  5. A Journey in Life

"A Journey in Life that
Increased My Faith"

 I started on a journey in life that increased my faith in God. It all started with growing up in a Christian home with six sisters and three brothers. 

Our parents were soul mates. They respected us as children and never said or did anything inappropriate before us.

We went to church on Sundays and ate dinner with our Grandparents. My father died when I was seventeen and my mother never remarried.

Engaged and Married

I got engaged and married a Deacon from my church. He served God, and we attended church about three times a week. Something changed him, and he became bitter and started to do drugs, and became a womanizer. 

I stayed in the marriage for about ten years, hoping he would commit his life back to God. My faith looked up to thee for help and answers. 

I became bitter towards him because I felt he wanted me and not God. 

  • "My flesh and my heart failed: but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." (Psalm 73:26, KJV)

A Test of Faith

I knew God was taking me to another level, but I could not see the picture. Then, I met a friend from high school who had also gone through a divorce.

I was trying to fix my broken heart after a failed Pentecostal marriage. Our friendship was brief, and I found myself with a child. 

Physicians told me that I was high risk and the child and I were seriously in danger. I thought of God and the faith that had never left me and asked God for my child's life and my own. 

I committed to God that I would live for him forever and raise my child with him as our Savior. Today, my daughter is a 31 years old Christian leading others to Christ. 

  • For, I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed to us. (Romans (8:18, KJV)

The unbelievers saw me as an unmarried woman raising a child alone; I was exposed and rejected by many.

I prayed that at least one or two would hear my story and give me a second chance. So I testified about my life with God, but somehow many turned it for bad. 

Only Jesus

Only Jesus knew my suffering, and he made me strong. Today, my daughter and I are trying to start our own business.  

  • And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. (2 Timothy 3:15, KJV)
  • But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save many people alive (Genesis 50:20, KJV).

God will make a way; I thank Him for the pain and rejections because I learned to trust Him even more.

A Journey in Life that Increased My Faith

"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!

Loyalty and Faithfulness

True loyalty springs from the heart and is wrapped in love. It is often in our most private moments that true loyalty, or the lack of it, is made known.
