Thank God For Working In My Life

November 28th, 2015

I just want to share that I have finally gotten a job and I am very grateful to God for answered prayer. This year has been very complicated for me and due to some very difficult circumstances, I was not able to work for most of the year. This was really very difficult for me, because I have always worked – started working while I was a full-time college student and hadn’t ever stopped. By God’s grace, my supportive family was there during this difficult time and after the money I had saved was gone, they supported me financially as well, especially since they knew how badly I wished I was in a position to work.

Finally, 3 months ago, I was blessed with the ability to work! I was so excited and started looking for a job. But almost 3 months later, I had applied to so many jobs and been to some interviews and still wasn’t employed. It was very shocking to me, because I was known for getting a job with minimal effort. In the past I would go to my first interview, be offered a job and that would be the end of the search. It was easy.

But this time around was different. I had to take a step back and really figure out what was going on. So I went to God. What I have realized is that I put too much trust and confidence in my own ability, and even though I always thanked God for what I had, I still wasn’t putting enough focus on the fact that God graciously gives me everything I have.

I must say that what I have gone through this year has really brought me closer to God. I used to feel like everything in my life came easy and with each year, my relationship with God worsened. I was raised in a good Christian home and used to have such a wonderful, enjoyable relationship with God when I was younger. But that faded away in my adult life. I was still attending church occasionally, rarely reading my Bible, but the relationship was nothing like it used to be. I certainly wasn’t praying on a daily basis.

This year, I have really begun to understand the grace of God and His loving mercy. And I have started to regrow and redevelop my relationship with God and it has been quite enjoyable. I feel God is preparing me for success in the next phase of my life and reminding me that once I walk with Him, the future will be bright!

Now, God has blessed me with a part-time retail job, and I am so very grateful! I am still looking for another job, because I am a professional in the finance industry and would like to return to that field, but this job has given me hope and a source of income and I place to look forward to going. This part-time job is also a blessing because I will be able to keep working there in the evenings, even when I get a full-time job (which is something I have done in the past – work full-time during the day, and part-time at night to occupy my evenings).

I am so grateful for my family and for everything they have done to support me. I am so grateful that God has given me inner peace and is just helping me and changing me into a better person. I have grown so much as a person and as a Christian and I could not be more excited about the future and who I see myself becoming. God has really been gracious and it’s such a wonderful thing. All praise to Him!! Amen.

Hi Beloveds,

My name is Thabisang and I’m a South African. I would like to share with you the testimony of my sister in law whom God saved miraculously.

On the 25th Oct 2008 she was gravely ill and lying in hospital bed. She had brain tumor, stroke, high potassium salts in the body and very strong infections. My husband & I were called to come and see her. When we got there, there were 9 medical staff attending to her and they told us that they tried their best and we should expect anything. She was half dead when I looked at her. We went to phone the parents and tell them that she looks like she is going to die any moment and doctors has no hope. My sister in law stopped breathing for about 30min and the nurses tried to resuscitate her with no luck. When one of them was about to write on the file that she is dead, she came back to life.

Two days later, she was healed and was free from the pains. She stayed in hospital 1 week just for observations.

She shared with us about what happened when she died. At first, she felt a strong pain cutting through her chest and she also heard a big sound of a trumpet. The trumpet was so loud as if the whole world hears it. She then saw her spirit being separated from her body. She saw herself in the spirit moving up the sky. She arrived at a place which was all white and when she got there, she saw many angels and God sitting on a chair.

God placed her on His hand. There was a big screen television and God was having a book next to Him and paging the book. God first told her that, I knew that this day would come while you were still in your mother’s womb. God then showed her a video of her life from when she was born. She saw herself in the video and could not deny that it was her. She lived a life of unrighteousness on earth. After showing her the video, God told her that she is forgiven and will be sent back to earth. God then took her to hell and showed her how she deserved to be thrown in hell. She saw people that she know screaming at her to save them as they were burning in the fire.

God then told her that she must go back to the earth and tell everybody that He loves them and no one must judge another because He judges and He looks at a man’s heart.

