Hi...my name is Cheryl and this is my first blog ever, as the title says. God is first in my life above all else. I am a born again Christian. I found God about 4 years ago and have been on a journey getting to know God, his commandments and what it means to give up living in this world.
My husband and I have been together 4 years now. We both believe God put us together. Before then, I believed in God but I did not walk the walk. I did not know what God expected of us or what God can do for us when we walk God's walk.
I was praying one night (which I very seldom did). I was praying because I felt so lost in this world. It seemed like I did not fit in anywhere. People avoided me and said things like...stay away from her, she is too good for you. I, at the time took this as an insult, why was I so different from everyone else. I was not a theif, I did not do drugs, did not pick men up in bars,etc. The idea of bringing a man home with me just for sex disgusted me. I found out later, it was not me being weird, I just did not belong to this world.
At the same time I was praying because I felt so lost, my now husband was praying for a partner in life who would love him, only him and not cheat on him. He prayed for a partner he could trust and not use him for what she could get. My husband and I knew who each other was but never said much other than maybe hi. One day a couple of days after my prayer to God, David and I started talking to each other, we have been together every day since. We started our journey to become good Christian's together. I praise God for putting me with my husband. and I praise God for leading me to him. This is just 1 example of God's power and love. I would like to hear your story about how you found the Lord. May God Bless You and yours. If your feeling lost, look for God and members of God's family, you will never be lost again.
