A God That Makes A Way When There Isn't One : )
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your family".
God Changes The Circumstances!
I believe the best weapon that one has when talking about God is their own testimony. About two years ago I had an experience with God that I would never forget. I had a pretty normal life. I knew it was important to go to church and prey but I only did it when I was in the mood. I would prey to God when I need it a favor and he always came through and I thanked him and then I would continue to live life my way. You know us humans, we think we know it all and that we know more than God : ( So I guess in other words I lived life without taking God that seriously. But I always knew that he was there and that he was special and important but I guess I loved him in my own way. I thought that everything good that I had in my life was because I was lucky. I had a partner that loved me a lot and we had two babies, we had our own place and everyone was healthy and happy. I felt that I had all of this because I was naturally born lucky when it came to love and having a family so I took it for granted sometimes. Boy would I later learn how wrong I was. Five years into our relationship things started to get really bad with my behavior. I was not being so affectionate and sometimes just wanting to be my self and I even got to feel like meeting other people. Well my partner had been very patient with this "phase" that I was going through but at one point he had enough and we just started to grow apart. All of a sudden I noticed a dramatic change in his behavior and I confronted him and he told me that he met somebody else. When I heard this from him my world froze. I was devastated . He was always so emotionally attached to me and It always seemed like he had more feelings for me than I had for him. I always felt it in my heart how much he loved me and I always felt that no matter what we went through we would always be together. I loved him and I wasn't quite sure what was making me feel like this and act like this. Even if I had feelings of being by myself or meeting other people I wasn't really going to do it. I got really depressed and couldn't believe that this was happening and at that moment I realized how much I actually loved him because the pain that I felt was like nothing I have ever felt in my life. I almost felt like I couldn't breathe. so it is true that you sometimes don't know what you have until you see it gone. I couldn't believe what I had done especially to our children when they asked me about their father. They were so little but they knew something was different. Realizing how much I love this person, how my behavior was by pushing him away for so long, realizing what a special family I had and now he is with someone else and I wasn't important anymore was the hardest experience. I couldn't turn to anybody but God. There are times in your life that you realize that no body in this world can help you but a miracle from God. And I realized that right away due to how critical things were. He wanted absolutely nothing to do with me just with the kids. This relationship seemed so far gone that only a miracle could help me. Everything seemed to be going so well with the other person and I was no body anymore. I had said sorry for what I had done and wanted to make up and I expressed all my inner feelings to him but nothing worked. He was gone. I didn't interfere with his life. And he never heard anymore from me. We just crossed words when we spoke about our children. I decided to look up on the computer testimonies about miracles. I read a lot that night and I notice that those people had so much faith and they were able to receive these big miracles from God. And I said to my self, "I don't have faith like that and how does having faith feels like? well later that night I was busy doing dinner and all of a sudden I felt something big in my heart and It felt good and it felt like something was telling me that everything was going to be okay again. I felt so much hope and there was not a trace of doubt in it, you feel absolute peace and tranquility, completely convinced that God listened to your prayers and the desires of your heart will come to pass. I said to myself ..."THIS IS WHAT FAITH FEELS LIKE!!!". I thanked God so much because I knew that he had answered my question from earlier in the day. Blessed be God!. A couple of days later while talking to God I heard his voice in my heart saying " BELIEVE IN YOUR FAMILY" It was the most beautiful experience because I was getting a confirmation from him that his plans are to restore my family and I had always asked my self how is it that people say that God speaks to them. Well the heart recognizes that particular voice and let's you know that it is him. From there on I put my family and all my circumstances in his hands. I spoke to him about how much I needed him to forgive me for he had giving me a beautiful family and I thought that I was just lucky when in reality he is the one that gives us EVERYTHING good in our life. He is the owner of talents, gifts virtues, luck, blessings, prosperity and everything that is good. I told him that I wanted everything to go back to the way they were. And since I had learned, by reading his word and listening to others that preach about God and his goodness, that he can make things bigger than we ask him, I preyed that he makes everything better than before.That he blesses us with twice the love, unity and fidelity that we had before. I looked up prayers and prayed them with all my faith and my heart, I watched programs that spoke about God, I prayed the rosary, I did Novenas and pretty much my whole life revolved around him. He Spoke to my heart in many different ways and even though in the natural I wasn't seeing anything happen I had decided ever since I heard his voice speak to my heart that I would fight the good fight of faith. To make a long story short my family was restored within 8 months. God taught me so many things through this heartache that at the same time it has been the best experience that ever happened to me because it brought me to him. what I learned the most was about his unlimited love, mercy and power. To always trust him no matter what is happening because we are not going by what we see but by faith. And if you do your part: praying from the bottom of your heart, meditating on his word, declaring victory over your life and over those negative circumstances, offering to fast, putting God first in your life, he will do his part. You take care of the possible and he will take care of the impossible. You have got to trust him and look for him with all your heart because he will take you further and give you bigger things than what you imagined. That's what he did for my family. Not only did he work on my soul but he worked on my partners soul too, he took that other person away from our lives forever, took every negative situation and turned it into an advantage for us and he healed our open soars. The love, the peace, the stability the trust, the fidelity and everything came back into our lives like if time had never passed. Everything is much better than before because now God is the center of our lives. We want to follow his commands and please him because now we know that we owe our lives and everything we have to him. We got married at our church and we are a happy and blessed family living together with our children like God intended it to be AND ALL HONOR AND GLORY GOES TO OUR ALMIGHTY GOD WHO IS TELLING YOU TODAY THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE TO WHOM BELIEVES IN HIM. GOD BLESS YOU. Amen.
