Greetings, Grace Church!
My name is CJ Haynes, and I am from Florida. The Lord had begun his work in my life as a child, but surrendering to Him and knowing Him came later. Once I finally realized that the essence of knowing Him was a matter of belief. I realized my desires, pursuits, and ambitions could take me nowhere. I understood that gratification that comes with vain things would never fulfill the longing for acceptance. I found Jesus in a dark moment, but sometimes it takes a dark moment to see and appreciate the light and truth in the Gospel. All in all, it has been a journey and a blessing seeing the Lord's hands pave a way that no man could pave. I'm saying that my heart is ecstatic to serve the body here and encourage brothers and sisters that He (Jesus) who loves is also He who cares.
May you be encouraged that in the seasons of life, The only person constant is Christ.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust." Psalm 91:1-2 NKJV
