My name is Lorrie... and I love the Lord Jesus with everything I am.
I guess I should start at the beginning, if I can figure out where that is.
I think the fact that I was raised by an LDS father and a Methodist mother
was the beginning of the confusion about the truth for me.
accepted Christ as my Savior
at the age of 16, confused still, then
joined the mormon church the same year. I married a mormon man who did not
share my beliefs, when I was just 19. We struggled desperately to get
along, but it never worked out for us. After four and a half years of marriage,
three children and mental, physical and emotional abuse... I knew I had to
get out of there.
There was one thing that I praised God for in all of it.. His promise that
He would never leave us or forsake us. He did not leave me. I turned
to an Assembly of God Pastor and started to get my life right. I renewed
my confession that Jesus Christ is Lord and died on the cross for my sins.
I started reading my Bible and praying to Jehovah God! I found strength
like I had not ever felt before rise up inside me. I was renewed.
But, the old ways were not through with me. I struggled for years to
find who I was in the Lord Jesus Christ.
My family and I moved back to Utah recently and I know the Lord has a work
here for me. I love the people here and will walk through whatever
doors God opens for me. I praise my Jesus, that He loved me enough
to keep holding onto me, even when I was drowning myself. He is a wonderful
Lord and a great Friend. I also praise the Lord for my mother, who never
gave up praying for me and my siblings to be saved. Hallalujah
I hope that tells you a little about who I am and what I believe. I
am active in my church here in Utah and love to sing for the Lord.
Nice to meet you all
