"I know the way I shall go because
He directs me with His love."

"I know the way I shall go because
He directs me with His love."

On August 26, 1977, I walked down the aisle at Nutley Assembly of God and knelt at the altar to receive Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior. On that day, as I walked the seemingly long aisle all by myself, my insides were leaping, exhilarated with new hope, with a new vitality I have not known before those moments. Something in me came alive, like a distant, almost lost desire suddenly became fulfilled.  It was an awakening, a breaking, a shattering of old delusions, and an entrance into a new life, a living hope, a glimpse of eternity in the moment. Today I rejoice in the gift of salvation and the adventure of living life with Him from the inside out.
