Though I Walked Through The Fire There Remains No Scars Or Stench I Am A Diamond
Though I walk Through The Fire I Will Not Smell Of Smoke
By Bonnie Jennings 1/18/2013
Many years have passed from childhood where I pledged my heart to God alone on a starry night in winter in East Texas.
Many years later a lady minister at the altar called out to the "real Christians," under that tent on a cold night in Florida.
"Come forward! You who want all He has to offer.
The total depth of The Lord, and 'The Baptism of Fire' is yours by prayer.
I promise you will not know Him as you should without this Baptism."
And I, a young woman of twenty-six, found my legs jumping up from that bench and running down to the altar.
"Yes! Yes! Please Lord, give me all you have to give. I want the best. I want to do great things for you. Please, use me Lord."
Oh... I would think twice before accepting that prayer...
A drastic life changing prayer The Baptism of Fire. Think twice before hell breaks loose.
It has been thirty-five years since my baptism.
Three marriages dissolved
Losing two children
My male child abducted from a park and ... The worse scenario any could imagine...
Next... My home burns to the ground with animals inside
Then, my other child abducted from my home.
One year and two months later she returned a week before Christmas. The best present I ever received from the Lord...
That same child sadly was in a major car accident and lay in a coma for two months...
And more... And more...
But, here I Stand. Without a stench of smoke on me.... Or ashes from my fire. Yes, I cry sometimes..
Truly, thankful for my Lord and His loving mercy, never let go of me...
He has trusted me and found me trustworthy.
I am a diamond.
