After some foot-dragging, I’ve added a new page… “How I Came To Christ”. (See 3rd tab at the top of the blog.) I’m glad I wrote it. In 1 Peter Chapter 3, verse 15: “…but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence…” I always thought this meant that I was to be able to quote verses from the Bible proving the reason for my hope and faith in Christ. I got kinda worried about that, because I thought, “What if I can’t think of the entire verse? What if stumble and mumble and just generally make a fool of myself when someone asks me why I believe in Christ?” “What if I start quoting the words to a song instead of a verse? …what a friend we have in Jesus…” Then I had the thought, I could tell my story! I know that! I won’t get that wrong! And no one can refute it. It’s the truth. It’s my truth of why and how Jesus is my Savior. My story is an account of the hope in me! (In the meantime, back to the Bible…) ;D
The above photo was taken just a block from my house. This is called the Cowboy Trail, formerly a train track–a “Rails To Trails” thing. Yes, I know a train is on a track there, but that track was added after the other track was taken out… I know, I know.
BTW… gosh, so many folks are stopping by here, I really appreciate it and it is such a fun learning experience. Thanks!
