Fresh Start Stories
Be encouraged as you watch and read these real life examples of
transformed lives that have all experienced a Fresh Start!
Men & Women from...
"My life was pointless. I couldn't even see a reason why a depressed person should live. I was too fearful to kill myself, so I placed myself in situations where I could die or maybe someone would kill me. Not anymore...I see the point of life here. I see the heart Jesus has for me. With my heart free because of forgiving others, I see the treasure it is and why Jesus says that we are to guard it so strongly. The heart that God put in me is the most valuable land that exists & Jesus died to redeem it!"
"...helped me to learn about true forgiveness...the true meaning of the word...how to forgive truly from my heart...also that my God truly does love me for who I am & is always ready to forgive me, no matter what I do or what happens in my life. He is always willing to give us a fresh start. All we have to do is ask God & be willing..."
"I have never felt so consistently happy & fulfilled & yet want so much more. I have never felt this alive in my life...I'm learning to hear & I am starting to recognize His voice."
"Fresh Start set me free from the prison I allowed myself to build around my heart."
"I wanted to die...life was too much and hope too small...I knew it was wrong, but I gave God the 'one more chance' speech before going that first Monday. WOW! The Creator of all things met me in my awful attitude, hopeless outlook, and wrong demands. I don't know for absolute certain, but I think I'm alive today because Church on the Rock has Fresh Start and really good, imperfect people selflessly give themselves to you...that seems like the absolute perfect Jesus picture to me. Thank you seems so weak & meaningless for how I feel. I hope you (the team) know what you do for people - you saved my life!"
