December 23rd 2009 was the beginning. I began on a journey that would change my life forever. I was faced with a debilitating illness that no doctor could find the cause for. In the early stages of my illness God lead me to read the book of Job and he told me that I was going through my own Job experience. He then led me to write down all of my experiences which evolved into this book. I didn’t know it then but my illness would catapult me into realizing God’s purpose for my life. It is my hope that my experience can inspire someone else to continue trusting God no matter what obstacles they may face. My illness is just one part of this book. I have experienced so many ups and downs and my relationship with God has increased dramatically since this all began. I have learned to lean and depend on God even more and I know that he is always with me no matter how long it takes to come out of my storm. This Job experience is my test to make sure that I am ready and prepared to carry out the call of God on my life.
Margaret H. Wesley currently resides in NC with her three sons; Jamaal Jr-7, and twins Jamison and Javon-3. She is devoted full time to her craft of writing and is also very passionate about singing. Her biggest hope is that she will continue to be used by God and show the love of Christ in her everyday life.
I’ve always been a church girl. I grew up in a two parent home and going to church and Sunday school was just a part of our lives. It was as normal to me as getting up in the morning and eating breakfast. I learned to love God at an early age and music was something that gave me a connection to him. I was in the children’s choir at church but I was kind of shy. I always sang with the choir but the thought of leading a song terrified me. It was no problem for my family to hear my voice but I was afraid of leading a song in front of so many people. My aunt was visiting one day and she convinced me to finally stand up and let my voice be heard. That was over 20 years ago and I’m still singing for God to this day. I didn’t realize it then but singing is my ministry. It’s the gift that God put inside me to be used for his kingdom. I have perfected my gift over the years and tried to be obedient to the call over my life. One thing I’ve learned over the years is that the enemy doesn’t want you to ever discover the gifts that God has for you but more importantly he doesn’t want you to use those talents and gifts to bring someone to Christ. The significance of learning the will of God for your life is that you will be tested and you will be tried. I’ve had many good things happen in my life and many tragedies as well. But the real test of my life so far came during the Christmas holiday of 2009.
When my illness first began I had no idea where it would take me or how long I would be going through it. I’ve always been kind of sickly so I thought it was just another small battle that I would have to face.
