When I was twelve years old, I gave my heart to the Lord.  I will never forget the love and happiness I had when I was saved and when I was with the saints.

Unfortunately as I got older, I slipped into worldliness.  Although on the surface it appeared that I was happy, I was empty inside.  I was a manger at a Cadillac shop and lived in an apartment on the beach.  I would get off work and have a drink with my friends, walk along the beach, and hang out with them.

Many people think this free lifestyle is a fun way to live and having a family would tie them down but I knew better.  Here I was, a thirty-two year old woman with no children.  I knew being a mother was what I wanted more than anything.

One day while at the grocery store, I saw this beautiful candle with a picture of Jesus on it.  He had on a white robe and had a red heart in front of Him.  Something really stirred inside of me, and I was convicted once again of my faith in Jesus. I felt like I had been robbed by the devil, and I thought to myself, 'He is not going to rob me anymore!'  I was reminded of the Word 'Ask and ye shall receive.'  John 16:23-24.

I went home and prayed to God for a child.  I promised the Lord that I would raise that child in the church.  (In 1 Samuel 1:11, Hannah prayed a similar prayer.)  My faith never wavered.  That month, I became pregnant.  Hallelujah!  Praise God!  He gave me a wonderful son, and then a few years later He blessed me again with a beautiful daughter and a husband that has received Jesus.

I'm now standing on the solid rock (Jesus) and a foundation which we're building on.

If you don't know Jesus as your Savior ask Him to forgive you of your sins and come into your heart.  Find a loving church family, and never let Satan rob you again.

Are you tired of being robbed by Satan?  Just call out to God right now by saying this prayer:  Dear Jesus, right now I ask you to be my Lord and Savior.  I believe you are the Son of God, that you died on the cross, and you arose from the dead.  I admit that I am a sinner, and I ask for forgiveness of my sins.  I want to walk in freedom with you and I want you to walk with me for the rest of my life and throughout eternity. Thank you Jesus, for saving my soul.  Amen.'
