Hi, I am just a country girl married to my Preacher husband for over 48 years, he was my high school sweetheart, and the love of my life. We have 5 grown children, 11 grand children and 7 great grand children, Psalms 127:5 "Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate." So we live a very happy and useful life for our lord.
Psalm 128:1 & 2 "Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that
walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine
hands; happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee".
This is why I am so blessed, and I want to share my blessings
with you. Coming to know Jesus Christ as my Saviour was the
start of the blessing flow. He is your answer to all of your
problems. He is my Rock; He is my joy; He is my everything...
Oh how God has blessed my family ... poured out His blessings
from on high over and over, so much that it overwhelms me
sometimes. God is my refuge and my Saviour, my help in time of
Barbara's Testimony of Saving Grace
I was saved in July of 1974. Praise God!
I remember like it was yesterday. I just kept thinking "Well, I
am not that bad, and maybe when I get older I will get saved.
I have too much living to do now...." Sound like familiar lies
from Satan? Well he had me pretty blinded. I had been a
terrible person, deep in sin, and so as not to give glory to
Satan in any way, I will not expound on these sins. My husband
had gotten saved, and he kept telling me ,"Oh the Lord is
coming back; and I am going to Heaven! And, Honey, you are not
going to be able to go unless you ask Christ to save you."
Well, I went two weeks watching, keeping my distance from his
Christian visitors, and wondering how the Lord could save a
rascal like my husband.
Then one Sunday, we had gone to Church, come home,
was in the bedrooms napping but me.
I was on the sofa in the
living room. I never napped there.... See, God had it all set
up from the beginning! Well, anyhow this man came up to the
door known as brother Jack. He had led my DH to the Lord, and
he started talking about the Lord and asking if I were to die
today was I 100% sure I would go to Heaven. I was only 31
years old at the time! Did he know something I didn't know?
Was I sick or what? And of course I had no where to run or
hide; he had got me, and the Lord was working in my heart big
time by now. I could feel the heat, and feel my face flushed,
and still wanting to run and hide. Then finally I just broke
down, the Lord broke through all barriers, and I cried out,
NO I AM NOT SURE!!
Jack said, "Wouldn't you like to be sure?"
"Well yeah," I answered; so he read many scriptures, and I
could feel the Lord tugging at my heart. I kept thinking,
"no, no, no," and finally a peace came over me; and crying
and exhausted, I bowed my head and asked Christ to forgive me
of my sins and cleanse my heart from all evil, and to come live
inside of my soul.
"Oh Jesus!" I cried out, "save me, save me now, Lord!! save me!"
And guess what? He did! Amen and amen, and I have never been
the same since! Oh I love to tell this testimony! I always said
Satan thought he had me all tied up, snug and fast asleep. His
big mistake was he left me alone; and when he came back, well
GLORY, I belonged to another Master! I had made Jesus my
Saviour, and I belonged to Him now. Praise God!! Don't you know
how upset Satan was at that, and wow, did he start to attack us
then; he surely was not going to let us be happy in serving the
Lord. But greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world!!
And my God has proven it over and over again through my
Well, even before I was saved I can see His
mighty hand leading me. I think the smartest and the dumbest
thing I ever did was to promise God my children if He would
make my husband whole again. My husband had been a Rock
Drummer, and into many drugs. He over-dosed one night, and I
thought he would never come around again. But GLORY!!! little
did I know what the Lord had in store for us. But I was a lost
woman calling out to God to help me. I knew I would not give
myself, but I offered my children in my place (so foolish I see
now). Well, God did make my precious husband well again, and I
did keep my promise to God. I sent my children on the Sunday
School Bus faithfully for over 3 years, and then they went to a
little Church, only about 3500 members, ha ha. Through this
loving ministry God sent the man out to our home, and he told
us about Jesus. Oh what a Saviour is this man Jesus! And the
rest of the story is history.
Praise God for saving this wicked old soul. And for those of
you who do not know, my husband is a Pastor now! God delivered
him from ALL evil, changed his direction in life, (this is
repentance) completely. SO ladies with lost husbands, hang in
there! If God can save mine and make him a preacher, HE surely
can save yours, too!
I will post daily, and try to update daily, hopefully I can make
a usable blog for the glory of our lord Jesus Christ.
I am a Born again Christian Woman,Preacher's Wife, Mom to 5 grown children, Nana to 11, and great grandma to 8. I love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul and mind.
I just want to be all he wants me to and to live a simple and very peaceful life serving him daily. I want to be a blessing to those around me, and let my lord shine through me. We use the KJV Bible only, we believe it is the holy word of God, written by inspired men of old, filled and being led by the Holy Spirit of God.
