I just want to say that the Lord has worked miracles in my life. I shot myself in the head 17 months ago. For some reason he let me live. It's been a long recovery process but I'm finally almost normal again. There is not one day that goes by that I don't thank him for giving me a second chance. Keep up with the good work. (removed their name to preserve their privacy)"

I don't remember this person making fun of me but a lot of people who don't know the Lord used to do that before OLS had us make our own thread. Anyway, Thank you Jesus!
Cinz, Thank you for sharing this powerful, amazing message...The Lord has worked in this person's Mind, Thoughts and Heart...I Say Amen!!! I am so Thankful that this person has found the Lord's Direction, Mercy, Comfort, Grace, Protection and Salvation. I pray this person continues to Allow the Lord to work in their life...as that person mentions their recovery process has been long and may they have a Long Life Full of God's Blessings...the Lord is Mighty and we will all continue to face trials as He Molds Us...I am applauding both you for sharing and the person who sent you the apology for you are both Glorifying God!!! May the Lord continue to Lead Both of You forward along the Path of Righteousness and thanks for Praising him...God makes Us Whole.

Cinz, do you know if this person knows of the God Is Awesome Thread? If not would you be so kind as to send them a link to the thread?

Your share makes me think of last Tuesday's Blessing Post:
Seems so fitting so here it is again...

Let your Voice Be Heard!!

I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.
Psalm 119:7 NIV

After I read this Bible verse I started to sing this wonderful hymn...many of us learned this hymn as children...
turn on your speakers and enjoy and sing along if so inclined...
