And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the house of Jacob, and I will look for him. Isaiah 8:17

TURN : a testimony of what this word means

Sister Stephanie Smith  one of the directors of the CIA, has written the story of her conversion.  You can read it on Meridian Magazine

I don't know if she knows any Hebrew, but she certainly understands how to use the word SHUV = TURN.

"Disciples of Christ must be full participants in the community of Christ.  I recently read something that seems to me quite wise:  No one comes to church each week to find God; we come to share God—to share what we know and feel of Him, to strengthen and uplift and fortify each other.  True conversion requires not simply that we turn away from sin, but that we turn toward righteousness.  And righteousness involves turning toward others, loving them, serving them, bearing their burdens and sharing their joys.  On the path toward conversion and discipleship, I find that I must arm myself every day with prayer and scripture reading.  I was 49 when I opened the Old Testament for the first time, I’m ashamed to say.  Now I am a daily reader.  "

Well-said, Sister Smith
