Testimony of Rebekah Wyant
Well, first of all, I thank God for His gracious mercy and
love. Im thankful that God didnt give up on me,
because when I was young my family didnt go to church. I
went to Bible School each year just to get away from the house
and to get to be around other kids. I started going
"out" at a young age; my parents thought I was going
one place and I was going to another.
When I was 13 years old my mom, my brother, and I were in a
very bad car wreck, my grand parents were the first ones to come
up on the accident. I was covered up for dead, but a women showed
up and uncovered me. I dont know what she did but Im
still here. Nobody knows who she was, or saw her after that day.
I know that God must have sent her but I never really gave any
thought to that fact. I still did just what I wanted.
Some years later I meet Tony it was like God sent him. The
morning after my oldest brother introduced me to Tony, my brother
was killed in a car accident. A little later Tony and I started
dating. I never considered God in any of this. A year and a half
later my dad died of a heart attack. When this happened I turned
to drinking and what ever else numbed my senses. But Tony helped
me get through this as he had other things since I met him.
My mom wouldnt let us get married, so we decided to just
live together. We finally got married . Not long after that
Tonys brother Jeff got saved. He asked us to go to church.
For a while I attended just to get him and Tina to stop asking.
By this time Jeff was preaching I went and I saw people
getting saved and how they were accepted and loved. So I decide
to walk the aisle; but it was not of God, just me.
I went to church for 5 years after that. I stayed under
conviction for a long time, because I was one person at church
but I was someone else at home and around my friends who
didnt go to church. I beleive God was tired of the way I
Around this time I got sick. I went to the doctor he said I
had a lot of problems. He told me that if I didn't have surgery I
would die soon. I had the surgery, but afterwards he told me that
there was no medical explanation for me to be alive.
I still continued to live life as nothing had been said or
done. Till one day we were having a revival I was in the nursery
with Gary but I came out. The Holy Spirit was drawing me and
there was no resisting. I went down front and confessed before
God and the world I was living a lie.
When I got in Gods will He took me out of my comfort
zone because He had something for me to do besides hold a bench
Now I work in missions. It is the work that God has called
everyone to do in a way. We are all suppose to tell others about
Jesus and what He has done in our lives.
BLESS GOD for all He has done for us and through us.
