TESTIMONY OF MY LIFE HOW YOU CAN OVERCOME!!
I want to bring encouragement to you all. I want to bring truth and I want to give you strength . I am only imparting to you what helps me or who is with me and how I over come.First I want to share my Testimony so you know i have been where you are . It is as so ......A woman given away as a child at age 6 months old, I felt the loneliness and felt the pain. Feeling like my parents didn't love me. A woman who lost her first two parents at the age of 10 years old. A woman married in a very young age at the age of 15 just to escape being molested or raped (this is coming after i was brought back at the age of 8 to my real family) . A woman battered and cut , abused mentally and emotionally by man whom I loved , forgotten and forsaken threw my life in my marriage. Age 20 suicidal thought come and no one knew fighting to stay strong . At age of 40 divorced , 30 years i held on to a dream or promise for the sake of my kids until i could go no more . Like gas in the car my soul became empty of strength that I had to let go. Pain consumes the soul and it wants to quit suicidal thoughts is the one screaming out loud. But we go on and on no matter what....Where does this strength come from ????? Divorced and alone no one in my life new city no friends no family just forgotten and by those you loved and helped . Feeling very empty outside as well as in me. Have you been there ? Suddenly anger comes and you begin to hate those you trusted and then you hurt anyone who tries to get close . Why ? Because of the intense pain in you. Have you been there??? Holding on that it will get better you go on. Life challenges just want to make you quit..... Alone in this walk no one knows your pain so you just go on. (Stay with me continue to read...) You grab at whatever gives you hope and helps you up. In a single life of a person you go looking for love in all the wrong places. Getting deceived with lust that mimics love. Heart broken and confused your reminded of your past pain. Hmmmmmm sound familiar???? Your trust is put out only so your heart be broken and shattered into many pieces....again.!! Raped , by a man you trusted to be a man of God just because you wanted a word from God while he was praying over me . Left for dead by a another man I loved. Stabbed and beaten by my own son . Betrayed and accused by another ....Pain goes on and on and on ......But there is a reason!!!
Romans 5:3 Not only this, but we also rejoice in sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 5:4 and endurance, character, and character, hope. 5:5 And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
1) Pain will make us stronger
2) Pain will make us realize God is the only faithful one to us
3) Pain will show us who truly loves us
IT IS TO BUILD UP CHARACTER AND HOPE......
HOWEVER LISTEN TO THIS !!! THERE IS HOPE IN ALL OF THIS . REASON FOR ALL THIS MADNESS!!!!
Three things I must mention to you that this may be . 1) Self Infliction 2) Testing Of Faith 3) Persecution
What ever it may be GOD IS IN CONTROL.!!!
This is what the Bible says:
Job 31:15 Did not the one who made me in the womb make them? Did not the same one form us in the womb?
WHEN WE ARE MAKING WRONG CHOICES:
Psalms 118:18 The Lord severely punished me,but he did not hand me over to death.
Hebrews 12:6 “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves and chastises every son he accepts.”
YOUR NOT ALONE IN YOUR PAIN ......
Job cried out as we do ....Job 10:18 “Why then did you bring me out from the womb? I should have died and no eye would have seen me!
Psalms 142:1 A well-written song by David, when he was in the cave; a prayer.To the Lord I cry out; to the Lord I plead for mercy.
A MOTHER FOR HER CHILDREN ...Matthew 15:22 A Canaanite woman from that area came and cried out, “Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David! My daughter is horribly demon-possessed!”
So many have gone threw what you going threw, YOUR NOT ALONE!!!
I am with you in this journey......
My dad is close to going home and my son once again in jail also he has been diagnose with some cancer in his thyroid. My daughters struggles hurts my heart as a parent and all the losses I have had in life . Havent seen my rand babies in 9 years and wont until they turn 18, also one died . No your not alone !!!!
I want to share that all things we go threw will only build you into a warrior making the trials just go pass you like it was as if it doesn't exist. Building up trust in one ...GOD and not man . Because we must stop going by what we see , feel, hear, taste or smell, this 5 are our five senses. We weren't given this to be led by but only use temporary to survive in this earth with. To use as tools to our necessities in life. Not to be let them guide us or lead us. The word says :
Galatians 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, depravity, 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hostilities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish rivalries, dissensions, factions, 5:21 envying, murder, drunkenness, carousing, and similar things. I am warning you, as I had warned you before: Those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God!
We are here for one thing to develop into who we were called to be and be transformed by the renewing of our mind in reading his word and knowing him . In getting to realize he gave us free will choice as we call it. To choose life or death blessing or cursing . What we want out of life and what path we will take . All we go threw is on us , the MASTER done did his part. He gave us the victory at the cross how we will take what has been given is by choice. ....
I grow strong threw my trials and without God and his word and his love I wouldn't be here to share this .I am stronger then ever and I have beat death in many ways in my life . Death is all things that come to an end. Well many things have come to an end and my hope and joy and peace still remain . HALLELUJAH !!!!
My testimony is JESUS IS ALIVE AND WELL IN ME AND AROUND ME !!!!!
THIS IS SOURCE OF MY STRENGTH!!!
