Both, my incredibly amazing husband and I, believe that there is power in God’s word and in Jesus‘s name, when we had gotten married ♥ on November 7th 2010 we decided to truly follow GOD, Jesus Christ and his ways. It’s been an incredibly awesome adventure. Now that we’re expecting it’s even more of a Blessing!

(Before our son Emanuel) In the mornings I occasionally find myself, during the work week of course, waking up around 7am, listen to the WORD & Continue to catch up with work and work on my Art! After listening to the WORD I pray for God to give me the strength to accomplish all that I am meant to accomplish each day. In the past I tried waking up with the Hubby, but now that I’m pregnant, unfortunately, it’s difficult waking up at 6am! In the morning, and my loving Hubby has such a kind heart that he doesn’t try to wake me and allows me to sleep peacefully. Sleep is Golden, peaceful amazing sleep, well money just can’t buy that. ♥

Currently we’re super excited about expecting our first child and I’m going to be a Mommy so my energy hasn’t been what it used to be but it’s all so very worth it! I love working on my business. I work on purses, wallets, and handbags, I’m a  painter as well, so when I’m not working with beautiful fabrics, textured or otherwise and prints I’m painting on Canvas. Then, before my husband ♥ gets home, I cook dinner. Squeeze a little bit of T.V. or I’m at His baseball game or at my Home Studio! Yes, still working. Before we go to bed we read our Bibles, rejuvenate our minds on the positive and fall asleep to amazing worship music. ♥ Just a little bit about me. ♥

(Current story coming soon!)

Here’s a small video clip of me… hehe, excuse the quality 🙂

MY TESTIMONY

My Heart, right now is pounding with what I am about to write.

Lord Strengthen Me with your Spirit, Help me with the right words to share my Story and where you have brought me out from! I pray that All who need to see this see and Read it! And if it can help their lives I pray that It strengthens them, & Helps them in Extra-ordinary WAYS!! In Your ALL MIGHTY NAME LORD!!! AMEN!

Lately, I’ve been having a tugg at my soul to share my story…It’s very difficult for me and I am Extremely embarrassed by things that have happen to me in the past and the things I have done, and I cling to GOD‘s Holy WORD!

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2 Corinthians 5:17

You see…I have been sexually abused as a child, sadly by a family member. I have been raped, and I was violently abused by my first husband, yes, Domestic Violence. (Before GOD graciously blessed me with my Soulmate whom I am now happily married to, GLORY BE TO GOD THE MOST HIGH! GOD works WONDERS!)

I have done horrible things that I am truly ashamed of, some of which is sex, drugs & alcohol. I have self inflicted wounds, a 4in scar on my left forearm that I made unto myself with a 2in scar next to it, which looks as if I tried to take my life; the Scars go vertically not horizontal. I have scars from other self inflicted wounds all up and down my left arm. These scars were a cry for help. Sometimes we don’t know how to call for Help.

JESUS CHRIST SAVED ME.

I am a witness of his unfailing Faithfulness his LOVE & MERCY!

After I left my abusive relationship with my first husband, I had what they called a’ psychotic break’. I literally lost my mind.

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. Psalm 23:1

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

It was a tough & a lonely road, I am & was thankful that I knew enough of JESUS, some from T.V. that I caught when I was younger flipping through the channels, ‘The Passion of the Christ‘, & from the few Christians I met along my travels.

I find it detrimental to Continue to pass the GOOD news of Christ!

Before my “Psychotic Break” I had asked an Open Christian who shared his faith openly and I asked, “How do I get saved?” I was around 22 or 23. (I’m now 28 years old YAY! ) And He lead me to the prayer of Salvation! But I still didn’t consider myself a Christian, or saved.

Now, I see, I truly believe once you say the Prayer of Salvation, GOD starts working in your life, and you ARE HIS!

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. John 10:28

I believe when you Pray the Prayer of Salvation the tables turn.

GOD is working Behind the Scenes, even if you don’t get it, even if you Don’t fully understand. I believe, He calls us all.

Your life becomes His, YOU, become His Child, His Priority! Amen.

But you have to make the CHOICE! You have to Want GOD!

If you want something different then depression & the addictions that are destroying your life.

Pray the prayer that I have Posted on the Bottom of My story (scroll all the way down).

It’s a Journey where you must come to full surrender to GOD ALL MIGHTY, Lover of your SOUL.

CONFESS Your Sins, to GOD.

BELIEVE that He exists and He is with you!

ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST into Your HEART!

Last but not least, Study the Holy word of GOD!

I knew Enough to call on his Name, To call on GOD!

I was later sent to a psychiatric ward. I was taken from in front of my family, I don’t remember much but what I do is so embarrassing and took a lot to get over. I was then handcuffed unto an ambulance and admitted to a hospital which latter admitted me into a psychiatric ward.

