I look normal now thank God for the last corrective surgery, the chronic injuries are deceptive as you can not see the extent of the pain from just looking at me..

Look forward to more fellowships with all here and you as well..

God bless

Thank God for givening us that which we did not have and not givening us that which we do not want .

Rodger, what a great testimony, AMEN! I think its amazing how we all come from many differant backgrounds but we all seem to be able to find something in our testimonies that we are familiar with. I heard a preacher one time say that the 'world teaches that all paths lead to Jesus, dont believe this lie.' Funny how it seems to me that each of us have our own path to walk and each with its own experiences, tests and trials and some where along that path it DOES lead to Jesus!

Thanks for sharing brother,
Keep on keeping on getting busy with the business of being who you are because of who HE IS

Very well recieved, is your warmth.

Yes many fallacies i am still finding that religion quelched in me soooooo many moons ago.

Just goes to show, how so you are right on our paths with Jesus each in thier own pace as God wills and each individual, but yet still we are one.

Thanks again

Well I'm glad to hear that it is  another female. because I wouldn't have been in accord if you would have been back together with your ex after what she has done to you.

I'm happy for you Brother, and May God Bless you both.

Thank you for bringing this thread forward Dean.

I see that you Rodger have been given a most precious experience of intimacy with Christ. You will certainly be able to relate to Him when you meet Him at His return I believe, because He too was....despised and rejected and forsaken by men, A Man of sorrows and pains, and acquainted with grief and sickness; and like One from Whom men hide their faces He was despised, and we did not appreciate His worth or have any esteem for Him. Isa 53:3

I just want to add that having good looks and attractive status appeal is can also be like a curse not because of what people think they can not get from you but because of their expectations and assumptions! ...like being a bleeding fish in a shark tank! ...

I am glad I am uglier, older and unavailable now! ;D

Peace be to you

Arcturus :)

It was good to read this thread again.  I love it that the newbies go back to see the testimonies.

Rodger, maybe you can catch us up from when you wrote this?  I know you built a house!! :)

Wow, Rodger, thank you for giving us a glimpse into your life!  I must take the time someday to go back further and read more testimonies since I missed yours and there are likely more treasures like this one to be blessed by.

Did you ever manage to get permission from your wife to share your poem?  I would love to read it.

Arcturus, this is so true as well!!  I have been told all my life that I was beautiful...but inside I never felt like it...it didn't mean anything to me.  I know it sounds corny, but really and truly, it is what's inside that is being fashioned by Christ that is important.  Beauty, ugliness, and everything in between matters not, but God does teach us something through it.  My beauty got me into a lot of trouble, and left me with a lot of emptiness, not really ever knowing what "the boys" really saw in me....I would put on weight and wear frumpy clothes just to get away from it....There are a lot of beautiful people out there that are absolutely miserable!  And the more I seek out Christ, the more I realize how little value the flesh and all its appearances hold.  It is a struggle, because in this world appearances are everything. 

Rodger, you and I are being taught the same lessons, just from a different angle.

Peace and love to you,
Diana

Hey Rodger,

Thanks for sharing that remarkable story.  With that personal history you could have easily turned into an impatient and bitter old man.  Thank God for all His grace.

be blessed

Hi Rodger,

I think you got to see the worst from a lot of people, it sounded like it was a really hard life.  I marvel at what some have to endure, but it's good to hear your life is better, and you are enjoying your family now.
Stay strong in Him  :)

mercy, peace and love
Kat

hi rodger and john,
i just wanted to respond to both of you because each of you have been in the oil field industry.  per my post written a little while back called "my story" my husband currently works in the oilfield industry (as a mud engineer).  he actually worked in the same position for a different company in the late 80's also, but got out of it when it all kind of crashed during that period.  he became a school teacher for 10 yrs, then went back into the oilfield work about 4 yrs ago.  in the late 80's he was working internationally in the north sea.  when he went back into the oil industry 4 yrs ago he started out working domestic, mainly in texas, but he said his goal was to go back to working over seas. he has been back working internationally for a little over 2 yrs.  at the end of this past december i found out that he had met a woman while working in mauritania, africa, and that he and she started having an online, webcam internet affair since last november.  i actually walked in our computer room early one morning in december and caught him online with her.  the reason i am writing to you both is because i want to tell you how blessed i am to know that not all oilfield workers are sleazy, abusive sex fiends who have no reverence for God.  my husband is an agnostic, which has nothing to do with his being in the oil industry.  however, after finding out about his affair, and after having had to deal with his chronic online pornsite visits and ongoing sexually implicit emails from other oil field buddies, i had a discussion with him in which he told me that all the oilfield people he worked with did the same things.  i said surely there were some who did not engage in all the temptations to lust, and he assured me that they all did, whether they admitted it or not.  so, even though i do not know either of you personally, and do not know what temptations you may or may not have had to deal with in your years in the oil field, i am grateful to know that there are some in the oil industry who know and love God. 

anyway, just wanted to share this with both of you. 

your sister in Him.
