Personal history  ..... New life But that night, 19th November, 1977, changed my life forever. I’d made a mess of my life but it seemed I was being offered a new beginning. Impossible! - but I’d give everything for a second chance. If God was big enough to change my life, He was welcome to it! Several things became vividly clear,  I needed to: I didn’t expect that experience on that cold November night to be life-transforming, but it was.  I felt clean.  My anger, bitter disappointment and hardened disillusionment started to melt, and gradually I became to know God’s love and power in my life. For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son that whoever believes in him  shall not perish but have eternal life  John 3:16 We each have the choice how we respond to problems – my earnest desire was to stay close to God during this time – I never needed to ask “why me?” because I became fully convinced that He was in complete control and loved me to bits! I met my husband David and our family grew along with our relationship with God.  We still had our share of the problems that we all face, but learnt God’s care during each challenge. Lynda Every blessing, 1 Accept that I was a sinner (can’t think of any other description!) and ask God’s forgiveness for all my damaging attitudes and actions, and choose to turn from them. Ask Jesus to come into my life – as Lord.  And He did! Allow the realisation that Jesus paid the cost of all my sin  in His death on the cross, thus releasing me into a new life. Freedom from shame – a fresh start. This was truly mind-blowing – and humbling as it was completely undeserved. 2 3 We are often asked how all this amazing work started, and why, despite the traumas, disappointments and difficulties, it continues. We’ve asked Lynda to tell her story .... Then Cancer... True religion ... is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress .... .James 1:27 The Jesus Film
