This has been making the rounds, and no doubt many of you have read it by now. But I wanted to share it in case some of you haven’t. Kirsten Powers is a contributor to USA Today and a columnist for Newsweek/The Daily Beast. She formerly served in the administration of Bill Clinton, and now she is a Democratic commentator at Fox News. In the November issue of Christianity Today, she shares how God invaded her life and converted her to faith in Christ. Here’s just a little bit of what she shared:
I remember walking into the Bible study. I had a knot in my stomach. In my mind, only weirdoes and zealots went to Bible studies. I don’t remember what was said that day. All I know is that when I left, everything had changed. I’ll never forget standing outside that apartment on the Upper East Side and saying to myself, “It’s true. It’s completely true.” The world looked entirely different, like a veil had been lifted off it. I had not an iota of doubt. I was filled with indescribable joy.
The horror of the prospect of being a devout Christian crept back in almost immediately. I spent the next few months doing my best to wrestle away from God. It was pointless. Everywhere I turned, there he was. Slowly there was less fear and more joy. The Hound of Heaven had pursued me and caught me—whether I liked it or not.
This one is well worth your time. Read the rest here.
