Not Ashamed

Listening to that song brought me back to this scripture:

That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day. - 2 Tim 1:12

At the age of 16, God used this simple Bible verse to change my life. The words NOT ASHAMED seemed to jump off the page and bash me in the face. Somehow deep within there was still an embarrassment about my faith that kept me penned in. Following God but hoping no one noticed too much. Mainly because I felt totally inadequate to be a follower of Jesus and always inferior to everyone else around.

That moment it was forever settled in my heart not because of me but because I knew I could trust God with my life.

That was the moment that I decided make the Gospel & Jesus the total centre of my life no matter what.
