Kiss the cheerleader goodbye

     Let me tell you what, God has been working on me lately.  At the convention Daved Platt asked if we were sure we were true followers of Christ.  In Sunday School we have been studying how to know that you are a true follower. My book club has been reading "Not a Fan" by Kyle Idleman which looks at your Christian walk. Put all of these things together and they have hit this old girl where she lives. For years I have always had a little doubt in the back of my mind. I wondered if  I was to young when I asked Jesus into my heart. For the first time in my long and unexciting life I can say I have no doubts. I am a true, sold out follower. With a child like faith I asked Christ to come and live in my heart and He has been there ever since. Through the trials and doubts he never left. For years I have wavered between being a Fan and a Follower. (I can cheer as good as anyone). But it is time to get down to it. This Follower is giving up on the fan club. I am turning in my pompoms. I am hitting the road and following the LEADER.

My name is Glenette Russell and I am not a fan.
