In Christ I Proudly Serve

I came to Christ, one dark Lonely night–all by myself, having 3 young children, husband deserted me, was getting ready to be thrown out of my step-father’s fathers house, No Money, God brought me to my knees–I knew He Was The Answer, but I couldn’t seem to find Him–I kept crying out to Him–Uncontrollable sobbing, on my knees most of that night with My Bible in my hands, Finally, I was led to read Matthew, I read, until I came to Matthew 6:28-32 and it was as if a warm blanket of Wonderous Happiness, Peace and Contentment came over me as the words Jumped off the pages–I Suddenly knew without a doubt that God was going to take care of everything–I felt so at Ease, so at Peace, and I Praised Him and Thanked over and over and I drifted off to a Wonderful nights sleep that I hadn’t had in a LONG time!!

The days that followed were unbelievable miracles that took place–I had a Yard sale to raise money for a place to live and food to eat for me and my children, until I could find a job. I Made over $3,000.00 at that yard sale–A Miracle in itself—- I had nothing worth that kind of money–It came from Our Heavenly Father, like Jesus took the childs lunch and mutiplied it to feed thousands, with left overs–2 weeks later I got a call from my attorney, who was persuing child support for me, his secretary told me there was a check waiting for me at his office–I asked what check–where did it come from–The Secretary said it seems that your ex-husband has paid $2,000.00 plus in back child support–My ex didn’t even have a job!!!Come to find out his Parents decided to pay it, Why, Because God softened their hearts–because thay didn’t like me–in fact couldn’t stand me, there could be no other way, that they would have paid that money, since my ex. had no job, the state could n! ot force him to pay–at least in the state of VA. back in the 80’s!! Everything fell into place– I was going to a Wonderful Little Church– I went before everyone and Proclaimed Jesus as my Savior and thats the Short Version of how I came To Christ– I Think its Unique, Awesome and Amazing, of what God did for me because of my Brokedness, bringing me to my knees, teaching me that I Can Not Do Anything Without Him and Showing me what HE could Do For Me Once I Put My Total Trust in Him–Yet I Never expected a thing–I just wanted His Love and Peace and His Fullfillment of that awful Void in My Heart and I knew and accepted, whatever would take place after that night of Brokedness, whether I still had no place to live or no food, I Trusted Him in Whatever Took Place, that whatever happened He Would Bring Me Through it–I didn’t Pray for Money or all the other needs–for I knew that He already Knew My Needs, and that He would Provide Whatever He saw fit!!! Another Experience happened to me, in which God Showed me how He Wanted me to Minister His! Word. For Many, Many Years, I kept Asking God—Where Are My Gifts??–I Can’t sing, I can’t Play a Musical Instrument-Among The Many OtherThings I Can’t Do-LORD, Tell Me What Can I Do??Because I Want To Make A Difference In People’s Lives!!One Day A Friend Of Mine Came Along And I Asked HerThat Very Same Question!!!She Said–Debbie, You Can’t See It Can You??I Said See What??You Have The Gift Of COMPASSION!!!I Laughed At Her!!!I Said So What–Thats Nothing!!!Then A Seris Of Events, Happened To Me, In Which I spent an Agonizing 12 Hours in Jail That Gave Me A Look at People In Prison!!!(And, Yes ,This Could Happen To You—Anybody—A Simple Mistake and Off You Go!!!!) And Then It Hit Me, Like a Soft Whisper Of a Beautiful Bird in my Ear!!!This Is What I Want You To Do, Said ‘The Holy Spirit’!!!!Minister To These People, They Are Lost , In Dispair,Forgotton, Never Been Loved Before—Tell Them That I Love Them–Help Them See Me and I’m Crying As I Tell You This, Because It WAS The Most AWESOME EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE, After getting Saved, of course!!!
