Here is what I posted on the other thread. I am really late, responding to your questions, so started a new thread in hopes of catching your eye.

Mzrella -

Sorry that I have not been around the Libs side. Weekends are usually very busy for me, so I don't always have time to read everything.

I did want to acknowledge your questions to me from four days ago and respond to the best of my ability.

During the first 36 years of my life, I was exposed to so many different religions: Mainstream Chritianity (Methodist, Presbyterian, etc.) to Judaism; Hinduism & New Age to Roman Catholicism. And -- of course -- I was quite an intellectual, so my studies included astrology, the psychic realm, existentialism, atheism, agnosticism. You name it and I checked it out.

By the age of 36, I was burnt out and broken inside. Life had been HARD and I was so weary of struggling in every area: relationships, career, finances...EVERYTHING. I was very ill, too. Had inoperable fibroid tumors which caused me terrible hemorrhaging and pain.

Then, I had my miracle. While laying helplessly on the sofa one afternoon, bleeding and in terrible pain from the fibroids and unable to pick up (or really care for) my [then] toddler son, he clicked on the TV, after stealing the remote. I found myself listening to a female preacher who was talking about "Jesus" and how He had healed her from fibroid tumors...just like mine. That sort of grabbed my attention, sick as I was.

So, with no one around to make me feel embarrassed, I spoke out loud to Him. Challenged Him, actually. Said (in a not very respectful tone of voice - SMILE), "Ok, Jesus, if you really are Who You say You are, help me. I have nowhere else to turn."

Instantly, I felt a Presence enter that room and surround me. It was awesome. Warm. Comforting. I felt as if I were being given a Giant Hug that never stopped. And as if a heavy weight had been lifted from the shoulders of my Life. And suddenly, I KNEW that Jesus really was Who He had said He was. And that I would be OK from that day onward.

He healed my fibroids that day. Blew my doctor's mind away. (I have my "miracle" medically documented.) But -- more importantly -- He began healing my wounded heart. It took some time, but I can honestly say I am not the wounded, angry, empty woman who cried out to Him that day. Today, I have a life that is full and deeply rewarding. And my relationship with Him has grown to one of deep trust and intimacy. He is my Best Friend, my Lover and my Great Comfort, as well as my God.

As many of you know, I am an ordained minister. Most of my work is "non-traditional." I serve young women, leaving prostitution and drugs. Organize home gatherings for people who hate traditional church. Offer prayer and telephone support to anyone who needs a kind and listening ear. Serve as a volunteer at the local Healing Rooms (where anyone can walk in off the street and receive prayer for ANY need.)

And do I see miraculous answers to prayer? Yes. Constantly. Broken hearts mended. Shattered relationships restored. Finances reversed and salvaged. Bodies healed. Minds healed. Lives made worthwhile again. Because He really and truly, genuinely LOVES us and cares about us.

There is my story. There is alot more, but I only wanted to share my personal walk with Jesus. He is real and I will never again be alone or without comfort. And He has blessed me with a life of faith and hope. I am SO grateful to Him and hope to serve Him all the remaining days of this olde lady's life.

I hope my story gives you hope, Mzrella.
