I GAVE JESUS ALL MY HEAVY LUGGAGE TO CARRY

Jesus Did It!

By:  Stephanie Creasy

I had a few restless nights laying in a 6x9 foot cell -- women grumbling, guards hollering, doors slamming and my mind constantly going ...

One day, I sat at a table with two other offenders, just like myself. They were reading the prisoner book titled: Inmate-To-Inmate.  FREE Books Offer!   One had called me to sit closer to hear a story in the book that changed my life forever. It was simply about a woman who was tired of carrying all of the luggage and baggage that for years had been weighing her down. She wanted to give it all to God. She wanted to confess of her sins and lay everything beneath His feet, but evil was working on her as well. Evil made her feel guilty, condemned and unwanted ... changing her mind yet again, about giving it all to God. So she continued to carry the luggage once more. The baggage and luggage that became far too much for her to carry consisted of men, lying, drugs, cheating, stealing, money and manipulating. She was tired of it all.

As the story was being told, I couldn't help myself from thinking about coming into my 6x9 foot cell, and giving it all to him! I sat and listened as the other offender went on telling the story. The emotional and spiritual luggage she insisted on carrying was far too much to carry on her own. But, she cried and kept walking, when finally she stopped because God said to her, "Come my child, confess of your sins. Believe in me, I am all you will ever need."

I glanced across the table once more. My face was red from crying and tears continued to fall. I looked at my sister in Christ and said, "Something keeps telling me to go to my room and give it all to Him! She looked over at me with a look no woman could ever forget and said, "That's God talking to you! What are you doing? Go to your room!"

Fear rose up in me of what other women were going to say or how they were going to react.  The fear made me unsure of getting up and doing what I knew in my heart I really wanted to do. That was evil working on me, now, more than ever, telling me not to go.

Being distracted and blinded by my sister, she stood at my right side and said, "Come on, you're going to be reborn again."

Without looking back, we both walked into my cell. She knelt before me as I sat straight up on my bed, reaching her hands out for mine and asking in the same breath, "Do you want to give it all to God?" Do you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? Do you confess of your sins right now?"

As both of my hands touched hers ... tears of joy streamed down my face. Our hands in each other ... I had just given Him all of my luggage!

It wasn't heavy anymore! I could breathe! I was saved from the penalty for my sins and spiritually reborn!  I had just given it all to God!

As of this writing, I'm 26 years old. I am a mother of four beautiful children. I am currently awaiting sentencing on a D felony - this being my fourth time in jail.

But ... I believe -- and if I can be saved and reborn again spiritually, so can you!

You'll know when it's your time, if you want to be right with God before you die -- I did! 

Staff Note:  Just don't postpone getting right with Him.  You never know when your heart will beat its last, and once that happens, you'll face God's judgment. 

He wants you being right with Him more than YOU do!  He died proving it, and when He died ... He had YOU in mind.

A Special Message:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
