According to Miriam-Webster.com, the word “testimony means:
- proof or evidence that something exists or is true,
- firsthand authentication of a fact,
- an open acknowledgment,
- a public profession of religious experience . . .
Typically, when we post testimonies here on truthsaves, we’re detailing conversion experiences. But as Miriam-Webster kindly points out, a testimony is so much more than that. So, we gladly post Hannah’s testimony which meets all the above requirements of a testimony. Her testimony begins below.
I’m so incredibly blessed with the privilege of serving God each and every day. Especially at school, because the kids at my school don’t know God. Well, I decided that it’d be a good idea to start bringing my Bible more often. I began to study the Bible with a group of six people. Two of the six weren’t Christians, and I was proud of them for opening up to God and His Word. We studied each day, and I couldn’t have been happier when one of them was saved five weeks after our group started studying together. The other decided to follow Jesus, but she hasn’t accepted him into her heart. Now, we’ve started FCA back up at my school. The two girls that were saved by the Word of God have gotten so into it! I smile and thank Jesus every time I think about it. I feel incredibly blessed to know that I have Jesus by my side to help me! (BTW, I’m only 13 years old, too.) We pray for the two girls all the time, and I’m proud to say this: They are no longer struggling with depression. They don’t feel alone anymore. They don’t feel the need to self-harm anymore. They want to serve Jesus and live for him.
