A Living Testimony
My dad was an alcoholic. He started drinking at the early age of 17 years old. My
grandfather was a very bitter man who showed no love or affection to my dad or to his
other 14 sons. My dad was whipped many times by my grandfather and it almost seemed as if
my grandfather didn't love his children. My dad was born and raised in Mexico and thanks
to the persistence of my grandmother, they were able to legally come to this country.
When my dad met my mom, he hide all of his flaws. He was always such a wonderful gentlemen
who never drank, who never said bad words, and who was always responsible and very
respectful. Well, my dad married my mom at age 26 and my mom was 24. After the wedding,
My dad started to get drunk with his family and he began to say many bad words to my mom.
My dad began to offend and insult my mom for no good reason. I guess he just felt that he
was more of a men by putting my mom down. My mom was shocked and she couldn't believe she
had married a man like him. My mom was a very quiet and vulnerable women and all she would
do was just cry. She cried of repentance because she had married my dad. Her very first
years of marriage with my dad were like hell and all she would do was just cry. She did
not have the support or help of no one. All of my mom's family was in Mexico. The only
reason why my mom stayed with my dad was because I was born and she didn't wanted me to
grow up without having my father.
My mom had a lot of faith in God and she would ask the Lord to make a miracle in my dad
and to heal him. Well, it took about five years for my moms prayers to be answered. It all
happen when my mom took me to kinder garden. Their was this lady in school who invited my
mom to this very special retreat which was only for married couples.
My mom's heart pounded so deep that she wholeheartedly wanted to go. She told my dad to go
to this retreat and my dad's response was "Your crazy, I'm never going to go to one
of those places, that's only for crazy people". Well, my mom was firm with the Lord
and her faith was greater then my dad's stubbornness. My mom prayed intensely, asking the
Lord to touch my dad's heart and the unexpected happened.
My dad was a little bit drunk that day, and the retreat had already started a long time
ago. He didn't even know why he said to my mom "let's go". My mom simply grabbed
her sweater and they left. When they arrived to the retreat, there were over 6,000 people
there, and they were in this big auditorium. The first thing my parents saw was the
"Santisimo", the priest was in this moment praying for all of the people that
had alcohol addictions, and etc. Well, the Lord surely took over my dad and my mom. It was
incredible that the first thing the Lord did to my dad was that he deeply touched my dad's
heart. My dad began to open up and the Lord began to do his will in him. The Lord filled
my mom's emptiness with love, happiness, joy and incredible inner healing. The Lord healed
my parents from so many things, that I don't even know them all. Only the Lord knows what
After the retreat, the unexpected happened, my dad stopped saying bad words and he started
being a different man. Both of my parents were like new people. They now wanted to work
together as a team to start a new life together with the Lord. My dad started going to AA,
and with time he was able to reduce his drinking until he eventually stopped drinking. My
mom began to be a strong and brave women who cried no more for no reason. She now had the
Lord within her and she knew that with the Lord she had the best in life. They began to
serve in their church and the Lord used them as his chosen instruments. My sister, my two
brothers and myself started going to this children ministry and we began to learn about
God's Endless Love for all human beings.
The Lord is big, the lord is strong, the lord is all mighty and powerful, the lord is
love, the lord is forgiveness, the lord is happiness, the lord is the light, the lord is
the truth, the lord is the salvation of our souls, the lord is the essence of our
existence, and the Lord is everything we need.
He gives unconditional love that no other human being can give. He forgives so much that
after his blessing, we feel like new born human beings. He gives such strength and
encouragement that we feel that nothing is impossible and with the Lord everything is
possible. The Lord gives us the purpose and the reason to live. Our purpose is to do good
in this world so we can receive the greatest gift he has planned for us, which is to live
the eternal life with him. Where we won't suffer no more, cry no more, be hungry no more,
be lonely no more, be sad no more and we will be eternally happy.
Can you just for a moment, imagine yourself being right next to God, sharing everything
with him and being friends with him for an eternal life? Have you ever realized, and
thought that "God is the King and we are all God's children"? Have you realized,
just how special you are to God, that he sent Jesus Christ to die for "you"?
Have you realized, that you will receive and inherit all of gods gifts which is the
eternal life, because we are his beloved children? Have you realized that you will get
more out of life if you do God's will, because he will provide everything that you need?
Are you realizing that God has chosen "you", and he is talking to
"you" in this moment as you are reading this email? Have you realized, that he
wants "you" to come to him? Are you realizing just how much of your life you
have been wasting if you haven't been with the Lord?.............................So then,
what are you waiting for?...............Repent and God will forgive everything and start a
new life with him. He will give "you" the light, the strength, and guidance you
need to always do his will.......................and in this moment the Lord says to you
"MY SON COME TO ME BECAUSE I AM WAITING FOR YOU"; "COME AND RECEIVE THE
GIFTS AND BLESSINGS THAT I HAVE PLANNED FOR YOU".
