My Testimony - A Praise Item
I was raised and trained fearing God but did not have an intimate relationship in the Lord until a major set back in my marriage life, when I was at my lowest ebb, there I realized how He love and cared for me. My heart was on fire wanting to know God more and more and I wanted to tell the whole world about Him. I was the first re-born Christian in my family so I started sharing with my own family, parents and sibling’s families. To God be the glory, we all have our family Bible time weekly.
My heart did not stop there, I wanted to share Jesus’ love to all my office mates. I head the Human Resource of a government agency. I was able to get a hold of the small book - The Prayer of Jabez. I was prompted to start praying as Jabez prayed -
*In 1 Chronicles 4:9-10, we find a short prayer uttered by an obscure man: "Jabez *
was more honorable than his brothers. ... ' Now, Jabez called on the God of Israel *
saying, 'Oh, Lord, bless me indeed and expand my territory. Keep Your hand on *
me, and keep evil from me, that I may not cause pain!'*
I prayed Jabez’ prayer for almost a year that God will extend my tent. Indeed, God answered my prayer. I was instructed by our Office Director to conduct a training for all employees of our Agency. This whole agency of more than 300 workforce constituted 7 Provincial Offices. I went around all the Provincial Offices and after the training I shared the gospel. God is always at work! He really extended my tent!
Remember I mentioned a major set-back in my marriage? God used my painful experience for other women who are battling the same storm in their lives. God again extended my territory for all women whether happily married, widowed, separated, single moms and single women. To His glory, God made me steward to these women. I lead a weekly Bible study for women for more than 10 years and still counting. I served an awesome God!
