My Story

Heather’s Story

heatherbroomI had been brought up to go to Sunday School and had always gone to church and sung in the choir. I knew all about Jesus, but didn’t know him personally in my life.

I always thought that you were automatically a Christian if you went to church and tried to live a good life. However I attended a meeting where I heard all about the need for salvation and was given an invitation to invite Jesus into my life. I wanted all that God was offering me – a new life! The Bible describes this as being born again.

Knowing Jesus (who is God) has made a huge difference in my life. I know now that He is with me at all times by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is with me in good times and in bad times. He is faithful even when I may not be faithful. The Bible has become for me a living book where I can hear God speaking to me.

One of my favourite hymns is Great is Thy Faithfulness. In it we remember and give thanks that God never lets us down:

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided,
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
