I am coming back to Christianblog to write and share personal testimony of the experiences I have had with Jesus Christ. We are all called to be witnesses for Jesus. This will be a lengthy series of writings that I am sharing with as many people as possible. I have believed from the time I was born again in Jesus Christ, that I was to write and share this testimony. The time has come to do so. The Holy Spirit even gave me the name for these writings:.Written In My Heart. I will be posting a writing once a week. During my childhood and youth, I was raised attending Sunday School and Church as a Lutheran. I do not know of a time in my life when I did not believe that Jesus was the Son of God. That He died in my place for my sins. Jesus died on the cross for the sins of all of mankind. I......

Written In My Heart: Playing Church (#2) At the time I married, I informed my husband-to-be, who had been attending church with me often, I believed in Jesus and wanted to be active in church after we married. He agreed this would be okay. After our wedding, we made our home in the small town where Bill worked for the Green Giant Co. He grew up on a farm near Le Sueur, Minnesota. I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota. I made a promise, to God or at least in my mind, to go to church and raise our children as church goers. I made sure to join a church of the same Synod. We have three children. They were raised going to Sunday School and each of them was confirmed. In this church, I attended regularly and served as a Sunday School teacher, as Sunday School superintendent and even for a period of......

Written In My Heart: God Called Out My Name (#3) “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.” Isaiah 43:1 Jesus paid the price I could never pay for my sin, for my rebellion toward God. He redeemed me with His own pure blood. He called me by my name. He tells me I belong to Him. This is not only true for me. It is true for all who have been born again in Jesus Christ. This verse quickly became one of my most favorite verses in God’s Word. I love to reflect upon this experience. After leaving the church I had been a member of for some 26 years, I spent about 7 years not attending church. I will never ever forget the awesome thing God did. He reached down to me and audibly called out my name. It was in mid-March of 2001 at about 2 a.m.......

Written In My Heart: “He Who Has Ears To Hear” (#4) In the writing last week, I shared how God called out my name the first time in March of 2001. This week I will share how He spoke my name a second and third time. Check out the Series Titled Written In My Heart for previous writings. It was the first Sunday after I gave and committed my life to Jesus Christ and became born again that God audibly spoke my name a second time. It was Sunday morning, October 7, 2001. The evening before I had told myself I needed to be sure to wake up by 8:30 a.m. in order to get ready and be on time for church. At exactly 8:30 a.m., an audible male voice woke me by speaking my name, Dorothy, into my right ear. I now rarely miss attending church. I love to go to church to worship and hear truth......

Written In My Heart: Lay Up For Yourselves Treasures In Heaven (#5) Moving on in chronological order, I am going to share an event that happened within a month of God calling out my name the first time in March of 2001. It was in early April, I decided to check out the back yard of the historic W. W, Mayo House to begin organizing for the opening day of the tourism season. As I walked across the lawn, something caught my eye. I saw what looked like the telephone wires going into the home had been cut. I went over to the corner of the house and sure enough the lines were cut. I then went to the back door and it was not locked. As, I opened the door, I was totally shocked. The little historic home had been broken into and almost all of the smaller artifacts were gone. The burglars had......

Written In My Heart: Becoming Right With God-Born Again (7) Throughout my teenage years and much of my adult life, I knew within me that I was not in a right relationship with God. I grew up believing that Jesus was the Son of God. I believed that he died on the cross for man’s sin. I believed He rose again from the dead and ascended into heaven. I believed the facts about Jesus. I tried, on my own terms, to respond to this knowledge. Satan and demons believe these facts and they are not and cannot be saved. I had head knowledge. But, what was missing was surrender, a surrender of my “self will.” What was missing was an actual personal relationship with Jesus. I was not walking with Jesus. I was not in a right relationship with God. Somehow, I had some understanding of......

Written In My Heart: The Holy Spirit Must Draw You to Jesus (#6) Everyone who has repented and given their life to Jesus Christ, I believe, recognizes through their own experience that it is the Holy Spirit who works to draw a person to Jesus Christ. In the previous writings of this series, I shared how God must first call you to Himself. Then, the Holy Spirit awakens you to your need for a Savior and enables you to come to a point of repentance with a desire to surrender to God. Following are the experiences I had as the Holy Spirit drew me to Jesus in August and September of 2001. What is important to understand is that each and every person is born with the desire to sin. This is referred to as a sinful nature that we have all inherited from "Adam." Because of the bondage of......

