My Testimony.

This is a true story about a young girl and a Merciful God.

My Savior.. In Christ alone.

I was 21 when I was told I was loved by God. I was preached to by a guy from Acapulco who needed help with his phone. I work for Verizon Wireless and been there for 10 years.  He would come in and wait for me to be helped, he did not want anyone else to help him but me. He said he knew someone that loved me.. I was like ..Sure.........! One day as I was leaving work I saw him outside.... he brought a Bible to give to me.... I rejected it from him... as I got in my car driving away.. I remember the words.. I said.."God is this you..? are you calling me ?" for the first time in my life I felt I was really talking to God and that He was so very close listing to my to me as I was crying. At this time I was attending and serving in a Catholic church with my parents. I knew in my heart that God was calling me.. to know HIM truly Know HIM. The name of the guy that shared the Gospel with me was Emmanuel which means.. GOD WITH US.  I remember he told me that .. he also told me that my name Elizabeth meant OATH TO GOD..  God used him to call to me..from that day my heart was open.. got home asked my mom for a Bible and started to read.. THESE were the hardest and more beautiful times of my life. My parents were upset with me they did not want me to attend a Christen church. I then started to share the word with my sister Olga Marquez . She gave her life to Christ and it was such a beautiful moment.. I started to sing at Discovery  Church and later became the worship leader, teacher for kids, Bible study for girls which I still d0... and being part of the elders of my old church. My parents later by the grace of God also started to come and were baptized all my family but my brother.. still praying.. There is so much more than I can say and things that happened on the way.. It's so amazing how God can place His eyes on you.. when you don't have a clue.. when you don't feel you deserve .. when you feel so alone!.. when you did not even know he was always there calling to you some how.. He was truly listening.. its amazing how this is. His Salvation His Grace His love... no words but only my soul calls out from within. Something so powerful that I feel that breaks me down and in that moment.. I wish I can be there FOREVER. I can't explain it but its truly something words cant describe. I have written some songs and my dream and plans is to one day share them with you. Now my whole family.. attends Harvest Valley in Pleasanton. This is where Olga ( my sister) and Ray (brother in law) Marquez attended before us (she also has a blog!! she got me started <3 ) My Sister always says how she is blessed to have me as a sister.. and I blessed to see her fall in love more with God and how she has been inspiring me.. God is SO GOOD SiSter! Blessed to have shared and keep sharing this wonderful gift! My husband Hugo is growing in the faith and pray that the Lord may guide us day after day after day in His word and Grace and teach us to be stronger in Him.. What a beautiful Journey this as been and the hope we wait for to one day be ready to fly... to a place called HOME. To finally be FREE .......<3
