                         My Testimony

                 by Mrs.Saundra Fisher


   When I was 3 days old the first place my Mom took me to was The Kingdom Hall. I was taken there by my Mom until I was around 9 years old when my parents separated.


   My Dad would take my sister and I to our Grandmother's house every Friday night for the weekend after that.


   Grandma would go to Church every Sunday morning and took me with her to The New Shiloh Baptist Church on Monroe Street. This Church wasn't like the Kingdom Hall at all, it was alive, the people were lively not just quietly sitting there...these people had something the people at the Kingdom hall didn't have.


   The Pastor would get very loud and shout a lot at my Grandma's Church and I didn't understand it. As a little girl this frightened me and my Grandmother had a hard time getting me to go every Sunday, but one Sunday I started to actually listen to what he was saying.

That day a tearful 9 year old little girl stepped forward to receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.


   At home, I received no Christian training from my nonbelieving Dad; he wanted nothing to do with any kind of Religion or never even responded to words of faith.  At Grandma's, she didnt teach me anything at all about my newfound faith at all, probably because she knew new her son might not bring her granddaughter over anymore

(I don't know), so I wasn't trained up (raised) with the right foundation and was unable to live a God fearing Christian life.

                                                                ***

   Year's passed (17), it was 1989 the tear my Mom passed and I found myself alone (I went to go live with her after my parent's separated) and a high school dropout illprepared by my parents to make it on my own, trying to survive was not easy, and doing well

seemed to be out of the question. It seemed as though a dark cloud loomed over my head for whatever reason I did not yet comprehend.


   I remembered the first teaching's

I received at the Kingdom Hall and somehow sensed God wasn't in it at all, yet much Bible study and the truth of God's Word told me the Jehovah's Witnesses were not truly the right path.


   So I knew (I believe God revealed this to me; maybe because of my prayerful born again Grandmother) the Jehovah's Witnesses wasn't ruled by the true Spirit of God because I had prayed to God when I was a girl and asked Him to reveal to me if it was really Him. It wasn't, so I moved on, now knowing it was safe to walk away from the deception.

Back to 1989...I was 26~

I felt so weighted down and terrible inside; I was an exotic dancer (which entailed no glamor) and became

addicted to drugs to dull the pain

of very intense grieving after the death of my Mom. Then one day I realized if I die right now I will go to Hell!

Yes..I believed.


I became very afraid about where my soul would end up If I would suddenly die, not remembering the time when I tearfully received Jesus Christ's substitutionary Sacrifice for the forgiveness of all my sins by His Heavenly Father when I was a little

girl.


For some reason I sensed Hell was waiting for me should I die at that point in time.  Realizing, somehow, that there is "life after death", that my spirit would continue on (along with my mind and awareness) believing that what the Bible said was True :

So humbling myself I did something  something I hadn't done in a long time...I prayed; asking God to please show me the true way to Heaven.

I now realize this moment to be able to be free to pray was granted by God as an act of His Love and enduring Mercy towards me that day and I can't take any credit (glory) for this fact.


Not too many day's Later while channel surfing, I stopped at a man who was reciting Bible scriptures. As I listened, I realized this was the answer to my prayer! The man : Dr.Jack Van Impe was talking a lot about Jesus Christ and how He's coming back to Earth. I believed; and at the end of the program I prayed the prayer and became "born again".

At this point I still couldn't remember accepting Jesus' sacrifice for all my sin's when I was a little girl. What I had really done at the end of the Jack Van Impe Presents program was rededicate my life to God through His Son Jesus Christ.


I got baptized much later in the '90s at Church On The Rock in Brooklyn, Maryland. In the Holy Bible we are commanded


There have been times in my life where I fell, but I managed to call on the name of Jesus and He would always forgive me, pick me up, dust me off and welcome me back home with His unconditional Love : Isaiah 64 : 8 says; But now, O Lord, thou art our father ; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand.

I'm still on the potters wheel.

 

An utter lack of consistency has always seemed to plague almost every endeavor I would embark upon in life and still need prayers and Gods Holy Spirit to change me and turn from walking in the flesh a lot of times; there are many people in life that never seem to finish what they start and I will admit I still struggle, but Jesus came to set  the captives free!

I hope I have been able to help somebody else out telling hurting people the Remedy for all that ails our Human Race. Jesus said 'you were freely given to; freely give.'


I care and love people and hope someone has found the Lover of their soul on this site.


I don't have a Masters degree or a Phd but such as I have I give to you as I have been freely given to by the Lord.


Much love to all people.

I hope to see you on the other side with Jesus, so I can say " You made it!" and give you a big hug.


God bless You,

Sincerely Sandy.
