Created for Relationship

Postby Jewing » Thu Dec 17, 2020 8:28 pm

I was saved at a small church revival when I was 10. My parents were not Christians but my grandparents would take us to church when we were with them. As a young man I was struggling to find meaning in life, jobs, etc. I joined the military running from God but he caught me there and I gave him control and found instant peace. It has been a journey at times of taking control of some things back then failing and returning them again to God. In His grace he has grown me and this cycle is now much less frequent. In recent years God has done much healing of life wounds, granted me emotional freedom to feel and experience more than I knew was possible. I have come to deeply believe what God desires of us is simply intimate relationship, and being created in his image, we are created also for deep intimacy with each other.

Enjoyed this part of your testimony, too. Hope to hear more from you.

I love hearing your story. The story of freedom is not as common as it should be. I’ve been on this journey of healing and restoration myself. So much of what I thought to be true about God, church, and myself turned out to be layers of miss-truth that were as useless as a screen door on a submarine. Peace and grace.
