Hello All
« on: November 02, 2017, 05:13:59 PM »
Hello Everyone,

My name is Angel, and I live in the UK. My father was a muslim and my mother a Jehova Witness. My introduction into Christianity came to me when I was probably 8 ( I will like to say 6 for some reason), but I genuinely cannot recall. I remember watching Billy Graham on TV and he gave the call to Christ and for some reason I answered to it. Never understanding what it really meant to be a Christian (at various times I genuinely thought I did, but really in hindsight I didn't :-) ) I fell away several times.

Months ago, whilst in the gym a colleague who I used to chat with started talking to me about Christ and I rededicated myself to Him. However, I sense a difference that I cannot pinpoint. All I can say is but for the Grace of God and His overwhelming mercy on me and my soul, there is a certain kind of conviction, understanding and clarity that I never had before and knowing my weaknesses and for fear of falling back, I pray to remain close in my walk with God. This is ever so important to me.

I am blessed to have found a community of seeingly likeminded Christians.

I was just thinking about it this afternoon, and if I remember right, this woman wrote me an email when first contacting me that was so incredibly humble. I was looking over some Scripture this afternoon and I happened to be thinking about this, and I remembered that I hadn't said anything about it on the forum. It's the humility one sees in a heart that has godly sorrow in repentance. So, I just wanted you guys to know that her humility was very encouraging to me, and it humbled me as well. I'm not saying she's perfect, because I don't really know her much at all, but I enjoy her spirit of humility, and I hope she maintains that because it can be a great testimony to others, as it has already been to me.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. -2Ti 2:15
