My Testimony

I cannot remember a time when I did not know Jesus. But, I do remember when I was about seven yeas old I started going to Bible Camp. I knew at that time I accepted the Lord into my heart and wanted to follow Him all the days of my life. I remember when I was very young I tried to think about Jesus at least once a day.
High School was a rough period for me. There was only one other believer that I knew in my class. I had other friends, but only one friend that I could talk with about issues. At the end of high school I decided to work at the Bible Camp that I went to every summer of my life. Being at camp truly helped me to figure out what I really believed. It was when I was working at camp that God told me that He wanted me to be a "counselor." I thought He wanted me to be a camp counselor. But, I was never hired as a camp counselor. I started to think that a counselor was what "I" wanted to be. However, I never forgot what the Lord told me.
When I went to college I grew greatly in my relationship with Christ. I learned to depend on Him with everything in my life. Through the help of professors and spiritual retreats I found a peace of God that I could not understand, but simply experience. All of the hurt and anger from the abuse of my family disappeared. When I told my parents that I was majoring in Youth Ministry they got upset with me. They wanted me to become a nurse or a teacher. They told me, "You will never make any money being a youth pastor."
Well, I became a youth minister. I was the director of youth ministries as a couple of churches, but never found peace about my placement. I kept searching for where the Lord wanted me to go. I became a nurse aide. I worked in geriatrics and really took a liking to nursing. I decided to go to school to become an RN. I applied and surprisingly got into school. One day before the classes started, I had a sick feeling in my stomach and I felt uneasy about going to school and I decided to quit. I started to wonder where the Lord was leading me, but I knew it was not in nursing.
After working in nursing for so long, I had a longing to work with young people again. I am presently working at the Children’s Home of Reading. I also decided to volunteer with the youth group at my church. I began to have visions from the Lord. The Lord gave me glimpses of my future. I know that now is the time to pursue that vision.
God’s vision for me is building bridges between parents and teens. The vision of ministering to them in a counseling capacity is where I feel the Lord wants me to be. The vision goes deeper and a program is now starting with me being part of the process. I am so excited about the future. I believe that going back to school will equip me for the future.
This is where my story is for now. I pray that I have more exciting things to add to this wonderful story that God has given me to tell.