I thought I was not ever going to come out of that place. It was horrible, and for the first time I saw and heard the existence of demons and how they have these souls in bondage, how doctors give pills and just lock them away.

I felt Fear. A Fear that is so deep so utterly deep that it Grasps at your soul as though it is DEATH!

NO ONE CAN HELP YOU.

ONLY GOD.

YOU have to make a CHOICE.

Either you let the FEAR over take you, OR you RISE Up with GOD, and All that he has given you.

I had nightmares I thought I would never wake up from. I thought I was going to die in these nightmares or locked in a cell in my dreams and placed in a coma in the physical world! I was literally battling for my SOUL!

Then, there was this one nightmare that I woke up from, before I completely woke up in a flash I woke up with a view of Jesus Christ with a Crown of thorns w/ blood, in pain, and a woman’s voice in Spanish saying “La mano estas sangrando” (meaning: The hand is bleeding) I thought of and saw his hands and the blood from his hands nailed to the cross, And I woke up to find my hand had fallen asleep. But I knew it was his Blood.

And you want to tell me that Jesus doesn’t save? That He doesn’t heal?

JESUS CHRIST was the only one that Could save me from such Darkness and HE DID!!!

GLORY BE TO GOD THE MOST HIGH!!!

I was blessed….that I knew a little bit of the GOSPEL.

This is why it is IMPORTANT to Spread GOD‘s never Failing WORD!!!

JESUS SAVES

JESUS HEALS

JESUS is VICTORIOUS!

My Family Calls Me a Miracle

I believe GOD, JESUS has Called me, to EMPOWER Women & their significant others with his WORD. GOD’s Word is Healing.

GOD is LOVE

You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, Psalm 30:11

Then maidens will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13!!

Thank YOU LORD, Thank YOU JESUS!!! THANK YOU GOD!!! FOR YOUR MERCY ENDURES FOREVER!!!! HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

After coming Home from the hospital I began receiving this mail from a Church who sends letters about GOD. One day as I was walking over to the mailbox, I saw this Group of Butterflies. As I looked closer the most MIRACULOUS beauty I have ever seen, I seen on this day.

Many times in the past I’d picture GOD as an Angel and I under his wing as an Angel as well in Heaven, (^_^ hey it was between God and I, and I thought I should share 🙂 ) during times of difficulty or when I needed some strength. On this most Memorable day I began to focus on one particular Butterfly lightly flapping it’s wing and to my surprise, amazement, another Butterfly underneath it’s wing.

GOD is Amazing, ALL POWERFUL. ALL KNOWING. He is LOVELY and Caring!

GOD is Naturally, True, BEAUTIFUL!

SALVATION PRAYER

Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness. I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin. You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved. Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.
Amen.

    • Hello Kathy, Let me rephrase what I had written “we will meet soon”. At times we can get ahead of ourselves. Last night I was reading James chapter 4, And actually studying it. I just received a revelation.

      13Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:13-15

      So let me say. If it is the Lord’s will, we will meet. AMEN! Hallelujah

      Thank you Lord for revealing wonderful things and for teaching us daily on the best way we can live which may Glorify you Jesus Christ. Thank you for this revelation and I hope it helps others through their walk of faith.

    • Thank You! I really appreciate your kind words! Pray for me, I would be greatly blessed if you do. I Pray that GOD continues to Bless you! & those around YOU! I truly appreciate Your kindness! Much Love!

      Hosanna in the Highest!

  4. Wow, this is so powerful! Thank you for your transparency! I know God will continue to do great things through you. May your testimony continue to be used as the light on the hill, that shines brightly for God’s glory. May people come to know God’s love through your experience and be strengthened by the words that you share!

    In God’s Grip of Grace,
    Sarah

  5. My Jesus…… I thank Him for His saving grace. So blessed to read your testimony and your selflessness to share the Gospel with others that they too will seek His face and receive salvation and an eternity in heaven. God bless you and your husband. God bless your family as they see you as a Miracle by the hand of Christ. His angels have been with you. Your storms, your past and shame is a living example that anyone can make it if they just trust the Lord and lean not unto their own understanding. He is MORE than capable to bring us out of darkness and into the light as a new and transformed creature in Himself.

    (singing to myself ) This Little Light of Mine……

    You have become transparent. Nothing happens by chance. There is a season to everything and the Lord placed it upon your heart to share your story. The Holy Spirit has guided you. You just took heed. Thank you for your obedience. I pray this reaches many. I cling to His promises for your life and that of many.

    He is the Way. We are the salt of the earth. May we always go out sharing our story and the Gospel that wil lead us in truth to live a life pleasing to the Lord.

