My Journey Continues – The Teenage years.

My Journey continues… My Mum who Adopted, me had other Children 3 boys and 2 girls,  she had a very kind heart and still does but she was brought up in a harsh environment and  is an agro Atheist she is 91 now  her husband my 2nd  dad had some belief but was not practicing,  before he died he became an Alcoholic but was never violent just slept a lot.
 
Mum abused me in anger at times  and I found this hard so I ran away from home a few times and ended up in trouble. I was frightened of Mum but thinking  back it was how she was treated as a Child and so to her it was the way you disciplined but I knew in her own way she cared about me and she has shown it many times but is often abusive about my Faith. 
 
When I started High School our Social Studies teacher  told us we came from an Ape and those who had been told differently were lied to. I went home very upset but Mum confirmed what the Teacher had said and told me Jesus was just a made up person and the  Bible just a fairy story and so I lost my friend or so I thought. 
 
I was very hurt and angry and very, very sad, I ate some ratsack, I don’t believe I wanted to die I just wanted attention I felt so lost and alone but I never even got sick, years later a Doctor told me I should have had a Cerebral Haemorrhage because it was made from Wolfram but perhaps I didn’t eat enough, I don’t really remember. 
 
I rebelled greatly for many years hurting God, others and myself, the rest although at times amazing is also a long heartbreaking story and yet I also witnessed God’s mercy and grace in my life but at the time didn’t recognize that it was Him. 
 
I found my FRIEND Jesus again and have been greatly blessed, sometimes in awesome ways, none of which I deserved but my heart is full of thankfulness that Jesus my FRIEND never let go of my hand and God my Loving Heavenly Father continued to show me great mercy and compassion and The Holy Spirit  comforted me over and over again and taught me many things and  even when I claimed The Godhead didn’t exist They were always there,  yes at a distance but still I was in Their view and in Their heart.
 
At times God intervened  Miraculously and saved my life…One day as a 17-year-old when I was crossing a road a Truck didn’t see me and by the time the driver did he could not stop, I ended up on the footpath right across the other side of the road, the Truck driver was trembling as he told me that I flew across the road, he kept saying I should be dead it was impossible absolutely impossible for me to have reached the other side but you flew you flew. I now believe it was God’s Angels that carried me across that road.
 
In Childbirth 3 years later, I was dying they could not save me I was on the verge of a Cerebral Haemorrhage and they couldn’t get my blood pressure down, I had server Toxemia. They wanted to save the baby by doing a Caesarean Section  but it would defiantly kill me, so my husband would not let them hoping I would live, so sadly my baby died, she was very weak and could not survive a natural birth. I was in a deep coma and the Doctors had given up on me, they could not help me and told my husband and Mother I only had a short time left to live and then suddenly everything started to return to normal and so I lived…you may have noticed…but sadly being an unbeliever at the time I never thanked God.   
 
How I finally came to True heart repentance is  another long story as are the other Miracles and signs and wonders I have experienced in my life most of which are Medically documented and witnessed and  there is no answer to them except that they are by the hand of God who Supernaturally showed His Love for me through the Storms that I have encountered in Life and carried me to safety.
 
 I do not believe I’m better than anyone else perhaps I was much worse but I do believe that God in His Love and Mercy knew I needed to see His presence in a tangible way and others of course can testify to the same.  
 
A few links about these years in some ways both sad and wonderful and my younger years.

    Hi Anne. I read your first two accounts (girlhood and the teenage years), and it is so incredibly apparent that the Lord has had His hand on you in a powerful way. Because I had two loving parents and was raised in a loving home, I can’t imagine the kind of abuse you endured. And yet, your account is a wondrous testimony of God’s love being poured out in abundance. I look forward to reading more of your posts, but for now (besides catching my breath!), I am left with a sense of awe at how great our God is through His providence in your life. Jesus’ warmest blessings upon you, Anne.

    • Thank you David for taking the time to read my Journey it was very kind of you, yes it’s been a hard one and quiet Stormy but like you I can see God’s hand of Love and His intervention in my life when needed and still do.

      I will be out most of today David but hopefully I will be able to read some more of your Posts tonight and some others of those I Blog with. God does indeed Bless His Children perhaps in different ways but always motivated by His Love for us.

    How beautiful it is to know that God still loves us and stretches out his hand of mercy towards us, even while we are yet in sin.
    It is not because we are better than others that we are spared, but because of God’s mercy and grace.
    I’m so glad that God kept you to inspire me.

    • Hi Son, yes very True and as Scripture confirms, it’s by God’s foreknowledge of our hearts repentance which shows we believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, He is the only way to God, and this is why He chooses us to be conformed into the image of Jesus. He knows we are His in Eternity and that we will accept the free gift of Salvation but you are right Son it’s not because we were better than anyone else.

  7. Ya know, I was thinking that the reason you were lost for a period and returned is the fact that you found your friend Jesus before all the teenage hoopla began. God protects all children in a quiet way and He knows those who truly belong to Him, even if they sway.
    God has truly blessed you and all of your testimonies speak volumes of His love and mercy.

