Testimony tuEsday

<Kinslee Medlin>

Growing up, my parents had me in church whenever the doors were open. I was saved in the first grade, and I would attend every children’s service, preaching, or any other event we had going on. I was physically present, and I though that was enough. 

As I got older, I continued to stay involved at church and with our programs, but I was still searching for the big picture. I thought being in the church building was enough for me to say “I’m a Christian; I go to church.” 

However, when I was halfway through high school, I finally realized the importance of making a presence vs. actually being present. I began taking in information and studying the Bible. Truly falling in love with the Lord. I don’t simply show up to church to say I went; I show up to church to have my soul fed with His love, grace, and mercy.

In this season, the Lord has shown me even more that being physically present in the church building means nothing when you’re not spiritually present for Him. 

This month, I’m supposed to be graduating high school, going to prom, and getting ready for my freshman year of college. However, the Lord has a different, and perfect, plan. Take this time of uncertainty as a time to become present in the Spirit. He has shown us through this quarantine that simply making a presence is not the important thing for us to be worried about.

24 year old dude with not a clue what he's doing but God's grace continues to amaze me! Current Seminary student, avid adventure seeker, and getting married to the most humble, weird, and beautiful girl on the planet! Wasted a lot of years living what I thought was the "good life", then Christ showed me what living really is. I pray that my story can somehow help in whatever way possible, to give encouragement and hope that Christ can do the same with you.
