    Waiting On The Lord

    I give God thanks for waking up every morning. God has been good to me, and I thank God for blessing me.

    Ms. Johnson, I thank God for you and the Monday, Wednesday, and Friday prayer calls...they have been a blessing. I am addicted to Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I am blessed every time I hear what is being said and the prayers being prayed.

    I don't care how sleepy, or how late I go to bed, I thank God for blessing me to get up and hear your words of encouragement and inspiration. I can truly say you have been a blessing to me.

    I would love to give my testimony about waiting on the Lord to bless and give you the desire of your heart. Ms. Johnson, I can say that the Lord has blessed me with a very nice, God-fearing man. Sometimes, I have to ask myself "God, are you sure this is for me?" Waiting 20 years has been a blessing to me.

    I was divorced on March 14, 2004, after being married for 27 years. I was hurt and very disappointed because I never thought my marriage would end up in a divorce. After getting divorced, I moved to Mooresville, NC, to start my life over. I wanted to put the past behind me and go where I knew no one.

    My youngest son was in the military and stationed at Fort Bragg, which is now Fort Liberty, three hours away. That was the closest person that I knew. Not one time did I turn my back on God. I could have gone wild because no one knew me, but God.

    I was in North Carolina for 12 years, and I was employed by the Department of Justice. I met someone but he was not the one. I was employed for 22 years. After my retirement, I moved back to Florida. I live with my oldest son, his wife, and their child

    I yet love the Lord, and I went to noon day prayer every Tuesdays and Fridays. Then COVID came in 2020 and church was done virtually. I went to church an hour away. Yes, I know some of you are probably saying an hour. I wanted to be fed the word of God. I didn't want sweet words.

    I also didn't want to go to church where my ex-husband was attending, because I didn't want anyone to think that I was following him. The other church that was close by had too many relatives. In all my time of traveling to church, I would talk to God and let him know the desire of my heart. I even had Ms. Barb Johnson praying with me that God would honor my prayers. To God Be The Glory!

    On November 10, 2023, my children gave me a 70th birthday dinner. I invited different friends, and I invited this Elder from my church. His wife passed away in July 2022. After inviting him, he called me to RSVP.

    And from my birthday dinner we became friends. We talked every other day, and now it's every day. At 70th years young, I can truly say that God has blessed me. God has given me more than I could ever imagine. He is saved and has the Holy Ghost, and most of all, he loves the Lord. This year, August 24, 2024, the Lord will bless us to be married, and I will not be a single woman anymore. Yes, it was a twenty year wait, but it has been worth it all. To God Be The Glory!

    I have even told my fiancé about you that I get up on those days to be on the prayer call. When I say they are a blessing to me, they are a blessing. May God continue to bless you as you bless others
