Christian Girls Who Rock 

I am Mignon Thomas, and I am a Christian girl that rocks!

 

I was a broken and battered woman. I was in an abusive relationship that almost cost me my life. Mentally, physically, and verbally was made to feel like less of a woman and that every circumstance or situation that life brought about was my fault. Was always put down and belittled by a man who I though I was in love with and he with me. He made me to not feel like a woman because I wasn’t able to have children when at the age of 23 I found out I had a tumor that had grown over my uterus and right ovary and fallopian tube which resulted in a partial hysterectomy and colostomy. Was kicked down when I was already at my lowest. Took the abuse because I felt that I deserved it. I felt that I was wrong. It seemed like no matter what I did or how hard I tried, when I think I’m taking 50 steps forward I get knocked back 1,050 steps. It wasn’t until I went to jail behind my stepson that I realized I was fighting a battle in that was beyond my control and fighting in the wrong way. I fought until I couldn’t fight anymore standing up. It brought me to knees where I realized I was fighting eye level but had no choice at this point to raise my head up and look higher. While in jail it wasn’t until then that God broke me down and opened my eyes. When I raised my head I knew then that God had heard my numerous prayers and countless cries. It was then that I realized that everything that was happening was God’s will for me. He had to get me away from that situation so that I could hear Him and see what was really going on in my life. At that time I came to understand that it wasn’t me with the issues or the one that was incapable of loving. It was then that I realized God had something greater in store for me but He couldn’t bless me with it until I was in a quiet place. A place where I could only hear Him. While in jail I couldn’t do anything but pray and cry. I didn’t want to believe that my marriage was over although I knew it was right. I didn’t want to believe that almost 10 years of working to build a family was over. I came to understand that as I prayed, God was rescuing me so that He could deliver me. It didn’t come in the way I wanted or would have hoped but it came in His perfect timing. In that quietness, in that place of brokenness, I asked God to lead me. I told God wherever He led me I would follow, I would not question Him or His will no matter how much it hurt even if it meant walking away from everything I thought I loved. Needless to say, God answered my prayers. 3 months later I found myself back home in Texas with family and the support I was missing and needing. I let go of those and that thing that was holding me back from living and walking in my purpose. We weren’t on the same level spiritually and when you can’t connect spiritually or are not connected spiritually that relationship will not last. It was bound to fall because it was not ordained by God. After arriving in Texas, I was so lost and even more broken and confused. I didn’t know what to do. I prayed and asked God that He would help me. Send me someone who would help me get through this down time in my life. A few weeks later I attended a Friday night service with my mom in need of some relief from the heartache and looking to hear a comforting word. At that service, the speaker of the night came in and you could tell that God was with her. When she came up God moved through her touching everyone in the room. God moved in a way that I had never seen before. Everyone she touched couldn’t help but feel and know it was God. She anointed and prayed for me and after that, my life was forever changed. Come to find out God connected me with a true vessel of His to help teach, lead and mold me into the woman He has for me to be. After being connected with His Prophetess, I was able to get back on my feet and start my life anew with direction and guidance after losing everything; but not guidance just from her but from God. I was given a second chance in life to start over, get me together and live the way that God intended for me to live.

A little bit about me and why I’m here…

 

I’m here to tell you that love is an action word. It is not a word only to be heard, but to be shown even more. The way I got to Houston, TX, I was lured. A man told me that I was beautiful, that I was smart, funny and one of a kind; that I was creative and strong-willed. That he loved who I was and wanted me for who I was. It was already in my heart to move before I met him on the internet, so I thought he was a God-send! But once I touched down in Houston I realize that all that glitters is not gold. The relationship became something I did not recognize. The awesome man I fell in love with was not at all what he claimed to be. Behaviors changed and more and more lies began to emerge. Caring and concerned became controlling. Self-expression became anger and verbal abuse. Giving myself to the one I loved became being sexually used and treated like I was just a toy, and I was to enjoy it- even if I did not. In all of this I had nowhere to go and no one to talk to about these things, so I felt trapped. What could I do? I remember the day God broke those chains off of me and set me free from that situation. Just before I made a very serious decision that I know God came in and blocked me from making. That morning we picked up the keys to our new apartment, I had planned to move in with him knowing all of these things he had done to me and I don’t know how many others. It was true that he wanted me for who I was, but not because he loved me, he wanted to take from me what he could get out of me: my love and compassion, my smarts, my confidence, my body and my free will. He wanted to use me totally for his pleasure. He did not care about me or anything that pertained to my well-being. God opened my eyes and allowed me to see this just before we loaded our trucks to move our things from his mother’s apartment to our new one. I snatched the key and I told him to go- and he did. God removed him from my life and blocked the plans to do me harm and turned it around for my good! About 3 months later a friend introduced me to a true Woman of God. I had never met her before but I felt and excitement in my belly just by the mention of her name. I knew that God had preordained our meeting long before I met her and when I finally did, my soul was so happy! Our first conversation had me on my knees in tears of joy. God will use what the enemy meant for your destruction to elevate you to levels you never knew where possible. I am here to share, learn and grow with you. Always know, that you are never alone on this journey, and God has always had a plan for your life even when you felt you couldn’t go on. The same God that did it for me will do it for you.
