Hi. Just wanted to share an awesome testimony of what our Lord Jesus has done in my life. As a child, I was abused by my older brother. I was bullied and teased at school by boys.
I grew up as a very angry person, and feeling completely unlovable. I could never understand why I never had friends; and always felt like the whole world was against me. I hated the world as much as I thought it hated me.
I met a man @ 19 years of age, and, because I thought no one else would ever want me, I married him. We have three children, two boys and a girl. I had a blood clot in my lung after my daughter was born, but, praise God, I lived through it...
In 1994 there was a campaign in the UK called, "J.I.M," "Jesus In Me." At that time, I was working in a kitchen and, having time off, (far less on a Saturday), was unheard off. Well, at this particular time, I had a Saturday off, (what a coincidence).
There was an outreach in the town cent re, and there was music, singing, praise, you name it... and I thought, if this is what church is like, I want some.
The following day there was an advertisement in the local paper, saying, "Your local Pentecostal church is here;" giving the address. I thought, wow, I want to go. So, the next Sunday I went along to a meeting.
I sat while the singing was going on, and just cried. I knew something had happened, but didn't know what. I went for the next few weeks, and finally realized that I need Jesus, and asked Him into my life.
It has not been easy sailing; It has taken years and years, but finally, I know just how much Jesus loves me. He has taught me how to love. I now love others, which I could never do before.
I thought I was the most unlovable person ever, but God has showed me beyond doubt just how much He loves me!! He has healed my hurts. He has taught me to forgive; He has turned my whole life around. I was so shy I wouldn't say "Boo" to a goose, now, I can stand up in front of a congregation and give my testimony.
He has taken my temper away; He has given me peace in my heart.
He is wonderful !! He has saved me!! Praise God .
