Remembrance Bringing Forth Testimony
In September 1976 I went to my husband on one of those occasions that we were talking and told him I knew I was becoming too attracted to a business associate who had taken the time to listen and console me. If he didn’t (my husband) get me out of that town we would no longer have a marriage. He heard what I was saying and the Lord was with us. Within 30 days the family had moved and my husband was working at even a better job. We were now living at the other end of the east coast.
We didn’t know Jesus at this
time, but this was a
miracle of the Lord just keeping us together. God
carried us forward and even chose the place we were to live and call
home. We were purchasing a home in
We went to church with our neighbor and the girls; must admit that was a crazy place. My mother used to tell me about people like that. Funny thing though, we knew we had been to a special place. A place where people were real and seemed to care. After that, the “Hallelujah Kid” invited us to a Full Gospel Business Men’s breakfast where we saw a lot of people with peace and love for one another. My husband accepted an invitation for a new life in Christ at that meeting. I left that meeting still with huge walls encompassing me. I refused to hear on the surface what was being deposited into my spirit. I was still very unhappy in my circumstances and not functioning particularly well. The “Hallelujah Kid” and my husband thought it would help if I would agree to go for counseling which I did and, we did. That counseling session was held at the home of a pastor of the Fellowship of New Covenant Believers. I entered that home with walls around me so tall that I just knew I would never be vulnerable or hurt again. Thos walls were there to stay and they were my only protection. I had become a very hard calloused person.
That afternoon, after much love
and many tears, I met a man called Jesus,
one took away all the ugliness of the past, broke down the walls that
had been built up through the years and just washed me with His Blood
to the point that I was a snow white child of the King.
We started functioning in the Fellowship as a family with our three girls involved in a new life. We found we were being joined as family by the Lord with people in the local body.
I will continue this testimony in future articles. Be assured
that our Lord has many places for us to learn from one another.
Many times the Lord uses testimony of others to speak to a spot in our
lives that needs to conform to God’s ways. Above you will fine a
way to contact me. Don’t hesitate as I am a sister God has put in
this place to be available as needed. God bless you all
