A theme which some hearts have been very passionate about is faith and religion- often the stories are about a time when faith was severely tested, or about the first time an individual realised they had faith. For anyone who is not religious, it is very interesting to read the stories, and hear about a love between a person and their God that is incredibly strong.
"My daughter and her husband were overjoyed, when after eleven years of marriage, it was confirmed she was pregnant.
The pregnancy went well, but when she went into labour the midwife advised a hospital birth because she felt unsettled, and so the advice was taken.
Our son-in-law promised to ring my wife and I as soon as he had news and so we waite. Both my wife and I are Christians and so we prayed and waited.
Four days later we were still waiting, our prayers were frantic and my faith minimal.
Just after midnight on the 17th of October, as I prayed a wonderful feeling of confidence, peace, elation and praise came over me, and I told my wife all was well, ten minutes later our son-in-law rang and confirmed that our beautiful grandson had been born.
This was a moment full of tension, worry, and apprehension, of joy, grattitude and praise.
Thanks giving to Almighty God.”
"The most heartfelt decision I ever made was in April 1957 when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour. Being a Christian is a terrific wonderful journey and I am still on the journey, a work in progress.
Be still and know that I am God
Psalm 46, verse 10
