Just As I Am
I was a young seventeen year old student nurse in a large Sydney hospital.
My best friend Yvonne, persuaded me to attend a church rally.
It was the first time I had ever been to one of those.
I was a shy niave country girl.
Towards the end of the service this song was sung.
Tears rolled down my face as the Words hit home.
Jesus had died for me.
I gave my heart to Him completly that night, and the Holy Spirit filled me with His healing power.
The years of hurt, fear, lonliness and dread disappeared, as I knelt at that Altar, and accepted Him.
An Author since 2012 and retired Registered Nurse. I reside in sub-tropical Queensland, Australia, with my American husband Raymond and our three little dogs. Monty (Australian Terrier,) Mille` (Toy Foxy), and Marley (Toy Poodle). Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens. We are reminded through our faith in Jesus that He will, "Turn our Mourning into Dancing and our Sorrow into Joy." Psalms 30:11. Having personally experienced tough times I know, there is truely no gain without pain. South Western Sydney Area Health, Queensland Health, LATE OF ROGERSVILLE, TENESSEE and Amedysis Home Health.
