#TestimonyThursday So the picture on the left was taken around 2010. The girl in the picture had just left high school and headed off to college. She left mama and daddy’s house. She had been sheltered pretty much her whole life, having two older protective brothers as well. This girl left the house very clueless off this world. She was out on her own, no parents, no rules. She began to drink, she would party from Weds- Sunday. She began to become very promiscuous with men. Seeking and searching for something, feeling a sense of something missing. She Kept trying to fill this void. Not knowing that what she needed was Jesus Christ. She looked like she was happy on the outside and as if she was having a good time. But on the inside, she was emotionally broken/jacked up. She would jump from one bad relationship to another without having the proper time to heal from the damage of the previous. She kept going around the same mountain, doing the same things expecting different results. Webster would call this Insanity. She would find temporary pleasure in the things of the world, such as drinking , partying and sex and whatever else that was trending. But those things would only satisfy her flesh for a moment and would soon vanish. Still coming up short. Fast forward to 2012 she hit rock bottom. This was one of the most lowest points of her life. At that moment all she could do was call on the name of Jesus. She made up her mind that she could not live this life anymore without Him. She then got baptized and later filled with the Holy Spirit and received the gift of tongues. Her life was changed forever. She would never be the same. Now the girl on the right; She’s been through hell and high water. But through the mess, she became a miracle. With the tests – she now has a testimony. She has had to be strong and God has been preparing her for such a time like this. She loves Jesus and gives Him all the glory. Thank you God for your GRACE, in which we ALL have access to. I’ve never had a peace like I got once I trusted God as my Lord and Savior. Something not tangible- but yet very much so impacting and real in my life! I can feel the presence of the Lord daily! There’s a saying “I don’t look like what I’ve been through “. I’m so glad that I don’t , bc I would be dirty , and ugly and nasty. This is my story, nobody else’s. No judgment towards anyone because just as it was a process for me, I know it’s the same for other folk. But better sooner than later to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Galatians 5:20-23 tells us about the very things I was doing was going to cause me to NOT inherit the Kingdom
Of God. I might have made it in by the skin of my teeth but I wouldn’t inherit His kingdom. I want all my crowns when getting to heaven. Remember tomorrow isn’t promised. God is coming back for his people. Praise God for #Healing #saving #Deliverance Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things are passed away; behold, new things have come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
