“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, ‘Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.'” (Revelation 12:10-11 KJV)
Jesus was that sacrificial Lamb that overcame the power of sin, death, and the works of evil for us by shedding His blood on the cross at Calvary. He paid the penalty for our sin so we could choose to come to Him and receive forgiveness, cleansing from sin, salvation and eternal life.
We, as Christians, overcome our adversary by the word of our testimonies. This is one of the purposes for creating Testimonies, Tips and Tidbits.
Testimonies, Tips and Tidbits, what a mouthful! What kind of website could have such a variety of topics? As you read the pages of this blog you will find testimonies of my personal life experiences and my walk with God, tips I’ve learned while teaching Bible to others, and Tidbits I’ve learned that have helped me along my journey. I hope you enjoy reading the pages of this blog and glean nuggets of information that will help you on your journey through life.
Jesus Christ is transforming my heart, soul, spirit and life. As the Psalmist said, “I waited patiently for the Lord; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of a horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: Many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord. Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respected not the proud, nor turn aside to lies.
Many O Lord my God, are thy wonderful works which thou hast done, and thy thoughts which are to us-ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto thee: if I were to declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.” (Psalm 40:1-5 KJV)
Jesus has done this in my life. He has delivered me from the miry clay, set my feet upon the rock, and put a new song in my heart–a song of praise unto my God. At a very low point in my life, I attempted to commit suicide but God intervened and miraculously stopped me from going through with it. Now God has given me a new life filled with love, joy, peace and many other blessings and promises from Him. I am alive today to testify to the goodness of God, and to share some of the wonderful things He has done in my life. God has done many wondrous works in my life but they are too numerous to remember, and only a portion of them appear on the pages of this blog.
There are more testimonies about my experiences in church on my other blog https://christianeducationstation.wordpress.com They include stories of things that happened when I was teaching in Sunday School and other ministries. There are cute stories about the capers of children in Sunday School, informative stories about experiences where I learned more about teaching, and tips I want to share with those leading the church or teaching. Perhaps they can benefit others and help them prevent some of the mistakes I made along the way. But God was faithful to take care of all of us regardless of the circumstances. He is the all-powerful one!
Sharing our testimonies can help others overcome obstacles, including the enemy of our souls. Sharing God’s work in our lives will also bring Him glory and pleasure. This is why I desire to share these stories with you. I want to praise the Lord for His faithfulness, goodness, and mercy. He is worthy to be praised.
