My Conversion Story

One of my friends encouraged me to SHARE my conversion STORY.

MY CONVERSION STORY 🙌

My conversion story is a little bit different, but unique and special to me!

 What is a conversion story? It’s your coming to God STORY- your TESTIMONY. How God got ahold of you and how he has found you. How he rescued, and set you free. 

Testimony - Your written/spoken legal binding contract
" They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death." 
Revelations 12:11
NIV BIBLE

I wasn’t in church, or at the pulpit, confessing my sins, I was in the car.  I was a “Christian” my whole life, but didn’t truly convert until that moment. 

 I was driving on a highway on my way to Jacksonville, FL when the Holy Spirit touched my heart, and placed a childhood song in my spirit.

It went like this

Прости меня, Боже, прости, я молю,
Прости, что так поздно к Тебе прихожу,
Прости, что я раньше Тебя не познал
И друга иного тогда я избрал.

Closest English Translation

Forgive me, God, forgive me, I pray.
Forgive me, for I’m coming to you, a little too late.
Forgive, that I didn’t know, or gotten to know you
And chosen a friend of the world.

Tears began to flow from my eyes, I finally understood, and my stony heart became soft.  

God forgive me, for not seeking you, forgive me for running from you, that it took me this long, to finally realize I belong to you.  Forgive me father for I have sinned! 

And at that moment I felt as if God was saying, welcome home my daughter! I have been looking for you. 

I promise you, it sounds better, and more personal in RUSSIAN. I was balling, and laughing, and singing like it was no body’s business.  That is the language that God spoke to me, my native tongue. I have not been the same since!

I felt like he was speaking directly to me, that he wrote this song for me, and looking back at that moment every lyric spoken, is exactly where I am . I have given him my heart, my life, everything I have belongs to him.  

As I listened to further lyrics,  tears could not stop flowing, every lyric SPOKE directly to my heart! I repented of my sins, and gave my life to Christ. Right there in a car, I felt brand new, and my burdens were lifted. I felt like I was washed and made new, cleansed of my sins, that were purple as scarlet, made whiter than snow.

What is your Conversion Story?

 

Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18 NIV
