My Testimony

"See you in church on Sunday" said H

So, there I was.
As a child my family did not attend church. But I found my way along to a Friday evening youth group. Church was not pushed, but every now and then they had a Bible Study which I thought very weird. After maybe two years one of the girls said to me "See you in church on Sunday".
Being smitten with this young lady, though I doubt she ever knew it, there I was on Sunday, sat at her side, front row seats. Took a while for me to realise church was not a club, gradually I heard the gospel; Jesus died in my place so I could become one of God's sons.
When I was 15 at a New Years Houseparty I finally made a commitment to God.
Passing phase?
Nope, that was way back in January 1977.

Wow. I am still here.

Amazing and a great point for PRAISE.

Bad health, 13 or 14 addmissions to hospital and losing my job. In 2001 I was chairbound, rarely sleeping in bed 'cos of breathing difficulties. The computer and internet communities were an absolute life saver. Remember talking the night through in one christian chat room many times. My Dr reckoned I may last untill winter 2001/2.

*Grin* It's now 2012, been workin' a random week (2½ days shop work, plus other voluntary work). Getting around under my own steam. Every time I am ill - and get better, seems I'm stronger than before." I wonder how long that can continue?

I won't dwell on that question, but contiually give thanks to God for strength surging back into my body.

Praise God indeed.
This is really an addition to my Mini Testimony, for now I want to SHOUT about it.
I arrived at the Chest Clinic, as I have done for the last 34 years, well in time. I know many of the staff.
My aim at this appointment was to get the consultant to further lower the doseage of one of my drugs - after all I am feeling sooooooo much better these days.
Not only did he agree to this further tweak in medication, I have also been signed off from the hospital. For the first time in 34 years I am soley under my GP's care.
My one regret was that I did not boldly attribute God as being a major player in my getting heaps better process, I timidly mentioned him as an afterthought...
Still, there was a minor flicker of a smile from my Consultant, indicating either - 'Another Religious Nutter' or 'Well, belt it out, man! Give God all the glory he deserves.
Father God, THANK YOU. Amen
