Blessed With a Friend

Blessed With a Friend

Today's Miracle Monday is a sweet story from Sister Elizabeth Azzinaro. This one's for the school-age kids out there who need a friend.

This is something that happened to me 19 years ago, but I felt like sharing to show that God can light up our darkest hour.

Of all the things we face, it is sad that bullying is still quite commonplace. It happened to me when I was in the fourth grade. A tough guy named Jeffrey was bullying me — probably because he was not getting nearly enough attention at home and he sought his attention through other means.

Two Flights, One Wedding, and Lots of Prayers

Two Flights, One Wedding, and Lots of Prayers

Today's Miracle Monday is a testimony of praise written by Sister Valerie Dulisse.

God takes care of every situation when we fervently pray! Our son, Steven, and soon-to-be daughter in law, Chelsie, were to be married in Hawaii on August 1.

My husband, Chuck, had recently passed out on an airplane, and when he had a nuclear stress test, the doctor found two blocked arteries. They immediately scheduled a heart catheterization, which they said had to be done a day after we were scheduled to fly out for the wedding. The doctor told Chuck that he should not fly until this was taken care of, even though Chuck told him our son was getting married.

His Instrument … Always

His Instrument … Always

For today's Miracle Monday, we're bringing you a testimony of God's timing from Sister Pat Valenti.

We all at times have things in life that weigh on us. For a period of time, it seemed that I was stuck in a downward spiral emotionally, causing me to somewhat withdraw and feel extreme anxiety.

When God Watered My Plants

When God Watered My Plants

At home, I have quite a large collection of indoor and outdoor plants. I thank my grandpa, Brother Russ Martorana, for my green thumb. The indoor ferns help to clean the indoor air, and the outdoor plants are great for harvesting (herbs, tomatoes, basil) and provide overall plant therapy!

The week before GMBA camp, the temperature at home had been climbing into the triple digits during the daytime, and I was watering my plants daily to keep them from getting burned or dried out.

Now, this may seem a bit trivial, but I've been nurturing some of them for four years, and I was pretty concerned about them dying when I went to camp. Plants need plenty of water; in 100-degree temperatures they can die in less than a day sometimes.

Behind the Scenes of 'Stand Up'

Behind the Scenes of 'Stand Up'

For today's Miracle Monday, we reached out to Sister Rosanne Champine and asked her to share some of the stories behind several of the songs that the Lord has given her. This particular story is about the song "Stand Up for the Restoration."

In the early 1980s, the General Church began preparing for the upcoming World Missionary Conference (the first of its kind). I had recently begun sharing a few songs God had given me and was asked if I would pray about a song that might help convey the story of Joseph, which would be told in photographs. I was not given anything more specific than that. So, pray I did … and the Lord began working with me.

The Songs of Zion Bring Comfort and Peace

Written by Sister Karen Watford on Thursday, 12 July 2018. Posted in Testimonies Hits 564

The Songs of Zion Bring Comfort and Peace

My husband, Vaughn, passed away unexpectedly on October 25, 2017. We had been married for 48 years. Our two sons and their families and I miss him so very much.

After he passed away and all my family returned home, I was working in the kitchen and realized for the first time I could listen to my music, the Songs of Zion, any time and as loud as I wanted. Previously, sounds caused Vaughn to have severe tremors, so I tried to be as quiet as possible. I ran to the stereo and turned on the Songs of Zion — loud!

The first words sung were, "Jesus put His arms around me, brought me through a valley deep, to a mountain high and holy…" (No. 194, "Holy, Holy, Holy") I felt like Jesus had His arms around me as the song played. I felt such love, compassion, and peace enter into my body, heart, and soul. My body trembled, and I cried with the joy and peace and love that came into me. This lasted approximately 20 minutes.

I found out that a day or two prior to this, a sister in the church had a vision in which she saw Jesus hugging me.

Freely Receive, Freely Give

Freely Receive, Freely Give

Today's Miracle Monday is the conversion testimony of the late Brother Matthew T. Miller, as recorded in the July 1945 issue of The Gospel News.

I left Jamaica in 1919, spent one year in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and in 1920 left Cuba and entered Tuskegee Institute, Alabama. I finished a seven-year course in Bible Training and Academics, with a satisfactory record in respect to scholarship, labor, and deportment, in three years, graduating May 24, 1923 as a nondenominational minister.

