My Testimony: (We encourage members to share briefly about how their faith in Christ has impacted their lives.)
I'm into music ministry and I want to use it to win souls for Christ. Well, I will say that for me knowing Christ and surrendering my life to Him is simply the best thing that has happened and still happening to me. All I can say now is, amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a man like me. I once was lost but now I'm found. Was blind, but now I can see.
Actually when I was in the world I was just a bundle of confusion. Looking back at my life, there's nothing I can point at as something I've achieved; There's nothing really to be proud of. I was really just a bundle of confusion. I didn't make a headway. I found myself not progressing in life because I couldn't make up my mind where I belonged. My life was full of struggle. I didn't have any peace. I was just chasing shadows, running hecter-skelter, from pillar to post, struggling and sweating. I worked to no head and strove to no end. Even though I did go to church and sing in choir. In fact I was doing all that because I love them but not for God.
I thought I could find peace and pleasure in doing my own things and living on the fast lane, but it was just frustration and headaches, pains and aches all the way. In fact, it was a worthless and meaningless life. The wisdom I was using was entirely mine. I grouped in the dark, until God in His infinite mercy decided to change everything by opening the eyes of my understanding to the futility of my existence. I gave my life to him, and nothing has been the same since then. Ever since I answered his call, there has been a terrific transformation in my life.
I gave up my old ways and many old friends who could not come to terms with my new life. In short, I cut off every useless branch, every tree that was not bearing fruit in my life. Right now, I'm at peace with my God, my family and everyone else around me. My life is very calm, there is no turbulence. I have a good relationship with myself and I feel really blessed.
But like any drastic change, it came with its downside. I lost old friends, many good friends really, but I think I lost them to make new friends. Many of my old friends do not believe that Stanley they once knew and kept company with can ever preach the gospel. They are still not sure of what is going on or what to believe. I still love them, and I still reach out to them.
