Hi! Welcome back! In this post, I just want to share a little bit about myself so that you don’t feel like you’re looking into the life of a total stranger. Okay, here goes…
Hello, my name is Maddie, and I am currently 16 years old. I’ll turn 17 August 22. My favorite color is purple and I am terrified of spiders.
Okay, now that you know me, I would like to share my testimony!
Okay, so when I was about four or five years old I overheard my mom talking to a friend on the phone about accepting Christ. I sat up and said, “I did that!” she then asked me to tell her what I had said when I prayed. So, I told her that I just asked Jesus to please come live in my heart forever and ever! My mom was so happy for me, and I was happy too.
*DISCLAIMER* I was like, five. So, I believed in all of the Bible stories I learned at church and I believed that a man died on the cross to save my soul, However, I did NOT understand the value Of Jesus’s sacrifice.
I have been through doubts and struggles just like many other people have and many more will, but at this point in my life, I am striving to be a disciple who makes disciples. It brings me joy to teach the little kids in Sunday school, help during VBS, and I love to volunteer with my church in any way I can.
So I used to always feel like my testimony was boring. It wasn’t cool, I wasn’t a recovered drug addict or cancer survivor I just accepted Christ without much trouble. It wasn’t too long ago, though, that I heard someone say to me;
“If you’re testimony is “uneventful” that is the power of Gods mercy and love right there! The awesomeness is that you didn’t have to go through trials and hardships, and that’s how God decided to adopt you into his family. Everyone’s story is different, but they all end the same.”
So this brought me a lot of encouragement and I just wanted to share it with anyone who may have ever felt that their testimony was “boring”.
So there’s my testimony, well, the short version. and now, onto my hopes and dreams.
NO PRESSURE TO READ THIS FEEL FREE TO SKIP I UNDERSTAND AND ITS OKAY…
So, in my last post, I mentioned that it is one of my dreams to become a best selling author. If that doesn’t work out I’m hoping to be a wedding/event coordinator! I currently work at a wedding venue and I’m (slowly but surely) learning the ropes of coordinating! And if that falls through I’m going to be either a stunt double in Hollywood or a marine biologist. gotta think realistically, ya know.
Alright! so now you know a bit about me! I’m a Christian, I want to write professionally, and I have a lot of backup plans! thank you so much for reading this, please follow my page and leave a comment about what you think! also feel free to email me anytime.
And never forget to Live Differently.
