The Greatest Day of My Life
Is more than all the world to me
Tis higher than the heights above
And deeper than the soundness sea
So old, so new
So strong, so true
Before the earth received its frame
He loved me; Blessed Be His name.
Litianna had written down these heartfelt words in her diary before she went to sleep. The diary was closed, but Litianna would like to remember everything happening to her today.
Litianna was my name. I grew up in a very religious family and had always been faithful in attending church. At one point in my life, I had accomplished a very important career goal. Having just about everything I had ever wanted, I still felt empty. There was a void that I tried to fill with different things, but not Jesus.
I began to make friends with my colleagues in the same company where I was working as an executive manager of Human Resource Department. Although I still believed in God, I feared Him and felt He was far away, someplace called heaven--a place I had doubts of ever getting to. I became involved in the social life. As a result, I stopped looking for God.
One day, I suddenly became jobless. I lived in distress, hopelessness, and shame. My friends turned away. In spite of my motherís attempts to bring me to the Church, I saw no need for it in my life. As a result of her persistence, I finally attended a Sunday School class. During the class, I heard the teacher reading "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Hebrews 12:2). At this time, I realized that I had gone on my own way of life. I fought my old life with flesh and blood but not with faith in Jesus Christ. And at the same time, I remembered George Mullerís testimony. There is never a time when we may not hope in God! Whatever the necessities, however great our difficulties, and though to all appearances help is impossible, yet our business is to hope in God, and it will be found that it is not in vain.
After the class, I told the teacher that I was so grateful because inviting Christ into my life in the first Sunday school class was the greatest day of my life.
Litianna made a wise decision for her life by putting hope in Jesus Christ, her Savior. Are you willing to do this like her right now? Jesus Christ is waiting for you moment by moment, hour by hour, and day by day. You must make a dedication, a full consecration now before the pull of worldly ambition becomes too strong.
