IF YOU ONLY KNEW—God, the Restorer

April 27, 2022

The verdict was about to be read and a quiet hush fell over the courtroom, the atmosphere was so still you could hear a pin drop. The jury foreman stood up and began to deliver the verdict after two long weeks of an intense, sham of a trial. I have heard verdicts read before, served on several juries and have been called as a witness in trials, but the defendant who had just risen from his chair on instruction from the presiding judge, was no ordinary defendant, he was my husband of 16 years. I could only sit there in the courtroom, pray to God and observe injustice spilling forth from the mouth of the foreman…….”We the jury find the defendant, guilty.” “Sentencing would be in two weeks henceforth,” the judge said as he struck his gavel.

I sat there still and quiet trying to absorb what we all just heard. I watched the bailiff handcuff my husband, we barely got to say good bye to one another before they took him into custody. My mind and body went numb, mechanically I walked out of the courtroom, took the elevator down to the parking structure, got into my car and wept uncontrollably.

The months leading up to the trial were a living nightmare. We were interrogated endlessly, our phone conversations were tapped and mounting a defense was rapidly depleting our resources. Long story short, my husband and his co-worker were unjustly accused of a crime they didn’t commit. As a result, the co-worker was so distraught over the false accusations that he tragically took his own life by stepping in front of a fast-moving train, we decided to pray and fight.

After sentencing, I drove home, went straight to my computer, look up many Bible verses on the Lord bringing justice into our lives, printed out several copies and put them up all over the house and told God we were going to stand on His Word until He restored our family.

The first Bible verse on the list was:

Isaiah 61:8-9, “For I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing. In My faithfulness I will reward My people and make an everlasting covenant with them. Their descendants will be known among the nations and their offspring among the peoples. All who see them will acknowledge that they are a people the Lord has blessed.”

Shortly thereafter, everything went from bad to worse, the nightmare turned into a living hell. Word got out and relatives and friends were distancing themselves from us, attorneys threatening to sue for lack of payment, my business suffered, liens were put against our home and so on and so on. I kept asking God how could this have happened and why was He allowing it to go on?!

Well, five and half years later and over a million dollars in debt, our loving and faithful God restored our family. We were stripped of our worldly possessions and friends, but we had Jesus and each other and we moved forward in faith, trusting in the grace of God the Restorer.

From Jesus With Love

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with love...to you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
