Tammy’s Testimony

I grew up in a Christian home.  My parents and family were very loving. I didn’t always feel it or realize it, especially in my later years.  I felt a lot of resentment towards my dad.  That caused me to think of God in the same way.  I disobeyed and rebelled,  by turning to relationships with other men instead of God. I remember asking Jesus into my heart at the age of 9.  I was at Timberlake Ranch Camp near Central City.  I’ve also been baptized before.  I did things in my life thinking I was following the Lord. The problem I found is this: my whole life I would fall away from the Lord way too easily.  I would do good for awhile, then in a blink of an eye, I would be back to doing the worldly things.  I lost the trust of my family and many others around me. It wasn’t until the sixth of July that I realized my life was just an act.  I was talking the talk but not walking the walk.  I went thru the motions of baptism, becoming a member of a church, and proclaiming to being a Christian.  That all changed when the Holy Spirit worked in my heart.  I wanted my relationship with God to be real.  NOW IT IS!  I feel bad about deceiving and hurting so many people.  I know the Lord has forgiven me and I pray everyone else will be able to do the same.  I now can say with confidence that I am a Child of the King. I am at the mission going thru the New Life Program.  I’m really trying to follow the Lord’s lead for my life.  I have a long way to go yet, but I do know that the Lord will be here to help me make it thru.  I also know that I can do it with help from family and wonderful friends like you. Thank you so much for your prayers and being here for me. Tammy Thompson
