Testimony 10: Receiving God's Plan for My Life


Chapter 10

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,
(John 1:12)


Having been confronted with lies and the truth, I also reflected on the things I heard and read at Ft. Bragg. How Jesus had died on a cross to forgive me and how, if I trusted him, He would change my life. I was ready. I had enough. I was sick of my life and the lies. I had all the data I needed. I believed Christ died and rose from the grave. I believed He could forgive me and give me eternal life. I just never embraced the facts by applying them to my own life by following Him. It was like receiving a gift and never opening it. But the scriptures promised that if I would receive Christ in faith He would change my life. So there on the floor, I prayed. My prayer didn’t sound very theological or pious as some would expect. It was simple and honest and it was basically, “O.K. God.” With sincerity of heart, expressed in a simple prayer, I surrendered my life to following Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior on 23 December 1979. Then everything changed.
