Courtney @ www.faithfulbloggers.com has initiated the first Christian Group Writing Project, and the topic is Psalm 23. Each participant is to choose one of the six verses to focus their post on. You have until July 5 to choose your verse, and until July 12 to publish your post.
I chose verse
3"he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake."
This is my testimony.
Jesus came into my heart, when I invited him at the age of 7, one Sunday night, at home, after church, and I followed up the very next Sunday, with baptism to announce my salvation.
I attended church faithfully and was active in the church's children's program and then youth group, but I didn't have a strong Bible study and daily walk with Him. He never left me, and I never became "unsaved", but I felt the need to "rededicate" my life often. He was always there to "restore my soul".
When I was in high school, I did some things that I thought would make other people like me. Then, I tried to do some things to cover up my sins.
When I repented of my sins, he restored my soul. He restores my soul daily, when I repent of my sins and commit my day to Him, and He guides me daily in paths of righteousness for His name sake. I am still a sinner and not worthy of His grace and mercy, but I am a Christian, and desire to always be in His will. I desire to do what is right. I desire to do what He has planned for me. He is leading me in paths of righteousness, for His glory, to try to help bring others to Him.
