Part 1 BLOOD OF THE LAMB, WORD OF THEIR TESTIMONY
{When was it God touched your heart?}


To be a witness, one testifies to the truth and one can only testify to what he or she has experienced. I was brought up on the word of God. My parents both loved the Lord and they would pray and read to us a lot. There was one thing I remember them saying that always stayed with me: as we began to grow up and leave home my mom would say, no matter where you are, no matter what you are going through, know that you can always call on Jesus and he will help you.

I got married at the age of twenty. I loved my husband with all my heart. Finally I thought I had someone who was all mine, someone I thought that I would be special to. I was in for a rude awakening. From the very beginning, he was unfaithful. He would take off and be gone for days without calling, and he would return without any kind of an explanation as if he did nothing wrong. When I became pregnant with our first child, we left one weekend on a Friday to go and visit his mother. Shortly after we arrived, my husband left and said he was coming right back. Well, he never came back. My husband left me at his mother's the whole weekend. On that Sunday night, my husband finally returned. I felt so degraded and ashamed before his mother. When we got home, when I stepped inside my house, I knew in my spirit he had had someone in my house. I knew in my spirit, my house did not feel the same. Everything that showed any indication that I lived there had been tossed into a hall closet. When I asked him about it, he replied, I had the house exterminated. He wouldn't look at me face to face, I think he knew some how in his own spirit that I knew the truth so he finally spoke the truth and admitted to what he had done and asked me to forgive him. This is just one episode out of countless others; it was destroying me to the point where I didn't want to live any more. I was so unhappy and I felt so alone. It seemed as though there was no way out for me. I began to think on the teachings of my Mother and Dad and I knew that I could never do anything to take my own life, they always taught us against things of that nature. So there I was, hurting and wanting a way out. Broken and not knowing what to do, I would go to bed crying many nights. Sometimes when I'd awake the next day, my eyes would be swollen as if someone had punched me.

Out of all my hurt and frustration, I called on the name of the Lord. I needed him so much. Out of desperation, I reached my hands out into the air feeling for him, I thought he would do something to let me know he was there. I thought just let me bump into you; I don't have to see you. I looked around the room and I waited, but nothing happened.

A few days and maybe a week or two had gone by. My husband was at work and the children were asleep. I was in my bedroom sitting on the side of my bed reading and thinking about the Lord. As I sat there, the Lord began to show me something, it was me and I could see me inside myself. Now this may not make sense, but I'm trying to explain it exactly how it happened. It was as if I was coming home, and once I was in, the Lord had me open the door to many rooms, as I opened each door, I saw that the rooms were empty. I began to run with haste checking every room and each time the rooms were empty. I became happy and joyous and smiling like a silly girl. Why was I smiling you asked? Because I looked for the crying and it was gone, I looked for the hurt, and it was gone, I looked for the frustration and it was gone. I smiled because now I could see the Lord heard me the first time I prayed, and he was there all the time. He came and did a great work in me before I even realized it. Oh I still go through things today, as long as we are alive in this earth we will, but what ever God left in my spirit in those rooms, whatever comes against me can't stay.
