The Lord recently brought two souls my way for bible study. I pray I can honor Him in teaching them the true character of Christ that they too may learn to love and trust Him.
God Around Town is the answer to a question that kept coming to mind since choosing in May 2006 to stop trying to run my life by my brain and momentary thoughts, instead letting the Lord be my guide. A friends search for God stirred my old thoughts and encouraged me to entertain the idea maybe God could actually love me and maybe I should give Him a chance in my life. That was a pivotal point in my Christian testimony. The reawakened idea God could maybe really love me, coupled with my flipping through channels that day in 2006 and stopping for the first time on Christian TV were the final sparks needed in my life to bring me to the realization that I was living a life only partly alive and through a relationship with Jesus I\'d get the missing pieces for a fully plugged in, alive, heart and life. As I watched many interviews, speakers and shows over the last few years I would tell people in my life of events coming up in the area or around the nation, facts about our country\'s beginnings and such. I found many of them, though Bible believing and church going people, didn\'t know of these things. I also began realizing though the two Christian TV stations in my area reached many believers and encouraged non believers to accept Jesus, those already attending churches may not be tuning in and learning what I was. These stations air a wide variety of valuable information and local, national and world peoples doing work for the entire body of Christ, as well as non believers. Then I began learning from my church going friends, as well as from churches I attended as I was seeking a church for myself, of many great works both local and far reaching that the churches were involved in as well, but again I wondered how could more people know of these things and help them succeed, maybe even exceed their goals of helping others? In May of 2008, God woke me one night with the answer to my question - How can I be a part of helping Christians know more of what is going on around them and how they can get involved in what is going on? God gave me the idea for the website God Around Town and showed me so much growth and good that could come from it for us individually and for the whole body of Christ. He intends the best for us and anticipates our best for Him. This last year has been a real testimony of His faithfulness and guidance and bringing me to the very edge of myself, only to show me there was more to me then I thought. I know His hand is always guiding me.
