The Miracle on Tennessee Street as Told by Dr. Troye Thigpen


“ Return home and tell how much God has done for you.”

~ Luke 8:39

Presenting with excitement, I introduce to you Testimony Tuesdays!!! A testimony by definition is: a formal written or spoken statement, a public recounting of a religious conversion or experience. The Bible commands us in numerous places to bring praise, glory, and honor to our God by proclaiming, declaring, and telling about His marvelous works to others. That is the purpose and heart behind this installment for my Tuesday posts. Each Tuesday (more or less), a testimony will be shared here involving the recounting of salvation, redemption, overcoming, and/or healing just to name a few; A story that brings glory to our God and in which we might be encouraged, spurred on, and challenged with at the same time.The stories that will be shared will either be of my own personal experiences, excerpts from books, testimonies I find via YouTube or other media sources, as well as YOURS! I would love to know and give you the opportunity to share here with us a testimony of your own, of whatever fashion that involves the Lord doing a transforming work in your life. Just email me your testimony and I will see what I can do about posting it on a future Tuesday! You may choose to have your name be known or anonymous. I look forward to hearing from you!


Today I’m going to share with you the testimony of the mother of one of my friends Chloe. I first met Chloe when I was assigned to be her assistant counselor at the Ballet Magnificat Summer Dance Intensive in 2016. Chloe is awesome, but I surmise that her awesomeness is in part due to the fact that she has such awesome parents! Chloe has a wonderful story herself that can be checked out at her website Beautifulandchoosen.com, but today we are going to focus specifically on the story of her mother, Dr. Troye Thigpen.  Y’all, God is amazing!  He is an omniscient, omnipresent, never-sleeping, all-powerful God who is loving and intentional with his creations. It is mind-boggling for me to think of all the work that He has done and continues doing in the hearts and lives of so many people. There are people all around us possessing amazing testimonies! Everybody's got a story. Listen to this child of the Most High God, Wife, Mother, Educator, Minister, Chaplain, Intercessor, Author, Blogger, Student, and Founder of The Prayer Tent International, Dr. Troye Thigpen's God story below and be blessed and encouraged!

I am always looking to give my readers the opportunity to share their testimonies with the world here at The Occupied Optimist in written or media form. Please contact me at lillian@theoccupiedoptimist.com if you are interested in doing so.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Wonderful Tuesday! 

   Have You Read...