Written In My Heart: Indwelling of the Holy Spirit (8) The focus of last week’s writing was on my becoming born again in Jesus Christ. This most wonderful event happened in the early morning of Tuesday, October 2, 2001. I repented of my sin toward God, gave up my “self” and gave my life to God and made the commitment to follow and serve Jesus for the rest of my life. It is at this very moment of Jesus cleansing me of my sin toward God that my body became the temple of the Holy Spirit. I literally felt the Holy Spirit come down upon me and enter my body. The Holy Spirit had come to live within me. I was and am no longer my own. I belong to God. What a difference this has made in my life. Paul’s letter to believers in Corinth said this: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NKJV)......

Written In My Heart: Jesus Healed My Physical Heart (#9) After being born again and filled with the Holy Spirit on Tuesday, October 2, 2001, one of the first phrases the Holy Spirit spoke to me was "put your house in order." He did not tell me I was going to die, but since early September I had the sense I was dying and this sense of death lingered over me. I am ashamed of how I abused my physical body over the years by not taking care of myself and not being able to establish healthy eating and exercise habits. As I repented, early that Tuesday morning I wept for two and a half hours as I called out to God. On the third day after being born again, I made appointments with a family practitioner and the cardiologist who had cared for me at the time I had a stroke in February......

Written in My Heart: Death to Life Experience Part 1 (#11) Moving on with personal testimony to the second month after I was born again in Jesus Christ. Words cannot adequately express the overall delight in our God and His ways that I felt as Jesus revealed Himself through this painful death to life experience. The experience was most precious! On or about November 7, 2001, as I was meditating, I suddenly felt a sharp pain in the very center of the top of my left foot. The pain was concentrated in one small round spot about the size of the tip of a small finger. My thoughts turned to Jesus and nails being driven into His feet. Two evenings later the same thing happened, but, this time the sharp pain was concentrated in one small round spot about the size of the tip of a small finger in......

Written In My Heart: God’s Assignment (#10) I have started to share the awesome work done by the Holy Spirit after I surrendered to God. I now hear the Holy Spirit speak within me; most often by guiding my thoughts, but, at times by directly hearing Him speak within in a calm soft voice. In this writing, I will testify to the ministry assignment given that first month, October 2001. On the night when my spirit was regenerated, October 2, 2001, and I was "born again," I felt this sense of urgency as if there was something Jesus wanted me to do. I earnestly prayed to know what it was Jesus had prepared in advance for me to do. The Holy Spirit spoke within me this revelation on Saturday (a Sabbath), October 27, 2001: Minister to Children, Focus on the Young, These Little Ones......

Written in My Heart: Death to Life Experience Part 2 (#12) It would be good to reread Part 1 to follow this writing. The final biopsy results, which were brought to me two days later seemed to confirm that what I had experienced was a rupture resulting in an internal bleed. The multiple masses floating inside my body cavity were coagulated blood and not cancerous tumors. In three days I went from a pronouncement of death to a newness of LIFE. This whole experience revolved around the shedding of blood! Jesus did not cause the internal bleed, but He definitely used the experience for good. I am still in awe that Jesus allowed me to share in this way a taste of His suffering on the cross. The pain in the very center of my left foot. Two days later, pain in the very center of my left hand.......

Written in My Heart: Baptism With The Holy Spirit – Speaking in Tongues (#13) The first Baptism with the Holy Spirit literally took place on the Day of Pentecost. Its purpose was to give the apostles and believers in Jesus Christ the power to go out and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and do God's work throughout the world. Jesus, after His resurrection and in His glorified body, was able to breathe His Spirit into the apostles as told to us in John 20: 22 (NIV) "And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit." At the time we become saved we receive the Spirit of Christ - referred to as the Holy Spirit. When our life belongs to Jesus and we are walking with Jesus, Jesus abides in us and we abide in Him.
