My heart fluttered like Neil Armstrong bouncing around in moon dust the day after I reconciled with Jesus. I seemed to be weightless even though human eyes would say otherwise. I inhaled pure oxygen and walked with great purpose. One small surrender…one giant leap into freedom.
My finger selected Christian music on the radio as I opened my Bible to the Book of Psalm. The words of the songs and Bible actually made sense to me! The day after my decision was the first day of a new found passion as I could not get enough of God. I soared with new spiritual wings and…I was digging it!
Within a month I, too, was on the Lay Renewal team sharing my testimony at other churches in Texas and as you well know…word travels fast as The Houston Christian Women’s Club asked me to become a speaker for their club. I traveled from Lake Jackson to Anahuac and everywhere else in between. (Know where Anahuac is? I do!) I soon found out I was not as alone as the enemy told me I was. Many I shared with gave their hearts to Jesus too. One of the greatest highlights of my life.
In my own church I became the Mother’s Day Out Director as I directed over 30 teachers and 100 children. Amazing how I lasted five years in that same position but loved every minute of it. Had the opportunity to work with children, teachers, and parents.
And if all those blessings weren’t enough…the Lord gave me an open door to teach high school girl’s Sunday School. Again, thought I’d get my feet wet and ended up staying in water up to my chin for the next 15 years. God sweetly surrounded me with young ladies I could learn alongside with since I had skipped out of church when I was a teenager.
In Joel 2:22-23 the Lord promises, “I will give you back what you lost to the swarming locusts…it was I who sent this great destroying army against you…once again you will have all the food you want, and you will praise the Lord your God, who does these miracles for you…”
Give God praise today for giving you all the food you want…and more.
