Marriage Monday- My Testimony
Today on Marriage Monday, we are sharing our testimony. As most of you already know, I was an attempted abortion. So, at the beginning of my life, I was not wanted. That set my life on course for feelings of low self worth, and very much self hatred. All I wanted my entire life, was someone to truly love me, and care about me. Unfortunately, I was looking in all the wrong places, and only found abusive relationships. I was sexually abused by my stepfather, then kicked out by my mom who believed him, and not me. I was only 16 at the time, was forced to quit school, get a job, and live with neighbors. Needless to say, life only continued to get worse. But, at the age of 21, I met a wonderful man named Eddie(my lovebug), who very quickly became the love of my life. We were married on April 6th 1985, and will soon celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. We started going to church in June 1989, I was saved on July 2nd 1989. Praise God, on that morning, I found the love I had been searching for my entire life. My Saviour had been with me from the very beginning of my life, He saved me from being an abortion. He continues to be with me daily, watching over me, and keeping me safe. Without Him, I would be totally lost, but with Him, I am victorious. Thank You Father. I am eternally grateful.
