Personal Salvation Testimony and Guest Appearance on Alexis Goring's Blog

Hi, all! I wanted to invite you to catch a blog post where I share my first love-encounter with Jesus. The post is on Alexis Goring's blog, but I've included an excerpt here:

Love Casts Out Fear
A Falling in Love with Jesus story written by Natalie Monk

My first love encounter with Jesus was a little scary.

Not what you expected to hear, right?

Eight years old, leaving a revival meeting service, I’d never had any dealings with the Supernatural, so when I grew overwhelmed with thoughts of God and where I stood with Him, fear swamped me. Nothing major had ever disturbed my “normal.”

My whole life I had heard the message of Christ, how He loved the people of the world so much He died on the cross for our sins and rose from the grave three days later. But things of God were never personal to me.

Why was I so troubled now?

Something was horribly wrong. With me. With my relationship to God...

  1. I feel like such a bad friend! I've been horrible at keeping up with blogs, but I wanted to stop by and check yours out. :0)

    LOVE your testimony, Natalie. As someone who wasted a lot of time thinking she was saved as a young girl, I'm very sensitive to this kind of testimony. It's so important not to try to talk kids into doing something they aren't spiritually ready for. Like I heard a preacher say, "don't pick fruit when it's green."
    SO happy you had amazing parents to guide you and let you realize the Truth!!!
