Eternity has become by main focus and purpose in life
My name is Brandy Veasey. Mary’s Song was the place where I experienced complete restoration and freedom from addiction. It was most importantly the place where I completely surrendered my will and plans to God. I had no agenda when I graduated Mary’s Song but to fall more in love with Jesus and follow his steps each day. I was content with myself for the first time and happy with my new life in Christ. My worst day in Christ is better than my best day in the world! He satisfies my soul like no other substance, soul mate, success, or anything else this world looks for to find “true happiness.” Psalms 40:2, “He brought me up out of the pit of destruction, out of the miry clay, and He set my feet upon a rock making my footsteps firm.” Psalms 27:4, “One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to meditate in His temple.”
When I express my current life compared with before my time at Mary’s Song, I tell people it feels like a lifetime ago. I have been reborn, and given a new life in Christ. I’m living out the scripture John 3:3 when it says a man must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God. I have experienced for myself that God is true to His word. He’s a faithful and good God. My life has a whole new meaning because I’ve been born again. Eternity has become my main focus and purpose in life. Before Mary’s Song I lost all hope and purpose but now I’ve found everything I was searching for in Christ.
I’m blessed with an amazing church and spiritual family. God has restored my relationship with my family. I’m a testimony of the Lord’s faithfulness to them. I’ve been married to the most amazing man, Chandler Veasey, for two years now. He grew up at Victory Fellowship and currently is the Worship and Young Adults Director. He loves me with Christ’s love and leads by example. I’m currently serving in the worship and young adults ministry with him and having a blast. It’s so fulfilling to be able to pour out the love, forgiveness, and freedom that I’ve experienced to other people. He truly does make all things new! I work in the office at St. Anthony’s Nursing Home where I’m also able to minister to people. Each day I encounter precious souls that are close to the end of their race on earth. It’s amazing being able to love on them at work and lead them to Christ!
Everyday is a gift from God! He has used Mary’s Song and Victory Fellowship to help shake the dust off from my past and move me forward. Pastor Parris would always say when I was in the program that we attain progress by baby steps. This is how I live my life now! Every day I practice the basic principles of the bible: devotions, prayer, worship, and connecting to the local church. I have been taking baby steps since day one of Mary’s Song. Looking back God has done so much in my life. We go from glory to glory!
