When I got into the Word, I had just gone through a very hard divorce, and my older daughter had decided to live with her father. I grew up with divorced parents and, therefore, I carried much bitterness, anger, and a judgmental attitude. When I was taught the Word rightly divided from The Way Ministry, I learned to renew my mind to powerful truths from God’s Word, which I never heard before. In the ministry classes I learned that I am a daughter of God, born again of His spirit, and with that, I learned to give thanks well, to praise God perfectly, and how to worship Him in spirit and in truth.
As I grew in God’s Word controlling my mind, my confession and acting on the Word, I became a different person. I no longer had bitterness and anger, but thankfulness, and my attitude toward my ex-husband changed from blaming him for all the failure in our marriage to taking responsibility for my part also. And I began to build a friendship and a respectful relationship without criticism and judgment with my ex-husband. This allowed us to provide for our daughters a better situation where we were partners in raising them. One of the added victories in my life to my responding to the Word I learned was that my older daughter, when she saw my life and the person the Word had helped me to become, said to me, “Mom, you are now ready for me to live with you.”
I dedicated my life to teaching my children the Word and raising them in the household of The Way. Romans 12:2 and II Corinthians 10:5 were the promises I claimed and chose to act on, and the result has been the greatest, sweetest relationship with my daughters and my ex-husband, and we have harmony as we move through the different stages of life. My daughters love God, the Word and the ministry of The Way, and I get to see my grandchildren being raised in the Word. What a joy!
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
II Corinthians 10:5:
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Another major victory in my life has been the comfort of knowing without a shadow of a doubt that I will see my beautiful mother at the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. My mother grew up in a very oppressing religion, but I know my mother had a heart for God and His Word. She was a woman of prayer and loved to give to others. I had the unspeakable joy to lead my mother into the new birth and hear her speak in tongues in our ministry’s Foundational Class.
I thank God daily for The Way Ministry, and I am doing my part so that the next generation has the light of the Word available to them as I stay faithful to the Word I have been taught.
