Hebrews 12:1

King James Version

12 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about 

with so great a cloud of witnesses, 

let us lay aside every weight,

and the sin which doth so easily beset us, 

and let us run with patience 

the race that is set before us,

I don't know how GOD will show up for you.

Only GOD knows our hearts.

What I do know is my life changed.

When I made a simple declaration.

And really meant it.

To sin no more.

Turned out, that's all GOD was waiting for.

To humble ourselves, and not want to sin anymore.

Proverbs 28:13

King James Version

13 He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: 

but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them 

shall have mercy.

All that stands between GOD and us is sin.

I didn't want to sin anymore.

I wanted to be FREE of sin.

That's all it took for GOD to show up.

Did something miraculous happen right away?

Not right away.

My prayers were answered five months after.

GOD probably wanted to be sure I could stay on track.

For there would be no turning back.

It took me a long time to come around.

It'd be a waste if it came to nothing.

Well, my resolve remained.

I didn't want to sin anymore.

And started dropping sin from my life.

I knew the changes I needed to make.

And I took it.

Seeing my resolve was real, GOD led me to the Bible.

He made me read the four gospels.

Then He let me read Genesis.

I took tons of notes.

I wanted to know everything about GOD.

On that fifth month, He made me born again.

And led me to Bible prophecy right away.

Something many Christians try to avoid.

The miracle is that I seemed to understand Scripture easily.

SPIRIT led me to the appropriate, and precise verses.

The Bible offered all the answers to my questions.

My life was changed immeasurably.

Now, I know GOD's laws, versus man's laws.

Now, I know what to believe in.

Now, I know how loved we all are.

Dear friends, that's all it took:

To refuse to sin any longer.

Makes all the difference in the world.

Your life will change radically.

When you let go of sin, you seek GOD.

It's always been either GOD, or sin.

It's really that simple.

Psalm 14:2

King James Version

2 The Lord looked down from heaven 

upon the children of men, 

to see if there were any that did understand, 

and seek God.

SPIRIT helped me shed the weight of my sins.

By knowing about GOD's laws.

Now, I carry a different load.

JESUS asked I carry my cross.

Matthew 16:24-26

King James Version

24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, 

If any man will come after me, 

let him deny himself, 

and take up his cross, 

and follow me.

25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: 

and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

26 For what is a man profited, 

if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? 

or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Deny myself.

Take up my cross.

Follow JESUS.

So it's been.

The past 44 months.
