Fort Worth, TX
This cross was given to me as a gift by a lady I met at the AACC World Conference in Nashville in November 2011. I was going through a horrid time of severe depression and spiritual warfare. I struggled every day with obsessive thoughts particular about my salvation. There were times where I felt that I was a hopeless case and that I was destined for Hell. This period lasted around two years for me but Jesus delivered me from it all and has brought me into a love relationship with Him. As I look back I see how He used the darkest period in my life to bring me to the end of myself and to a faith in Him that I have never before experienced. I would not trade that time for anything in the world because it brought me to my Savior and Lord. Now, regardless of my moods, I truly have a peace that surpasses all understanding and a real relationship with the God of the universe. The Lord hears the prayers of His people and “works everything for good for those who love Him and a
re called according to His purpose” Romans 8:28.
