After spending many years telling anyone that I could that they should never listen to a Preacher or attend Church, the Lord got ahold of my heart and extended His unending grace to me and my relationship with Him was fully restored. I was again attending and serving at my local church.

There was one problem though. Satan continually was bringing my past up in my mind. This caused me to second guess if and where I could serve. It even caused me to question my salvation. It was horrible. I was tormented with guilt. I had read that Saul who later became Paul had persecuted Christians prior to his conversion. I could certainly relate to this but it did not give me comfort or peace.

I had recently heard a sermon around Romans 8:28 that God can work well in all circumstances. While I pondered this, Satan still caused me to doubt and question. That is when the Lord showed me in a very personal way, that I can be used in His great service.

I was leading a Bible study when I received a call one evening. The man on the phone had attended Bible study for several months and he said that he appreciated how I had openly shared about my rebellion and the terrible things that I had done against the Lord and His church. He said that I was the only Christian that he had ever been around that he could relate to. That he had walked a similar path. After some time of talking, he prayed with me to receive Jesus Christ as his personal Savior!

I was in awe of how the Lord could use a mixed-up, messed-up, person like me to be a part of His work! At that moment, I realized that the Lord can use me! While Satan still tries to bring this up in my mind, I remind him that I am a child of the King!

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,

to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
