Being raised in the church, I thought I could hide my lost condition, and avoid going to the alter.  As time went on, it became harder for me to run from the convicting power of the Lord.  I had gone to the alter several times and done everything I thought I could do.  Once Sunday I decided I was not going to go back to the alter that morning.   I had been doing that, and the Lord had not saved me. Needless to say, my Sunday afternoon was a miserable one; and I couldn’t wait to get back to the church.  That Sunday evening, I was back on the alter seeking the Lord.  I tried to give up everything I possibly could and begged the Lord to save me, but still was lost.  I was mentally and physically exhausted.  As we stood and got ready to go home, the preacher asked me if there was anything else I needed to do.  I told him I needed to try one more time.  As soon as these words were out of my mouth, I went back to my place on the alter.  The whole church went back down and began to pray for me.  I knelt down, but something had changed, something was different.  I felt a calm peaceful feeling come over me.  The burden had just gone away.  There were no tears, no begging, just peace.  I knew the Lord had saved me.  I guess He just wanted me to be willing to “try one more time”.
