God Spoke to Me

Years ago when I gave my life to Jesus, His Holy Spirit came to indwell me, and then started changing me.

I still remember that initial peace, joy and love. Yet there were changes as well. When God wanted me to change something in my life, He did not speak audibly, but still I distinctly heard Him.

I had been a follower of Jesus for just a few weeks when long-time friends came to visit. I began telling them about my new life—how Christ had changed me. While I was telling them about Jesus, I was mixing vodka drinks!

I distinctly remember handing drinks to our friends while experiencing God speaking to me and saying “Others may, but you may not.”

It was clearly from God.  It was not audible, yet I knew He was speaking to my inner being. I knew it, I felt it, and I never did it again.

  • For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.        Titus 2:11-13

About Kathleen

God delights in working through His people as they submit to Him. Jesus said to go into all the world and preach the good news to everyone (Mark 16:15). No matter where we live on this planet, people are separated from God because of sin. We ALL need a Savior, and there’s only ONE. It brings me great joy to share Christ with the lost and lonely. Over the years I’ve learned a great deal while facilitating Bible studies. I’ve found myself on college and university campuses, the beach, the streets, the hospital, the jail and the juvenile facility for incarcerated teens sharing God’s message of love. I also serve as an online missionary with Global Media Outreach. I’ve seen countless lives transformed when people turn away from sin and turn to Jesus. The changes God makes are real and lasting. These are some of my experiences. NOTE: My stories have been altered, removing any and all identifying factors.
