 Hey I'm new

Hello I'm Josh Wise. I just signed on or registered or whatever. I really like the website. My dad showed it to me. I've been hooked ever since. A brief history of me. I was raised in a good solid christian home. Good parents. They're not perfect but I couldn't have asked for better. So anyway I grew up in church doing the whole sunday school VBS thing. I knew all the answers. It was great. Until my Sophmore year in high school. I got hooked into online porn. I was able to live the lie for 2 years or so. I was perfect. I had everyone fooled. No one knew. Not my parents anybody. Well the summer before my Sr. year in highschool God got ahold of me. I got on my face and repented. I couldn't keep it up anymore. I got staight with my parents, with my friends, with just about everybody. Since then God's called me to be a youth pastor. I'm going to college to get a degree in religion and philosophy. So that a brief history of me. Well catch you all later. One Love.

welcome to S.I

I'm fairly new as well and have found S.I to be a great source of encouragement and an awsome resource.

 Re: Hey I'm new

Hi Josh...

Welcome to SermonIndex! I was also saved during the summer while in high school. I was quite agnostic before meeting the Lord. I was a "nice guy" -- with good grades, alot of friends, popularity, and a whole future to look forward to. I went to Church (mostly because my parents forced me), but everyone just assumed I was a Christian. But I did not know God. Eventually, my belief that God existed began to outweigh my unbelief.

Late one night while I was at a Christian summer camp, I walked out in the field -- knowing that I needed to know God. I could feel the emptiness of my soul from living without knowing the Lord. The weight of my condition seemed to overwhelm me. In my heart of hearts, I could hear the Lord speak to me, "You don't [u]know[/u] me. Come to me...and I will give you rest." That night, while standing alone in a field, I told the Lord, "[i]God, I will give up all that I am, and all that I will ever be, if I can just know you, and be your friend[/i]." Immediately, I felt the Lord wrap around my heart! It was the most awesome night of my life! I remember laying in my bunk later that night thinking that I didn't care if I lived or died because I now knew the Lord!

Thank you for sharing. May you be both encouraged and challenged by your time here!

:-)

Many thanks Josh for sharing your testimony. It is very precious and encouraging to see what the Lord can do to bring a person into authentic faith. I look forward to dialoguing with you in future threads. Clearly, you have much to offer.


Chris, I'm so thrilled that you added your testimony here. Just an hour ago I broused through your site looking to learn more about you - and here it is! Why not put your testimony on your site - as you just shared here.

What a blessing it is to see you young men here on SI sharing your spirtual journey and insights.

Diane
