My Testimony As God Intended.
I planned to give my testimony today in church. I wanted to share how God had kept me for forty-five years and kept my marriage for twenty. That was my plan. But as perfect as my plan seemed, it was not to be. It was not to be because I guess God had other plans. And guess what? You, reading this were part of his plans. Let me explain.
I promise, I did not plan to be late to church today of all days. I know that testimonies have to be submitted early. But thanks to the missing car key and the almost thirty/forty minutes it took to find it, my family ran late and by the time we got to church, testimonies had been read/said. I was crushed. Still, I managed to thwart the devil as he tried to steal my joy and I did have a lovely day with my family. Many, many messages and phone calls came through but it was while I was talking to my sistafriend, Uche Ilodianya this evening, that I heard God very clearly saying to me: You can still share your testimony, you know. I was like, 'How?' And then he said to me 'Share with those who read your blog'
I am at a place where I don't second guess God. How do I know if it is God? Well, if what I am about to do will bless another human being then I know it can only be God. The devil never wants to bless any body. He never wants the good that God has done broadcast. So I was sure it was God and so here is the testimony I would have shared today in church and it is, word for word as I wrote it on the 'testimony form'. I pray it blesses you.
I just want to express my deep gratitude to God for giving me life and sustaining me for 45 years. Today, 26 May 2013 as I turn 45, I know it is ONLY God. I also give him all the glory for twenty years of marriage (celebrated on 01 May 2013) and three wonderful children! No one can share in God's glory for this. No one! And so I prophesy over the life of the one reading this now (in my church, when you give a testimony, you end by prophesying over the lives of the members of the church):
You will not die! You will live to see your children's children. You will fulfill purpose and your home and marriage will be founded on Jesus Christ alone. Therefore, it shall stand and be a true reflection of God's Kingdom in Jesus name. Amen!
My dear one reading this right now, say a louder AMEN!!!!!!
Yes, today is my birthday and this is my testimony!
As God intended!
P. S. As I did this, I fought off the voices that were asking me how this blog was giving any 'new' information. Many who come here already know this, the 'voices' said. The voices made sense but I have come to learn that many, many times, the 'voices' make sense. But God makes 'truth'. All I can say is that I am on the 'truth side'.
