About ten years ago, I was not a Christian and I did not even know the true meaning of becoming a
Christian. My husband of twenty some years passed away. I had been raised Catholic, but had fallen
away from the church. I was not attending church; saw no real reason to start back. Until struggling
with the loss of my husband, my next door neighbors invited me to a Gospel Singing at their church.
I really said that I would go but kept trying to figure a way out of the commitment without lying.
Well since I couldn't come up with a good reason, I went and Betty Jean Robinson was singing that
night. The people of the church greeted me with such warmth and love that I kept going back and two
weeks later I accepted Jesus in my heart and have never been the same since.
Four years after the death of my husband, I remarried a Christian man that attended the same church.
I was pregnant and I miscarried and lost the baby. One day a couple of years later I came home from
work and found a note from my husband. He had just walked away from our marriage and he had
credit cards that I did not know about and they were in my name which he proceeded to run up. The
Lord brought me through the divorce and protected me from the evil that my ex had planned. God is
so faithful. Then last year on June 18th, 1999, I lost my job after twenty five years of employment. The
factory closed due to bankruptcy. On June 2l, three days later I fell and broke my ankle so badly it
had to have a plate and screws put in to hold it together. I have not worked for almost 1 year and I am
completely debt free. Praise God.
I am going to Vocational School adult education classes to learn computers with hope that I will get a job.
My schooling is being paid for. I am so blessed and cared for. He is faithful in all areas; His word is true.
His word says to count it all joy when trials and tribulations come our way. That is very hard to do
sometimes and I wish I could say that I do. I once read that "our adversities are God's universities." The
adversities in my life have caused me to have to rely and trust more completely in His provision and care.
I love Him with all my heart, and sometimes I stray from His path, but He is always waiting for me to
return to His open arms.
If you, the reader of this testimony do not have Jesus in your heart, please make a decision to invite
Him in your heart today.
Praying that you Know Jesus as your personal Savior, because if you do I know that I will meet you
in the Hereafter!
God Bless You,
