my testimony
« on: April 14, 2006, 01:53:01 AM »

my testimony is boring, but i shall bore you with mine.  

 Im 26 been a believer for about 3 years now.  I used to be full of anger, hating everyone and everything.  I never knew what love was, even used to think i was uncapable of something i didnt understand.  i joined the army in hopes that i could kill people and blow things up, and to get away from a uncaring and unloving family.  i used to drink more than any normal person could, i used to think that the only reason to drink was to consume as much as possible and then throw-up.  i figured if i didnt throw up i didnt drink enough.  ANYWAYS............i listen to talk radio and i bought Glenn Beck's book "the real america" and there are many chapters on GOD.  the book made me cry and laugh, and i bought a bible for the first time.  i read it front to back.  still i didnt believe, i actually thought and said many times GOD hates me.  here is where its really stupid, but i was in a casino with my wife, and i challenged GOD.  I told him if he was real i would win.  well............... i won, only 75$ but it was enough to scare me to death.  I have never been the same since.  I started to go to church with my wife and then one night i was searching for smith wigglesworth on the internet, and i clicked on a ad named "bible-truths" i figured i want the truth and what a better way to find out the truths.  thats my story.  great arent you glad you wasted your time.

 :lol:

GOD bless us all

You know I spent years studying the meaning of the word love. I read C.S Lewis' “ The Four loves and the how bit, but Paul still says it best in 1 Corinthians 13
Love
    1If I speak in the tongues[a] of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

    4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

    13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

David, I wasn't bored at all :D I like knowing a little bit about you then when I read your posts I get more out of it.  You have a lot of wisdom for one so young.  Oh, I've said that same challenge and didn't win anything!

David, thank you for posting your testimony.  It was neither boring or silly.  We shall overcome by the blood of the lamb and the words of our testimony.  Glad to hear yours, brother.

When I was young, did much of the same things.  Drunk lots and lots, loved to fist fight, rebelled big time.  

Through a sincere prayer from a broken young man, He showed me the power of His love.  It's been a search, yearning to know Him, ever since.

His truths are great, aren't they?

God bless,

Gary

thank you for the great post.  I feel as though lately i have been struggling with anger again.  My walk is very lonely, and very confusing.  I feel as though GOD shows me great things only when i read his word, but since i cant read at work, i struggle.  slow to wrath, yes around others, when im by my self i feel the anger.  I hate it.  ok enough, time for a joke my kids told me.

why did the duck cross the park?

To get to the other slide

GOD bless
