I am a 49 year old JESUS FREAK! While most would think that would be a negative title, not me. I am dedicated to serving my Father God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Daily following the way of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and being led by Holy Spirit. I jumped “all-in” while contemplating the death of my ex-husband, while he was in an 11 hour brain surgery in 2002. I sat staring at that hospital, unsure if he was going to come out alive, and He spoke to me. It wasn’t an audible voice but He spoke to my spirit. He told me I had placed men in the place in my heart where He should be. I knew that to be so true, always seeking the love, security, and acceptance from them and coming up empty every time. I immediately begged for His forgiveness and vowed, “from this day forward, no matter what happens to my husband, I will follow You all of my days and I will NEVER put anyone or anything in that place ever again.” THAT WAS A MIRACLE!!
Today I live for Him. I am moment by moment trying to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus. I am Mom to a great son, a BRAND NEW Grammy, a medical assistant, and an alcohol and drug counselor. I have a fur grandbaby named “Baby”, she is 11 years old though and is more senior than baby these days!
I am a very passionate person. I have a “loud” problem, no matter how I try to “keep it down”, I AM LOUD! I love, love, love to sing! Some say I have a good voice but mostly I just sing because it makes me happy , especially when I sing to the Lord in worship. I am a “hand talker” , tend to dramatize almost every story I relay, and for some reason I have a tendency to restate the same message like 4-5 different ways, my husband and sons LOVE this about me….NOT!! I have always had a “weight issue”, for as long as I can remember. As you can imagine this has caused insecurities, a feeling of being a misfit , and a horrible self image UNTIL! Until the Lord revealed to me who HE says I am and I finally believed Him. He gave me this verse and it is now one of my “life verses” :
2 Corinthians 5:17New King James Version (NKJV)
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
I prayerfully began this online ministry because the people I have known and come across need encouragement, they need hope, they need joy , but most of all THEY NEED JESUS!! They need to know and receive Him, His love and most importantly they need salvation and freedom from sin and death. So I hope you will visit with me here as I share my earthly journey and maybe by sharing here I can help you to be able to see His Miracle in the Mirror.