    • Dear Shelia, what you shared is very True, Jesus never walked away and later He searched for me and rescued me when I was lost ( see link below) but even though I know I’m fully forgiven after coming to True heart repentance, it still grieves me although there is no shame, when I remember that I hurt God and others greatly, yes I was in darkness even after being part of a Church, I was very bind and deaf, most people thought I had it all together but working for our Salvation is the Pits. Today 17 years later I’m washed – How good is that!

    Wonderful story of God’s love and mercy, Anne! I am encouraged to know the lives of millions of people who have come out of false religions—or no religion at all—through the centuries clearly refutes the idea that our ability to be saved is dependent upon how we were raised and what we were taught. Salvation is not the eternal dwelling place of those who were fortunate enough to be raised in good Christian homes. We are all saved in the same way—by the grace of God given to undeserving sinners, not because of what we know, where we are born, or how we have been indoctrinated. Our right standing before God is established on one thing only: the finished work of Christ crucified who shed His blood so we could live (John 19:30). I thank God for you, Anne! You are a blessing!

      Hi Pastor Joe thank you for your kind words I believe as you do that Salvation is a free gift, as you can see by my early years “A Little Lost Girl see link above ” God reached out His hand to me and said I Love you, I want to be your friend.

      I have Ministered over the years to both Atheists and X Cult members and witnessed to many people and what I have noticed is very simular with all of them is confusion and this also very much dominated my life until I asked God for His wisdom and I did so passionately seeking it with all my heart and believing I had received it not doubting that He gave it to me. I’m still learning and increasing in knowledge and insight but know what He has taught me is His Truth.

      One thing must come first if we are to walk in Victory, we need to have a repentant heart choosing to obey God’s guidelines and by His empowering we will , it is not that our full obedience saves us but it shows we are saved and perfected in Love, it is the goal we are to aim for… Is God patient with us… yes very much so, He knows those who are His and not one will be lost.

      When I fell into sin 10 years after believing I was a Born again Christian, I thought I was doomed and I also thought God and everyone else couldn’t Love someone as evil as me, I was going to kill myself but God rescued me and showed me He Loved me in a very tangible way. After coming to True heart repentance and asking for God’s wisdom He has shown me His Truth and also man’s error that keeps them from walking in His Power and Victory and is mostly because of trusting in their own understanding or what they have been wrongly taught. Yes they can have some Truth, even Cults do but there is deception and also Truth that is not being taught or understood today but is confirmed in the Scriptures and so we have many differant Denominations and Cults, most who claim to be lead by The Holy Spirit but He does not say one thing to one person and something differant to another when they contradict and God is a God of Unity not division.

      He tells us Faith comes from hearing The Word, this is His Truth which sets us free, Jesus is The Living Word and is Truth, to believe in Him is to know Him, we need very much to have His wisdom, it is the treasure, the pearl and when we seek God with all our heart we will find Him, Jesus says you don’t have because you don’t ask believing you have received. All of God’s Children who He has known from Eternity are already saved but they have to accept by heart repentance to receive His gift which causes them to want to willingly turn from evil and do good and is then shown in their Love for God and others.

      Pastor Joe if I continue now I will need to publish this book but you know were to find me and I will visit with you again soon.

      Christian Love Anne.

    Quite a story. So, people actually believe they came from apes?? The devil is working overtime; doing everything he can to make sure we forget we were created in God’s image. If we came from apes; it’s a free fall; no need for moral boundaries, no true sense of worth and so on… Glad you found the truth though, or should I say, glad the truth found you.

      I hope I encourage others too but to be honest sadly sometimes people will only accept what agrees with their agenda, so will reject the Truth and sometimes us as well and this is how Jesus said it will be, but if we continue to pray for them they may see the light as God brings the Truth to them again and again in differant ways, we just plant the seed others water and God brings His children to everlasting life, we need to pray for more workers.

      Thank you for your kind and caring heart, yes my road has been very rocky, I chose not to obey God’s guidelines for a long time but I agree with you God in His Love and mercy intervened to save my life and also rescued me when I could not continue on and wanted to end my life. He knew before I was conceived the road I would walk and that I would come to heart repentance but Satan being in control in this world had the right to mess with my life but not kill me much the same as Job and we all go through this testing, it is from Satan not God but we do not walk alone as you can see with my life.

  23. Thank you for sharing this Annie. I was hit in the head with a block when I was 4 and suffered an epidural hematoma. The doctors said I would not survive it and if I did, I would be mentally impaired for the rest of my life. They were amazed that I was back to normal after the surgery to drain the blood off. As I look back, I am convinced that God brought me through that, and everthing else I have gone through, because He has work for me to do. And when you look at it like that, how can I not seek out His will and do His work?

      Thank you dear Velta and yes we all have much to be thankful for, we are indeed walking Miracles but sometimes like with me God understands our weaknesses and shortcomings and needs to reassure us and some times to save us He just let’s us go our own way even knowing we will be hurt, which grieves Him… But He knows what’s needed and He also tells us if we are Born again of His seed we can never loose His gift of Salvation in Christ Jesus, why? because He can’t reject Himself and we are one with Him eternally, we are His beloved Children known to Him in His Spirit from eternity and in our flesh from the time we were conceived…He knew we would come to heart repentance long before we were born and so chose to conform us into the Likness of His Son and be very assured He can’t uncomform us but then why would He want to when He has perfected us in His Love.

      Thank you for sharing Velta I really appreciate your heart thoughts.
