Today marks the day that I surrendered my life to Christ. On March 15, 1989, at Second Baptist Church in Warner Robins, GA, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I can remember the day and the moment just like it was yesterday. There’s no doubt about it, that day changed my direction in this life and for all eternity!
Something else I remember vividly is a conversation I had with my mom. It was March 15th, about 10 or 11 years ago and I walked into the kitchen to remind my mom that it was my “birthday.” She looked at me and said, “I know honey, how much have you grown since last year?” I looked at her and made some silly joke like, “about an inch or two” and turned and walked away.
This day is a time for me to take spiritual stock of my life. I’m older physically with each year that goes by, but I also age in my relationship to Christ. As I’m aging, I hope that I’m also maturing. This is the mark of a true disciple!
How much have you grown since last year?
Happy Birthday Babe! I didn’t even make you a cake. I didn’t know you 19 years ago, but I know that the Lord is growing and teaching you more every year. I love watching HIm work in your life.
