Testimony means many things to many people. Speaking in a non-legal way, my testimony is a faith statement of understanding my true relationship with God. This relationship is indestructible; it is inseparable; and it is absolutely inalienable. There is not an entity in God’s Creation that can take this relationship from me. My trust in God is a perfect experience of spiritual calmness, gratitude, and an ability to be altruistic in my sharing with others.
Mankind is indivisible with God, regardless of what the naysayers protest. God is good; therefore, we are good. . . at least our spiritual beings are good. Mortal man has many flaws; we prove that every day in our treatment of others. However, our spiritual man is a perfect reflection of God’s Love. And when we accept this indivisible relationship with eternity, we can realize and be the perfect man that God creates.
I say this not with pride but with the understanding that the true me, the one God created, is Love. There is no absence of my relationship with God in eternity for it is there that I have lived, presently live, and will live forever. . . now and especially when God rids me of this mortal body with its many defects. I trust Immanual, God within, without which I am nothing.
My voice and my very being, spiritual and mortal, accepts and recognizes the Voice of God leading me in my life. This is my testimony!
