Hilcrest Outreach / Glory to GOD

Hillcrest OutreachRos Tia & ShanePaulaMelissa & RachaelMadeline and McKenzieNoahMe & AbbyThe Montgomery Family



I wanted to share some pictures of our Summer Small Group Outreach we had this past Saturday at Hilcrest. We were able to minister to 12 wonderful girls in the RTCC program. Some of whom received Christ into their hearts. I am in awe of how God can make a hard heart become open to receive Him with simple gestures of love that melts away all heartache and molds it into a heart of love. I saw girls who seemed so hard-hearted weep so hard and humble themselves to God. God moved so beautifully. Thank you Lord for allow us all to minister for Your glory. If we do not love we are nothing. 1 Cor. 13

To my small group: What an awesome group you are. I pray God continues to grow us into beautiful relationships with one another. God bless you and keep you =)

CHILDREN CAN REMIND YOU OF SO MANY THINGS YOU FORGOT! I KNOW THAT IS WHY JESUS SAID COME LIKE A CHILD! WHAT PURE WORSHIP HE OFFERED UP TO THE LORD THAT DAY!

Sign Language - May 3, 2008 - Song by Rita Springer, Gonna Be Worth It

This is a short video my little precious friend videotaped off my camera at a women's conference I signed at in May 2008, in Rainbow City, Alabama.

It is for the most part recorded sideways and isn't the song in its entirety signed. So hopefully it won't be too much strain on your neck to watch =)

I thank God for enabling me to do this for Him. I consider it my sacrifice and worship to Him. It is such an honor and I am so thankful to be able to minister to affect lives for the glory of God.

His kingdom come, His will be done and..... never mine.

Be A Sign For Jesus! ><> It is gonna be worth it all!

God bless you!

I HAVE STRENGTH FOR ALL THINGS IN CHRIST WHO EMPOWERS ME [I AM READY FOR ANYTHING AND EQUAL TO ANYTHING THROUGH HIM WHO INFUSES INNER STRENGTH INTO ME; I AM SELF-SUFFICIENT IN CHRIST'S SUFFICIENCY]
- Philippians 4:13 (AMP)

My Testimony

I became pregnant at age 16 and married in 10th grade. I gave premature birth to Kyle in July of 1988 and he changed my life completely. Never had I known a love like I felt the first time I saw him face to face. At that point my vision to make a way for us was birthed. Throughout a rocky marriage of verbal and physical abuse, my marriage ended when I was 21. Even though I had almost raised Kyle by myself, I was at this point truly alone and raising a confused and hurting 5 year old, not to mention the mess I was. I then welcomed the world as my love, comfort and so to speak divorced the God I barely knew to pursue a relationship with the world.

I still continued on "my way". I went through another abusive relationship and several relationships throughout the years and continued in the world adapting to every thing and enjoying everything it had to offer. I came to the end of my road in 2002. I was very depressed and had started on medication and came to a fork in my journey with two ways to choose. It was at that time God starting calling to me and drawing me. I for once, listened and drew close to Him. He was always there the whole time once I looked back. He always protected me, provided for us and always loved me.

At a prayermeeting in May of 2002, I said the prayer that changed my whole life. I, for the firstime felt the Holy Spirit and have been captivated by Him ever since. I then began a new way but this time it was Jesus' way. I can't say the way was easy. He never said it would be. He simply said I would never be alone.

I meet my husband finally after 2 1/2 years of praying. I meet him at his church while I was visiting and learning more sign language. He is deaf, for now. I am amazed how God prepared me so uniquely for him. We married 3 months later and will be married in November 4 years. We had our son Joshua in September of 2005 after a very hard and difficult pregnancy.

So here I am, Julie, God's maidservant. I am in awe of how He loved me faithfully and still continues to love me. I am so imperfect to serve Him, but somehow He still lets me. He made a way for me to come before Him and become a new creature. He is the way, the truth and defiantely the life. He is the life in me that makes this vessel of any value. We serve a very loving Lord.

I pray this ministered for God's glory and bear with me as I began in the world of blogging.

To God be all the glory and to God may we always go HIS WAY!
