Let us lift up praise to our great Heavenly Father, for His wonderful works to the children of mankind!

"What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?" Psalm 8:4

The first and greatest miracle He does is SALVATION...!

"I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."  Luke 5:32

The first time I remember His miraculous works in my life, is the night He saved me, to my utter astonishment! 

 February 29, 1984, about 9:30 p.m., after a night of fiery preaching by Pastor Tom Carstarphen, I went home and locked myself in the bathroom to pray.

II Peter 3:9 was burning in my heart..."The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."

What, me, repent? That was for drug addicts, alcoholics, and prostitutes. Not me! I was a good person.  I had prayed for salvation many times hoping that if God hadn't saved me, He'd consider my "good works" (very few at best) and let me in Heaven, anyway! Well, I finally finished arguing with the Lord, and making excuses for being lost. I thought God would never save such a hypocrite, who had driven people from Him with my hypocrisy. The Holy  Spirit was departing  and  spiritual darkness was closing in to claim my soul for eternity. 
I thought it was hopeless, but I cried out at the last nano-second, "Please, save me!".
 A few moments later, I said, "Amen."...out of duty.
However, He had already done it. My heart was washed clean, and I went to bed in a state of awe and wonder.
My two children had a Christian mother.  I couldn't believe it. I was actually saved, for real! Me, of all people. I thought He'd never save me.  But He did.

John 6:37 says, "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."

That did it. I knew He had saved me for sure.

However, early in 1992, not thinking this would ever happen to me, I backslid terribly by worshipping a man and his false profession of faith, instead of God. I slid right down into a pit of sin. Once I realized he was committing criminal acts against children, I had to break free, mentally, and realize there would be no marriage. I cried out to the Lord to deliver my mind and emotions, and He did, and took me back. He still loved me, even tho' my testimony was in shambles. That, to me, was an absolute miracle, that He still loved me, and was still my Father.
We went to court and assisted his ex-wife in recovering custody of their kids. Our reports, and many others, went to DHS and the police. Many kids were set free.
I am grateful God got so much out of this horrible situation.
He is truly the prodigal's father and forgiver and restorer.

"Return, ye backsliding children, and I will heal your backslidings. Behold, we come unto thee, for thou art the Lord our God." Jeremiah 3:22

What love!!!
