My 1st Miracle age 8
March 14, 2009. My 1st Miracle
I was born hard of hearing. Problem #1 for me.
I thank the Almighty God that my mother took us to a Pentecostal Church.
I was also raised in an abusive situation. My daddy was an alcoholic. Just a plain and simple alcoholic, but my daddy never shyed away from responsibility. He was a week-end drinker. Come Monday morning he was on the job. He fought in WWII, and it simple help mess up his mind. He was oh, so, such a gentle soul. He suffered from depression very badly.
On the other hand my mother was a very bitter, and cold woman. She plain had a mean strick in her a mile wide. Plain and simple.
I have 4 sisters. I had 5, but my oldest sister died March 12, 2002. No brothers and that is sad. I think my daddy may have been better off had their been a son. I don't truly know this, far only God knows.
My mother, from time that I can remember told me everyday. "I can kill you if I want to. I brought you into this world and I can take you out when ever I want." I guess along with the beatings she gave me for nothing. Just because she wanted too, why wouldn't she kill me.
Well, call me stupid, but I believed her. I really thought she could kill me. At any time. I was always very nieve. I mean very nieve. I guess it was because I couldn't hear. I never really new much of anything.
Well, when I was in the 3rd grade I got an F on my report card. I was scared to death. I thought this was surely the day I would die. She screamed at me for about 2 hours, about how stupid I was and what she would do to me if I didn't get it off the report card.
Well all I new to do was to fast and pray. And that's just what I did. I would go to a back bedroom get on my knees and open the bible and pray. I did this off and on, ( mostly on), till the end of the quarter. I was already doing the very best I could on my own.
Well I'm sitting there in the classroom waiting to take the test for the end of the quarter. Well low and behold the teach Mrs. Carter says " Gail you don't have to take the test today, your average is 97. I like to have fell out of my chair. No one was as shocked as I was. The other kids got so mad.
I just sat their and Praised the God. Silently of course, but I felt like shouting it from the roof top.
Let me tell you God did that. God. God did that for me at age 8. So I new at an early age we are serving a mighty God.
And now, these poor children today don't even learn to read the bible and pray in school. I feel sad about this, but it's just proof we're in the last days. They don't know anything about God or Jesus or the Holy Spirit. Thank God while my mother was abusing me she took me to a God fearing, Bible believing church. That taught me to Fast and Pray.........Try it.
