I want to welcome today my guest writer and sister in Christ Mandy!
I was just thinking about my life and how blessed I am and I remember the 1st of Feb. 2010...the day my life CHANGED FOREVER! It started off as the worst day of my life. My husband (at this time a VERY jealous and untrusting man) had started the day off by waking me up when he got home from work to ask me why one of his co-workers were asking about me and the kids. Like I knew something?! All day long he beat me down emotionally and by the time he left for work that night I didn't want to live anymore. I had decided that I was going to end my life but then God steped in!
It was through the use of the internet that He reached me. I was getting ready to say good bye to the world when a friend that I hadn't heard from in over 10 years suddenly sent me an IM...It simply said that she didn't know why she was writing to me just that I had been on her mind all day and she wanted to tell me that I was loved. She told me that even though she didn't know what I was going through she knew that I didn't have to do it alone. She told me about Jesus and what He could do for me...His child to help me through this. After talking to her I hit my knees and I gave myself to Christ.
That was the day that I was born anew. I became a happy housewife instead of feeling like my husband was trying to 'repress' me and all that stuff! The more I prayed, read my Bible, and did my best to be the woman of God that I was meant to be...Especially in regards to the way I treated my husband...The better life seemed. Even the bad days. I also noticed that my husband was starting to change as well and he is now a wonderful man of God. Of course there is still room for us both to continue to grow and we will do so hand in hand. God has put us through some test sense we have both given our lives to Him...hubby breaking his ankle, people trying to cause problems for our family, a miscarriage, and our newest son being born with a deformity with his eye lids...but through it all we were calm and it all brought us closer together instead of pulling us apart because we have learned that God is in control and that there truely is no reason to worrie about our needs. If we do our part in following His way He will make sure we always have exactly what we need!!!
