This peace is a reality of Christ’s love...

My faith in God has given me a deep peace.  My boyfriend said it’s almost overwhelming because of his high stress job, in an instant he is calm around me.  I have had clients at work tell me similar things.  I believe this is the peace I get from Jesus Christ.  He strengthens me, pulls me back when I feel worried or anxious. Peace, trust, and love are my favorite things about Jesus.  I have not always lived with this peace.  I have a history of anxiety, worry, etc.  This peace is a reality of Christ’s love and I’m eternally grateful.

It felt as though a ton of bricks had been lifted from me...

As I was thinking about how God works, often He is the 11th hour God.  I hear story after story about how He's pulled couples from the very brink of divorce.  And this past summer, we were closer to the edge than ever.
 
Having a parent move in with us was challenging on many levels.  My parent and I have never been very close.  They have a personality disorder, therefore, I moved out when I was 19 and never looked back.  There was a lot of emotional violence in my family between my parents and I was more than happy to move east when the opportunity presented itself.  
 
With that said, my parent has been home with me and my husband for almost a month.  I had no idea the level of care that was needed and I think I cried the entire first week.  I had one part-time care giver and that wasn't enough.  I re-injured my back trying to move my parent from place to place.  I prayed for help and now we have three WONDERFUL Christian care givers who come at various times to care and give us relief.  They speak to my parent about God and encourage to watch Joel Osteen daily. My parent is regularly reading devotionals.  At first, it was tolerated.  Now, my parent looks forward to the time with these ladies in the Lord.
 
Having a parent in my home has brought back a lot of childhood trauma and I was becoming more sleepless, short -tempered, angry and anxiety-ridden.  All of the issues, of which, I had been healed (from my childhood) came flooding back.   I've been sticking close to my therapist and God during this time.  Jesus really has a sense of humor.  When we bought the house, I had NO IDEA that my therapist lived just a few houses away.  We have kept professional boundaries but still see each other on occasion (where we avoid personal issues).
 
My husband has been AMAZING with my parent. He's been available to both of us as we've needed him.  Often, he anticipates our needs and does various tasks without being asked.  He's been patient with my mood swings and deserves a medal.
 
Fast forward to last night, we were able to get out to have dinner by ourselves.  We had the deepest conversation I think we've ever had.  He had such a presence about him that I've never seen before.  An inner confidence and a peace.  What he shared with me was such a gift.
 
He explain that since we moved to this house, he's never felt God's love in his heart more strongly.  He explained that it had nothing to do with the house itself but more that he was able to open his heart to love me and my mother the way we deserved to be loved.   I'm sure that the people in the next booth thought he'd asked me for a divorce because I burst into tears.  Truly, the ice that's been around his heart for so many years has melted.  This is a miracle that only could have been accomplished through our Lord.  It felt as though a ton of bricks had been lifted from me.  It's made everything at I/we have gone through all worth it.  I've been praying for this for years.  In turn, I feel much freer to love him and my parent.  I truly have the partner I've been waiting for all these years.  I realize that I need to grow into the partner that he deserves.  God is good!!!!

I have been looking for a job for seven months...

On Sunday during ministry time, I asked one of the prayer servants to pray with me for a job. I have been looking for a job for seven months since coming to the USA with no success. The prayer servant prayer for me and told me whilst I was back with my family in India on vacation, the Lord had really blessed a lot of people in our congregation with jobs and we as a church have been going after having 0% unemployment in the church.  

At 5pm Sunday afternoon, I received a job offer. Thank You Jesus!

A lady dropped dead at a prayer meeting...

A lady dropped dead at a prayer meeting yesterday. I prayed and raised her from the dead by calling her back. She jumped up and said, "Why did you bring me back?". It was a powerful and amazing testimony!

...she was not expected to leave the hospital...

Approximately six weeks ago we received a call that Eugenia Armstrong was in Yale Hospital with a lung disease. The Yale Hospital chaplain advised she had requested pastoral prayer from Gateway. When we visited her, she had oxygen tubes connected and was being examined by doctors. Our prayer time was brief and we commanded healing into her body and lungs. We later found out that she was not expected to leave the hospital and if she did she would be on oxygen for the rest of her life. Fast forward to two weeks ago Eugenia is healing well with no oxygen. She has a friend who also prayed that she would not die and would be healed. This is truly an amazing testimony of the goodness of God.

