Personal Testimony

          I was born and raised in Orange, Texas and lived in the same home for the first eighteen years of my life with both my parents and my older brother.  I was not raised in a Christian, God-fearing home.  I had heard of God and beleived that one existed, but I knew nothing of Jesus and rarely ever attended church.  While in Junior High, one of my fellow students asked me to come to Wednesday night youth group with her. She was not one my close friends and I didn't really like her much, but it kept me from having to go home immediately so I went.  I had fun playing games at youth group and really liked flirting with all the guys so I continued to come, but after all the games and flirting there were really good Bible studies that taught me a lot about what being a Christian really meant.  I started to change the way I lived and how I behaved, because even though I had said I was a Christian all my life, I wasn't acting like it.  Despite changing so much about who I was, it didn't help my depression.  There was a whole inside that just kept getting deeper and deeper no matter what I did or didn't do.  I had learned of Jesus and I knew that I needed to accept Him, but I was too prideful to make that decision and give my life to Him.  Roughly a year later, however, I hit rock bottom and I gave up trying to do it on my own and surrendered completely to God and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior.  It felt like this huge burden had been lifted off me, the whole had been filled with the love of God, and I felt true joy for the first time in my life. Ever since then God has helped me through so much. Through Him I have gone from an genuine angry person to a joyous person, I have learned how to battle depression and not get sucked into those deep places, I have learned to trust Him in every area of my life, and following His plan is so much better for me than anything I could image on my own.  He always provides and is always faithful.

 

My Calling

          When I was a junior in High School, I had a big decision to make about my future: what am I going to do with my life? My plan was to go to Texas A&M and study to be a basketball coach and math teacher. God's plan was for me to be a youth minister and go to Dallas Baptist University.  God used multiple people in my life, mainly my youth minsiters and leaders, to show me that His plan was different than mine.  They challenged me to teach and lead in ways I wasn't really used to, comfortable with, or necessarily good at, but God often calls people to go outside their comfortzone and to do things they aren't necessarily naturally good at because it makes us rely on Him and allow Him to work through us, giving Him the ultimate glory. The summer before my senior year I chose to submit to God's will and follow His plan.  In the following years God continued to affirm His calling in my life and prepared me for a lot to come.  At the end of my college career I truly felt ready for whatever ministry God gave me and, though nervous, was really excited for the future.  That is when God brought me to Adamsville Baptist Church.
