As most of you know I am former Amish. I was 21 yrs. old when I converted. I felt like I got off the leash. I got into partying and drinking and had no idea where I was heading. I sure had my share of problems. At one point I was like I might as well enjoy life while I can. I couldn't figure out why things were going wrong for me. I felt like giving up and just living my life like I wanted to. To me that was the most negative thought I had ever had. That must have really hurt God's feelings. God created us in his own image. It hurts Him to see his children go down the wrong path. God loves us. He might not like what we do sometimes but He sure loves us.
I praise God everyday for how He touched my heart. It seems like He reached down and rescued me from trouble. God had a plan for me. I started going to church with my husband and two little boys. Now I am a born again Christian. I got baptized. We go to church every Sunday and Wednesday night. We are in a thirteen week "Experiencing God" class. I have learned a lot in the last four months. God has blessed us in countless ways.
I like to stay focused on God and watch where He is working in my life. It's amazing what God can do. Just when you think you can't do something like making a payment that is coming up, God reaches down and helps you. Isn't that awesome!! Last night my husband came home and handed me three hundred dollar bills. I looked at him and asked him what is was for. He said whatever you want to do with it. I asked him where he got it. He said someone gave it to me and it was a gift from God. All I did for that money was pray and ask God to help us. We didn't work for that money; it was just a blessing from God.
God works miracles. John 15:5 says, I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. This verse is so true; it means so much to me. All you have to do is talk to the Father and He will give you everything you need. It makes His day when he looks down and sees that we are studying His word and looking for wisdom. God is our light and if we follow that light we know we are on the right path. Jesus does not want us to lose the joys of the next life by focusing on the pleasures of this world.
I hope that my testimony can help someone make changes in their own life and start following God. He has been good to me in so many ways that I want to share it with others. May God bless all that read this!
