Salvation Are You or Not ... Saved?

Salvation I know is a topic not many want to talk about but it is something to think about.

First of all I want to talk about my own salvation my thought and beliefs.
I grew up going to church and I believed in Jesus and God and so I thought I was saved.
My parents divorced when I was real young and I was a real wild child and had some terrible things happen to me and in order to survive I built a wall around my heart and put it all deep in my mind so I wouldn't think about them.

I grew up in a time when it was hellfire and brimstone preaching with a lot of yelling but they did not tell you how to get saved.

It started in March almost two years ago when my mother passed away and I was listening to the preacher speak and I felt this desire that I should start going to church.

Any way I didn't do anything about it but I just felt there was something missing inside, like a hole that my family although I loved them couldn't fill.

Sept 4 2013 is the day that I got saved.

My husband and I had gone to the funeral of our son in laws dad.
The pastor at the gravesite said that if you did not know where or when you was saved or felt a change in your way of thinking that you was not saved.

He made me realize I was not saved.

My husband and I got in the truck to head to the church where they was serving food at. Anyway we knew our son in laws dad but was not real close to him.

I started crying and I felt this big knot in my chest and I couldn't figure out what was going on.
It was like the Lord had opened up all my wounds and cauterized them. I couldn't take the pain anymore and I just asked for help That I give up and couldn't run anymore.

By the time we got to the church I was healed and such peace in my soul. I knew the Lord had come in and filled that missing hole in my soul.

Since then we have been going to church. I got baptized.

I know the Lord loves me even if no one else did and I'm ok with that.

Everyone's salvation is different but you have ask for him to forgive you and let him in.

Is he knocking on your door? Just let him in.
