Testimony of Nita L

    I grew up in a Christian home and made a profession of faith at a very young age. I don't recall however much of the experience except for praying and asking the Lord to save me. When I became a teenager, I began to doubt my salvation. I would always think that because I prayed when I was younger, I must be saved. I know now that it was the Lord working on me trying to show me that I really was lost and had never dealt with Christ. During my first year in Bible College, I met my future husband Craig Ledbetter, and towards the end of that year we were going over his Junior Church lesson. I asked him why he didn't plan to have an invitation that day. Craig responded that you have to be very careful when dealing with four, five, and six year olds, and that he always explained the plan of salvation, but spent time with every one of the kids personally, resulting in most of them getting saved later. I asked "does that mean that I'm not saved?"  He said that he didn't know, but that it was important to settle, because if I am trusting in the fact that I prayed a prayer, then I may not have understood that what saves is trusting in Jesus. I searched my heart that moment and then trusted the Lord Jesus to truly save me!
