STORIES OF FAITH
Sally Morgan's Story
I lived with husband who was macho and was raised to leave home to do
things such as drink and have friends and spending time at the home with
He was a major drinker and he was totally different when he drank and
was dangerous to let drive and to try to work with him during that time.
I went through a growth myself...what do I want and what am I willing to
do to reach it.
I left a church for being a church of love while the knife was bleeding
for their attacks and was publicly put on the alter for asking how love
well I found the close walk with God ...first he had talked to me about
learning to say NO...and he drove it home one night when I missed a
phone pole and jumped the dirt culvert and did not over turn but I did
have to call for my dh as I took one tire off the rim and could not
drive the car. I did hear his voice and I learned to fade out of
commitments and to consider what I should do and not just think I was to
Well when I got close to God a few years later I decided I would not
make divorce easy and I would do what my husband said even if he fault
me all the way.
He did..he took my privledge to go to the grocery
store, drive the car (checked gauge), limited my phone calls and I
followed his words. He told me he was sick of hearing me talk so I
never spoke to him and he was mad in a few days but he learned that i
was going to stick to this project. I prayed constantly and I put
scripture pages from the small bible I bought to do this project
with...I put them under his seat in the truck I put it in his closet, in
his billfold ...folded small so as to be not seen...I put in under his
bed under his chair and I prayed and prayed ....I completed cleansed the
house and the property and made a place for angels...I grew in my
faith....I prayed he would not b ring his attitude to the house then to
the property and then to the street and he could not figure what was
happening but he knew he was in a battle...
I was granted a vision of him in his struggle...he was in chains and was
pulled by two forces to claim him..I was able to be more understanding
when I saw the vision and so I gave him water in a glass when he asked
for it like a King...and this went on for 18 months but the final came
when I least expected it...He asked me to jump into the pool ..I had
just got dressed up washed my hair and was all together.....but i opened
the door and walked out to the pool with him jumping up to follow...and
I was stopped only by him saying why are you doing this? because you
asked me to!!! I will do what you ask...I told you. He said it was not
necessary to do this but it was the turning point.
I had small children
but I was determined that it took my energy and my constant praying to
stick to this. He refused to go to Marriage Encounter but he agreed
anyway and we went and we talked and worked through our differences. He
was confused that I disagreed with him if I had an opinion different
from his ... not just have an opinion.but was against him. His mother
left him as a 2 mo old and he bore those scars into our marriage but he
is now able to see that he wasted the best years of our life and has
given up drinking, smoking and comes home faithfully. I was always
honest with him and even when he got a dui I did not go and get
him....he learned that I would serve God and when my children were in
high school he wanted me to go to the job out of town for 4 days...my
parents came down on me with both feet but he told them I am to abide by
my husband and so we went and the children were perfect ... I talked to
them and trusted them and went with him.
I have a dh who I can be proud of and he sees drinking and macho
attitude got him no where but it drove me away and we now can work
together as we grow old and it is always God who stands and helps us
through each of them...
Having been in a car twice to be hit by a driver speeding through a red
light I know he made me hesitate as I don't normally do that. I know he
is with us and I try to share this with others without preaching. God
is with us and we only have to keep him inside of us each day....and
know...know ... He is with us. My mom has grown to be a pray warrior
and I depend on her to keep it a job for our family and I know that she
has knowledge that i can use and I enjoy her strength and know I can say
God did this and know they understand. My children are going to learn
as they grow how it is the most wonderful wonder on this earth.
May God protect you and keep you and you may feel his love surround you
when it is so low and that he is with you on the mountaintops. Without
the valleys you get no mountain top experience, I like the rolling hills
best that way I don't have to go through the lowest and highest but have
a nice roll of his love in my life.
May God bless you and keep you as you are A Child of God.
