My name is Pam Parrott, and this is a story about how God did something amazing in my life…
A little over a month ago I reached a low point in my life. I felt very discouraged and confused about a lot of things. There have been some things in my past, going back to my childhood, that have had a major impact on my life, relationships, self esteem, and overall outlook on life.
I didn’t know what to do, and I was a breaking point.
So I did something I’ve never really done before…I picked up the phone and contacted Milestone to ask for help. That phone call led me to being in a small group, and in that small group God showed up. I surrendered my life to Jesus two weeks ago at Freedom Weekend and from that moment on SO MUCH has changed!
Ok, so this may sound a little strange, but during Freedom Weekend, I felt like God said something to me. He told me to find a woman that I had seen a glimpse of on Friday night at church, but He didn’t tell me what I was supposed to say or do when I found her.
So all day Saturday I looked EVERYWHERE but never found her. I felt like I had failed. I prayed Saturday, Sunday, and Monday about it. As I was getting ready on Monday morning I was listening to worship music and I just closed my eyes, raised my hands, and started singing.
Then God said, “Open your eyes.”
I ignored it because I don’t really like looking at myself in the mirror, but I heard it again…“Open your eyes.” So this time I did. And there in the mirror was the person I was searching for all day Saturday. I saw a beautiful woman of God standing before me, hands lifted in praise and tears streaming down my face. God is so good and awesome in power!
I was able to let go and see myself how God sees me.
Life may not be perfect, but I can tell you this. I’m overwhelmed with thankfulness. God sees me and He loves me in spite of my past. Not only that, but for the first time in a long time I’m seeing myself and those around the way God does, and I’m so excited for all He has for me!
