Connie Wilson Haile–a life–a testimony

Her words rang in my heart this morning…

“I’m going home….(breathe)….I’m going home…. (breathe), I can’t wait.”

After the talks we had had over the past few months–phone–texts–and in her living room–I knew what she meant.

Peace bathed her countenance, although you could tell the last few days had dealt a blow–she was focused. Mind fixed and guarded.

She taught hundreds to do the same.  Fix your mind.

When fighting the enemy the way Connie Wilson Haile had, for the past many years–she had learned a few of his (the enemy’s) maneuvers.  She watched close her own life.  She gave The Holy Spirit full authority to guard, keep and protect all that she gave to Jesus….and when she gave her life to Him…she gave Him all.

Many people will bear a heartache over this special friends’ passing, but once we wipe our eyes, we should look to the heavens, and know that God is getting us ready for Christ’s return.  It’s soon.  Connie would say-

-“fix your mind on what God wants YOU to do.  She would remind you that when you SUBMIT to God…and resist the devil…he will flee.
He has to.
Connie would remind us to trust in the LORD with all our hearts–don’t lean on what we think–see or understand–not to be moved by what we see in the natural… that we should–…in all our ways— acknowledge HIM…and HE will direct our paths.  She would remind us that God does not give us the spirit of fear–that comes from the enemy–HE, God, gives us power over the enemy–through the very Word inspired.
She would remind us that God is our refuge–and strength–a VERY PRESENT help in times of trouble.” 

Family, friends of Connie, GOD IS YOUR REFUGE.  Run to Him.

My sister, Wanda, had a favorite verse– Psalm 27:14  “Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart:  wait, I say, on the LORD.”

Those words reminds me of Connie’s walk with God.  She never stopped believing for her miracle.  She got it today.  This afternoon she sparkled and shown all the way to glory.

That might not have been what the natural eye saw, but if you paused in the room and looked for the spiritual, you would see glitter on the faces surrounding the bed. While it may have seemed to be tears…it was really glitter–paving the way for her to move on the her heavenly home.  The one she was telling me about this morning.  The one she and I had talked of before…

Fix your mind.  Fix it hard and fast on Jesus Christ.  His return is soon–and His Bride will be a prepared and ready Bride.  Connie would remind you of this–and to stay steady.

Many times I heard her say, “I will live and not die–and I will declare the glories of God”.

She did live.  To the fullest!  And she declared His glories all the way Home.  Her death here was just a change of address.  Her body stayed–but her spirit soared.

Our prayers are with the family of Connie Wilson Haile.  She won.  God is glorified.

    There are no words. Not many walk in the light of Christ the way Connie did. I'm jealous you two were able to spend so much time together. What a blessing.

    Thank you for sharing this post, Angie. It means so much to know she was counting the minutes until she could be with Jesus.

    The conference was an annointed and appointed time. We were brought together for a purpose, His purpose. And, even now years later the fruit of that time continues.

    Connie touched me in a way very few have. She is healed and whole in Him tonight. What a glorious day.

    Angie, as you and I have exchanged words over Connie yesterday and today as I prayed with all of you, so I will repeat, “to live is Christ, to die is gain” therefore it's a win-win for Connie….now she is whole and with our King. While I rejoice for her, I pray for her family during this difficult time.

    The legacy Connie has left is said very well in your beautiful tribute of a life well lived, a faith well fought and a love that remains in the hearts of many aiming them toward JESUS!

    Blessings…

    So very sorry for the loss of this precious one. I know how close you two were. Praying for her family, and for you. I love you.

    She will be missed dearly but her fighting spirit of faith will live on and I pray others will pick up where she left off. Death has no sting for her and God is glorified!
