It was over
a decade ago, back in 1994 when I called the
700 Club, and gave my life
to the Lord. Years before, I had suffered post traumatic stress disorder
after living through two armed robberies, while working at a Jewelry
store. I witnessed my boss getting shot in the head. It is difficult to
express the fear you experience during something like that. I suffered
nightmares, anxiety, flashbacks, and depression.
take me years of working hard to over come the devastation of the
robberies. I also found out my husband at the time was having an affair.
I remember the day he told me he was in love with another woman. I
blamed my self because I was a mess from the robberies. The heartbreak I
felt was just over whelming. After years of trying to save my marriage,
the marriage ended in divorce. I was left in a terrible emotional, and
financial situation losing our home to foreclosure, after he filed
bankruptcy. I didn’t know how I could ever repay the debt occurred. That
was when I called the 700 Club and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal
savior. I just couldn’t carry my burden any longer. The woman on the
phone gave me a few bible verses to read one of them was. ISAIAH 41:7
carpenter encourages the goldsmith and he that smootheth with the hammer
him that smote the anvil saying, It is ready for soldering and he
fastened with nails, that it should not be moved.
reading that verse, I just sobbed. I didn’t tell the woman from the
700 Club that I was a goldsmith. I felt as if God was speaking directly to
me! As if he said Susan I know you, I heard you, and I am with you. Soon
after that faithful call, I landed a great paying goldsmith job, and in
time was able to pay off my debt. Shortly after that I met my wonderful
husband Shawn, and fell in love. We have been married for ten years, and
have three beautiful daughters, Hannah, Rebecca, and Sarah. Although my
life has up’s and downs like every ones. Through my faith, I can over
come all things.
I feel lead
by God to design my line of jewelry called
Comfort Wear Jewelry™.
All of my jewelry expresses God’s grace and love. The purpose of my
jewelry is to help bring hope and a little comfort to people suffering
through difficult time in their lives. I sure know what it feels like to
go through difficulties in life. I am hopeful that others will be lead
to call upon the name of the Lord by me sharing my story!
So if you
ask me today, what was God telling me in the Verse ISAIAH 41:7 I will
tell you that JESUS the carpenter, has been encouraging me the goldsmith
ever since the day I gave my life to him.
