I first must say this is MY testimony and nobody else’s. Some believe you can say too much or too little, but I believe in being transparent and sharing how God healed this broken vessel and transformed my life forever more. “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony...” Revelation 12:11
When I look in the mirror today, I am so grateful to God for the great and mighty things He has done in my life. When I think of some of the foolish roads I have traveled just longing to be accepted and not rejected, I praise Him for protecting me even when I had no strength to help myself.
I can’t begin to articulate the overwhelming sadness I felt in my younger years from abuse, foster care, and the absence of my biological father. This resulted in depression, insecurity, being withdrawn, having very little desire to live and was filled with frustration, wondering why I was ever born. Oh my, the devil is a liar, because my God had a plan and purpose for my life, just as he does for you!
Every minute of my life that I chose to walk in bitterness and unforgiveness, allowed me to continue being the victim and not victorious. Please don’t shed a tear or feel sorry for me. I’m not that youngster anymore, and God has truly done an amazing work in my life. He really is a miracle working God and will meet your every need if only you will trust and believe in Him. He continues to do so many marvelous things in my life and I owe it to Him to tell others about His goodness.
Allow your test to be a testimony that will inspire and encourage someone to believe and trust the very same God who delivered you from your past hurts, defeats, and sorrows. Remember no matter how big the mess has been, God can and will restore you if you will allow Him to.