A Good Worker

A Good Worker

Today's Miracle Monday is dedicated to all of you out there who are currently in the process of building a new church building. It's a testimony told by Sister Sylvia Curry, and we promise it'll draw you in.

I worked for General Ribbon, a factory that produced carbon paper, typewriter ribbon, and other related supplies. It was owned and operated by an older gentleman named Mr. Daggs. He had the reputation of being a kindhearted man. The night I got hired, I knelt down beside my bed and sincerely asked the Lord to make me a good worker for these people.

The Quiet Need

Written by Sister Rosanne Champine on Monday, 04 June 2018. Posted in Testimonies Hits 505

The Quiet Need

Today's Miracle Monday is a very sweet experience and song that we asked Sister Rosanne Champine to share with us. 

One Sunday in church, when it came time for anointing, I was so surprised to see an older sister walk up and sit in the chair. This sister represented to me great spiritual strength and wisdom. As a ‘mother’ to all the Saints, she was always concerned about others, helping and tending to their needs, serving as a wonderful spiritual example. It never occurred to me that SHE might need something from the Lord.

The Conversion of Brother Richard Lowman of Tarsus

The Conversion of Brother Richard Lowman of Tarsus

For today's Miracle Monday, we're sharing a conversion testimony from Brother Richard Lowman from Ft. Worth, Texas. Enjoy!

I met my beautiful bride, Gina (Jones) almost eight years ago after the passing of her husband. Gina and I dated for a short time, and we got married.

I am almost 53 years old and was raised in a Southern Baptist Church for my whole life — and my brother is a Baptist minister, and he and I definitely talk about spiritual things. I always got along with Gina's dad, Brother Ken Jones, but his wife, Sister Bennie, and I would get into deep religious "arguments" — the silliest of things looking back. Gina and I also became close friends with Brother Jerry and Sister Linda Morle, and I'd talk with Brother Jerry about the differences in our faiths.

Have You Considered My Servant Job?

Written by Sister Cathy Genaro on Monday, 09 April 2018. Posted in Testimonies Hits 523

Have You Considered My Servant Job?

Many times life throws us a curveball. It seems to come out of nowhere, and it changes the course of our lives forever. How do we handle it? How do we prove faithful when an enormous trial comes our way? We can look to the life of Job.

Imagine for a moment that we are walking in Job’s shoes. We have been blessed beyond measure — a beautiful family, nice home, possessions — and God has placed a hedge of protection around us.

Along comes Satan. He notices us praising God for the blessed life we have, and he decides to have a talk with the Lord about us.

Changed Completely in a Moment

Changed Completely in a Moment

Today's Miracle Monday is a must-read conversion story from the Ricci family, as told by Brother Tony Ricci.

I was raised in the Christian faith of my father, and my mother was a devout Buddhist. Throughout the years, my extended family and others made many attempts to convert my mother. Every one was met with cursing and mocking — that a man would die on a cross for the sake of others. The very thought was silly to my mother.

Proof Through the Night

Proof Through the Night

For today's Miracle Monday, we're sharing a testimony and beautiful thoughts of reflection by Brother Jason Monaghan.

As we enjoyed the Winter Olympics this year — well, what we were able to catch — it yet again brings that sense of pride that we have in our great country. This year, God gave me a special blessing as I listened to the divinely inspired words once scribed by Francis Scott Key back on September 14, 1814. (Please remember that date.) As I listened to the words, I could see the scene that was unfolding before him as he wrote what has now been accepted as our national anthem! Here are just a few:

Got the Prompt

Written by Sister Erin Light on Thursday, 01 March 2018. Posted in Testimonies Hits 773

Got the Prompt

I've passed the 90-day mark at my new job, and I am loving it. I learn new information daily, and I'm becoming more and more comfortable in my new role. And every morning before I go to work, I try to start off my day with the Lord.

I pray before I pick up my phone. I blast the Gaithers or scriptures on audio while getting ready, and I listen to a Christian radio station on my commute. It's a pretty good routine, and gets me started off right.

That's a Bad Man

Written by Sister Colleen Moore on Tuesday, 27 February 2018. Posted in Testimonies Hits 674

That's a Bad Man

I believe God speaks to us in many ways. He answers our prayers. He gives us dreams and experiences. He whispers. He can speak to us through sermons, songs, and the testimonies of others. Sometimes, He speaks to us through our sweet, innocent children, too. He did that when our oldest son was a toddler, and I want to share that with you today.
