@Eva Peron: wow great testimony!! I use to say the very same thing, but I then realized that it was his provision and covering that he protected me! And you know what, one day I was teaching a bible study for young women and before it began I was like “God what am I going to say to these girls cuz I dont have a great testimony blah blah blah” Then he spoke to me and said but you have wisdom! Im hear to tell you wisdom can take you places. A testimony says where you have come from and wisdom tells where you are going.

My story:  

I was never dragged to church either. I loved going to church and I LOVED God period. It was my growth in college that I realized that it wasnt about what religon you claimed to be, how holy you claimed to be or who shouts the loudest in church , but it is all about a genuine relationship with  God! I began to understand the person of God and how he had a purpose  fashioned and formed for me. I began to understand more about his love. A love that is perfect, a love I dont deserve, a love that flows to the deepest crevaces of my heart and heals all hurts,wounds and scars that I didnt even know were there.

The word of God literally have become a word unto my feet and a light unto my path.  Some may say I am down right crazy, but I am nothing without God. He is my source, my strength, my life and if God be for me, who can be against me.  Of course, test and trials are there, like recently a spiritual attack came where I could barely walk and do anything for myself. Everybody kept saying go to the doctor for months, this and that. I went from doctor to doctor test after test …nothing until I had to realize that the bible said we wrestle not against flesh and blood. People closest to me and myself began to pray without ceasing. I can say that now I am set free, walking and on to doing what God has called me to do.  what the enemy had for bad God clearly turned to good!!!

 I could go on and on but I’ll stop there.!! If you have questions feel free to ask!

Me and God have had an on/off relationship. I was headed in a terrible direction when i got pregnant with my son. My son brought me back to God. I hadnt prayed in years before i got pregnant. through the years, I have strayed by geting out of the habit of going to church but I prayed to him to draw me near and he answered quickly and with such strength i couldn’t help but be humbled. Each time i was brought back to God, I strengthened my bond with HIM and now I feel Him more than ever. I can say i have experienced Him in small miracles hundreds of times. He gives me the srtength I need everyday to do His will:) I was brought up being told that going to church ws a waste of time. And now we go ALL the time. My Fiance re-met me at a fork in the road in his life and he has began to grow in his relationship with Him now. So good to hear your stories ladies. thank you for letting me vaugely share mine. I am glad to hear you all founf Him in a graceful way. I fought Him at times and he has shown is love for me as only as perfect as He can.

my story .. 

My story

 My names Melinda  and been a Christian for about 6 years,  when I was  6 weeks old my father murdered my mother, it was from there that my life had changed forever  I was then placed in foster care where I stayed until I was 18 years of age. I never really knew about the bible or Jesus or what living for Jesus actually meant.  I started going on some Scripture Union camps as a young adult they were great to get away and hang out with fun young people. It was hear I felt so loved a feeling I had never experienced before. All the leaders were Christians and I thought they were all weird because they believed in god. But after a couple of years I started to recognise god was calling me. I started seeing that god is the way and that god loved me and wanted a relationship with me I started reading my bible and praying and attending church. Although my journey is still that a journey I can’t honestly say more than ever that our god is a just god he loves us and cares for us. And now I’m a leader on three Scripture Union camps a year and I get the amazing opportunity to show god’s love to other young people. Without god, holy spirit and jesus in my life I would be lost.

 

i so excited to be marrying a amazing christian man. 

GOD IS GOOD AND HE LOVES ME us MCUH πŸ™‚

Wow!! I love all of your testimonies!! That is awesome to hear, and can’t wait to share with you ladies how God worked specifically in getting me to where I am now: engaged and in a relationship that only God could have orchestrated. But it’s getting late so I’ll share another day. SO GLAD to have stumbled upon this section of the Boards!

I came to know the Lord at a very young age. One would think that would have made my life easier but in many ways it made it harder. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood…” “The theif’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy…” I have experienced much pain in my life. My dad contracted bacterial meningitis when I was four and it damaged part of his brain, forever changing him. He became extremely violent and unpredictable. He was later murdered when I was ten. It took years to get over his death. My sister was very sick as a child and was in and out of hospitals constantly. I doctor said if she developed pneumonia one more time she would probably die. My mother was overwhelmed and would frequently scream how she should never have had kids. It was very tumultuous in her house. My beloved grandmother, the woman who was like a mother to me, was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given six months to live. I could go on and on. I experienced many terrible blows all before the age of twelve. Throughout all this I just remembered Job. “Though he slay me yet will I trust him…” God had a purpose for all of this, it was just my job to hang on. This belief was confirmed when I too became very sick with pneumonia and lay in a tent with a humidifier one night struggling to breath. The Holy invaded the room. The weight fell off my chest and I was told that yes I would experience much pain in this life but He would use it all for His glory. He had much work for me to do. I was to fear not.

 My life since has not really been that much easier. I was in a horrible car wreck that left me unable to walk for a time. I experienced chronic debilitating illness that made it nearly impossible to get out of bed. I learned through that time the incredible power of praise and intercession. I figured I was down but not out so I would use that time to praise God and intercede for others. You would be surprised on how quickly I got well! I guess Satan didn’t like me meddling with his plans??

Later I married a horribly abusive, supposedly Christian man. I have been raped and beaten. I lost my unborn son due to domestic violence. I know what it is like to be without the things other people take for granted like sanitary pads and sneakers. I was isolated and controlled but through it all God was there. He has never left me. He has used all these things to sand off those ugly edges.

 

I prayed to be a woman after God’s own heart and was asked if I knew what that meant. It is the path of pain. David went through terrible trying circumstances to become a man that pleased God. Was I really willing to go there? Did I know what I was asking? But I have come to the conclusion that I want to be a woman who holds a special place in God’s heart. I want be be a person he can use and I still have so many more rough edges to sand off. 

God has taught me about His mercy and I am learning not to judge or condemn others. God has enabled me to love my ex-husband in spite of what he has done. God is constantly using circumstances to free me from the rock that is encasing me. I am learning to have peace inspite of circumstances.  I know that God loves me, inspite of my faults and failings God loves me! I have great reason to rejoice. What is a little pain when I consider all he endured for me?

I have no idea what my life will hold. But I am greatly looking forward to all God is going to do! I love seeing how God uses the sad things from my life to bless and encourage others. I expect more rain to come but I also expect God to triumph through it all. My testimony is more one of endurance I guess πŸ™‚

I want to share the song that most speaks to me. May it bless you as you go through your own valleys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m17af0XmPFo

God has freed me from so much. May I forever praise Him!
