Oh where to start with this blog post!! As I think I mentioned in an earlier post we have started a new church. We also go to Alpha and at Alpha at the end we split up in small groups, well in the small group one night April told a bit of her story and her prayer need. After she did I told her I really appreciated her sharing because all though her story was different than mine I felt we may have some of the same feelings. After group she asked if we could exchange numbers and maybe get together sometime. So we did and that next week we got together and we spent I think over 4 hours together. We both just spilled our whole entire stories with each other. It felt great to get it all out there. She is an amazing woman and I was in awe at how far she had came. Little did I know that April's words would change my life forever. She told me about a woman she got set up with at church, Karen Goss. So I found her on facebook and friended her. Saturday March 2nd I sent her a message asking if I could meet with her sometime and she said sure we can get our calendars together, or Ill be at the church today. So I hurried and got my shower and got ready and went to the church to meet her. We went into her office and I was nervous and had no idea what to do or say. So I asked her now what? She said say whatever you feel or want. So I just started spilling my story to her. After several Kleenex's and a lot of talking came the AMAZING part. Karen asked me if I had accepted the Lord as my savior, I said well I was baptized when I was 13, she said no have you accepted him, and I said well no. She asked me if I wanted to right then, I said YES! So we prayed and prayed and so Saturday March 2nd I accepted the Lord as my Savior and every since that day my life has changed forever! I had to leave the church to meet my hubby to look at more houses to rent. The very last one we looked at was THE ONE! It is beautiful and we decided to rent it. Prayer #1 answered! When we got in the car after looking at the house I had a text message from Daric asking if just him and I could meet Sunday and talk!!! We met and it was incredible, we decided to put the past behind us and start a new life together from that day on and I have had him over 2 times since then and he's going to start coming every other weekend! Prayer #2 answered. I think I said before that I had such a hate in my heart for Daric's dad, so I really thought the forgiveness with him would come later down the road. Well when I took Daric home after our talk Sunday, I had to talk to his dad to see if he could come over for supper that week. I was nervous because I wasn't sure how I would react. He came outside and we talked about Daric and then he apologized?? So of course I apologized also. We decided to leave the past behind us too and get along from now on, for Daric's sake especially. I went to give him a forgiveness handshake and he grabbed and hugged me (he may have broke a few of my ribs LOL) Prayer #3 answered. All this is with in 2 days! Then that night I contacted my Mom and asked if we could meet and she said she was thinking the same thing. So we decided to meet Wednesday afternoon. Then Tuesday morning we got a call that we got an offer on our house, we counter offered and she took it and we close on the house April 5th!! Prayer #4 answered. So Wednesday came and I met with my Mom and we talked for a long time and we also decided to leave the past behind us and move forward, and I think our relationship is going to be stronger now! Prayer #5 answered. If I hadn't seen all this with my own eyes I wouldn't believe it but it is all true. God is GOOD and the power of prayer is amazing! Ever since I gave my life to God I have had nothing but good things happen to me. I have not felt depressed at all. Now I know Satan is just right around that corner waiting to mess me up but Pssh Satan you ain't got nothin on me!! Gods got my back!! I am so very thankful that God lead April and Karen into my life. Thank you Lord and knowing your there is all I need!
