i was in a very bad car accident with my boyfriend i had at the time, it was a head on collusion and the driver in the other car died and the rest badly injuried. I was sleeping cause i had no sleep the night before and my bf only had a couple hours of sleep, so i was laying down on his lap and i woke up in the grass across the street, i saw our truck on fire and i panicked, i screamed out for my bf scrared that of the worst, if he was dead. The lady next to me told me hes alive an on the other side of the street. she didnt tell me how bad he was hurt but later i found out he was badly injured and lucky to be living (i give thanks to God for that) he had a brain injury, alot of bones broken in his lower legs an a bone popping out, failed lung, both jaw bones broken, an his nose. and i only came out with a broken collar bone and some cuts an bruises. i was only in the hospital for 3 days while my boyfriend was in for maybe more then 1 month. i just thank God that everyone is ok and hope the family of the dead lady is hanging in there. there were no charges filed and no one went to prison. This is deffinatly God's work and im so gratful to him.

I am 50 years old and for the first 15 years of my life I live in a very tough situation that included poverty, physical, emotional, social, and sexual abuse. I had a father who was an alcoholic,
he was illiterate because he never was sent to school. He was put to work in the logging camp where his family lived. He met my mother who was dating his brother and she ended up marrying him. My mom came from a good family and it was hard for them to see her with this man and his family who were all drunks and lived in tar paper shacks. My mom had 5 children in less than 5 years, and the last 3 of us were 11 months apart. My earliest memories are of living in a one room tar paper shack, My father would take off and leave us with nothing, my grandmother (mothers side) did all she could do to make sure we were OK. My mom would leave my father and move us all to my grandmothers house and would after a few months bring us back to my father.

By the time I was 5 had been hospitalized due to abuse, My father's youngest brother was very mentally ill and lived next door to us and would abuse us. One day when my father was gone he raped my mother in front of us kids with a knife. He would sexually and physically abuse us kids and we lived in terror of him all the time.

My brother Ray was 11 months younger than me was mentally retarded and was institutionalized when he was 8. We felt that he was the lucky one because he got out.
Although my mother hated my father she would not put our safety above her own selfish desires and stayed with him..

My sister, 2 other brothers, and myself lived this double life. My mothers brother would come and get us and bring us to my grandmothers house where she would have cloths for us and would give us hair cuts, clean us up so the rest of the family would see all these cute little kids. All my childhood pictures show us in all our nice new cloths and no pictures were ever taken in the other place. I made a decisions when I was very young that I did not want to be like my father's family.

One other thing, back in the 1960s many of the kids who were impoverished were sent to special schools because in many situations the children were socially maladjusted because of neglect. My 2 brothers, and my sister were sent to one of these schools. But thank God I was sent to regular school.
Because of this I always felt like an outsider in my home.

God also gave me a wonderful older man who my older brother and myself worked for. He was a wonderful mentor for us. My mothers 2 brothers also were great to us.

By the time I was 15 years old I was a mess, I felt like I had no way of escaping from this the pain and agony in my soul. I had started drinking at 12 and smoking was going down a road to destruction. I had no way of dealing with the darkness that was growing inside me. The only thing I could think of was quiting school when I was 16, that was my great goal of my life. I had nothing beyond that to look forward too.

Then in the winter of February 1975 these three men came to my house from the church that was about 4 miles from my house and invited me to come to a youth group. That day my older brother and myself were just going to talk to them to mock the preacher boys. Something happened inside of me that day as they shared about Jesus to us. Then next Saturday 2-16-75 they came to my house again and one of them ask me what my greatest need was . I said I need help to get rid of my hate that was in me. He said Jesus would help me to get rid of the hate that was in me. So I said I wanted Jesus in my life. We all got on our knees in that old house where I had suffered so much, where there was so much evil, and there I ask the holy Son of God to come into my heart and you know what? He did.
I felt such joy that I wanted to cry. I never felt like that. I was a new creation and I have never been the same since that day when I met my best friend Jesus.

Nothing change in my circumstances, but everything changed inside of me. I was the first one in my fathers family to graduate from high school. I was the first to ever get an AA degree in Christian ministry, I was the first to ever become a licensed pastor. Although at this time I am only a lay minister.

I saw my father saved in 1995, I saw my mom saved in 1986, I saw my grandmother (Mom's mother)saved. Last December, I saw my older brother saved, and I was blessed to lead my sister to the Lord last summer. I also have seen many other family members come to faith, and have received this wonderful salvation that come through Jesus Christ.

This past February it has been 34 years since I have known this wonderful Savior. I have found him to be so faithful to me over the year. I have stumbled at times, but he is always there working in my life, and He is helping me to continue on and finish my race that I have been given.

Maybe you have read this testimony and you want to come to know this wonderful savior and become one of His children. Maybe you have never understood the power of the gospel to transform a person from the inside out.

God has provided one way for us to be saved, it is through faith in the work of Christ on the cross.
His sacrifice upon the cross paid the full payment we owed for our sin. We can't do enough good works to make up for the wrongs we have done. We were born in sin. It is like an inherited disease with only one cure, that is through Jesus.
Talk to God right now and invite him to come into your life, confess that you know you are a sinner, receive by faith the cure that is for you.

For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son , that whosoever believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of god is eternal through Jesus Christ.
That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart he has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.
Romans 3:3, 6:23 10:9

Thank you and having survived many addictions,domestic violence, homelessness, and the "accidental" overdose of my 32 year old significant other(and father of my now 6 year old), I do know that God does deserve all the Honor and Glory. God is so awesome and has freed me of so much bad in my life. God bless you my sister in Christ!!!

God bless you too, my sister. All the praise goes to His glory. We must remember at all times that God our Father loves us and chose us to be His little children. His wonderful grace, mercy and peace is ours when we desire His will. He knows best.
Love you my sister, Catherine.

Bless you, Dianne. I felt strongly led of the Lord to share what He has and is doing in my life. No way could I have gone through the things that I did without first surrendering to the Lord. I wanted and continue to want His will for my life.
Love you, my sister

Virginia: What a beautiful testimony! It's a great blessing to hear how the Lord sustains people through some very difficult situations and keeps them filled with His joy. May your walk with Him become ever more intimate and may you experience the complete healing of our precious Lord Jesus. God bless you for sharing your heart.
Comment by ♥ Virginia Porter ♥ on March 16, 2010 at 10:24am
I want to start with expressing my gratitude for your faithful prayers and encouraging messages. They have sustained me.

James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Brief history:
August 2, 2008 our son went home to be with the Lord.
Ten months later on June 5, 2009 the love of my life, my husband joined our son in heaven.
Six months later I was informed that I had breast cancer.
During pre-op testing, it was discovered that I had suffered a heart attack and every test on my heart was abnormal. We know that cannot be true because Jesus lives in my heart. :-) Surgery performed on March 1.

I will undergo 6 weeks of radiation therapy, five days a week.

Now the best part!
I Thank the Lord for It is Jesus and me plus the precious people that He puts in my life to walk beside me.

Through it all, the peace that surpasses all understanding has been with me and will be with me. Jesus has said to He will never leave me nor forsake me. Grace and mercy have been my constant companions. I am saved and a winner and have nothing to lose. One glorious day I will see my Savior face to face and thank Him for His saving grace. I will be united with my love ones for all eternity. The Lord has held my hand and at times carried me all the way. I love Him and will praise Him every moment that I live.

Love you.. Keep looking to Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith. He is all and everything we will ever need in this brief journey here.