    Much love, prayers and blessings to you dear Sister,
    Terra

    • Hallelujah Praise GOD! Glory be to GOD the most High!!! I do very much feel as though, I’m in a New Season. I’m so thankful that GOD is awesome! That He Guides us! I’m so honored and thankful to HIM! Yes, Jesus Christ saved me and it truly is important to Share the GOSPEL! GOD is LOVE! JESUS is POWERFUL! ♥ It wasn’t easy and at times I still get thoughts like “what are ‘they’ going to think of me” But I asked the LORD. ‘LORD let me KNOW deep within me that I am meant to place this story, my testimony that it is from YOU!’

      The next or a few days later (I can’t remember fully) I received a dream (or vision) of one young lady that was on the verge to take her life away, and instead read my Testimony and was saved! Because of JESUS!!!!! WHOOOO HOOOOOO! If GOD through me only touches or saves 1 life, its all worth it! Indeed! ♥ I was saved and if Jesus can save someone else from my shame and His sacrifice. Well Honey, LIFE IS GOOD! And GOD is AWESOME as always! ♥

      “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” Romans 8:28

      One of my favorite scriptures and sooo True! ♥

      I did it for GOD, because if it was up to me I’d tear it down! But GOD wants it there And I’m so thankful for His Mercy and Grace! ♥

      Hosanna in the Highest!!!
      For His Love and Glory,
      ♥ Linda M

      • AMEN AMEN & AMEN!!!!! Standing in prayer with you and for you as well as the yound lady whom could be impacted by reading your testimony and giving her life to Christ. The internet is effective. We never know who we will cross paths with. I say that because when I was on another blog site, a woman was battling depression and decided to Google two words together and she came across my blog. God sent her to my page. I am just a mere vessel humbled and thankful to be used. Never thought I would be blogging because I had never heard of it. I love to encourage people and I thank God for the gift.

        I never could have foreseen myself doing this especially when I am “computer” challenged and I don’t have a desire to learn new things! ( my old computer died, so my hubby bought an iMac and that totally messed me up! I did not want to learn how to use it! God had other plans and Tylenol became a dear friend to me over time. I HAD A HEADACHE for about 2 weeks because I had to learn how to blog as well. ) Let me say this: we never know what God has in store for us. The Word tells us that His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways. Amen! Long story short, when I was on FB, a childhood friend of mine and I connected after going years of losing contact. He never knew the Lord. He was agnostic. Got himself into trouble, went to prison for embezzlement and lost his wife . Tried to hang himself and then he heard a voice. It was Jesus telling him that He loved him. From that time, he KNEW that Jesus was Love and that he ( David ) was loved by this God that he questioned was real. It was my friend who took the time to explain to me the blog thing and how certain things worked. Hubby and my kids helped me to learn how to manipulate the new computer! God stripped some things out of my life so that He could use me for his service. I was reaching hearts on FB as I connected my blog but I had to be taken away from the distractions on there. I don’t know if it is just for a season but had I not taken heed, I just wonder how many people would have not received a word from the Lord through me. Sometimes it’s not always about taking away pleasures even if they are for doing good,but it’s about obedience and giving up things we like just to see who really matters most. I may have missed some things here but I hope you get what I am saying in all of this. I don’t want you to ever feel ashamed or even uncomfortable about this though you know did it out of obedience. Through your obedience, a life if not more could be saved from an eternity of hell. Now if you look at it that way, your feelings over your past is like a fly to a life perished for eternity because you chose to be selfish. The devil is LIAR! Put him in his place and that is up under your feet with the power and authority given by Christ Himself!

        Hallelujah!!!! ((Hugs to ya!))

      • WOW! ♥ Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Amen! GOD is POWERFUL!!! Great Story and Message! I do catch your drift, I understand. You hit every point! and AMEN! ♥

        Hosanna in the Highest!!!
        For His Love and Glory,
        ♥ Linda M

    • Amen! Amen! and AMEN! Praise GOD! Thank you Jesus. Morgan you have truly touched my heart in an unbelievable way! I’m happy to be following your Blog as well! LOVE ♥ GOD is Good! Keeping you in my prayers.

  6. GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so overjoyed by what I just read. God is truly a healer, deliverer, and most of all he saves and forgives of our sins….. We truly overcome by the words of our testimony. I have a similar testimony. I just thank and praise God for what he is and has done…. Blessings to you and your family!

    • Hallelujah! Praise GOD! Thank you Jesus! God is so Amazing! God Bless you too! I’m over joyed that my shame brought HIM Glory and Joy into your Heart on HIS Goodness. No matter what we think we have done GOD will always be there for us, and He forgives us no matter what. He’s OUR everything and Our strength. May you find Peace in the Miracle of Jesus Christ always, In Jesus Name!

      Hosanna in the Highest!!!

      Linda Mendible

    • Thank you so much!

      “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

      Thank you so much for reading ♥ It means a lot ^_^
