I was born on the 2nd of Feb 1969 to two loving parents. I could not ask for better parents and I loved them so much and I still love them. I said loved because they are walking in the heavens with their Lord and master. However I shall start from the beginning.

As a child my mum took me to the Salvation Army where she was a local officer and I remember one Sunday the YPSM gave out an altar call and I went out to the mercy seat and gave my life to God. At the end of the meeting I got up and I got given a piece of paper about junior soldier class which I attended. I still did not feel any different and I went to learn to play the cornet and tenor horn. I still did not feel any different, this was about 6 or 7 yrs on and then my dad fell ill. At that time I kept wondering how God could do this to my dad as he had cancer. A few months went by and my dear dad died and went to heaven. I was so angry with God and with myself, and, as I know now I was angry with myself and not God as I did not tell my dad that I love him. I just thought that he knows and I fell of the rails big time. Time went by and about 4 years later my mum said to me that she was going to a new church a pentecostal fellowship and how God was working in her life and I could see a change in her. So I went along one Sunday night and the pastor there preached the gospel and I could not move from my seat. For the first time in my life God was real and his spirit was dealing with me on a personal level. At the end of the meeting the pastor gave out a call for anyone who wanted to give their lives to God and I went out to the front and I gave my life to God, I was overwhelmed with God's love.

The months and years flew by. God was dealing and doing so much in my life and in others around me but then one day I just fell away from god or so I thought allthough I did not know why I fell away from him. Anyway the years went past and I was doing my own thing. I got marrired to a wonderful person, her name is Pippa. Well anyway a few years went past and we found out my mum was ill so we would go to the hospital every day and one day mum said to me she wanted healing. I know what she meant so with that I went away and cried and cried before the Lord and asked the Lord why my mum as well and I felt the Lord say to me my mums work was done on the earth and it's her time to be with him in heaven. So with that I picked myself up and went to my mum and I prayed with her for the first time in my life and asked for healing and about aweek later God took herto heaven and time went by.

I am now 36yrs of age, 6 yrs on from my mum going to heaven, and I am going to a wonderful pentecostal fellowship in the northeast of England. I have found God again and then I found out that God never left me. He was guiding me though my lfe, he gave me my wife which I thank him for and give him all the glory and the word of God is real to me once again and it always will be and I will never fall away from him again.

Looking back over the years I am reminded of the poem Footprints where it says:-
My dear son I love and I will never leave you
and where you only see one set of footprints
that is where I carried you

And I give him all the praise and all the glory to him for being in my life, glory be unto him.
King of kings
amen

Hi Rickstar,
thank you sharing your testimony.
Losing your father at the age of 6 or 7 that must of been so hard for yourself and your mum.


A friend of mine saw the footprints poem and that helped him to accept Jesus into his heart.

I am so grateful that Our Lord Jesus does carry us at times and he is faithful to us.


Rickstar you said ........."So I went along one Sunday night and the pastor there preached the gospel and I could not move from my seat. For the first time in my life God was real and his spirit was dealing with me on a personal level. At the end of the meeting the pastor gave out a call for anyone who wanted to give their lives to God and I went out to the front and I gave my life to God, I was overwhelmed with God's love."

That is so encouraging to read that. It motivates me to invite my friends to come to church and to make sure that i continue going to church.

God bless you.
