My name is Rylee and I love Jesus, my family and friends, and chickens. I have always known Jesus loves me, but it wasn't until I was five that I accepted Him into my heart. I don't remember much about that day, but I know I want to live my life for Him!
For the past couple of years my perspective o life has been changing. I've been learning that God can be my strength. I've been dealing with migraines and pain. Although my symptoms have gotten a little better, they're not going away. Sometimes it's easy for me to get discouraged, but it's a wonderful feeling to know I'm in God's arms, and someday I will live with him forever.
One of my favorite verses is Psalm 73:26 which says: "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever." Even at times when I don't feel strong, this verse reminds me that my strength comes from the Lord and that I can always count on Him.
I didn't know what to write for my testimony because I can't remember a time where our family didn't go to church. I've heard lots of Bible stories and I can't remember a time that I didn't love Jesus.
Eve though I loved Jesus, I didn't accept him into my heart until I was six. I got in big trouble for fighting with my sister. I did something bad and my heart felt bad. Even though I had been forgiven by my mom and sister I knew that what I did would've made Jesus sad. I asked my mom to help me to pray and I felt really happy afterwards.
After I prayed and accepted Jesus in my heart, I remember that I started having really bad dreams. I was scared of the night, and was afraid to go to sleep. I cried when it was bedtime. I finally told my mommy about the bad dreams. We prayed together for the evil dreams to stop and for the enemy to leave me alone. We prayed that my dreams would come from God and that he'd send his angels to protect me. I pray this every night. Now I'm not afraid of the dark or to dream anymore because God protects me. I also know that sometimes I do bad things, but God is good and forgives me if I ask. God is a good father!
My name is Forest and I like guns, Legos, and being outside. I don't remember much about the day I accepted Jesus in my life, but I know that he forgave me and loves me. God has been teaching me about being brave and trusting Him. A verse I like is Joshua 1:9
"Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." I know with all the fires and the crazy stuff happening in the world that God is with me, and I can be brave because I have Him inside me!
