Give Me One More Chance

Give Me One More Chance

As a child, I was abused by a leader of the church. It affected me as I grew up and in my decision-making as an adult.

My life was a very dark and lonely life. I suffered major depression. I felt lonely and discouraged. My life was deteriorating. I was a person walking around with a broken heart, not knowing my purpose in life, and I didn’t understand why God had allowed me so much pain. I felt lost.

 

One night I was crying and crying; I didn’t understand my purpose in life. I was walking around with so much pain that I could no longer handle it. So I decided that I would kill myself. “Why live like this? Might as well just die and sleep in peace.” These were the thoughts that governed me. I went to the kitchen and grabbed a knife, planning to cut and stab myself so I could bleed to death. I was tired and just wanted to just end it … when a small voice told me, “Stop.”

At first, I didn’t know where this was coming from. Again the small voice said, “Stop.” “But it went further, “Give me one more chance.” I knew at that instance it was God. I put the knife down and fell asleep crying. The next Saturday, we were to visit Pastor Doug’s church in Sacramento. While there, I came across some old-time friends. They invited me to attend a teen prayer conference that they were sponsoring. Ever since, the Lord has been gradually working in me.

Every day, I fall more and more in love with Him. I now have peace. Amazing Facts has helped me to understand the Bible and understand prophecy, and now I want to learn more. Their podcasts have helped me in my spiritual journey. I even studied at the Amazing Facts Center of Evangelism!

Today, I’m at the best time of my life. I want to work for the Lord, to give my all to Him, and to become a Bible worker. I want to give my life to the work and finish it.

Many people are concerned about what the future holds. We can find only one source of prophecy that is sure and it is found in the Bible. Daniel 2 is an example of how we can trust the accuracy of Scripture.

During the civil war, in the most excruciating circumstances, a Jewish physician operates on a 17 year old drummer boy. Disregarding the untempered pain of surgery, the boy thinks only of the fact that his physician doesn't know Jesus, and pleads with the man to accept Him as his Messiah. To the boy's dying breath he said nothing about his pain, only of his desire for the doctor's salvation. This moving story tells of the journey that a Jewish physician took to get to know Jesus, and withstand the social and familial pressures to reject his new-found Messiah.

Everlasting Gospel
The book of Ruth is the story of redemption. It begins with wandering and poverty and ends with rest and exalting. Ruth and Boaz were Jesus' ancestors. The future of the world was altered by the love story in the barley field..
The Book of James
"Why is humility so important in the Christian life? That is, in light of the Cross and what happened there, how dare any of us ever assume an attitude of arrogance or self-importance, especially when it comes to spiritual matters?"
Everlasting Gospel
This study of Genesis focuses on the creation of Sabbath and its purpose.
