It is hard to describe how I felt about the people God brought to help me. I was so lost at the time and was hanging on by the only thread I had left to hang on to, the hope I had in Jesus and in them.

Sometimes I would imagine myself crouched on the ground behind Jesus clinging to the bottom of his robe saying, "Please just let me hang on, don't let me go. Just let me hang on". In my imagination, Jesus would have just walked on, allowing me to be dragged along- hanging onto his robe, and believe me that would have satisfied me more than enough. Just to touch his robe was precious. To my utter amazement, the first time I imagined this, Jesus not only let me hang on but bent down, picked me up, placed me on my feet, then walked next to me at my pace. I was so shocked because this was not apart of my imagination.

Jesus showed me my first glimpse of the enormous amount of compassion that is found in him alone. A compassion that is just too soft and beautiful to describe and one of the best descriptions I can find is in ;- Matt 12:18-21 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles. He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets. A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he sends forth judgment unto victory. And in his name shall the Gentiles trust. (kjv)

As the weeks went by my friend kept telling me about the importance of finding a church for me to settle into. I wasn't keen on the idea. Since my marriage separation, I found it hard to get out of the house. To face the world alone, as a single parent, was a really hard thing for me to do. Being out in the world amongst people, made me feel very alone and I just wanted to hide away. Then I remembered a friend Lisa, who I used to work with.

She had never actually said she was a Christian, but a few little things she had said from time to time made me think she was and so I decided to give her a call and ask her. I phoned her and she was home, so I just came straight out and asked her if she was a born again Christian. She said later, that when I asked her that she nearly fell off her chair. She said she was and I told her that so was I, as of a few weeks ago. She invited me to come along to her church. I told her I would go. She said, she was so excited that I had become a Christian. I hope she doesn't mind that I have written this, but she said that she used to sit in all our chairs at work when she worked back late and pray for us. When she told me this, I just thought what a beautiful thing to do. How could someone even think to do such a beautiful thing for his or her work mates?

I was excited about going to Church. I was happy that Lisa lived nearby and I could go to a church, where some one I knew was going. I was happy and I felt God was just so, for me right now. I prayed and thanked him.

I rang my other friend later and told her about it. I said, I was nervous about going and didn't know if I could go on my own. I said that I didn't know very much about the different kinds of churches and I didn't know what type of church the 'Church of Christ' was. She said she had already decided to come to church with me until I was settled in and felt comfortable going on my own. Sunday came and my friend picked me up to go to Church. I was so nervous but, excited too. We met up with my other friend Lisa and she introduced us to everyone. She was still excited that I had become a Christian and so was every one else who met me. I didn't know why, people who didn't even know me, would be excited, but I was glad I went. I sat there in that church listening to the person who was preaching and I don't think I will ever forget what he talked about. He asked a question- "Is God enough?' And then proceeded talking about all the things we think we need as well as God, or often instead of God. I sat there with a smile on my face the whole time he was talking, because all I could think was; "YES, God is enough."
