Knock knock! Who’s there? ‘The guy who makes amazing things happen in your life’ …Maureen’s submitted testimony

About four years before I knew Jesus‘ said Maureen,IMG_0014

‘I went through an extremely difficult phase in my life. I was losing weight and I couldn’t sleep. I felt desperate. I was struggling to cope with life, with all its snares and pitfalls. During that time I found myself calling on God to help me cope, even with the mundane things.

To my absolute amazement, lots of positive things began to happen. What I didn’t know was that the only Christian friend I had was regularly praying for me, with other Christians in her house group because I was going through a crisis.

One Sunday having been invited to their church, I reluctantly went along, just to please them really. And I was totally baffled because people were joyfully singing about their love for Jesus. 10516751_414744068683227_3670396689697461164_n

When to my knowledge they never met him. Anyway time passed, but I could never forget the whole experience at the church. I was convinced that God was real and that he hears us and takes action in our lives. (This was not a brief time of emotionalism)

My powerful encounter at church that day remained with me. In fact it was about four years after that out of the blue I too had a great desire to attend church.

I just wanted to thank God for all the many blessings we receive. It was not very long before I found out how much Jesus loves me. And soon I was able to sing of my love for him and I still can today’.

Now fourteen years later Maureen says that she’s ‘endeavouring with Jesus help to talk the talk and walk the walk’.IMG_7352

She shares her baptism scripture explaining that,

Jesus said,

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock

If anyone hears my voice and opens the door

I will come in and eat with him and he with me‘ Revelation 3:20

Jesus invites each one of us to open the door and let him come into our hearts and into our lives.
