Has fear controlled your life?  Has fear caused you to turn your back on the one you love?  Has fear of what others may think or say about you ever stopped you from being you?

Friend, it's time for you to be who God made you to be.  Do not allow fear (the devil) to hold you back any longer.  I used to be bound by fear, but not any more.  There was hope for me, and there is hope for you.  Here's my story:

I have been going to church all my life.  I first gave my heart to Jesus when I was nine years old.  I was so excited.  I couldn't wait to tell my teacher, Mrs. Brown.  She was so happy for me.

I suddenly became afraid.  Not of Mrs. Brown, but what if one of the other kids found out.  What would I do?  What would they think of me?  This fear gripped my life.  I went to church but ignored  what God wanted.  I let this fear come between me and God.  I was shy so it was hard for me to talk to others.  I had only a few friends, no one I was close enough to talk to about how I was feeling.  I felt all alone and afraid.

This went on for 8 years.  During this time, God would touch my heart, but I wouldn't listen to Him.  But He wouldn't give up on me.

Finally, when I was 17 years old, God changed my life.  He took the fear away and forgave me for turning my back on Him.  He changed me.  From that day forward, I have given my life to Him.  He has taken away my fear!  He replaced that fear with peace.  I no longer feel alone!

It has been 27 years since I gave my heart to Jesus, and I haven't turned back since.  If you live your life in fear, Jesus can help you.  He can help you overcome your fears.  If you want peace and would like to ask Jesus in your heart, just pray and believe in your heart, and He will help you too.

Real Life Stories - Chapter 54:



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 yours 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 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.
