More Than We Can imagine

This is my testimony, this is my story of how I came to Christ. I truly came to him after being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, after seeing that I couldn’t figure out life on my own, after wandering through the world with the wrong perspective, after relying on fake and short-term happiness, after feeling incredibly alone and lost. I came to Him out of necessity, and have grown in Him in unimaginable ways (just like in Ephesians 3:20, “With God’s power working in us, God can do much, much more than anything we can ask or imagine.”).

I was raised in a Christian household my whole life. I had extraordinary examples of how to be a person who loves Jesus with their whole heart by my two loving parents, and I saw how incredibly the Lord works in Christians who are growing in their faith by my older siblings. I went to church every Sunday, and read my Bible. It seemed as though I was doing everything “right”, yet there was still a disconnect. I yearned to feel God’s love pulsing through me, I craved to feel the joy of the Lord in my heart. I had to get there on my own, though. I had to figure out my faith and my relationship with God by myself. I could look to others for guidance, but I had to find Jesus on my own, and that realization was the missing puzzle piece.

Once I was pursuing God on my own, and once I listened to God’s voice, I grew in monumental, and unimaginable, ways. As Matthew 17:20 says “…For truly I say to you, if you have faith of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible to for you.”

My faith is growing and growing just like a mustard tree, and I know that with Jesus by my side, nothing will be impossible for me.
