Thank you so much for sharing your testimony with us. It is always an honor to hear from someone who was blessed and saved by grace, and lives on to give the glory to the One that provided the love and strength to bring them through.

Well written and touching.

God bless~
What a beautifully written testimony! You show so well how our Father holds each of us close and cares for us. Your phrases and word choices elegantly drew a picture of your life and how you were saved. Bravo.
The best thing about having a testimony like this is the fact that you can touch lives of people in similar circumstances, where they might not listen to someone who doesn't.
This is a beautiful testimony. I liked especially your reference to the Providential Hand.
Beautifully expressed and written. I love the imagery in your last paragraph; great summary of story!
I wish there was a level beyond "Masters." You write so vividly, with humility, that I MUST read your articles - brick thrown or not. Great job!
This is an incredible piece. I love how it seems honest and genuine testimonies are coming out through the Challenge week after week. It seems almost as though one baring of the soul encourages another, and the result is the revelation of God's mercy, protection and forgiveness in so many lives. It helps many of us to see where He's been at work in our own lives in places we never noticed before.

I especially loved the imagery you used when you wrote of the hand that protected being the same hand that was reaching out.

This was truly a masterful job.
God bless~
Congratulations on the high ranking for the awesome piece!
It's always an enormous blessing to read a testimony to God's grace. This was so beautifully illustrated it made me cry with thankfulness.
Wow! I have tears in my eyes for the man who suffered so much pain that he thought alcohol could numb him. Mixed in those tears are tears of joy for the man the MC has become today. God is great and your story will surely make a difference in someone's life. Thank you for being obedient to God in writing this. Congratulations and a huge Happy Dance!!
Congratulations on sharing your story without glamorizing it, as I've heard too many stories like it that glorify the past stupidity and make listeners feel that they've never been bad enough to become good enough to have a testimony.
And congrats on your EC. Well done.
Hi Grahm -

I read entries like this, and it makes me wonder if I'll ever get out of the Beginner category!

Seriously, I love reading the "Masters". I was going to be brave and give you a bit of a critique - but obviously that's not necessary.

Congratulations! You are an inspiration to us all.

God bless!
You wrote an extremely powerful entry this week.

There are these words from a favorite song- 'We will overcome by the blood of the Lamb
And the word of our testimony, everyone overcome.'

There is not much more powerful than a transparently gritty account of the power of the Cross and Him who is always watching over us.

Nothing we have ever done or now can do will detracts or add to His love for us!

Thank you for writing this.
