Testimony for Patricia (PK) Harden
As a 10-year-old child I come to realize there was something missing from my life. Our family was very poor and my Daddy was an alcoholic, but some how mother always provided food and clothing for us. We always had a home. I didn’t know until years later how God had used family and friends to help take care of us. I felt alone a lot of the time and felt like I did not have a Daddy to turn to when I needed guidance. Then I had a life changing experience and found my Heavenly Father Who met every need of my heart and life. He drew me close to Him, but most importantly, He drew close to me. I didn’t understand the full meaning of Jesus dying on the cross for my sin. I just know that if I died, I would spend eternity in Heaven with Him. He was my Savior and would never leave me. I had a “Best Friend” I could talk to and share every thought. I didn’t have to be alone anymore. Jesus was always with me.
God placed Godly Sunday School teachers in my life who encouraged me to memorize scripture and grow spiritually. It is an ongoing process. I continue to learn and grow daily as I allow Him to lead me. He is so faithful to show me His path day by day, to reveal more of His love, as I am able to receive it, and to teach me daily His way.
I know now that I am never alone and I have a “Daddy” Who will never leave me nor forsake me. He is my dearest friend and I can trust Him in all areas of my life. I praise His holy name for the free gift of eternal life through my LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.