I received job interviews for three jobs...

I've been out of work for many months. I am well qualified but have had no job interviews in my particular field of expertise. After Sunday, I made a declaration that I am no longer going to be without a job and pulled down the anointing for the Lord to make open the doors for job interviews. On Monday I received job interviews for three jobs, all within my field. Thank You Jesus.

The doctor said that in his whole life he has never seen a miracle like this.

My sister Solangel texted me from Puerto Rico that her mother-in law was rushed to the hospital and had an internal bleeding that the doctors could not find out. So I asked three of my friends to pray for her. Then I texted my sister back and told her not to worry and that God is in control. So my other sister Minerva, texted me the next day and told me that they were preparing her for surgery. They found out that she had bleeding in the ulcer. They decided to do another ultrasound and x-ray to prepare for surgery. When the ultrasound results came back, it showed no signs of bleeding or ulcer. She was completely healed. The doctor said that in his whole life he has never seen a miracle like this. So he called the other head nurse from the other floor to look at the x-ray, and said praise God she is healed. Thank Jesus thank you for the blessing!!!

Three people gave their lives to our Lord and Savior this morning...

Three people gave their lives to our Lord and Savior this morning. All I did was be obedient to my God. God did the rest. I needed to go to the Make-A-Wish office to hand in my article and a framed matted picture of the Beatle Abby Rd shots. You know that uneasy feeling when you're not listening to the Holy Spirit?  I hadn'tdone it yet. Well, this morning I sent the prints out to my local drug store. I went to pick them up. The manager there commented on how lovely they are. She started crying. She said, my son died two months ago from cancer and I'm so mad at God. God just took over the conversation and I was able to allow our sweet loving God minister to her heart. She then gave her life to the Lord, right there in the drug store. Then, her ex-husband arrived. He just came to see how she was. It was his son too. This was her first day back to work. God ministered to his heart and he gave his life to the Lord too. They are coming to Gateway this coming Sunday. Glory to God!!  Amen

Then, I brought the pictures to a local craft store to get the pictures matted and framed. I women shopping saw the pictures and I shared about everything God has been doing. She was from Rhode Island visiting, she gave her life to the Lord too!

I'm in awe always of the Power of our God!

After that, I was heading to Trumbull. But first, I felt I had to stop by the church to drop off our donations to "Love where you Live". Back on the road to Trumbull. This is me just trying to be obedient to God. Of course, I show up when there was a huge meeting going on with the director of Make a Wish America there.  The director of Connecticut Make-A-Wish came out to the lobby to speak with me and accept the gift. We spoke for a moment, then I think God took over. I was dragged in to the meeting, 50 people, with the peace of God.  I spoke to them about how this wish helped my family to look at life with a different perspective, and how I found the peace of God! I was them asked to speak at this big fundraiser. Well, that's not what I had in mind- yes, I'm a work in progress. But boy oh boy am I excited to see God Move! being obedient to God was all I did! God took care of everything!

...no more pain.

I had fractured my elbow last June and due to that my shoulder and hand were hurting a lot. It even hurt to raise my hand. I came up for prayer and now there is no more pain.

...pressure on the neck and shoulder has now been released.

I have been having ongoing problems with my shoulder and. It got worse and on Sunday it was really bothering me. So I came up for prayer at the end of the service. Someone prayed for me and the pressure on the neck and shoulder has now been released. I am grateful to God for providing this healing.

 

It was an instantaneous 'pop' feeling in my chest...

On Saturday, I had been praying since 7am and then watched the 10am service via live stream. After that, I felt lead to go and listen to some teachings by Pastor Benny Hinn. When we lived in California, we were under his ministry, but later left due to some personal issues. So on Saturday the Lord lead me to forgive and engage in listening to a teaching on the anointing and presence of the Lord and how important that is - His dwelling presence and intimacy should be our very focus. As I forgave Pastor Benny and myself for being unforgiving, I stretched out my hands to receive and I was instantly healed of a pestilent bronchitis that had been bothering me since the first week of January. It was an instantaneous 'pop' feeling in my chest and the congestion was immediately gone! Since about 4 months ago I began praying for Pastor Benny daily and did not realize I had not fully forgiven him. When I forgave him my heart was healed as well.
