575 days ago...continuation of testimony....by Brian Broadwater on Sunday, October 10, 2010 at 6:20pm

As I wrote in the last testimony, I rededicated my life back to the LORD.  Many GREAT things have happened in my life since that wonderful day.  As of today 10-10-2010, I am 575 days clean from opiates, I was addicited to prescription meds, I am 8 months into my successful Kidney Transplant, more on that in a minute. I have been loving life, enjoying being alive in JESUS, and just having fun, and trying to show people what JESUS can do in your life.

On January 20, 2009, I got  call from the transplant center at the Universty of Maryland Medical Center, telling me after almost 7 yrs, they have a kidney that is a match for me. We get to the hospital, and I am preped for surgery, on the table knocked out, the transplant surgeon is ready to start...all of the sudden they found what they thought was a small abcess in my gum. Well of coarse they stopped the surgery, sent me home to see an oral surgeon. He found it was not an abcess, thank GOD, so I was back at the top of the transplant list. Good ole Frostburg then got smothered in snow with a BIG TIME blizzard in February. That was on the 6th, and then on Saturday night the 13th they called again. Back to the hospital, got there at about 3:30am...was in surgery by 7am....awake by noon feeling pretty good. Yes I was on pain meds for 2 days, and yes they know about my addicition. Anyways, I was released from the hospital 4 days later on Thrusday. I haven't any problem, I feel great. I was not ment to have that 1st kidney, GOD picked and touched this kidney just for me...HALLELUJAH

I just received word that I have been accepted into Liberty Univesrtys on-line college program. Going for my assoicated degree in Religious studies, that way I can either go into being a chaplain or get my bachalors degree and maybe being a ordaind pastor...not to worry GOD will give me the answeres. HE has opend my eyes...He has opened so many door for me...

All the Glory and Paise goes to our LORD JESUS, withou HIM I am nothing...yes I am human and screw up...but HE still loves us and died for me.....I love u all...GOD Bless all.....brian



Seeing signs

I have been told by people that I think way to much about the end times, and JESUS'S return. I look around, and all I see are signs of the times coming. I see in my own family the attacks that we are under by the enemy. Cancer,eveil spirits, what ever the enemy can throw at this family he has. Praise GOD there are many prayers warriors in our family.
I am going to give some examples, and i would like your honest opinions, if you think it is attack by the enemy or just everyday life,.In May my cousin and her huswband were ordained, and they are planting a church in Ithaca MI. Two weeks after they were ordained, my cousin Deanna, who was ordained, her brother suffered a stroke, while on the way to church. Her husband Steve, who also is a pastor, was laidoff hisw job. Praise GOD, the Great Physicain, touched my cousin Dave and he is doing good, and GOD provided Steve and Deanna plenty of work and income till he called back to work. Hallelujah, thier church is staerting to grow slowly but surely!!
While I was in MI for thier ordaining, Deanna ask me if I felt led they would love for me to come and help them start thier minisitry. After much prayer, and counsel in JUne I moved to MI to help them plant their church. I fell in love with MI, and the people their. I had to come home for a transplant checkup, and my dad found out he needed bladder surgery. I stayed to help him with his recovery, well things haven't gone well, and we found out today,  that in 3 weeks, he will have to have a treatment a week for 6 weeks. His dr. says he shouldn't be by himself, dad is 83. I have 3 brothers but they all have jobs and live away from here.S ince I cant work yet, I will take care of him,he has taken care of me for the last 5 years. The point that I am making is satan see's the work we are trying  to do for the LORD, and he attacks, to  try to stop us or discourage us.
I know that we are not the only family faciing this everyday, I know April, Bold, have had their attacks this year alone. This is just some personal examples of close family, now look at the news with what is happening world wide, and tell me they are not signs of the last days.....GOD Bless...brian

Some times we feel all alone?

It's amazing how things can be going to wonderful, life is good, things look wonderful, then in a couple of days seems like we are all alone, we feel we don't even have JESUS beside us.  I know the Bible tells us, and JESUS said HE would never leave us, or forsake us. I belive this to be true, it is us, that let's the world and the enemy sneak in. He seeks to steal kill and destroy, and satan is the great liar.
Right now I have felt so alone, that I don't even have JESUS with me. I know that HE is standing right beside me, HE has my hand. For some reason, the enemy can get into our head and his lies tells us we are all alone, and if JESUS loved us so much why would we be alone?..All I can say is "satan you were defeated 2000 yrs ago when my LORD and SAVIOR went to the cross, and shed HIS blood for me.
  When we have a season like this, I got some very good advice from a very dear friend, she told me to praise my way out of this feeling. Wow what great advice, for the last 3 days I have felt like garbage, and she told me that. Last night I started to listen to praise music,(which I usually do everyday)..and I have noticed when I get feeling like this I am not listening to praise music like I usually do. Anyways started listening to praise music and started praying, more like crying out to JESUS...got a pretty good nights sleep, for me anyways..lol..Got up this morning started listening to praise music, praying and the feeling is lifting, I know that I am a powerful child of the most high GOD, I am a king a priest in the most royal family...PRAISE GOD....HALLELUJAH...I LOVE YOU JESUS...I love all of you here at MH..I pray maybe this will give someone some encouragement..Knowing that JESUS will never leave us or forsake us...God Bless all...brian
