Hello and welcome! I’m Tammy Provins and I started this blog to share my story and to encourage others in their faith walk with the Lord. My journey started 20 years ago this coming year. God has led me to Remember what He has done in my life and to share my testimony with others.
I’m living proof of a
a changed heart
and a changed future.
My story is in several different parts: Growing up years – Our beginning – Our fall – Our redemption – Our lives restored.
It’s not easy to share your most vulnerable parts of your life with the world. But, when God calls you to something, He will be glorified and lifted up. That’s what this is all about – bringing Him honor and glory! It’s all because of Him that I’m changed…a new creation in Christ.
My Life Verse was given to me a few months after my Grace experience with the Lord and I’d like to share it with you. I’m not sure if everyone gets a verse, but the Lord was specific with me, I want you to live out this verse and watch me honor my promise. I highlighted the verse in my bible, I wrote it down and began memorizing the verse, I brought a plaque and hung it in my house, and then I began to walk in this verse…
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
I love how the message bible translation reads
“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil!” – Proverbs 3:5-7 MSG
Trust me, I needed to be kept on track! I added verse seven of the message translation because I was used to running to evil and not to God. This was a new thing for me, trusting! Trusting in someone other than myself.
Run to God! Run from evil!
When God gives you a verse, it’s not always easy to walk in it.
I failed many times.
But, through the failings I learned to trust God and His ways; to acknowledge Him in everything and to stop leaning on my understanding. For thirty years I trusted in my own understanding, walked a path of destruction and ran to evil more times than I can remember. But with each step, each turning, each choice to honor the one who died for me, it was easier to Trust in His ways, and run to Him more often than evil.
