All About GOD

All About GOD - Growing Relationships with Jesus and Others

This morning when I awoke, I decided to share a testimony, in my own humble way

 I have been prompted by God’s Holy Spirit to write one today.

 I have been a member of this site for app. 1 year, and I figured what better way to celebrate my anniversary (lol) but to give a small account of my life thus far.

When I discovered AAG, my life had hit rock bottom (or so I thought), I decided to ask  people to pray for me and my situation………(when I say “me” I mean my husband and I).

I posted a prayer request, but after reading what other folks went through, I just removed it. I then discovered there was a chat room, and that was the turning point in my life!!!!

This is where I met the most amazing people of God.

There are a few people who had made an impact in my life (and still today we have close contact with one another), they know who they are……………and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them from the bottom of my heart………..not only for what they mean to me, but for allowing God to use them……..they have no idea how my life has changed. At first I thought this was all some silly natter in the chat room, I though others have time for small talk while I’m hurting. Little did I realize I have forgotten how to smile, and I began to learn what its like to really laugh again.

I do not talk about myself or my life easily, so I thought it appropriate to put pen to word, and tell others that when I rediscovered this Jesus, I have not looked back since. It has been three years now, and I don’t ever want to go back, I just marvel at His amazing work He is doing in my life…..amid all this, I have also discovered that I need not live my life for ME alone, it’s about sharing the good news with others, praying and encouraging, and being what God wants me to do; and that is to display Christian love toward people, so if I tell loved ones on here to “hang in there” I’m merely iterating God’s word. It’s not empty promise………….GOD is real, and He’s here.

To those enduring the pangs of life, here’s my fav quote again “WHEN WE ARE DOWN TO NOTHING, GOD IS UP TO SOMETHING”

Every day is a new day, I’ve resolved to take each day as if it is the first day of the rest of my life. In my opinion, just waking up in the morning is a miracle in itself after having been “dead” to the world for some hours, I also know there are people who curse having to wake up, cos then they have to face their giants again, but God wants me to t ell you, that if you persevere you will be rewarded. And, oh yes!! People prayed for me, but nobody was really doing anything concrete to ease my pain…………it was me and God

One night I had a dream that I was climbing a mountain, (I am petrified of heights) . there were really two mountains, and I needed to get from the one to the other to reach wherever I was going………I began to panic and prayed, a voice told me to look down, and I saw the biggest footprints I’ve ever seen, and instinctively I knew it was God’s. I told myself “omg, this must be the way to Golgotha, where Jesus carried His cross, and if I walk in these footsteps with my little feet, I will be OK.  And suddenly an overwhelming calm filled my soul.

I walked in those footsteps till I reached the gap between the two mountains I had to cross………….there was a gate separating the one from the other, with huge chains and the biggest padlocks I’ve ever seen…………that’s when I woke up, I have yet to discover who's waiting for me on the other side, but I have a fairly exciting idea……………HE's waiting for me...............some day I shall get to meet HIM!!!!!!

My husband and I have made a pledge to let God direct each day the way He sees fit, and have rekindled our bond in the process,

I can see His wonderful work in my life.

My spiritual eyes were closed, though I served God, I didn’t give the plight of others a second thought, for that reason I shout “HALLELUAH” I’ve been given a taste of what its like to battle financially, physically, and spiritually now I can really relate to my fellow humans sufferers and also to the scripture where Paul cried out to the Lord; 2

 2 Corinthians - 12:7-10 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. rest upon me.

Today, I’ve cleaned out my cupboards, because those who with me in the chat room know I discovered a mouse…………I’ve taken out my “precious” table linen only to discover some of it was ruined………gnawed away, and I cursed the poor mouse……………as I was hanging up the rest of the linen that was usable, God spoke to me and said……………”my child, don’t worry about the things that’s destroyed, you have food to put on the table, and also dishes to wash”

If you don’t understand the meaning of…………Praise God in all things, this is one of it.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

We are all really so much alike! We are one Body! I could never have imagined the Glory of God until I turned to him.

May God Bless you Little SIster!
