I gave my Christian testimony to the men in my church yesterday. Here is the most important true story about my life.

 

My Christian Testimony by John Michael Domino

 

I grew up in the projects in Brooklyn, New York. My parents worked hard to give me what they did not have, three balanced meals, a good education and a room full of toys. As a young Catholic I attended church every Sunday and was taught not to sin. I recall vividly the comparison of the sour milk (sinful nature) and the fresh milk (with no sin) in Sunday school. I often stared at the tall colossal statues in our church of Saint Peter, Saint John and Saint Paul and wondered, “How am I ever going to grow up and fill their shoes?” I felt that I could never be sinless and there was no way could I live up to the expectations of the church. I knew that I could never measure up to the holiness of the saints (those huge statues). So in time, as I reached my teen years, I drifted away from my good habits and replaced them with some of characteristics of what we used to call a J.D. (my initials) which stood for Juvenile Delinquent.

In high school I was a very confused young man. I became restless, anxious, impatient, and I felt lost. At first, I was undecided about my future. Then with a push from a Godly and caring mother I was off to college. However, drugs and alchol dominated the college campus and I was spiraling downhill fast. I attended college for two years, got married young and then joined the United States Air Force (USAF). The experience in USAF helped me gain confidence and with some good solid Christian friends I was on the right road to spiritual recovery. Still, I was NOT yet saved and my internal dilemma went on between what was truly right and what was wrong. I was better off spiritually but I was still very much a lost soul.

Then, one evening, at Myrtle Beach Air Force Base I walked out of my home after having a heated family argument. I walked to the beach and halfway back home this big blue charted bus stopped in front of me. Stepping off the bus were dozens of smiling Christians who were on their way to a Christian retreat. They stepped right in front of my pathway home, turned around and smiled. Then as I passed by a couple of them asked me for directions. I wondered, “These folks are asking me for directions but I am the one who is really lost!” After they were all contented with my answers they asked me to join them. I felt honored that they asked but explained that I had to get back to my family and walked on. While strolling back home I could not stop thinking about all the wonderful warm and cheerful people on that Christian bus. They had a special glow in their eyes and it was so uplifting just to be around them. I thought how great it would be to live a life like them! It was at that moment I decided I had enough of my old life and I started my walk with Jesus. I NEVER looked back. There is NO reason why I would ever want to go back to the old me. The rest is history. My goal now is to follow Christ and let the world know that there is a better future on earth as we live and forever more with Him after we die.

Praise the Lord Jesus Christ!

2 Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a New Creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

Thanks for sharing your story. It makes me hope that when people encounter me, that same glow from Christ makes them want what I have, too. But I guess God had been drawing you for some time, so He allowed you to see in that group what He wanted you to see. Blessings to you!

What an inspiring story! God can touch one's life at the most unexpected times. When I was quite youg , my parents sent me to a Catholic school for a while and I learned about God from the sisters. AS I became older ,I joined the North Congretional Church and had perfect attendance at sunday school. I'm still going to church, but it's a different one as I live in Florida and I am now a Methodist. We are lucky to have freedom of choice in this country.Thank you for your kind uplifting words....M

A great story and you should share it as often as possible. I truly believe there are angels among us and God directs them as needed; such as, the ones on the bus,and you...by sharing your story. Who knows whose life may change because of your testimonial story. Blessings to you.
