I went to encourage you with my testimony. So, I am free and I’m full of life and joy and all of these things, these amazing things God has given me right now, but that is not where I came from. I came from a very hard and scary past, abusive family, abusive, even religiously. My dad was a pastor and he really used the Word of God and a lot of other things to hurt me. And, my mom was mentally ill because of that. And then they divorced, there was drug addiction in my family. I came and saw all of that, which then led to me at teenage years, being suicidal and I attempted it many times. I was like that all the way up to just recently, a couple years ago, even, I still was struggling.
It wasn’t until I finally knew who my King Jesus really was. It was not so much just knowing about Him. He invited me into His chambers. He literally said that I could sit next to Him, and He spoke for Himself. Because, since I grew up in religion, but it was a lot of abusive things; it wasn’t really God. So, for me to sit in the chambers and Him say, “This is me and I have healing for you, I have life for you, I have joy, and peace,” was amazing!
So now you see me, I do want to live. I have a daughter, that’s three. I’m going to be married 10 years. And I am just fiercely, and courageously, and bravely just seeking out God and my purpose and destiny. And I know that there’s a reason that I’m here. From being suicidal to that; that is just the testimony of my life.
I hope that encourages you if you’re in that place, or if you’re coming out of that place. There is hope. Be patient in your healing. There is that healing time. So be patient in the healing; He has so much for you. He has so much in store for you. He has beautiful, beautiful visions, bigger than yours. So just trust Him with your life. He can turn it around fast, just like He did with me.
