What Jesus Has Done For Me.
(A personal testimony)
by Halley Low

Jesus has done for me things that I could never do for myself. First of all, He died for me so that I could have eternal life and He called me to Himself offering me the gift of faith that secured my salvation. Even when I turned away from Him to follow my wants in my way He continued to stay by me, refusing to abandon me no matter how hard or how fast I ran in the opposite direction, and He continued to call me home, relentlessly, until I finally came to my senses and realized that He alone could give me what I really needed. He simply never gave up on me, as it is written in the psalms “the Lord is close to the brokenhearted and those who are crushed in spirit he saves” and also “that when your father and mother forsake you, the Lord will never forsake you”, that’s how awesome and loving a God He is indeed. What has He done for me? He has loved me through thick and thin, He has loved me when I could not love myself, and He has taught me that no matter what I may think or feel and no matter what people may say or how badly they may treat me, He loves me, and I am to find my worth in Him and not in my feelings and not in the opinions of others and not in the terms of the world. He has shown me that no thing and no one, including myself, can ever separate me from His love. So with my whole heart and my whole soul I thank Him for the wonder of His presence in my life and for the powerful transforming gift of His Holy Spirit; and I pray that if you do not already hold Him above all things in your heart, that this day you will come to know that you too are His beloved. Amen.
