Do we really understand the power of our story? Do we believe His holy scriptures when we read that there is life and death in our words? Through Christ I pray His Hope is offered through our testimonies, their stories… Three beautiful and precious people who are willing to share simply out of their love for Christ. Each desiring to see this world through Kingdom vision. You know, we don’t always have to go through a trial or adversity to have a testimony. Our everyday praises to The King are like flaming darts to the enemy. He can be defeated when we testify to what God is doing in our lives. We ALL have a story…
“And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. . . .” || Revelation 12:11
I am just gonna share what God has been teaching me lately. I may ramble…
Our church has recently completed a 21 day season of prayer and fasting.

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. || Proverbs 29:18
My precious sister by another mother… I love Traci and her heart for Christ! Often, we will never know the impact we have on someone. Most likely unaware, she has carried me many times in her love for Christ. Her kind words and her reminder of HIS word have been a strong support, a leaning post… truly an Aaron in very weak time. Grateful.
The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. || Psalms 145:18
Everyone has a testimony! Most of you have many, rather big or small! Today, I’m going to share a little one with you that happened on March 19, 2013- The day our Sophie Marie was born. I will spare you all the beginning details and go straight to the thick of it. After many complications, I was being rushed to the OR to have an emergency c-section, and I do mean emergency. They actually hit the code blue button on my baby, whom I hadn’t even met yet. Doctors and nurses appeared from everywhere within seconds. So, this of course scared me to death! As they where running me down the hallway,I begin to panic. Then, when they flung open the doors, I decided to pray. My prayer was this, “Lord, please give me a sense of peace. Please let me know everything will be ok, no matter what the outcome. Please send your angels down to protect my baby girl, that her daddy and I have prayed over everyday for 9 months. Please, Lord, give me peace.” At that very moment, I felt a burst of cool air. A sense of calmness came over me, and I knew my baby was going to be ok. I could literally feel God in that delivery room with me. He was there holding my hand, because I had faith to call upon Him in my time of need. Prayer works. Sophie was born at 1:47 PM, weighing 7lbs, 14oz. Her heart was beating, but her lungs were not working. She had to immediately be put on a ventilator. They wheeled her tiny body with tubes coming out, over to my head. Her doctor, also a Godly man, leaned over to me and said that he was praying and what would pull her through was prayer. I knew then that she was going to make it. He held my hand and said a prayer for my baby, then quickly rushed her to NICU. Before we went to bed that night, Sophie was off the ventilator and breathing on her on. On March 25, 2013 we walked through our doors at home, as a family of 3!!!! Power of prayer works!!!! When in need call on Him; He will see you through!
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. || Philippians 4:6
Love you all!! Thank you to everyone who was there holding my hand and praying with us during the most difficult days of my life. || Leigh Ann Pearson
