"I just let Jesus do His thang!"
I personally "like" Jesus. With, or without, the little button, I contact Him daily!
But it wasn't always like that...
I was baptized in 1984, shortly after my wedding engagement had been called off from a man I thought I would spend the rest of my life with. My soul mate, my "once in a lifetime" as we used to refer to one another, had been with another woman. In my mind, life was over.
Phil, a pastor friend of mine came along side, hugged me when needed and then literally drug me to church. He said I could be saved there. I had no clue what he meant.
Years later though I wasn't acting like a very good Christian. I surely was not following the "rules" I had learned at the church I had been attending. "Really", I thought ... "who were THEY to tell me what to do?"
By 1995 I had dabbled in drug and alcohol use, undergone a divorce, aborted a second child (conceived in rape), had a lengthy relationship with a man separated from his wife, miscarried his child, considered suicide twice and was raising my own son alone. "Really" I thought ... "maybe I should go back to church. Nah, I bet the Lord would never forgive my sins now!"
On my knees in late November 2000, I cried out to Christ like a coyote howls at the moon."If you're TRULY there" ... I screamed ... "rescue me before I take my own life!" I can't really describe what came next, except...
Jesus just did His thang! And the rest is miraculous history!
Since then, I've had this amazing love affair with Christ. And the best "gift" He ever bestowed upon me (second to my beloved son Davis and my family) is this beautiful Kingdom Assignment of helping individuals and families wounded by abortion. While my friends collect diamonds, fancy cars, vacation homes and other material objects... I am blessed to collect the stories and testimonies of those healed by the Great Physician. Healing is worth far more than the finest stone.
Healing from abortion is PRICELESS!
In July, many of us will gather in Long Beach, California to pray, strategically plan and further implement the Lord's plan for the healing of our nations. Healing that will repair lives and relationships, restore marriages and unite families. Healing that will bring a woman, or man, out of darkness and show them the mercies of our Lord. Healing that no one person can offer up, sell, bottle or distribute through online social networks or e-commerce stores.
Healing that comes when you "like" Jesus.
