A Muslim woman was seeking to fill the void in her heart by serving religion for 22 years until she heard the audible voice of Christ that turned her life around.
Serving Religion For 22 Years
Hedieh and her parents migrated to the United States in search of the American dream. Finally, they found it, and their daughter grew up in a wealthy family. But despite all the wealth, Hedieh always felt empty. She wondered why when she had everything, she still felt sad. So, to fill the void, she went deeper into their religion.
Desperate to know God, Hedieh tried different branches of Islam. Then she found a group that was a fit for her and became an ambassador against extremism and terrorism. The Muslim felt she was contributing to the country and her faith. So for more than two decades, she maintained a strict adherence to Islamic law.
“It was this never-ending attempt to control your fleshly desires, your behavior, in an effort to draw closer to God,” she said. “You’re always afraid of what He’s gonna do to judge you and it’s not about love at all. You were constantly praying to a god that didn’t answer you.”
An Encounter With Jesus Christ
As a result, Hedieh got frustrated and left Islam after serving for 22 years. Her Imams even warned her that she sure is now going to hellfire because of her decision. She felt lost but longed for God in her life.
One day, she watched a video preaching of a Christian pastor online. He spoke about having a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Hedieh was moved and began to be confused with her present belief. Soon after, she prayed a desperate prayer in an Islamic way.
“Can You please reveal Yourself to me? Because I am so utterly confused on who You are,” Hedieh cried out to the One True God. And all of a sudden, an audible voice replied, “Hedieh, it’s Me.”
From that moment, Hedieh was never the same again.
