While being at The Rock Church the Lord has showed me that the last vestiges of fear which I had been grasping onto are holding me back from realising my full potential in Christ. I finally understand what has happened to me after Lord Jesus gave me an insight into His Love. Speaking from a personal perspective the old matt was cowardly, full of worry, he lacked confidence, and self esteem. He feared ridicule and confrontation, to the point where if he made a statement that afterwards someone disagreed with, he would change his opinion to bring himself in line with the other party! This is no way for anyone to live, and God saw some potential in me that He wanted for his kingdom so he sought me out. Before my salvation I would often seek out ways to alter my perception. This I usually achieved through consumption of drink and drugs. I did not like the person I was so I would seek an escape from that person as often as I could. I am now the complete opposite of the person I was, though to be honest I still enjoy a few beers every now and then, but the difference there is that it is just every now and then, whereas before my salvation I was drunk more than I was sober! When the Spirit is upon me the feeling is beyond comparison to any artificial high I used to partake in. When I am in touch with the spirit I experience such joy that I cannot help but laugh, I feel warm as if I were under a nice thick duvet on a cold winter’s night, my brain begins to fire on all cylinders instead of just one, and I become overwhelmed with excitement. I truly thank God for doing this change in me, and how being part of His family at The Rock Church has helped with this. Praise God!
