 The Testimony of Carolyn Zoretic

November 1978, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. At that time I was searching for answers not even sure what questions to ask or who to ask. I was using drugs including marijuana, cocaine, PCP and pills (uppers and downers). I lived by the philosophy that as long as it didn’t hurt anyone else, it was alright with me. The only problem was my definition of “hurt”. You can have physical, emotional or mental hurt and realize all three, but there’s a deeper pain that is unexplainable, that’s the pain of loneliness with people all around you, despair without reason, and confusion within. I started running from myself and who I was, playing games with my life and those around me.

When I repented of my sin and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior my life did an about face….no longer do I do drugs and have quit my running. I praise God for a new life. I now have a love for people, not a phony face that comes and goes, but a genuine love and concern for each and every one of you out there. I pray that you might come to know and understand that Jesus Christ loves you and cares very much about you. He wants to give you that peace inside, the joy you’re looking for and the love you’ve not been able to find. Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and the Life!

“I do not know the reason why
He chose this path for me,
Nor why it is I walk in night
So dark I scarce can see.
But this I know, He goes ahead
And though the path is steep
I’ll gladly follow in the prints
Made by the nail scared feet!”
