|Danza, the first thing I want to say to you is please, put your biography in this writing group. We all want to know more about you and this in turn helps us to help you. How old are you, are you married, etc.? Okay, enough said. On to your story.
First, remember to indent the paragraph. In the beginning I think it would be better to say; I have a testimony I've been wanting to share for a long time. My grandmother is the oldest member of our church. She has been going for a very long time, and is well known, highly respected, and loved by everyone.
When I was a teenager, I was into God and involved in a couple of youth groups at the church. One night we had a "Fun Night" there. We stayed overnight to worship the Lord. We listened to a special guest and praised the Lord. Then we were told to have alone time with God. As music played, I got down on my knees, put my hands together and placed my elbows onto the seat of the chair. As I prayed in silence, I asked God to show me or direct me to the right person who I would share my life with. I wanted him to reveal to me this person. I told him I was confused, and if he was there, to give me a sign he was listening. Unbeknownst to me, there was a firefighter who was very active in youth events, standing behind me.
After worship and praising God, we went into another room with lots of games for us to play. It was a bit like a festival. There were many people already playing. I was about to join in on the fun, when I was called over to a table by the firefighter. I went to the table and he said, when we were worshiping he had a vision. He said it was as clear as day. He told me, in the future, I was very much like my grandmother. It looked as though my future husband was some kind of Minister or had something to do with the Lord. I was shocked and happy all at once. I knew God had been there, and was listening to my prayer.
Sometimes life gets me down and I question my faith. I asked myself, "Is God real?" then, I look back at the gift of testimony and it lets me know, God is real. I'm glad I was chosen to hear this testimony so I could reach out and share His word.
You have written a great story. You need to rework some of the lines. I realize you are still learning and that's okay. Good job on writing. Keep on doing it as you get better every time you write.
I'm happy for your faith and never doubt it. It is there and God is real.
Thanks for sharing your stories.
Lynda give thanks.
