I was an atheist/agnostic until about a year and a half ago. At the age of 48, I heard His knocking and followed Him and it has been a fantastic journey so far and I have this feeling that is is only the beginning.
I think the most terrifying moment of my life was the moment before I acknowledged that there is a Creator. Terrifying because I had not acknowledged who He was for 48 years and if it were true...woah, what would that mean for me? It was the last thing in my life I wanted to be true.
But as I came to know Him and through the gift of Christ, I understood that He is all about love. And when I accepted Christ, He accepted me...just as I am, without any judgement but with a gentle, sweet love. Needless to say, it has totally changed my life.
