My name is Sharon and four years ago my husband and I almost lost our son to drug abuse. It was a Father's Day when he screamed for help and our nightmare began. Let me say this, and we know it to be true, drug abuse is pure evil and will destroy a family unless you take it to God in prayer. Guilt, anger, fear, hopelessness- the evil attacks again and again. I believe with my whole heart that the only thing that saved our son was prayer. Heaven knows that everyone we know was praying for our son, prayer was the bridge that kept him safe in more than one incident.
One particular morning, after a rough night, on my knees, I begged God to just let me know my child was saved and if he died that day I could rest easy knowing I'd see him again. Selfish of me, to ask for some kind of sign, but my pain and fear was so great it was almost unbearable. I knew he was a good kid, being controlled by something terrible, but I needed reassurance that God was in control of the whole mess.
Several days later a gentleman was leaving the library where I work, turned around and came back to me. I did not know his name, and he didn't know me or my family situation, and he surely didn't know about my prayers. He asked if I believed in the "gift" or prophecy. Taken aback, I looked him in the eye and said "I know God exists, if that's what you mean." He seemed relieved and then said, "God just told me to tell you that the thing hanging over you and your family for over a year now, He's taking care of it and you don't have to worry." He held out his hands to me and I began crying, thanking him, knowing he had no idea of the importance of what he'd said to me. He began saying "give God the glory, I'm just the messenger." We stood together for a minute, praising God- and then he left. What a merciful God we have, to ease a burdened mother's pain. I felt so insignificant, so unworthy of God's love, but there it is. Now I understand, even in my small human capacity, how much God loves us and when we completely surrender all to Him, we will be blessed. In my hour of need, the answer came.
You should know that when I told this story to my son, husband, daughter, family, our lives began to change. I won't say we didn't have some setbacks, but every setback for our son turned out to be a blessing in disguise. We just kept reminding ourselves, everything in God's time, not ours. Our son decided he wanted to go into law enforcement, completed his training, got a job, met a wonderful girl and was recently married. Only the power of God could save our son, without a doubt I know that fact to be true. I also believe that God's plan for our child is bigger than we can imagine, and by telling our story I hope that someone will benefit, maybe even help save another lost child. We are so blessed and I am thankful for every day, every minute, for God's love and mercy shown to this family.
I thank Jesus Christ for everything he has gave up for me every thing I do. I pray he knows how much I do appreciate him. He has really changed my life so much. I love to read the Bible, to read everything about him. When I read I like to go into my room lock the door so it is silent. I read the Bible pray to Jesus Christ. I talk to Jesus Christ everyday, there is not one day that passes by that I dont talk to him. I enjoy it. I ask him to forgive me and to answer prayers. I love him so much I appreciate everything he does and what he made me now. In Jesus Christ's name Amen. Elizabeth
My name is Rhonda Kanaday and this is my testimony. I gave my heart to the Lord and have attended Victory Tabernacle since I was 9 years. My Dad was attending Victory Tabernacle and I would visit with him. I was attending another church at the time but I had a longing in my heart for something I did not understand at the time. I knew something in my life was missing. At the age of 13 I made a full dedication to the Lord and chose to attend Victory Tabernacle. Then at the age of 20 I let the devil trick me and did not attend church for a number of years. I remember those years were the most miserable of my life. I always had a longing to serve him.
I have since came back to the Lord and made a rededication. Now for the past 12 plus years I have been serving the Lord and would not have it any other way. The past year has really been a test for me and I am learning to lean more on the Lord than I ever have before. My husband has now gone on to be with the Lord. I continue on with the knowledge that no matter what is placed before me I can lean on him to see me through.
I often think of the poem footprints in the sand even though we may not think the Lord is there he is. He just may be carrying us. My favorite scripture is "I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me" I know that I can do all things no matter what journey in life I have to take he makes me stronger.
I hope my testimony will encourage you to seek the Lord and serve him. It is also my hope that you see no matter what you go through in life, maybe you are facing sickness, depression, death, an addiction of some sort drugs or alcohol or maybe someone you care about, a loved one or a friend may be facing these things. Just know you can be an over comer when you give your heart and life and turn everything over to the Lord. Remember you can do all things through Christ and it does make you stronger.
