My Walking In Truth Story
I love to tell the story of my walking in truth. So many people tell me that they have been blessed by some part of my story. I love to share what God has done in my life.
I was living in South Haven, Michigan where my husband Jim was pastoring a church. We had just had our baby girl, Andrea Hosanna. A sweet man in our new church had given me a brand new computer to help me with my homeschooling. I knew nothing about computers or the web before that time but in a matter of a couple days I had figured out how to surf and was lost in cyberspace for about two days before I remembered I had a family.
One really great thing happened to me at that time that would change my life forever. I stumbled onto the site called “Laine’s Letters”. God took me there I know and He began to teach me of the precious fellowship that I had not previously tapped into.
When I read the testimony of Laine and how she had promised God she would spend time with Him everyday if he would just let Gabe live- well, the rest is history, as they say. If you have never read Laine’s Letters you must by all means check out her site.
What happened to me next was that I committed to spending an hour each day with God in prayer and Bible reading. I also vowed to God that I would spend that time with him before the children got up in the morning. At this time in my life I was schooling six school aged children, and we also had a two year old and a newborn.
Well, if you know anything at all about how God works you know that a promise like that was sure to be rewarded in a big way.
At that point, everything in my life changed. I had trusted Christ as my Saviour when I was just a little child and had done some growing in my walk with Him but in looking back it was like comparing taking a walk in the garden to down hill skiing.
I began seeing the love of the Lord as never before. I began being more loving and patient with my family and loving to people outside my family as well.
I began seeing prayers answered as never before.
I praise the Lord for all He has done and all He continues to do in my life.
May He be glorified!!
