True Story
“I spent my early adult life searching for a purpose, and then God showed me His purpose for my life. I am searching no more."

Terry - Accountant - FL

I was a good person; I worked hard, went to school and got good grades. I didn’t do drugs or drink, but I knew deep down that there was more to life than what I was living.
I was spending my early adult life searching for a purpose, and I continued that search through college. I became involved in sports, and when that didn’t satisfy me, I focused more on my academics. After not finding the purpose in those two areas, I decided to put the search on hold and just have a good time partying with my friends. I soon found out that living for the weekend wasn’t going to give me what I was looking for either. Then one Sunday, my best friend and I decided to go to church. I thought maybe God might have a purpose for my life. Amazingly, the pastor spoke in a way as if he knew me. I was so curious after that Sunday that I continued to attend church every time the doors were open.
One Sunday, after the service, a deacon handed me a booklet that explained God’s love and plan for me. I realized that I wasn’t following God’s plan because I was sinful and separated from Him. Now, I knew that God loved me and sent His son to die on the cross for me, and I needed to turn my life over to Him. It became clear that if I surrendered my life to the Lord, I would have a purpose.
This was great news, but it was too hard for me to accept because I was ashamed of how I lived. I decided to try to live a sinless life without God in control, but in no time I found myself sinning more than ever. It was at that time in my life when I finally decided that I needed God to change me. So right there on the floor of my bedroom, I asked Jesus to come into my life and make me the man He wants me to be.
Finally, I found the purpose I had been searching for. God showed me His purpose to know Him, enjoy Him and to help others come to know Him. My search was over.
