My Hazardous Faith Story

My Hazardous Faith Story

During the week of August 27th, I’m asking you to share your story about following Jesus through tough decisions or hard times in a synchroblog. Here are the details:

The Big Picture of This Synchoblog

Following Jesus brings sacrifice, uncertainty, risk, and sometimes hazardous situations. Most of us can come to terms with the cost of discipleship in theory, but what does living out costly discipleship look like in real life? How do we determine whether or not God is guiding us? When do we step out in faith and take risks? When should we play it safe?

My new co-authored book is about answering those questions: Hazardous: Committing to the Cost of Following Jesus. If you’ve committed to Jesus as your Savior it’s often hard to figure out what it means for him to be your Lord in your daily decisions. In fact, living out costly discipleship can look quite different from person to person. There’s no blueprint for following Jesus, and that’s why I’m organizing this synchroblog where we all share our stories.

The Details of This Synchroblog

During the week of August 27-September 1, write a post for your blog:

  • Write a blog post sharing a personal story about a challenge you faced as a follower of Jesus. (You could also add: “I’m sharing My Hazardous Faith Story as part of a synchroblog connected with the release of Ed Cyzewski and Derek Cooper’s new book Hazardous: Committing to the Cost of Following Jesus.”).
  • At the bottom of your post, link to the synchroblog landing page: http://wp.me/PewoB-SN so that others can share their own Hazardous Faith Stories (Hey, you can just copy and paste these bullet points!)
  • Add your post to the link up section at the bottom of the My Hazardous Faith Story landing page on Monday-Saturday. Don’t forget to read and comment on at least one other post!
  • Tweet your post with the #HazardousFaith tag.
  • Include this image with your post: 400 pixels or 250 pixels width.

That’s it! Let’s encourage one another to follow Jesus through the rough, uncertain, and even hazardous times of life by sharing our stories. I pray that this will be an uplifting week of story telling!

Thanks for joining in!
Ed Cyzewski and Derek Cooper

    ” My True Encounter with God”
    I gave my life to Jesus at the tender age of 14, and, about two weeks later, this is what happened to me.

    One morning in late 1986, I had gotten up and was on my way to the restroom, and everyone in my home was asleep. As I began to walk toward the restroom the Spirit of GOD said to me, “Look in your hand.” I began to say back to the Spirit, “Why would I look in my hand?” Then the Spirit spoke for the second time, “I said look in your hand.”

    I was talking back to the Spirit of GOD and looking up at the ceiling. I did not know what was going on, and as you can imagine, I was frightened. On the third and final time, the Spirit of God’s voice was really loud! He said, “look in your hand!”

    This time I looked at my right hand, and saw what appeared to be a puddle of blood under the skin, and yet, it was not bleeding. Then I noticed that GOD had placed a beautiful cross in the center of my right hand.

    I went to my mother’s room and knocked as hard as I could on her door, and when she saw my hand, the only thing she could say was, “Oh my GOD! Oh my GOD!”

    We did not know what to do! After we had thought about it we decided to ask one of our local pastors what they thought about my experience.

    We called a Pastor in Newnan, Georgia, and when my mother had told him, the Pastor said, “I know what happened to your daughter, “Tell her to show it to as many people as she can, because GOD has marked your Daughter.”

    It was an Amazing, Powerful Encounter with GOD that I will never forget! He has overwhelmed me with His Powerful love, and will forever have all of my heart, and I will forever live for HIM!

    This is a true Story, and the cross is still in my right hand to this day.

    I have been sharing the Gospel of Salvation since the age of fourteen. I love meeting people and making new friends along the way! Christ is my passion! And I am sharing my True Encounter with God through the cross He marked in my right hand.

    “For with GOD nothing shall be impossible,” (Luke 1:37).

    “And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen,” (John 21:25).

    I Love JESUS so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GOD Bless You!
    Love, Angel: United States
