MEMORIES

My Testimony – Jenny Halligan

As a child I remember the things that I feared
Death was by far the greatest, although I had heard
That Jesus Christ loved me and He HAD to die?
But no-one explained, they just presumed I knew why?
So I didn’t dare ask, I was painfully shy!
Therefore God remained a mystery, ‘way up on high’!
I recall our ‘boring’ Sunday School, where I took nothing in?
We learned Bible verses ‘off by heart’, but I was never ‘born-again’!
I even got ‘confirmed’ in white, one of our great church ‘traditions’,
It was expected after ‘christening’, but I just went ‘through the motions!’
Still, I remember crystal-clearly, ‘Good Fridays’ on TV
Without fail, the life of Jesus would be shown
Each time, deeply moved, I cried, when I watched the way He died,
Because I ‘knew’ He HAD the power to ‘come on down!’
Yet still I didn’t know, how the Cross so long ago,
Could be up-to-date and relevant to me,
I went to work in a large town, left the church and home I’d known
And got as far away from God as I could be!!
I had a fling, did ‘my own thing’ and of course by that I mean, I was in the depths of sin!
I was empty and depressive, just like I’d always been
Always wearing a mask, putting up a ‘smokescreen’,
Naive, but feigning confidence, deep insecurity, false pride?
But suddenly, it all caught up with me, like having Mt. Vesuvius inside!
I was married 8 years, I’d just had a baby, and though almost 31, I felt I was going crazy!
God alone knows the ‘hell’ that I was in,
I was reaping consequences of a life messed up with sin!
But God sought me out and He set me on track,
Life began to change slowly and I could never go back,
To where I’d been and what I’d been for so many years before,
Life took on purpose and real meaning by Jesus Christ’s transforming power!

ALL PRAISE BE TO HIS GLORIOUS NAME !
