Subject:Let me introduce myself . . . [Nov. 5th, 2005|01:28 pm]

I have always believed that God really exists. When I was just a child, my mother taught me to pray and instructed me to say my prayers before going to sleep. However, we did not attend church and now in adulthood, I lack the background that many of you may have. I have made many selfish mistakes in my life. There are numerous situations that I would like to "take back" and forget ever happened. Others have been hurt and disappointed along the way, because of me. You see, I led a very destructive life. I believed that God exists but did I believe Him with my heart and mind? Did I seek Him with my whole being and choose Him for my best friend? I now realize that I cannot change the past but I can ask Jesus to change my heart. Because of Him, my present and future have been changed.

About three years ago, I began seeing the numbers "316" in various places. Still today, I continue to see these numbers repeatedly (at least 5 times per week). I'll wake up suddenly at night, look at the clock, and it reads "3:16". I look at the timer on my CD player and the display says "316". While working on a report at work, I will often see $316.00. A phone number or address that I'm looking for will include this trio of numbers. When paying a bill or purchasing something, my total amount will include this series of numbers. In my heart, I believe that God is showing Himself to me in a way that I will recognize. I am now beginning to see God's presence in many other areas of my life.

I created this journal for two reasons. First, I have a great desire to grow and develop in my walk with God. In order to do this, I need to surround myself with others who make God the number one priority in their lives. Secondly, I want to share my story with others who wish to hear it. My heart has been released from the anger and bitterness that controlled my life for such a long time. Only Jesus could accomplish that for me. Since He worked a miracle in my life, he can forgive and heal anyone who comes to Him.

John 3: 16 says ''For god so loves the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.''

FIRST John 3:16 says ''We know what love is because jesus laid his life down his life for us, and we are led to lay ours down for our brothers and sisters''
