Yep that is right, my story is His story, because He is the author and finisher of my faith. Have you had a chance to watch the interview?
I was so glad when the producer of the show gave me permission to be very enthusiastic, keeping a smile on my face and not being afraid to talk with my hands. Ah, I could just be “me”. If you did not get a chance to watch it live, you can now go to this website and scroll down to Episode 80 and wallah there it is.
After you watch the interview, you may be wondering what happened with my mother. Well because I ran out of time, I didn’t get a chance to tell everyone how wonderful the ending truly is. I really have a lot to say about His goodness in my life!
My mother has quite a testimony as well, and I share more of that story in my book. However, inquiring minds want to know now, so I will tell you that God brought about a powerful restoration with us. My mom is now saved, and living daily for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She has come out of even way more mud than I did, and God is using her in her neighborhood now. She loves to tell His story in her life as well.
She watched the interview, and she was so proud of me, and just exclaimed, “Jodie, God has really brought us so far”. This interview really brightened my mother’s day to see how much the Lord has done in my life, and she thanks the Lord that I led her out of the lifestyle she was living. God works His story in mysterious yet glorious ways.
Happy Mother’s Day!
