    What a powerful testimony! We have things we have done that we are not proud of and they often leave us in bondage. I love how once she was able to tell her truth, she became free of the shame and God provided a way for her to graduate.

      Thanks Ayanna. Agreed, I’m grateful for the burden that’s lifted when we choose to stand in truth with God.

    I work for a faith based crisis chat line. Ive been doing it for 4 years. The first fall season after I started working. I realized when I would have international Chatters it became very clear the pressures that they had and University. So many of them their complete identity is within their education. I had to learn very quickly how to handle these type of stressful situations for my chatters. So many of them were contemplating suicide because they were failing their education. My heart would break every time I get one of these chatters. I always try to explain how their identity can be in Christ who lives them unconditionally. However many of them were not of the Christian faith but I am so blessed that I get a chance to plant the seed within those hearts that are struggling. I grew up in a Christian home, went to Christian School went to church Faithfully. Yet I did not start growing until I was married and had children. And then I had a period of time that I back slid and did some very regrettable things through all that time. I am completely surrendered to my heavenly Father and there is absolutely no other way I would want to live. I started my online blog ministry as a way to share the truth for those broken hearts so that they may see that Christ can be all they need to sustain them and to heal their wounded hearts in restoring their life in a beautiful way

      April, I’m so grateful for your comment! You’ve added some powerful info here that I hope helps anyone stopping by to read of a story that feels familiar to them. I’m also so grateful that the Lord had you speaking to so many people who needed to hear that He loves them no matter what. I pray that God would strengthen you to receive every phone call and give you the compassion and words you need to convey His message of hope and love. I also pray that through your site (https://healinginheart.com/) many women (and men) strengthen their walk with the Lord.

    What a strong example of God’s lovingkindness. He is such a patient God. I have been feeling like I haven’t been praying for guidance enough lately and I appreciate the lovely reminder in this testimony. Thank you for sharing!

      You’re most welcome Jasmine. And Oh how grateful I am for His patience. There are things I hold onto for way too long after He tells me to lay them aside. I love that when it come to the things that please His heart, He tells us to ask and receive.

    This was such a beautiful read! Many many thanks for sharing.
    I felt a weight lifted off when I read it 🙂
    It’s amazing how longsuffering and kind our God is. So much patience for our shortcomings.
    By the way, in the culture where I come from education and career is also absolutely everything. I just wish it was more about your spirituality or how kind/happy/life-and-people-loving you are. Edu & job are important but they have nothing on what God has to offer 🙂

      It’s my pleasure to share, Nadia. I’m humbled that God would allow me to use this platform to touch others. I agree, of course we need education and jobs, but I think in the process of achieving those things we’ve pushed God out.
      By the way, cute website!

    What a powerful testimony! Back when I was in senior college, I fully accepted God as our Saviour and it’s the best decision of my life! Now I know that there is someone who looks after me and who gives me everything that I deserve. Continue living a glorious life and keep on inspiring people!

      Allowing God to lead your life and the decisions you make along the way will ALWAYS be the best choice of your life! I agree, walking with Him and following His lead gives a freedom in knowing the He will always lead in the right direction (no matter how difficult the journey may seem).

    Powerful and inspiring! More people should share their testimony because we never know how God will use it to touch other lives. This is amazing and I am definitely sharing.

    • Reply Jen E. 2018 at 10:09 AM

      Michelle, you’re absolutely right! Sharing our testimony allows us to be released from a past that may be holding us down in shame. We’ve all got a story to tell and so much value will come from encouraging each other.
