New Life

After my future wife witnessed to me, God opened my heart.  I saw His Creation for the first time as He saw it.  A short time later I became a new believer.  Jesus became the Lord of my life.

I grew in understanding by reading His Word.  The Bible says God works in me to give me a desire to serve Him and work for Him.  Why?  For God’s pleasure.  He made me the way I am, deaf or profoundly hard of hearing.  Why?  To do good works which He already planned for me to do for His pleasure.

I was living aimlessly, without much of a goal except to do my best.  Now as a believer I had a life’s purpose, and the desire to serve God for His pleasure.  A new goal, to help Deaf believers grew in my heart.  It was still a few years off in my future, but God had His plan in place and right on His schedule.

Philippians 2:13 “For it is God who works in you both to will and to work, for his good pleasure.” (WEB)

Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand so we may do them.” (NET)
