04 Mar Early In My Journey…
Last year, Jordan Fairback and Anne Marie Peterson invited me to attend the Christmas concert at Grace. With a good bit of nerves, I agreed to come. That night I felt like an intruder, somebody who didn’t get it. I wanted to know this God that this congregation was so in awe of.
I began to read the Bible, and bombard Jordan and Anne Marie with questions. I started listening to the sermons online. On January 20, I attended a service in person. Scott’s sermon resonated with me on a level I can’t describe. I heard the history of this church and testimony of members about how big a role Grace plays in their lives. I’ve never had the kind of relationship described with God, let alone a church. Hearing these people pour out their hearts in thanksgiving, I had to know why. I’ve been attending Grace regularly ever since. Every week, I walk away from the service in awe. I can’t believe how much I am learning and beginning to understand about God.
There’s no doubt in my mind that God knew I was ready to learn about him and he inserted the people and circumstances into my life that led me to Grace. I am still very early in my journey, but I can actually feel God’s presence in my life now, and it’s extremely humbling and inspiring. I can’t say thank you enough, and am looking forward to seeing what God has in store for my future.
