    Marital Status:
    My journey was long before the Spirit of the Lord came upon me. I lived many years that were filled with emptiness and separation from God.
    In the later years of my life I became lost beyond recognition.
    The adversary was leading me down dark paths that tested my will in many ways. I had lost all dignity for who I was and pushed past all of the boundaries of anything good left in me. I had become truly dead inside.
    In a moment of contemplation I found myself being taunted with a terrible darkness. A darkness so powerful that it began to trick my thoughts. I could feel it next to me like whisper in my ear.
    This was end of me. This was the beginning of my faith in God.
    The Holy Spirit called me from the darkness. My mind was overwhelmed, in complete awe. The Spirit delivered the message "Seek God"...
    I would like to say it was a smooth beginning but it wasn't.
    I tried to seek God on my own for a few months. I went to Celebrate Recovery meetings at a local church. I was not familiar with scripture and did not understand what it meant to be saved.
    I just sat in the back and listened.
    One night during an open group with my heart pounding out of my chest, I cried out for help. The only emotion I could communicate was complete loneliness and confusion. I was fighting with everything I had to reach someone.
    The group began one by one with messages of understanding and hope. Then one spoke out above the rest and asked me if I had been saved. I responded honestly and said I didn't know what that meant. He explained that Christ can come into my heart if I believed He died on the cross for the sins of the world.
    My friends still giggle to this day at how fast I flew up out of my chair and cried "yes"!
    On November 22, that will have been three years ago. My entire world has been changed by that moment.
    I am a humble beginner in this amazing journey. My mind is filled with desire to know God more and more every minute of my days.
    I have found a great church with fellowship. Bible studies and books are my most favorite places to grow in my knowledge.
    My favorite authors outside of scripture are A.W. Tozer, C.S.Lewis, and J.I. Packer.
    Mostly Tozer.
    I have so much more to learn. I am looking forward to being a participant in this forum.
    I love to hear all insight of the Word. I am grateful for all words of advice or critique.
    May God bless all of you.

    P.s. Thank you for your patience..
    I'm still learning how to navigate this site.


    Love God Love people
