When you "gave your life to the Lord," what did you actually give Him?
What did you bring to Him?
Did you bring Him a healthy person?
Did you come to Him whole?
Was your head held high?
Did you know who you were?
Did you come with skills, experience, knowledge, and ability?
Did you come with love, joy, and trust?
Who were you when you came to Jesus?

Because this is who I was

• • •

I died in 1984.
My life was over
All my dreams were gone
My hopes were dashed
I had lost everything
There was nothing more for me.

• • •

I had nowhere to go
Who I was, had ended.
When I came before the lord I came with nothing.
I had not one thing to offer God
I did not matter, I only made things worse.
A real screw-up.
I had ruined every relationship I had.
I was selfish and egotistic.
I ended up alone.

• • •

I wanted to die.
I believed that everyone would be better off
if I would just die and go away.
My life was gloomy.
Dark clouds followed me all the time.
Anger was my closest friend.
Hatred was what sustained me.
Self-doubt was all I knew.
I had lost my family.
MY wife.
My sons.
I was alone!

• • •

That is what I brought to Jesus.
A broken man.
Rejected and ruined.
Lost in my failures.
Wallowing in my pain.
Inundated in self-pity
Hating life.

• • •

And he accepted me as I was.
Without hesitation.
He forgave me.
Then he began the work.
To make me into
a New Creation in Jesus.
