About The Author

My Eternal Story….

I was foreknown by God before I was intricately formed in my mother’s womb.  I was predestined way back, before I even had the chance to do right or wrong, to be conformed to the image of Christ.  I was called via the Gospel of Jesus Christ and my faith came by hearing the word of God.  When I placed my trust in Jesus as my only means of salvation, I was justifed through the free gift of grace alone and was put in right relationship once again with the Father.  Now while on this temporary home called earth, I’ve been made a new creation, redeemed and restored and am being transformed from one degree of glory to another until finally, I will be presented spotless and glorified at the final resurrection!
(See Romans 8:29 – 30)

My Earthly Story…

Rejected at birth, my childhood years were traumatic and I lived in an atmosphere of aggression, neglect, fear, abuse, alcoholism, violence, loneliness and despair.

I came out of my childhood with absolutely nothing.  I had no clue about love because I had never been shown love.  When your needs aren’t met, you stop needing so I stopped needing at a young age.  I became super independent and went off into young adulthood with a great big dose of self-hatred, a lack of self-esteem & self-worth, which I covered up with travelling, partying, drink, drugs and promiscuity.

In my late twenties I finally settled and married but by this time was manifesting the fruit of my childhood in a variety of negative ways.

By my mid 30’s I was bedridden ill with M.E (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis), which lasted four and a half years in all.  In that time, my husband and I got divorced and I ended up alone, in a cottage with a cat and a diseased body.  It was scary and I thought my life was over. God had other plans though!…Salvation plans!!!

I had previously said there was no such thing as Jesus.  Alone in bed however, having finally come to the end of myself, I ran into the arms of my Saviour as God un-blinded my eyes, unstopped my ears and called to me through the Good News of His Son.  I responded to that call and it led to me to starting a journey of becoming conformed into the image of His Son.

I have been truly reborn…a new creation and am His ongoing workmanship.  I have been healed both physically and to a great degree, mentally, emotionally and of course spiritually.  Although God’s work is never done in us, I have been utterly re-wired in all ways and I’ve let go of my old life entirely, it’s ways, it’s habits, it’s standards.

After a season of nearly 5 years serving as a Church caretaker and leading a discipleship group of 20’s & 30’s, I’ve been called to my hardest ministry yet, that of wife and of step-mum to five. It is now November 2016 and I haven’t posted anything for the last 3 years, until, this evening. My time has been taken up learning the ropes of my new life and it has not come easy at all. Three of my five step-children live with us, three boys and with absolutely no mothering experience of my own to bring to the table, it has (and continues to be), the steepest learning curve of my life!

Thanks be to Father God, Christ Jesus and the Holy Spirit for guiding me through every moment of every day!

    • Thanks for taking the time to share in the Word with me. It still astounds me that God can, and continues, to take someone (me) who was soooooooo selfish and increasingly show me the light that it’s all about Him. The more I get it, the freer I become. By letting go, I grow! (Now there’s the title of a post if ever I heard one! ). God bless you 🙂 x

  1. What a story of redemption! Isn’t that just how our loving Abba wants to rescue all of us…and make us beautiful, the way He can do in his truth, love, and power? Loved reading this. It reminds me of the precious way He did the same for me. We have a bit in common… ❤
    Thank you for being vulnerable.

  2. Sharon,
    It is wonderful to hear the story of God’s love in how He sought you! I am grateful to find one of my sisters in Christ, one that has been touched and changed in an amazing way by the hand of God.

    • Thank you Dan, for taking the time to read and for appreciating the goodness of God’s mercy over my life. I look forward to being greatly inspired and edified by your blog. It would be great to know your story too brother?…who is the man behind the wisdom? Ha ha 🙂 Testimony is so powerful and encouraging! God bless 🙂

  3. What a moving testimony of courage and God’s redemptive grace. You’re not that sinful woman anymore, you’re a woman of beauty and grace, beloved by your Father in heaven. It shines through you. I can see Him smiling over you. Papa is very proud of His daughter!

    Thanks for being willing to share your pain and journey of faith, it’s inspiring and I’m sure is a blessing to many, and will be to many more in the future. And thanks for the follow on my blog. By it, I got a chance to see yours. 🙂

    • It’s a blessing to have you onboard Steve, we so need each other on this journey, to encourage in whatever way the Lord uses, blogs and’ all! I look forward to having a good look at your page too. God Bless you and yours 🙂

  4. Beautiful testimony! I thought I would only be able to read the short version for time’s sake, but once I started your long version, I couldn’t stop till the end. Praise The Lord for His redemptive love! Thank you for sharing!

  5. Wow Shar, I know you so much better now. What a testimony! BOOM! Glory to God, more power to you for holding onto Him all that time, and look at what the loyalty and trust has brought about, … treasure in a jar of clay..

    • There have been a good few times when I’ve been audibly “called”. Each came after a period of Him having prepared me for some time and then finally I just heard Him. To me it is like a crisp, clear instruction goes boom. The voice is my usual internal voice but there’s a deep richness that comes with the words that hits straight to the heart. It’s deep calling to deep..His heart to mine. I would say in these instances the difference is, is that it by passes the head and hits the heart straight off. And it makes you go “Whoaaaa” or “wow”..or often times “Ohhhhhh!” Then I ask for encouragement/confirmation/scripture. Sometimes that’s needed but sometimes not. If I’m ever in doubt I weigh it up by some things…is it in line with scripture, do I have inner peace (the bible says let peace be an umpire) but the best thing is, after sitting on it for a while, how do I feel about NOT doing it?!! That really does help me assess my peace gauge.
      Throughout my walk with God, while some about me were driving themselves nuts, I’ve always stood on the scripture…seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all things will be added to me. Therefore, I look at Him and in doing that I have naturally walked into any calling He has for me. No human striving, just trusting Him, worshipping Him and He does the rest. If you are focused on God, if He is your vital necessity, your all, you won’t miss what He has for you.
      I really hope that helps. LOL x

  6. Such a beautiful testimony and beautifully written. Sorry to repeat the beautiful word from your last comment; but that’s what I feel and believe. I love your poetry too! God bless you and your ministry.

    • There can never be enough ‘beautifulness’ in my world now! Isn’t our God sooooo good. So glad to have you here. God Bless (love the little kitty pic…I will forever miss the cat I gave up 😦 a sacrifice isn’t a sacrifice, unless it’s a sacrifice!)

      • I’m so sorry about your cat. I love them so much also and sadly get way, way to attached to them. Amen to your sacrifice comment. Praying the Lord will bless you some other day with a new furry friend. Thank you for your follow … xxx

  7. That is quite an awesome testimony, Sharon. Thanks for sharing it and I hope others come across it and are likewise inspired to know Jesus for themselves.
