Testimonies from Show Low, AZ

We had 3 1/2 hours of testimonies this morning, with individuals confessing sin, repenting, and seeking forgiveness!!! Fathers restored to their wives and children, children restored to their parents, men and women sharing about returning to the Lover of their soul, Jesus Christ!! We give Him the glory for all He has done.

"I have been living in such sin that I had pushed past my conscience into... numbness. This week, God has begun to give me my conscience back. I've had so many idols in my life, and I wasn't giving God time."

Husband - "I suffer from anxiety. Actually, I use it as an excuse to get out of things. I've also suffered from depression. I didn't know what it meant to spriitually lead my wife. I have embraced so many worldly things, including pornography. I need God's help to be the man that I need to be for my family."
His wife - "I give all the glory to God for what He's doing in our lives. This past year, I have overcome an alcohol addiction and I've never known how not to lead. The Lord has shown me this week that my role is to be the wife. Not to be the strong one, but to let my husband lead."

"God has removed my bitterness, anger and selfishness. He has given me His joy!! I've lost 10 poumds on the inside!!"

"Last December, my husband left me. I thought I had good reason to be bitter and angry. I now know I have to lift God's Word above my emotions and be obedient and forgive, recognizing it's the first step to my healing."

"I have lived in total and utter darkness. Broken home. Broken marriage. Broken soul. God said to me, 'Hear my Word. Open your eyes. Put your trust in Me. I will never leave you nor forsake you.' I have been separated for 6 months, and this week, I have immersed myself in His Word. Thursday night, my wife sat beside me!! I praise Him and thank you for your prayers!!"

"I have been sexually abused. I wanted to forgive, but not from my heart. This week, God showed me that I needed to forgive from my heart, and with His help, I have done that."

New Mexico THIRST conference and El Paso THIRST conference testimonies

"This conference woke me up about my leadership at home with my wife and kids. I need to ask my son for forgiveness for not teaching him how to be a spiritual leader."

" Our family has been going through alot of battles, and the Lord has shown me that I can't change others. I need to allow God to change me. I have not obeyed the Lord in the area of my marriage. I need to be my husband's helper, his cheerleader. Wow! Just with that truth, there has been a tremendous change in my family. Thank you so much for coming. Also, the Lord is doing a work in my 3 teenage children who have been blessed by your ministry."

"This revival conference has been life changing for me. I now understand my role as a father, husband, and follower of Christ."

"I am 17 years old. I left my home the Thursday before the Sunday that your team got here. I left my house for 4 days and I came to the Sunday service. Because of what God did Sunday morning, my family is closer and we are working together to draw near to God. Thank you."

"I am convicted about the need to show my husband the respect and honor he deserves. I have a wonderful husband and he deserves more from me. I started the 30-day Husband Encouragement Challenge today and have asked my 14-year-old daughter to hold me accountable. My husband is one of God's sweetest gifts to me."

"My husband and I have connected on a level that we never have before. Praise God for what He is doing in my life!!"

It's so great when men start praying with their wives. Just listen to these testimonies from wives in a recent summit.

"This week has been amazing, exhausting, but most importantly, it has been convicting. God has revealed truths to me that I didn't want to hear. I hope and pray that my family will NEVER be the same again. It hasn't stopped with me - my husband cancelled a business trip to attend this revival (that's nothing short of a miracle). He also sat on the side of our bed and prayed with me for the first time in our 14 year marriage!! My two young daughters have also been touched this week. I praise God for working in each of our lives individually and also as a family. I'm excited about where we are going and I'm praying for open hearts and obedient spirits. Thank you for coming - for giving of yourselves."

"On Thursday, my husband received a call to do some work with the State Attorney's office (he is a retired attorney). He has not had a call in the 4 years he has been retired. He will take this job at current attorney fees - and it speaks to his integrity for his past work - also his character. My husband and I took hands and prayed about this before he gave his answer - something we had never done before the revival!!!"

"It has been a true blessing from God to have you all with us here in Farmington. Personally, I have been challenged to be H.O.T. (honest, open, and transparent). The messages confirmed my desires to be obedient to God in ways He will surely reveal. Also, a miracle occured when my husband of 34 years took my hand on Tuesday night before we went to sleep and said, "Let's pray together." We hadn't done that for 30+ years!!! There in the dark, I had the biggest smile on my face as he began to pray. Praise God and may He bless you all in your work."

"This week has been great to help direct me in my marriage. We have been married 27 years and the last several years have been a struggle. Threats of leaving and divorce have been a common convesation at our home. In the past 6 months, we have really been trying to listen to what we know God's plan is for our lives. This week's lessons on marriage have helped me open my heart more to listen rather than talk. It has helped my husband express himself better. I will continue to seek God's will and please pray for us!!"

Testimony from a recent summit -

"This week, I was broken, lost, tempted by the world, ready to give up on my marriage. I have been tempted to be unfaithful to my husband. He has been very sick with several mental, stress disorders. I felt defeated. Every message this week seemed to be directed to me and opened my eyes to the person I had become. Godless, hopeless, unfaithful, bitter, and unhappy. This revival opened my heart up to hear God's Word and to change my heart. God has shown me how to be a godly wife and mother and He reminded me of the grace God wants to give me. My heart had hardened so much and I didn't even realize it. I have been talking with my husband and my daughter has used the Life Action worksheets from Base Camp to bring the Word to my husband. Praise God!!"
