Last night was the best service of my life, when I publicly dedicated myself to Jesus Christ; and I was particularly honoured that so many friends and family could share my special service with me. During the service my wonderful godfather read out the testimony I had written:
Living Life in all its Fullness
With Jesus as my saviour, companion and friend, I have lived my hours here with happiness in my spirit and content calm in my soul. Knowing He is with me; cradling me in pain, sheltering me from darkness and beckoning me forward, has given me the strength and serenity to look life in the eye and smile. Like the constancy of the second hand of a clock, Jesus inhabits the quaver beats of my life; and as that beat slows, I look forward with excited anticipation to the day I will see Jesus; and live together with Him in His garden forever. In the meantime, I cleave to Jesus: my faith and my life.
The Author of Life
Beauty breathing through my soul,
Cradling arms tending my frail frame,
Sheltering rock whilst life’s storms rage,
Dancing with quaver beats of joy,
Anticipating Love’s beckon,
Home in the garden forever.
