I would love to share with you the story of my life, and the goodness of God, in an abbreviated form. As mentoined above,I grew up in The Big Valley in Pennsylvania. With the beautiful mountains of Central Pennsylvania towering above both sides of The Valley, I had a wonderful family life growing up. However, The Lord was not part of my life at that time.
God started to work in my life in His own mysterious ways, softening my heart and drawing me to Himself. Jesus said "And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me." God has been working in my life ever since, giving me grace for every trial and peace and joy as I serve Him. I don't know why he chose me for His Kingdom, but it is my desire to live for Him each day and share His blessings with those I meet each day. Romans 2:4 AMP, ...do you have no regard for the wealth of His kindness and tolerance and patience? Are you unaware or ignorant that God's kindness leads you to repentance [that is, to change your inner self, your old way of thinking-seek His purpose for your life]?
