PostSubject: Salvation is stress free   Thu Aug 11, 2011 1:25 pm

Hello all. as I stated earlier in my welcome post I am far from an accomplished master of the literary arts. What I am best at is being a firm believer that with god you shall conquer all. I first came to know of jesus as a child, I went to several churches but nothing ever really sank in. When I became a teenager all that was thrown aside like a used pair of socks and I was totally engrossed in MYSELF. I lived the life of reilly not really caring bout much of anything. I did a short stint in the Navy in a time when there was no war and me and my shipmates were mainly focused on who could drink the most beer out of tex's boot in whatever port our ship had landed us in. After the Navy I found myself in a relationship that was going nowhere. I was just existing "Not Living". Then when I was 28 years old a great tragedy befell me. It rocked my world so bad that I actually contemplated the taking of my own life. I was engulfed in fear of the unknown, I was so stressed out and full of anxiety I was obviously the most miserabe thing of a man there could possibly be. Some one, I forget who now, but some said to me. "GO TO CHURCH".
Well quite honestly I was afraid to go to church. I felt if I walked through those doors all hell would break lose. I mean obviously god was already punishing me by taking my life and turning it into a nightmare. I knew there was a god but I did not know really how powerful he was or what was on his agenda. What I did do was I found a bible somewhere? Who knows maybe god put the bible there for me to find. I certainly never remember seeing one my entire adult life. Any ways I began to read and as I read I thought to myself Holy Moly what these people are going through is awful. I began to think how lucky I was. My tragedies did not even come close to those that these people were going through. That was of course in the old testament. I began to feel relieved and read on. Then I started the new testament and I can see why it is labeled the Greatest book ever written. As I followed jesus through his life, a feeling of calm I cannot explain overcame me. I was I guess you would say "Enlightened". I have never been the same since. Whenever I get caught up in my own inner self I reflect back to the Bible. God is Great, God is almighty.
And for me Salvation was Stress Free!

I think that it takes a special kind of person not to blame God when something bad happens, but to run to Him. You have a very inspirational story. I know you stated that you weren't a writer in your introduction, but, perhaps, you should consider writing about your experience. All of the punctuation and grammar, that you said you had trouble with, will work itself out with help from others.
