I was raised in the United Pentecostal Church. I love the upbringing that I had. Would never want to say anything against it.
But as I got older, the Lord has lead me down different paths.
In my heart, I believe that each of us have to make the decision for ourselves. We will have to stand before the Lord on Judgement Day. And on that day, I won't be able to turn to my parents, husband, children, pastor or friends to help me answer, My walk with the Lord is personal, yet not. Like the children's song, we sang in Sunday School, "This Little Light of Mine". I want my life to shine for the Lord. I don't want people to have to wonder if I am a Christian, I want my life to show it.
