It still totally amazes me how I could go from deep, dark depression
to this utterly lightness of being! I am so happy now, my friends
and co-workers are amazed by the difference, and believe me, I tell
everyone the reason is God!
I had been in a deep depression caused by stress and family problems
(divorce, trying to raise two boys alone, financial problems.) After
one son got into law trouble and the other in-house suspended at
school, I realized that all my problems could be traced back to when
I left God's path.
He never left me though, in fact He has been working on me for about
25 years!! Putting Christians in my path, TV shows that spoke to me,
you name it, He did it. My dad started going to church a few years ago
and through his persistence, I had attended with him and got to know
The day I had my revelation, I called the pastor and talked with him
then took my teenage sons to him so he could explain salvation to them.
I did not raise them in the church and begged their forgiveness for
that, among other things. About two days later I dropped to my knees
and asked God back into my life and it was just like someone had turned
on the lights in a dark room! The darkness of my depression was GONE!
I walked around for 3 days just saying "Thank You, Lord!"
Since then, I joined my dad's church (he's a Deacon, now!!) and one son
is very involved with the Youth group and has been saved. My other son
is in a state youth facility and through a prison ministry (praise God
for all prison ministries, pray for them!) has also been saved!
Since my rededication, my sister and niece rededicated, and 2 nephews
have been saved. Now, we are all praying for my mom, another sister,
her children and my brother-in-law.
Thank You, my Lord, for saving me, for Your Gift to each of us, and for
Your Son, that we might spend eternity with You.
Amen and Hallelujah!!!
