I’ve always known of Jesus. My folks loved traveling. My mom would tell me that God listens to the prayers of little children. So, each trip started with me praying. I remember them taking me to a few different churches but we never went any where for long. I never saw a Bible in our home. I didn’t have a relationship with Him.
I never stopped praying. I always felt peaceful, happy, safe when I prayed.
Let’s fast forward. I married. He was agnostic, I prayed. Not a good combo. He thought it was stupid when I prayed. I still prayed, I was just quieter, sneakier. We had 2 girls, 2 precious girls. When the youngest was about 2 she was napping. Have you ever noticed how angelic toddlers look when they sleep? I have. Her hair was silvery & gold in the sunlight, she was so beautiful & innocent. I brushed the hair from her face & I prayed. “Lord, I want 4 more girls. I don’t want to give birth to any more. But, I would love it if you would bring me 4 more girls.”
That marriage didn’t last. Divorce is ugly. Leaves everyone scarred. But, it was the right thing for us.
I met my sweetheart 7 years after that prayer. 7, such an amazing number, Biblical. My sweetheart was saved, his dad a pastor, his mom on fire for God. Oh! He had 4 girls!!! My 4 more girls.
Dick told me about his relationship with his Savior. Mom & dad told me the changes that happen when you ask Jesus into your heart. I wanted what they had, I knew without a doubt they were telling me the truth.
Dick was at his house, I was at mine in bed ready for bed. We talked on the phone for a bit. He told me about the sinners prayer. I prayed in my bed all alone that night. But, I wasn’t alone at all … God met me where I was, I knew He had been waiting for me, welcoming me. I didn’t even know I was crying, cleansing tears. Saved.
My life has never been the same. Changed, forever changed. Thank You Jesus.
I enjoy sharing my story. It always amazes me to know where I was it where I am. I enjoy the stories of other lives changed to. God does such amazing things especially with a willing heart. I pray for Him to use me, I pray for Him to use you. I pray His love fills you like nothing else can. I pray that you become a woman saying yes to God too. He’s waiting for you, He loves you. He doesn’t make junk, He makes all things beautiful. Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV
“He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Let’s make sure we get to the end of His story, eternal life sounds awesome!
