    I really wanted to share my testimony so ...

    I would just like to say i believe i fell into becoming a lukewarm christian. I do began to fear the words depart from me i never knew you. I want to become closer to god not just for a spot in heaven but to have the lord in my heart. I dont think im saying the right things in this testimony the way i wanted to but i'll like to say i want to read the word of god , i want to remove myself from this evil world mentally. I ask for forgiveness for all the sins i have committed and i hope and believe god can forgive you if you are struggling with a sin. I began my journey in the beginning of 2023 to read the whole bible but i was stopping myself which i didn't know why. There was a point where i wasn't praying and then one day i had got on my knee's. I begin to cry and ask for forgiveness and asked the lord to allow me to seek him. I have done this multiple time due to me falling into a lukewarm stage but i decided to restart reading the bible and im not going to plan out seeking the word of god but truly following the lord from my heart. Im starting this journey to find the word of god , stop listening to secular music , remove lust and masturbation from my mind , and share the word of god

    Monet333,

    Read the Bible. Read the Bible. Read the Bible.

    Be mindful of the fact that when you do this you are sitting at the feet of Almighty God Himself. And as you read, this is God speaking directly to you.

    Read the Whole Bible, Old Testament and New Testament BOTH. Some would have you believe that we don't need to pay much attention to the Old Testament; nothing could be further from the truth. 2 Timothy 3:16 ALL SCRIPTURE is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    Notice God is saying ALL SCRIPTURE. Not just the New Testament or some particular part of the Bible.

    Pray God as you read that He might open your understanding; and that He might work in your heart "to will and to do of His good pleasure" as He would give you understanding. Philippians 2:13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

    May the LORD richly bless you.

    Monet333 , thankyou so much ! Your testimony was awesome and reminded me somewhat of myself many years ago . I had and still have , a lot of work to do on myself :) . It's a lifelong commitment and the very best place to start is the Bible , it is the Word of , the Only Great God Almighty , the Creator and Sustainer of all life , from everlasting to everlasting , the Holy One Of Israel . You must try to forget everything that you have ever heard about Him from people , people get things wrong , the Bible will steer you right . I started at Genesis and read through to Revelation and I did this many many times . Don't try to understand everything straight away because you won't , don't try to remember everything straight away because you won't . You will hopefully be reading this book every day for the rest of your life , get into the habit , pick a time of day when you know you will have a bit of peace and quiet and solitude and even if you only read one chapter a day that's ok . I have to say that the first few years of reading , I literally devoured it and read it about five times a year for about five years ! Don't expect to ever be sinless because you never will be that , only Christ accomplished that . Take little steps every day . You will slowly learn the things that you need to change , no more reading your horoscope in magazines :) , stop judging others so quickly , try to keep your temper inside , not too much alcohol , not too much make up and jewellery , maybe that skirt is a bit short ? These things will come to you as you let the Word of God sink down through your ears and mind and take lodge in your heart . It's a lifelong journey and you are taking the best steps ever ! Towards your God and His Son and if you keep going , you will soon have an idea about how much They care for and love you and all the ways that they have been showing you that love that you didn't even realise :) . God lives and God loves , open your eyes and heart . Stay with us !

    You are truly the blessing i needed . I felt such a warm feeling when you uplift me with the holy spirit just with your words. I am balling out tears right now and i'll keep you in my prayers. I love that you accepted my testimony with love and blessings and i'll do the same. I know i need to pray and not just read the bible only when i want it but because i need to see the word of god. Idon't think you understand what you have done for me but you truly lifted me out of a dark place and so did the love of god . May god continue to bless you.

    Monet333 God has touched your heart , never forget how that made you feel , remember it forever , the memory of it will bless you through out your life . We can easily get caught up in this world and forget even the awesome things that have affected us . Remember His connection to you today , you felt Him today didn't you ? I pray that you will always keep your heart open to recieve His message of love for you . He will never leave you .
