My name is Brenda Taylor and this is my Personal Testimony.
"I was saved [Born Again] at the tender age of 19. I had been invited to go to a Church Service with my Sister and *Brother-in-Law I decided to go with them, I knew there was a God but I did not know Him nor had ever experienced His presence (Spirit). There I sat, in the back pew, it felt like someone was pulling me up out of the seat to go to the altar. I turned around and there wasn't anyone there. Here I was crying and feeling what I now know was the presence of the Lord, but not knowing then what it was because I had never experienced anything like this before. I was crying because of this overwhelming love and want for me but also helping me realize my need for Him as well as my personal guilt and that I could receive His forgiveness! His Holiness was absolutely overwhelming!
I too wanted something but I didn't realize before then what it was, I found that it was Jesus pouring Himself out. I personally felt like life was not worth living until I met the Lord. So at 19 I met [accepted] Jesus, repenting of my sins, depending on Him and here I am still serving, loving and living for Him at 58 years old. I would never trade my life for anything else because I love the Lord so much and he has proven Himself faithful. He is so good, He is my healer, my financier, my Jehovah Jireh. About a year later I was filled with the Holy Ghost. Being filled with the Holy Ghost will give you power and strength to not only witness about Him, but live accordingly."
It doesn't matter your age, your name, your background, who you are, how much you have or haven't done, Jesus has bought and paid the price for you and there is not one thing you can do about that, He's already done it, the Bible says He can't even change His mind. What an awesome feeling/thought to know that He's done something so dramatic for you and I that He can't even take it back! You and I are His Creation and there is nothing He hasn't done or apparently won't do in order to save and/or deliver His Creation! Hopefully this testimony has/will help you; I wanted to do a Website to reach the world with the Good News that Jesus Saves, but also because Jesus is going to come soon and I do not want anyone to be lost! You see at one time I too was lost, although I had never lived a worldly life I had never received the Lord as my personal Savior, I was on my way to Hell. But one day while sitting in the back Pew of Victory Tabernacle I felt His loving forgiving presence, He made Himself real to me. The overwhelming love that I felt was never shown and/or given to me by anyone that I had ever encountered. This love, forgiveness, mercy, this grace given to me caused me to have an absolute surrender to Him. I want everyone to know what it feels like to have Jesus come into their lives, you just can?t thoroughly explain it. It?s great, beautiful and I would not trade my life or experience for the world. He is so good. Maybe you've backslid, my friend the Bible says that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. 2 Peter3:9 says; The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. This may be the last invitation you may see and/or hear, please don't go out into eternity without receiving Christ, Jesus paid it all. Won't you make Him your Lord?
