Jesus Did It!
CRUTCH TO CHRIST
By: Linda Warne
I once considered myself an agnostic. I enjoyed reading psychology and self-help books and thought that if I could live according to those books I'd be happy and fulfilled. I lied and didn't feel guilty. I cursed and didn't feel badly about it. I stole things as a teenager and didn't think anything of it.
I was very lonely and empty. Life was very unfulfilling for me. I spend a lot of time just daydreaming and hoping for a life filled with love and inner peace. I had many meaningless relationships that left me so empty and lonely after they ended.
I attended a community college in November 1981 and that's where I met my husband. I was attracted to his blue eyes and gentle personality. He told me that he was a Christian. I told him that I thought Christianity was a crutch and that the Bible was a myth.
We ended up dating for five months and then got married. My husband felt convicted about marrying a nonbeliever. He prayed for God to somehow bless our marriage. He quietly lived out his Christianity and prayed for my salvation. Other people were praying for me.
One evening in 1982 I couldn't sleep. The Holy Spirit began convicting me. There was a heavy feeling and I realized that I wasn't right with God. I sensed God's holy presence in the darkened room. A still-small voice spoke to me and said, "You are rebellious toward Me. You need to go to Jesus."
I had broken God's laws and Jesus paid my fine by dying on the cross. My heart felt so convicted of my sins and I prayed to God to forgive me. I asked Jesus to come into my life. I repented of my sins and put my trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. He died on the cross, was buried, and rose three days later. After praying to God that heavy feeling of conviction left and I sensed an inner peace.
The next day I told my husband and he felt that my salvation was an answer to his prayer. I had a hunger for God's Word and a desire to please God. The Lord wanted me to forgive everyone who has hurt me in my life. He took my hard heart and gave me a soft heart. He healed me emotionally. He delivered me of insecurities and fears. I was afraid of driving, people, and trying new things. I was never able to have children but the Lord has given me a content heart. I now work with children. The Lord healed my right leg of pain and has touched my respiratory system.
I am a new creation... the old has gone and the new has come. (2 Cor. 5:17).

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.
