All Stories

 
I was raised a Christian, and baptized at 13 years old. By 16 however, I strayed away from my church and from my religion completely. It never really crossed my mind again until recently;​ ten years later.

I have not lived the hardest life of anyone out there, but I haven'​t lived the easiest either. I'​ve definitely had more than my fair share of hardships. Abusive relationships, major financial troubles, mental illness, single parenting of three children, and so on. You get the point.

Things recently haven'​t been horrible by any means, but trying to say the least. In the last year my mental illness has pushed me to rock bottom and I lost my job. However, I began a relationship with a wonderful man that treats me like a princess and treats my children as if they were his own. However, he lost his job also. Long story short, the stress of it all was tearing us all apart.

In the last month, I'​ve felt this "​pull"​ to get back in touch with God. So finally I decided to act upon that. I began reading my Bible from the beginning. I began praying every day, several times a day. And every morning at the same time I listen to a short sermon on my favorite local radio station. I followed a lesson I learned elsewhere, saying I could become independent through dependence on God. I admitted I had no real control over my life, and I admitted that "​making my own fate"​ was failing me horribly. Almost immediately I felt like a brand new person. No, we don'​t have money falling at our feet;​ we work hard every day just to make the bare minimum to keep our heads above water. BUT - my anxiety, fear and anger have almost disappeared completely, which is honestly a miracle to me. I'​m happy. I see clearly every day how blessed I am for all that I DO have. I have the ambition and motivation to take the necessary steps to make things better;​ the things I can control, that is. As for everything else - I put all of that in God'​s hands, and he has been more than generous already. My quality of life has multiplied tenfold since I handed myself over to God. I'​m not exaggerating, not one bit. It truly amazes me.

Answered Prayer

One Friday night I was driving with some friends around the city in a borrowed car. While driving, the car died on us and we managed to pull off to the side of the road. We were all visitors to the city attending a local Bible school and none of us really knew what to do.

I had worked on enough vehicles in my earlier days so I lifted the hood to see if I could figure it out. I tried everything ...

Awesome God

As Christians, we tend to over analyze what God is doing in our lives right now. We search for an answer every time we saw something unknown, our inner thoughts is asking why?

If you will look into this verse:


Psalm 135:6
New International Version (NIV)
6 The Lord does whatever pleases him,
in the heavens and on the earth,
in the seas and all their depths.



God knows everything ...

God Is Faithful

A testimony of what happened to me in the last quarter of 2010. It is so powerful and has been weighing on my heart that I felt lead to share it:

In October I had 3 horrible migraine headaches that sent me to the emergency room. I was administered up to 3 morphine injections each time then released. I had to see my doctor for a follow up visit, then the neurologist. They put me on powerful medi...
