Testimony of a Brahmin Boy Who Accepted Christ

My name is Anurag. I was born and brought up in a Brahmin family in the northern part of India. Hindu rituals and practices were prevalent in my family. Being born in a higher caste of the Hindu Society, I was taught to worship Hindu Gods and goddesses.  I also became an idol worshiper. At the age of 21, I came to know Jesus Christ because I got a miraculous healing from a disease called Chronic depression. After the touch of the Holy spirit, I started growing in the Lord. …

Please Pray for My Healing. Genital Herpes

My name is Crys and I have been diagnosed with HSV 2 Three weeks ago. When the news came, I was devastated and the person that infected me is still in denial and refuses to get tested. Only 3 days after I got diagnosed, I learnt that he wasn’t the man he said he was. Father of 2 children, he is separated and I was not the only person he was calling “Girlfriend”. I pray day and night, I started my Bible studies and I am so scared of having …

Not All Storms Are Bad

Not all storms are bad. During last Sunday’s sermon at church, themed The Storm Is Over, my pastor, said something I had never paid much attention to. He said, much as any storm is potentially dangerous and causes much fear wherever it blows, God is known to use storms to create miracles too. Using the example in Exodus 14, when the children of Israel came up to the Red Sea and started berating Moses for not leaving them in Egypt to die instead of bringing them to the desert and …

I Saw Jesus in a Dream

I’m currently 19 years old and when receiving the dream I was 18 and before the time of the dream I was doing some soul searching. I never grew up in a devout Christian family, always questioning every religion. I got interest in my early age with conspiracy theories of 9/11, New World Oder, and secret occultism. I had previously at a young age had read the Revelation of John, and at some points of my exploration of conspiracy theories I had come to the realization of the Revelation John …

A Broken Heart; Abuse

Its only takes one person to break a heart. My dad would happen to be that person. The man I thought would keep me safe, scared me himself. I even thought at one point I deserved to be… scared. At 12 years old, my heart would have its first real break, and not by a boy. It was evening, I was a young girl going through crazy emotional changes. My brother made me very angry, causing me to lash out and say, “You make me wanna run away.” He laughed …

Prayer for Marriage Restoraion

I have been married for 22 years and although they have not been the greatest we still remained a family. There have been many arguments due to his family and daughter’s behavior. They are very disrespectful at times and it became harder for me to zip my lips. We started growing apart from one another we slept in different rooms and hardly communicated with one another. He went overseas to work and we began to communicate more. It came to a screeching halt when his daughter and her 2 kids …

A Second Life

I was just back home from work when I had the worst pain in my head, and I swallowed an aspirin to get some relief. Wrong choice, but I guess it did not matter because I collapsed to the floor with a cerebral bleed brought on by something similar to an aneurysm, which I was told came from an unknown birth defect that I must have had all my life. As I collapsed my last thought was that this was it, and I hoped to see Jesus next. Maybe I …

How about Self-esteem?

A healthy self-esteem will see the wonderful creation of God in self. So often, Satan uses “pride” as a tool to kill our self-esteem: “the way you behave, you walk is nothing else than pride, you have to humble yourself, close out this pride and learn humility.” And I also got deceived. I wanted always to be humble, that people would see Jesus in me, and indeed I was behaving as a saved person, who is free to do everything in Christ, I had no barriers in talking with someone, …

Four Years of Being Lost in the World

All my life I’ve grown up in church. My grandparents and parents are pastors. 2013-2014, my freshmen year of high school I met this guy who I fell in love with. We dated for a year and couple of months, before I realized I had to end it. Throughout it all the relationship was horrible. I never knew how bad a guy can be to a girl until I met him. From being hit every time he drank to being raped on my birthday. After that I couldn’t deal with all …

A Story of Christian Heartbreak

I felt the need to share my story of what I’ve been through this year because I’ve seen many stories of God miraculously healing, intervening, making people’s lives great and happy and while that is cause for much rejoicing, it’s not always how God works. If you’re a new believer or even yet unsure if you’re ready to give your life to the Lord, I don’t want you to get the idea that becoming a Christian is going to give you everything you want in life – actually as Christians, …
