Ok here goes, but as I said this may end up being a book.
MY first recollection of God.
I was young living with mother and two sisters at this time.My dad was and alcolholic,I didnt know this at the time. I ws 5yeas old .Now ,let me fill you in. I was a daddy's girl .. I thought He could do no wrong. He was tall and funny and strong, but He wasnt home a lot.Now sometimes he was gone for months, and at this age, I began to see something wasnt right.I live on a street two house up from a church, I would walk there every time the door was open, alone.A lady there by the name of Lotty, took me unde her wing, I never knew why. But she loved me and I knew it, she prayed for me. I just dont remember what she prayed.I loved that woman of God.So I came to know that there really was a God , I didnt know who He was, but I knew He exsisted and could hear us talk.One day I was outside playing and started thinking about my dad, he was gone again, and I could not understand , He'd been gone for a long time. I thought He was dead. My little heart was breaking,He used to listen to me sing even commercials I sangg... and he would cry . I didnt understand that either.But he did , as I was saying, I was playing outside. Missing him and decided I wanted to sing to God this song, for it stated what I was feeling. " HOW FAR IS HEAVEN". wELL i was singing this to God, sitting of a cement slab in the ground, singing to God.See the only verse I now can remember is this. How far is heaven I want to go... to see my daddy, I love him so .
As I was singing this song, I heard some one speak and it sounded like He called my name. I looked around for the voice came from my right side.To my amazement , no one was there.SoI just atarted singing to God again, but tis voice spoke my name again,I did the same thing, no one was there.I got up then and went to see if mother or my sister Ray had called me.They said no... I went back out side and sat back down and started up again and there was that voice again ! This happened seven times, I got up three to inquire of my mother, no was the answer everytime.So I know with out a doubt, that God had called me by my name seven times that day, for no one else was there. I didnt understand why and know one could tell me who it was but I felt Him. People will tell you God doesnt speak to man, but I am here to tell you, that is a lie. See he called MY name and I heard Him and no, I am not insane.
Well my life went on and I continued going to that church . But things started happening, I didnt understand. Daddy didnt come home, mother moved , and my grandmother ended up with me for some reason. But throiugh it all I can still look back now and see the hand of God in all the situation, for see He chose me I did not choose Him .He chose to come o a little lost girl and love her befor she even knew who He was....( to be cont..)
Bring them unto me
