My Testimony III

My Walk With Christ

Following Christ has been a reality for me, my goal is to make heaven and to make sure that others around me do so too through the Grace of Christ Jesus my Lord.  this passage I live by, without it I don't know what would have become of my faith in Christ today.

Isaiah 49: 8-11,8  Thus saith the Lord, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;
9  That thou mayest say to the prisoners, Go forth; to them that are in darkness, Shew yourselves. They shall feed in the ways, and their pastures shall be in all high places.
10  They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them, even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
11 And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.

Earlier on, while walking and working with Christ I was falling in and out of sin and  repenting and, asking for forgiveness from preventable sins was like a daily routine for me  but one day this passage in the Bible struck me...  Acts 17:30 God overlooked people’s former ignorance about these things, but now he commands everyone everywhere to turn away from idols and turn to him.* 31 For he has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed, and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead.” making me realize that I can only the play the fool so much, God is not mocked, I can't keep taking His grace and mercy for granted as I was, and it was about time I surrendered completely to Christ there was no other way for me to go but the way of the Cross and there and then, I promised God to serve only Him forever and I have never gone back on my promise in Jesus Mighty Name Amen (Not that am perfect  but I took a stand and pledged my allegiance to Jesus Christ).

Then in 2004 I heard the voice of the Lord say to me an giving you a new name the Lord gave a new Name "Hanna"  the Voice said "you are now my Hanna I was like what! Hanna? why Hanna why not Deborah the Judge, "after fighting with the Holy Spirit about it the Lord said go and check the meaning of the two and when I did check it out I was glad I was "favored" by God and blessed by Him.

Time went on and The good Lord instructed that we get married because I was so scared of marriage,  don't ask me why? We Got Married am now living with my husband. We are learning daily in our walk with Christ and the Holy Spirit has been our Chief instructor all these years. and in all our trials and tribulations our God has been a Great God toady we don't beg for food to eat we can afford the basic things of life and God has continued to  show us  his marvelous mercies that are new every morning... Amen

Also, I have been privileged to encounter  Christ in many different ways over the years, in my dreams and visions and He has kept on reassuring me of His Saving Grace and mercy.  for all you skeptics out there...  He is Alive and He showed me one day His pierced side... the White garment he was wearing didn't cover the pierced side but there was no sore on it. Folks Jesus is real and He is coming back again to judge the Earth. Hallelujah!

finally I would say having the opportunity to present this testimony of my life to you today as in obedience to the will of God has given me much joy and am grateful that I could only give a glimpse of my life to you and hope to get to know you my friend more in Jesus Mighty Name.

Today my father is calling on us to come back home that he needs us that we are the family he has, because his people abandoned him when he became poor but he still lives with his new wife of  13 yrs with their two sons., and by the special grace of God , I try to do what I can for him from time to time... but we ve moved on.

Yours in Christ Service

  1. Thank you for a well written, honest and uplifting testimony. May God bless you richly.

  2. Far too many confidently say that true miracles no longer happen. I hope they are given an opportunity to hear your testimony. For here you are: still wanting to believe in the love and mercy of our Heavenly Father after all that you have endured (so far); and if that is not a miracle: I don't what could be.

    For it truly is as it is written: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all--how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: "For your sake we face death all day long;
    we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. {Romans 8:28-39 NIV}

  3. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful testimony. Your heart & your love for God shows through out your writing. God bless.

  4. Wayfarerjon, thanks and Godbless for taking time to go through it.
    am greatly, humbled and I give God all the Glory in Jesus Mighty Name Amen.
    Thanks for always stopping by.

  5. Thanks Fishhawk, I live by these passages, the struggles of daily life continues. But on that we have been made strong in our faith to hold on to God andHis promise he will never fail Hispeople He promised me great things in Lfe am holding on to His promises nothing else, cos what I see around me is discouraging but God givesme hope through Christ my Savior.

  6. Thanks Given55, God is all I have. the whole system failed me so I decided to give Him my all and He has never failed me.
    Godbless you are so kind

  7. Dear sis,

    Thank you for sharing your testimony! You've gone through much!

    I find your testimony uplifting -- despite all that hardship and suffering, you clung on to the Lord and He has not let you down, because He is faithful.

    Your faith in the Lord for His providence is an encouragement.

    Some who might also be going through the same things as you did might have cursed and abandoned God, but you didn't.

    I pray that your testimony will be a light for those going through trials and tribulations -- trust in the Lord, and His faithfulness and His goodness shall see them through.

    You're a blessing, sister. May you continue to walk in His love. My greetings to your husband too -- what a man of faith!

    God bless you both, and Shalom!

  8. Amen Brother Isaiah that means a lot to me, I tell you God has brought me a long way from where I used to be. now Am no longer the begger but the giver so I praise God for His awesome Mercies.
    thanks for your prayers and Godbless

  9. Wow, I thought your new name and my middle name had the same meaning. My name is Tamera Ann. I always thought Ann meant "gracious", but you've shown me it means "favored grace." Thats interesting. My first name means Date Palm Tree, which is a symbol of being victorious and upright, and palm branches are used to honor Kings, espescially You know Who with.

    Thank you so much for sharing your dreams with us. When other Christians share their visions it gives me confirmation that the Lord does speak to us through dreams. You know Christians who do not believe in those "gifts" tend to think we're crazy... Some even say, what, the Lord speaks to you? He's never spoken to me.

    Not even my own pastor believes in this gift. It is frustrating when we are limited by what other people are or aren't willing to believe about the Lord. He's so awesome!

    Thanks again for bringing this testimony to my attention. It's awesome to see how the Lord has worked through your life.

    You're an inspiration.

  10. Tamera, you are also an inspiration to me. and please do print out the testimony and share with as many people as you can and may God's Name be Praised.
    as for the gifts of the Spirit they are only blind to recieving the gifts and you shouldn't try to convince anybody, when you warn them let God convince them in His own way, its always the best.
    Ignorance to the word of God is the problem. Joel 2:28-29 28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
    29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

    with this passage the power of God is with us daily only reach out I tell you.
