As I sit here writing my story down, I tried out my radio to see if it would work and sure enough, it does! I get horrible reception because my radio is so old, so I have to drape my headphones cord through the bed springs in the bunk above me. But I am getting some reception. And the first song that comes on is by Jeremy Camp – “We have overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony… because He has overcome.”
How amazing that He gives me this Word as I am writing my testimony down. YES GOD!
And now the song is “What can wash away my sins… nothing but the Blood of Jesus.”
And I get overcome with emotion because my story is nothing without the Blood of Jesus! I am stuck in my sins – filthy as a rag – without His forgiveness through His blood! If I wasn’t forgiven – I would still be who I was 4 years ago – lost – a liar, cheater, whoremonger, adulterer, idolater and an abuser of the freewill God gave me.
But without this freewill – I would not have the strength that I have gained because of what came of my bad choices. I wouldn’t be able to say “Look where Jesus has brought me – look what He’s done for me! He’ll do it for you too!”
“Oh, precious is the flow that makes me white as snow…”
Thank you Jesus for throwing my sins in the sea of forgetfulness and washing me white as snow!
