WHEN THE VEIL IS TAKEN AWAY

IMG_0021I received an email a couple of weeks ago and I just wanted to share this because it gives us a picture of how awesomely God moves in the lives of individuals.

Paul says in 2 Cor. 3:16, “But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.”

It’s amazing when someone turns to God and what happens when He opens a heart… similar thing that happened to many of us…

“This year’s father’s day, I took my friend up on her invitation to go to your church…  I didn’t know it but after that Sunday and the Sunday that followed and the next and the next, I was never the same again. I am presently 24 years old. I went to a strict all-girl school yet rebelled against my parents, indulged in wild parties, …  The last time I read a Bible was when I was 7 years old (yes, 7 years old).

But I lost all of it in my adolescent years as curiosity got the better of me, along with the desire to conform to the sinful ways of the youth today. Though I remained fearful of God, I didn’t feel anything to Him. I had nothing but a “crisis faith” and “head faith”. I simply didn’t know Him. I saw Him as just a powerful stranger, clad in all holiness up above, in control of my life.

However, after those Sundays that I spent in your church, there is a great awakening in me. I am in touch again with the faith and innocence I once had when I was young. More importantly I have come to know him in a way I have never had before. I am so overwhelmed with this new recognition of Him that when I praise and worship Him my heart feels like exploding, unable to handle His greatness.”
