Jesus became Lord of my life in June of 96. My
family was going through some rough times, and
Jesus showed himself to me in a way that I'll
never forget.I guess I should say more than rough
times..after all everybody goes through their
own rough times.. So let me say my life was
falling apart at the seams.. OK... we all have
had our past we would like to bury under the rug.
I'm not here to blab... just to show you that
JESUS lives and he changed my life around..so here is the
not so " ugly details "....
I grew up in a small town in Ohio, my mother
was the church secretary,and a Sunday school
teacher. My father was the church caretaker.
So I spent most of my childhood at the church.
I had always belived that I was going to heaven
even though I didn't have a personal relationship
with our Lord and savior.
I feel strongly today that my childhood church
believes in good deeds.I went through membership
classes,and conformation classes still not knowing
who Jesus really was.
My husband invited Jesus in when he was a small
boy.I never really understood this when we would
talk about it.I just always believed I was going to heaven.
The Lord was tugging at my husbands heart to put
Jesus at the center of his life, and family.
Ok.. a little intermission.... I have to tell
you at this point in our life is where it
started to fall apart at the seams. When the
Lord is working, and when he is working, let me
tell you goods things come...The Devil tries
so hard to keep you on his path.I was going down
the wrong path..Our home life was in shambles.
( My husband worked third shift and, I worked first. with five kids in the middle.)
The Lord was calling my husband to get his life on the
right track and his "FAMILY".
So he rededicated his life to Jesus.I didn't
understand what he had done. He started telling
me he was praying for me,and our marriage.
This was all new to me. I felt uncomfortable.
Let me tell you the power of prayer. Everybody
was praying for me, and I felt a tugging at
my own heart.There was a void inside of me that
I couldn't fill on my own.I realized that I
needed Jesus in my own life.No matter what good
deeds I had done I wasn't going to heaven.
I needed to simply tell Jesus I was sorry
for the things that I had done through out my
life. Jesus died on the cross for me, to take
away my sins.All I had to do was put my pride
away and ask him to take over my life. He came in
and did house cleaning in my life.Jesus too can
change your life. No matter what you are up
against, no matter what you have done, or where
you have been in life, Jesus can and will
do house cleaning in your life, and give you
peace you have never felt before.
I Know that the Lord has forgiven me." He cleanses them
all away by the blood of his son".
Though my family went through some very trying times
and we are still growing together again as a Family.
I must tell you through all of this each and everyone of our precious,
beautiful children has excepted Jesus as their Lord
and Saviour..Thank you Jesus for this gift, for
we will all be in heaven together.
Now I have to tell you that when you truly
accept Jesus into your life he will bless
your socks off, so get ready for Life in Victory.
...How gracious he will be
when you cry for help!
As soon as he hears, He
will answer you.
--Isaiah 30:19, International Version
