I AM FORGIVEN
I AM FORGIVEN. I have had countless people ask me what that means and where it comes from. They ask, Forgiven? What did you do? Or ask what I have been forgiven from?
When I started Forgiven Photography, I wanted to do something that had more meaning than just taking pictures for people. I wanted it to encompass my faith and love for Jesus Christ. As I was looking for trigger words to cause people to strike up conversations, this word Forgiven popped into my mind and held so much power for me. I knew that my testimony consisted of a pretty crazy lifestyle that would require me to man up and carry the consequences for the choices I made. I learned that one day I would have to give an account for every sin I did against God and there were many!
I was in need of a Savior from the destruction that I brought on, and had no way out. Jesus came knocking on my heart and changed it all. When I believed in Jesus and dedicated my life to following after him, something in me changed and I started to learn the meaning of true forgiveness. Because of him taking upon the punishment for what I deserved, He stepped in and died on a cross so that I would be forgiven. There is nothing I did, it was God who accepted Jesus sacrifice so that I could have life to the fullest. It is that forgiveness of sins that I am forever thankful, and that is why I chose that word to reach out through the gifts that God has given me.
That is how IAMFORGIVEN came into existence, through what God has done in my life.
I AM FORGIVEN, through the blood of Christ and you can be too.
