Hi. I'm MamaG with the G being the first initial of my name. I live in Mississippi (northern part) and am a wife and mother. I have been married for almost 24 years and have a 22-year-old and 15-year-old son. I am a WAHM doing medical transcription. I love God more than words can express. I am very active in our local Church of God church. I am originally from Louisiana and was a Catholic (in name only, certainly not devout) until moving to MS. I received salvation while attending an Assembly of God Church after moving to MS. I have a very, very long history to turmoil and have spent most of my life sweeping it under the rug. I have a long past of being a very ugly person. I have a long history of terrible health problems. I just have a horrible history! LOL But I rather focus on who I am today in Christ. I am currently attending counseling with a Christian counselor (who is a God-send) and learning how to let these bondages go and let God heal me. My mother and 93-year-old great aunt live with my husband, myself, and my 15-year-old. This past two years have been tough. Within nine months' time, my father-in-law and father were both diagnosed with terminal cancer within the same week, my son became engaged, my father-in-law died, my son got married, my father died, my husband's grandma died, my son left for Iraq, and my siblings alienated me. I could tell of time and time again God has delivered me, healed me, and just "showed out" by the magnificent things He does, but I am having a hard time getting past those nine months.
Working at home, I tend to be secluded from the world. I have multiple health issues, most due to weight, and sometimes just feel secluded from the world. I battled thoughts in myself about joining a forum because I also have a history of inappropriate internet chat. I have been delivered from that for over 12 years now, but I think it is like alcoholism. You just never completely forget where you came from and where you are now.
With all that said, I am hoping to find interesting conversation about Bible studies, spiritual growth, and just all around praise about who God is. I love my Savior with every ounce of my being and I thank God that He has set me free and delivered me from the snare of the fowler. I love that old song...without Him I could do nothing!
