first child I attended a Christian mothers' group, honestly for the food and to socialize my child. Every meeting ladies would share their testimony. I had never heard of praying over a situation or stepping out in faith! I began feeling convicted of many of my daily choices. One day I realized I would not be renewing my subscription to Glamour magazine. Next I switched my radio station to WJTL and after that it was giving up my soap opera (a serious family tradition and I had watched since birth!). I began praying before meals, submitting to my husband, studying the bible. God was wooing me and He became a part of my everyday life, my decisions, my motivations, my every breath. What freedom I found in my gracious God! It was baby steps along the way and I am a work in progress. I am so thankful to those that shared their testimony those many years ago. They made me thirsty. Jesus Christ, my personal Lord and Savior quenches my thirst!
