Faith, Health & God’s Wisdom from a Classic Home Economist
I am Grace Ann Christian, and I am also known as Granny Annie!
I’m not this lady.
I wanted to be that lady. She looks quite a lot like my mother, the 50s housewife. I’m a child of the 60s living in Motown land, singing along with the Monkees, outside of Detroit, far away from the Bible belt.
I have always loved to sew, cook, bake, do crafty things, garden, paint furniture…tons & tons of stuff around the house. I love it!
So, I went to Eastern Michigan University and graduated with a degree in Home Economics Education.
But that was MY will, not GOD’S will for my life. I didn’t know God at that point in my life, but He was pursuing me! Looking back, I can see His hand although I never heard the gospel until I was 21 years old. I didn’t know anything about Jesus until I had graduated from school and married. And then the real challenges of life began.
Through a series of unusual events, I found myself in the midst of a perfect storm of situations, but God was in the whirlwind. It was HIS doing.
Thank God, HE was in control, even when I wasn’t.
I never thought I could change my life…
I had a lot of things in my life that God needed to change. I couldn’t do it and I didn’t know where to begin! My problems were waaaaay bigger than me. I knew I needed to change and much in my situation needed to change… but for me, that was impossible. It was so out of my realm of possibility, I didn’t even think about it, I just accepted it…BUT…
With God All Things Are Possible!
God did it. He changed my life.
How did it happen? It was when I began to read the Bible and pray. I wanted to know Jesus and I committed myself to yield to whatever He told me to do. I wanted to learn from Him! Living by and obeying God’s Word has completely transformed me. God has changed me from the inside out by bringing me through the refining fires of life and in all of it He has proven His complete faithfulness to me!
And so now, almost 20 years have passed since God moved massively and sovereignly in my life. He has continued to teach me, change me, lead me, guide and use me to encourage others. One thing I have learned is – my life is not all about me!
God is no respecter of persons. What He has done for me, He will do for you. His Word is Truth and applies to everyone, everywhere, in every situation.
What Does the Future Hold?
To the UNBELIEVERS: Turn to Jesus! You have no guarantee that you will live until tomorrow. Repent for your sin – your wrongdoing – and trust God to take care of you.
I’ve spent the last 15 years as a legal secretary, so I look at a lot of scripture through the eyes of mankind standing before the Judge of all the Earth on that appointed Judgement Day.
Will you be found guilty as charged or has Someone paid the price for your offenses and bailed you out?
To the BELIEVERS: The world has infiltrated the Body of Christ in these last days and we are in the midst of the apostasy; the great falling away. Jesus warned us not to be deceived by what is happening upon the earth. He wondered if He would find faith on the earth when He returned. So do you have faith?
PEOPLE OF GOD! Love Him with all your heart, mind and soul! and TRUST, TRUST, TRUST! You might not agree with everything I say, but I hope you will think about it and pray about it! Read your Bible, obey it and LIVE!
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh Him.
