On February 25, 2018 Noah Clark decided to make Jesus Lord and come into the light! I asked Noah to write out how this all came to pass. Below is his testimony to God’s working in his life.
“My life, and the beliefs that I have had in this life, have been random, and unplanted, and confusing. I had for more the majority of my life been in a war with my own beliefs, so many things racing through my mind. I didn’t know what to believe, I had no clear answers to anything in life, and this showed in how I lived life.
I have for the majority of my life been unguided. I haven’t had a strong goal or dream to accomplish, nor have I felt or discovered my true purpose in life. I had decided by as early as freshman year that I was an atheist, and that God was a 100% farce, and everything else that came with him was total garbage.
I used to have huge arguments with friends and even family about this, I had come to the conclusion that you couldn’t have God in your life because it negated science in every way possible. I was blinded by science and the figureheads of the scientific community, and like most atheists, I was closed minded, not willing to hear or listen to the other side, I was sometimes even offended by someone’s beliefs.
By my senior year in High School I had officially figured out how much of a fail my High School career has been. Not only were my grades awful but my social life was going down the tube. I was swept up by own ignorant, prideful, and sinful nature. I thought I had no avenue to go down at this point, I was discouraged, I didn’t see a light, and I didn’t know where to look for one.
It was a month into my senior year, one of my only friends at the time, Jonathan Heinzman, brought me the church devotional. I had decided after a lot of reluctance, to allow myself to be vulnerable, and to let God work in my life. It was at this moment, where for the first time in months, that I had felt happy. I felt like I had answers. And this was not just a coincidence, it was God giving the path to his Kingdom. The more I studied the bible, and the more I talked, and discussed God with my fellow teens in the Teen Ministry, the more I realized that I had found the true avenue to success and and a good life. The way was God’s way, and I was ready to follow it.
Six months later I feel more connected to God then ever before, and I truly feel I am on the right path. I had decided to make the next step in my life, in fact, I had decided to restart my life and become a disciple of God. And to enter God’s Kingdom. On February 25th, I was baptized, and made Jesus my lord. I have become a new person, and I am ready to live as warrior for God, and live in God’s Kingdom. A Kingdom which will last forever, and one I am blessed to now to be apart of.”
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
