Something was missing

little over 18 years ago, I was at a point in my life that is reflected in the old song "Is that all there is?"

I was in my late 20s, married, with a young son but something was missing. My husband and I were unfortunately into the "modern" free thinking and pornography.

We had a couple who we were close friends over and had a few too many to drink. Looking to see what was missing we started down the wrong path. But even then God had His hand on me just as He protected Sarah when passed off as Abraham's sister.

I got sick and "woke" up half way around our block. I woke up also to the fact that that was NOT what was missing in my life!

The Lord then sent us to a "Marriage Encounter" weekend and we knew that God was missing. But there was no one there to tell us how to find Him.

The Lord then sent my cousins on vacation to visit us, they gave us the Gospel. Both my husband and I received Him at that time. We have never even looked back. We both serve the Lord in our home and church.

We have been through the furnace. Isaiah 48:10 - "Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver, I have tested you in the furnace of affliction." We can only give all praise and glory to THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!!
