I was saved on May 10, 2009. We were headed down to Louisville to attend a singing service at Lyon’s Missionary Baptist Church. I had never felt the conviction of the Lord until this night. I clearly remember Celeste Shive singing “Beulah Land” when conviction set in. I sat in my seat and began to breathe very heavy and cry. I had never felt this scared before in my life. I didn’t want to go up to the altar alone, so I asked my mom to come with me. She came with me, but I hit the altar first because I ran up there. I don’t remember how long I was praying, but I don’t know that I was crying out to God and begging Him to save me, and when I had given up trying to say the right words, and just honestly sought Him with the bottom of my heart, He saved me. I do not know how to describe the feeling, other than it was a divine peace that let me know that I would live in Heaven one day. I was the first of, I believe it was, 9 that got saved that night. Praise God!
