    Lord. This is a random experience. My husband was out of jail and now out of church. Smoking fake is what controlled him this time. I call synthetic weed, fake. The first I noticed is I didn't recognize his spirit. His voice changed, his ways changed. As craziness began to run...

    I grew up Apostolic Pentecostal,

    but as growing up my parents left church. I went back to church, but I never stayed in. My ways of living changed: tattoos, piercings, curse, and wearing pants. Now, as a 22 year old, I wish I could change that. I know I can change my wardrobe, take out my ear piercings, and...

    As a child I remember going to church

    and singing about God. I enjoyed the songs but I assure you that I did not know the God in the songs. Many wrong choices brought me to a concrete step, I was a homeless drug addict. While sitting on a step, I called out to Him..... Jesus answered me that day. Overnight my life...

    About 4 or 5 years ago, I found me and my boyfriend at the time, (now my husband) sleeping on my friends couch. Continual thoughts of suicide, nothing will ever change kept creeping upon me. In those days, I questioned if God was really there. One morning in complete despair, I...

    Early on a Monday morning,

    I was praising God for such a wonderful service the day before. My mind was racing, I am not sure I had ever felt so wonderful before. I am not sure how long I spent thanking and praising God, but after awhile I heard the Lord say, "Am I not the Lord? Can I not do better?" I...

    there is NO better feeling in the world than KNOWING this. I know, I know, I know that He loves me. He delivered me from the bondage of this world. He loved me when I was unlovable.... He is with you now, why not talk to Him? Happily His....

    who shut the door in your life. What matters is you know that God can open any door at anytime. After God delivered me from drugs, doors began to open. Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I would be a jail minister. Then again, why not? My husband was in jail and...

    I haven't always lived

    as an Apostolic Pentecostal. As a matter of a fact, I tried to look nothing like one. Let's face it, we all know who "they" are. No makeup, uncut hair and dresses. When the Lord became "real" to me a few years ago, I saw things in way I had never seen them. All I can say is, one...

    Quick Bible lesson. Jesus is God.

    In the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John where it says to be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, you must know the name!! Jesus is the name. For instance, in High School we learn that Father is a title. Son is a title. Holy Ghost is a title too...
