If you have never heard Kurt and Brenda Warner’s testimony, you need to. Here is a little piece of Kurt’s they have on their website called First Things First. Brenda has a book out called, One Call Away. I encourage anyone that is going through a trial right now to read this book.
I was raised in the church, so faith and God were part of my life, but for me it was just kind of there… there on Sundays and when I was going through a tough time. I always had God as a background, but I never truly accepted Jesus until I was about 25 years old. My arena league teammates, a pastor friend and my future wife were constantly asking questions about my beliefs, and I began to question where I was and whether I had really put my complete faith in God. Their questions led me to the Truth – that faith is about a relationship, and it’s about Jesus. Up to that point, I had never really considered that. I struggled for so long and so many things went against me. I was swimming upstream. When I finally gave my life over to God, it was then the joy and happiness came into my life. Now I realize my role here on Earth is not to throw touchdown passes and win football games, although that is the position and the platform I have been given. I realize my goal is to win as many people to Jesus as possible. I have an open-door policy, where I’m able to talk about what is most important to me, and obviously God is #1. ~Kurt Warner
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
