Marta's Story on Joining a Life Group
Live Love Laugh. That is exactly what we did. I learned how to live through Jesus Christ, and I learned how to love Jesus. I learned how to laugh with my best friend Jesus Christ.
In the beginning I was very quiet, very shy. And then as the weeks passed by, I started to open up more. I learned how to share my stories and my insights. And how I used to be and how I didn't like who I was and wanted to change. I finally came to my senses this year, and said to myself this will be the year that I join and will do it. Not like last year, as some of you heard in my story. I made every excuse possible and I didn't trust Jesus that it would happen for me to join. I didn't trust that it would be possible for me to fit a Life Group into my life. Then after I had my "aha" moment with Jesus, I said to myself, it's not my life. It's Jesus's life living through me and I need this. I needed to learn how to trust him more and know the difference between the truth and the lies of life.
I couldn't be more thankful and more grateful of my experience with Sue's life group Live Love Laugh as I have a lot more to laugh about, a lot more to live for, and a lot more to express my love for those who don't know who Jesus Christ is. I can't wait to go to sleep and wake up tomorrow to start our next semester of Life Groups. I love these ladies with all my heart and I can't wait to learn more from them. Thank you Sue for being the first one I saw walking into Skyline one morning and handed me your card and invited me so to life group on Monday evenings at Lorri's house. Thank you for accepting me. I love you and all of my sisters in Christ. I would like to encourage everyone to find a life group and connect. It helped me and it can help you.
