I was brought up in the Roman Catholic Faith & attended Roman Catholic Schools Like all good Catholic kids I knew how to say the rosary, how 2 pray for the dead (those waiting in purgatory) & did all the good things expected of a well brought up Catholic child & went to church every Sunday In fact I went to church everyday while I was attending boarding school I never owned a Bible until I was well into adulthood & even then read it rarely because I didn't understand it. I had never read Romans 10:9; had read about the story of Nicodemus but never understood it.
I had recited Credo "I believe" which says 'Jesus was crucified, died & was buried, rose from the dead ascended into heaven & is sitting on the right hand of His Father' without grasping it's significance. After I got married @ age 22 I stopped going to church.
I just lost interest. Whenever I was asked why I stopped attending church I would shrug & say during my boarding school years I spent most of my childhood in church praying daily morning noon & night & that I needed a break.
In hindsight I now know that the reason was that I felt empty. This was not obvious on the outside but I felt it deeply inside me.
I could not put a finger on it but I knew something was missing. It is amazing how God showed His mercy towards us during those dark years.
He looked after us all those years even in our ignorance. Although our lives were full of challenges my husband & I managed to triumph over every obstacle.
That's how good God is. Over the years I began to feel restless.
I tried to go back to church but it didn't last. We attended Roman Catholic Churches in different localities but this also didn't last.
My husband & I began accepting invitations from born-again friends & family to attend their churches. I thought they were all weird.
Then in 2007 a distant relative by marriage of my husband invited us to Christ Embassy Church in Randburg. The service was very different from the ones I had been to.
I still thought it was strange but when the altar call came I responded by raising my hand & moving to the front to accept Jesus as my Lord & Saviour. Up to this day I cannot tell what made me respond then when I had heard but ignored the same call many times before.
I can only think that it was part of God's plan that I be in this Ministry. Also difficult to explain is how the Spirit spoke to my husband & I simultaneously & he got up to receive Jesus as his Lord & Saviour when we had not even discussed this.
I recall that after the prayer of salvation I felt as if a huge load had been lifted off my shoulders. My life has never remained the same as Pastor Ose had truly predicted earlier that morning.
Now that I'm born again I know who I am in Christ Jesus. My Bible is my daily companion & the Word of God my guide.
With the Word of God in me I know I can never go wrong because it is a lamp unto my feet & the light unto my path. In my line of work I have to make decisions that affect the lives of people daily but I have nothing to fear for I know that the decisions I take & my judgments are saturated with the anointing.
I have been living a life of the supernatural & miraculous consistently. Glory to God.
