FOUR: Here comes the hard part. My testimony, my story is simply my coming to know and know of God and His Son basically from infancy. I’ve continually become discouraged and downright bored while doing so, but as written on my mirror in Gainesville, “God has declared that you are new” and that too is my story. Becoming new- daily; multiple times daily (& why it’s been necessary; can’t forget that!). five. gOD TOLD ME THAT hE’D TAKE ME AS FAR AS i’M WILLING TO GO, so I told Him lead the way. Make my day. My challenges to prove Himself are yes, feisty, but at least for now He humors me and it’s been incredible. I want to learn to be teachable, strong, ladylike. Not just gentle, but 1) ok with that and 2) able to put it on hold when harsh, loving words are more appropriate. It’s getting there.
