Philemon 1: 6
“The communication of thy faith [will] become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in Christ Jesus.”
Picture this a young woman in 1989 with short dark brown hair and green eyes, walking into an Apostolic Faith Mission Church. In September of 1989, I was 25 years of age and had two children. My son Jacques aged 7 and my daughter Odette aged 4. I was a strict mommy and had thought I had high values. When we sat in the pews I heard the Lord God speaking to me directly through the pastor. Sorry, I forget his name, he loved to play the violin which was so beautiful.
God was speaking to me directly that when the pastor made the altar call I had to hold myself down with both my hands so that I would not get up and walk to the front of the church. The next day I was watching TV with the kids and friends came along to see what we through of the service. I told them what I experience and my friend then said: “Yvette, that was the Lord God speaking to you, all you need to do is to confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is your Lord and savior.” They left and I took a long hot bath. As I lay in my bubble bath, I prayed the sinner's prayer. “Oh dear Lord God, you know and understand me, I am stubborn, full of nonsense and not a believer. I humbly come to You today and confess that I am in need of a brand new life. Please Lord God forgive me, I am not worthy to come to You, but in the Name of Your only begotten Son Jesus Christ forgive me and accept my humble prayer. Amen”
I prayed for forgiveness of sin that Monday evening and have never looked back. Sometimes we make mistakes and I have made so many but by the Grace of God here I go. Thank You, Lord God for being patient with me. As I send my testimony out to the world today. I confess and believe that every person believing or non-believing will come to You through the Holy Spirit’s anointing on my writing.
Be blessed in the Holy Name of my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen
