Leave the Past Behind posted by John Sorensen on Jan 10, 2019
Have you heard the phrase, ‘new year, new you?’ I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, for Share Life Today. Even with good intentions, it can be a struggle to leave the past in the past. Annie grew up with less than favorable circumstances. Her siblings were in and out of prison, her dad was an alcoholic – it wasn’t a pretty sight. But while two of her brothers were in two separate prisons, they were both saved and wrote home to Annie’s mother about their faith in Jesus! This inspired Annie to come to know the Lord. However, the next twenty years were filled with struggle, heartbreak and separation for her. But God didn’t let her stay there! Her sister was a real friend to her and brought her back to Christ! From then on, the Lord turned her separation into reconciliation, heartbreak to hope and brokenness to wholeness! She says that it’s true – God really does want to work everything out for the good of those who love Him! So, don’t let your past drag you down – commit to sharing with your friends about new life in Jesus! Visit ShareLife.Today.
