A Word From Brenda

And He said unto them,It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

Hope Of Salvation!!

There was a time before I was saved, that I believed in Jesus, and in Gods Word, I also believed in the power of the Holy Spirit! I had a knowledge of these things, I grew up around them...but my life was my own. I waivered back and forth, going to church on some Sundays, and heading to the park most others. I would ask my friends, "Do you believe in God?", and most of them would say yes. I wondered why, if we were all believers, we we're living that way!?!! One night I told them..."If Jesus comes back tonight, you got to know that He's NOT coming by here ...We're Not Going! I was so frustrated. I wanted so much to live for the Lord, but my life was so far from Him. I look back now and see, God was beginning to draw me to Him. I was longing for His Presence in my life, only I didn't know how to find it.

I Corinthians 1v.18, 27-31
For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound (confuse) the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; And lowly things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom and righteousness, and santification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.!!

A couple of years had passed since those "party" days, I found myself sitting in the office of a Pastor who I had never met. I looked through the yellow pages to find someone for counseling. As I told him of the anger and the fighting and the tears in our home, he turned to Galations 5v.22. He began to explain to me very simply about the fruits of the Spirit. He showed me where it said Peace...Joy.. Love..Patience, all the opposites of what I had in my life. When he said to me "you're wanting Christian fruit from a non-christian home", it just hit me. All the years of going to church as a child, reading my Bible, those years were far behind me. My life at that time was empty and I needed to give my heart to the Lord. I said the "sinners prayer", and began to walk with the Lord one day at a time. Sometimes one hour at a time! Small steps at first, learning all the basics, daily reading my Bible, praying, finding a church. What an awesome time in my life!


It's a wonderful feeling to be watching and waiting on Jesus to return, and to know that he's coming back for you! I began looking at the clouds, God's Word had come to life for me. I had come to life! Now it has been almost 8 years since that time, and I still love to look at the clouds. My husband and I are involved in ministries through our church and in the community. We are currently preparing to be sent to Israel. God has truly taken that which was weak, and made my life into something strong and useful. A life filled with anger and hopelesness and given me Joy and a vision of spreading hope to others around the world! I am thankful for all that He has done in my life. Through all of the trials and lessons to be learned, he has always been faithful, and they have always been for my good.
Revelation 22v.20
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
