I met the LORD back in June '94, via a VHS Video entitled Jesus, based on the Book of Luke, my youngest brother and his wife always stayed at my home when they were in our local area and my home was grand central at the time, 4 children/all the friends and family would often be there it was hectic to say the least, but this year my brother said before I leave you have to watch this video with me, I said ok your on, and as the time came I saw for the first time in my life, The MOST Beautiful Person I'd ever met, so to speak, I cried so hard watching all the beautiful miracles he did, and how compassionate He was to all, even those who so badly treated Him, and I couldn't believe in the end He gave His life upon a cross to save us, nobody loved me like that, that they were willing to die for me, and please don't misunderstand that I was so to speak the center of my family loved dearly by my parents and siblings, just seemed to me, as long as I was preforming some deed for them I was in their good books, my life had been a hard go I left home at 15 yrs old to escape my parents at the time had fallen away from the LORD " seventh Day Adventists my dads side and on Mom's a Catholic Mother,, but we did not grow up knowing about God or His Son Jesus, so to escape the alcohol abuse and fighting of a home life I left and then of course not being knowledgeable about the world, and I soon became and young mother age 17 ten days after my 17 birthday, so ...you can imagine some or I might write a book here :D, I prayed the prayer at the end of this video of Jesus, and with all my heart, and so things began to change a bit, and for the first few years of my new life I was hungry to know all about this God and His Wonderful Son Jesus, I was in the Word every chance I had consuming it and when not able to read turn the pages I had picked up a cassette bible too, and then also music cd's with the scriptures in song...and then BAM! out of the blue my whole life went upside down I was out on the streets talking to everyone and anyone about jesus,just before this: and all 4 of my children went through life and death experiences and then my 17 years marriage down the tubes and lost everything, and fall apart, continued to pray for a time but life got so busy I had to work 3 jobs and try finish raising my 2 children still left at home as well as driving, my one son had been in a fatal snowmobile accident and his friend perished that night and 3.5 years of surgeries to put him back together, it was more then a human being can stand ...or so I thought at the time, but God was so good! and merciful and I fell or maybe it was by His purpose I think now, so I can learn deep compassion and to LOVE without judgement, however after 13plus yrs of living like an unsaved person I have sinned and had no one around to help me understand how we forgive ourselves when we fall into a sin, and so I said God I know You say if I confess You forgive, I believe You do, but how do I forgive myself, I no longer trusted in myself my decisions so I went to drinking and tried to suicide many times and many ways, I felt lower then Judus Iscariot, and so slowly this past 2 yrs I'm done so much repentance and asking forgiveness asking if He still loved me and would want me still, and I received Is 41:9, after many weeks of no sleep and bitter tears sorrowing in my deepest being, I am here today, and I've been back in the Word everyday praying well I'm still slow at that., but I do need help from all who can offer any as I desire to grow to catch up the years I lost so to speak so I Hope for people here to be blessed every way, and that His Peace passing all our understanding guards your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus, for enduring strength and Joy unspeakable...in Jesus Wonderful Name <3
