I received the Lord Jesus Christ on Thanksgiving day back in 1981.

 

 I remember that day as if it were yesterday, I was pregnant with my first child and my former sister in law asked me if I would like to receive Jesus as my Savior and my answer was yes. She then led me in the sinner's prayer. It wasn't too long after, that I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost in my mother's basement. 

 

I am so grateful for God's grace and mercy that has kept me from that time until this very day.

Good one, Donna. Amazing that from such simplicity  of a conversion, you are still standing on that Rock of your salvation, nearly four decades later.

 

This testimony, indeed, shows the simplicity of the Gospel in which is the power of God unto salvation. All from a simple request by a sister in law who was obedient to speak for God. That is also a perfect example of a sister in law becoming ... a sister in grace:-).

I know it is important to keep our testimonies short, but I would love to hear a little more of your story. Why were you so ready to say yes?

Hi Donna. You are spot on. I say, Amen, to your testimony!

 

The Holy Spirit is the one that convicts us of sin while yet sinners in the world (John 16:8) and works in us both to will and to do of His good pleasure (Phil 2:13).

 

I just love testimonies of what God did and is doing today. Even more, when the bits and pieces of those testimonies bring the Scripture alive. So has yours, Donna.

Hi Egging.

Yes, I am as curious as you when it comes down to how God did it or how we made that transition.

 

Like they say, you took the word out of my mouth😀
