Pastor Sandy Mays
At age 34, Sandy Mays found herself in a troubled marriage when her husband of 8 years developed a crack cocaine addiction and had numerous extramarital affairs. Having a small daughter, Sandy was now faced with the responsibility of being the sole provider for her child; compounded by being the sole caretaker for her mentally and physically challenged mother. Sandy's husband had been the primary financial provider for the household, leaving her without enough income to pay her monthly household bills, on her income alone. She had received Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior several years prior, attended church regularly and even sang in the praise and worship at her local church, but had no idea her life would be overwhelmed with such turmoil and misery. The emotional strain, insecurity and uncertainty resulting from her marriage, finances and mother's illness plagued her daily. She was unsure how she would make it out of her life's turmoil and at times felt completely helpless. She had heard testimonies from others of how God has turned their lives and marriages around, but wondered if God would do the same for her. She decided to believe that He would.
She began searching the Scriptures and found dozens of verses that touched her heart and ministered to her situation. She wrote out 3x5 cards with these Scriptures, in first person, present tense, and began praying them three times a day. Each day her faith grew stronger, as she began to learn how to cast her cares upon God and see her life the way God had promised in His Word. She made a conscious decision to forgive her husband and everyone else that had hurt and offended her. She sought the Lord each and every day for strength, peace and direction. Through these difficult times, God showed up daily with favor, grace and provision, miracle after miracle took place in her finances, family and life, and she learned to fully trust and rely on God for everything. Building her faith and trusting God, allowed her to walk through the storm and brought her to where she is today.
