Testimony of Gail Ann Alexander

Well first of all let me introduce myself to those who do not know me? My name is Gail Ann Alexander. I am a proud mother of 3 beautiful daughter’s starting with Andrea age 37. Jennifer age 32 & our baby girl Lauren age 27 along with 2 beautiful granddaughter’s both who are turning 6 this year. The eldest Elaina turns 6 on February 13th & the other one Madison turns 6 on April 5th…just a little bit of introduction of myself I would like to share, about me so others can get to not only know me as your sister but as your friend as well…
Where do I begin to tell you of my journey to find true and everlasting love??? The Love of Christ Jesus??? I know something that others may have never felt in their life…The Amazing Power of Gods work and hands at work in my life and my families life…I was always a very wise, curious, independent, honest and always teachable child…I listened very well throughout school and learned a lot…
I guess I will start at the age of 12 where I met this wonderful couple who were my neighbors across the street from where I lived. The Boyce’s were Christians and attended a Presbyterian Church in Davie, Florida. I grew up as a Catholic, as my mom was a devout Roman Catholic in our home..Where there were restrictions of Faith you needed to follow…I now call it doctrine…
However, I do recall one Sunday morning telling my mom at the tender age of 12.. “Mom, I no longer want to go to the Catholic Church.” Reason is I wanted to go to another church with my neighbors The Boyce’s across the street and try out their church..Let me tell you I enjoyed it so much I truly dropped completely out of the Catholic Faith all together… Which of course caused great disappointment with my mom…I continued going to church with The Boyce’s…not long much after they decided to move out of their home and move back to the state which they came from Ohio…I was devastated beyond belief…you can say I was lost at that time…
Nowhere to turn to so I took off in another direction with no one supervision or so it seemed no one cared at all together as teenagers sometimes do..I back slid for many years to come..Doing all kinds of things I’m not proud of; lets just say and leave it at that!!! When I turned 16 I left home to venture out on my own. Very mature and ready to take on the world by Gail Storm… LOL!!! Wow!!! What can I say??? I took on many jobs to pay my bills to do whatever it took to without Ever turning home to my mom & dad for a dime!!! No not me, I would suffer alone before I would call for help…and no not those kind of jobs either…I worked in a photo lab where I met my husband of now going on this next month in March of 40 years of being together and 38 years of marriage…Still together…
We worked nights and hung out all the time, yes it was true love at first sight for the both of us so I thought??? Fast forward to 1988 the year we shared our 3rd. child together as a couple…Life!!! That was exactly what it was!!! Married young, had children young and add life’s unexpected moments into the mix and then you have a testimony to share with others such as this…Yes, My testimony is that I lived through many, many struggles and hardships, from our finances suffering, from losing our home to Hurricane Andrew in 1992, to suffering grave health and illness that almost killed me…I sunk into a very deep depression at the time we bought our home which we reside in at the moment and very suicidal might I add…I met a friend named Candy through another friend who I knew through Mary Kay and she invited me to a Bible Study at Candy’s home which Candy helped me turn back to
The Lord…Yes, I rededicated my life back to The Lord in 1995 & that’s when my husbands infidelity came about that almost cost us our marriage in the late 90’s until 2001 when he finally confessed the truth after I confronted him as The Lord had revealed all to me that he had another woman for over 5 years. It was true!!! All of it!!! God had helped me by telling me how to make him confess to his adultery…God had helped me through such a trying time that I call The Fire…My Trust, believe me has been tested to the limits as it still is today…
Fasting forward to today with the many, many struggles, surgeries for various illnesses, many hospitalization’s which included blood transfusion’s and the many times the enemy has tried to take me out with cancer!!! BUT, THE LORD SAID, NO!!! I can tell you of a testimony that happened back in 1996 or so it was I believe? I was going in for an MRI of the cervical area & they discovered I had 2 nodules on my thyroid which turned out to be cancer..I at the time was going to a church called Cornerstone of Davie…well needless to say, I was healed completely of the nodules that they said were cancer they disappeared on the thyroid scan that they had previously seen on an
MRI scan and various tests confirming the c word..SO THIS IS WHY I PRAISE THE LORD EVERY MOMENT OF EVERYDAY HE HAS GIVEN ME!!! HE IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE, BUT ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH!!!
JESUS IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE MY LORD, MY SAVIOR, MY ROCK, MY ALL…
So my Brother’s & Sister’s in Christ I give You here my TESTIMONY ON THIS DAY!!! Lengthy as it may be I tried to sum it up the best I possibly could…Just know many Miracles HE HAS GIVEN ME THROUGHOUT MY LIFE OF 56 YEARS…May you all know the Love, the Mercy and the Grace of The Almighty Lord And Jesus The Christ…Amen…
MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL MY BELOVED BROTHERS & SISTERS…
