While in college I worked in a factory and one of the veteran workers always called me “Twiggy.” I assumed it was because I was tall and thin like a twig, but had no idea that there was a model by that name until someone told me months later. After having my two boys, I don’t look quite so “twiggy” anymore! The analogy of the Leaves, the Branch, and the Trunk kind of fit the name, so I resurrected it for the blog.
MY SALVATION TESTIMONY
I have several very vivid memories of my childhood. One of those memories is of the day I realized that I was a sinner and not worthy to live forever with God. I was six years old and sitting in a church pew listening to a Bible story during Vacation Bible School. After the story (one that was about hell) I knew I was a sinner and would go to hell. I raised my hand to talk to a teacher about it and went downstairs to “the big yellow room” with a few other kids and a lady from my church. It was that day that I prayed to God to forgive me of my sins so that I could live with Him in heaven forever. Several years later I just wasn’t sure I knew what I was doing back when I was six years old. I knew all about God and that he sent his Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for all mankind, but wasn’t sure that I really understood what I was praying back when I was only six. I then recommitted my life to Him. I wanted God to know that I understood as much about salvation as I could at that time and that I would live my life for Him. I have had no doubts since.