God told her that because I have forgiven you, no one will judge you again. God promised her that He will provide for her children.

At that time she was 8 months pregnant with her 3rd child. She is unmarried and the kids are for different fathers. Then she saw herself moving like she is floating and going back to her body. As she came back to life and opened her eyes, the nurses and doctors were shocked.

Praise the Lord for his mercy and love. I want to encourage all of you that heaven is so real and keep walking ritghteuos before God.

In Dec 2008, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Praise the Lord!

Pretoria, South Africa.

Jeremiah 29:11

November 26th, 2015

I am greatly comforted by all these powerful testimonies I have read. I am heavily burdened and cry deeply even as I write this now. I have always been an excellent student and by the grace of God I got admission to study engineering a couple of years ago.

But ever since I entered the university, I have been a very below-average student. I try to study all that I can but still keep on failing. Because of this, I couldn’t get close to my classmates because I felt they wouldn’t identify with my level of intelligence.

I have only a few friends in class and I sometimes don’t get anyone to help me with my assignments. I find it difficult to tell my mother the situation because, I feel she would be so much disappointed. I have tried to improve my results but things are getting from bad to worse.

Even today, I had a paper in the morning which I couldn’t write because when I went to the exam hall I couldn’t find my name. I just dont seem to understand what’s happening. I feel so disappointed and I have been asking Jesus to see me through. Even through all this I still have strong belief that my failures can be changed to excellent passes – Yes I strongly believe that. But I need your prayers as well since even at certain times I wished I would just die because I couldn’t live with this disappointment. I have trusted God and I still am trusting Him for this miracle. I know he has bigger plans for me and His thoughts are definitely higher than mine.

So if you read this today and you are in a similar situation, I just want to encourage you that you are not in this alone. I just want you to be strong and know that IN ALL THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS.

Feel free to contact me at stephenarthur44 at yahoo dot com and I think we will have excellent testimonies to share together.
The battle is the Lord’s.

I am a new Christian and received Jesus as my Lord and Savior about 6 months ago.  During this time I was neck deep in sin and extremely depressed.  My life seemed to be of little value and utterly hopeless.

However, God’s Holy Spirit began convicting me and I finally broke down and cried out in submission.  Instantly I felt the presence of God in my heart and mind, and an unexplainable peace settled over me.  My life changed in the blink of an eye as I began to live for God instead of myself.  The more I did His will, the closer I drew to Him.

Fast forward a couple of months…I began to lose touch with God and His word which weakened me to the point of deliberate sin.  I ended up having sex and fornicating with a girl I did not love.  3 days later I felt sick; chilly, headache, sore throat, and fever.  My throat ‘infection’ never went away and I got lesion like yellowish bumps on the back of my throat.

It is now four months later and I finally got a throat culture for STI’s at a health clinic.  The culture came back positive for Herpes Simplex Virus and Chlamydia. By man’s standards, Herpes is incurable, but God’s ways are higher than ours!  Matthew 19:26 Jesus said to them, with men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible“!  

I know in my heart and truly believe that God can do ANYTHING.  The enemy says that I have to live like this as punishment for my sin, but God promises much better.  He is my Healer, my Deliverer, and my Redeemer.  James 5:16 ” Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. ”  

Brothers and sisters reading this, you are righteous no matter what you have done!  We are clothed in Christ’s righteousness as He died for us.  Romans 3:22 ” This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe…”  I am currently fasting and repenting from all sins I am committing willfully.  

So I come here humbly and ask for fervent prayer for me. For the manifestation of the healing that Jesus paid for on the Cross.  Please ask God to strengthen my faith and draw me closer to Him.  Whatever you feel in your heart…thank you all so much ? I thank you Father in Jesus’ name for my healing that will come… and for all the love and support from my brothers and sisters out there.

Needing God’s Healing

November 20th, 2015

I was diagnosed a few months ago with herpes. I have been praying for so long for God to heal me. I feel it in my sprit that all will be well but I keep losing my faith. I keep giving up and thinking why would God want to heal me. I need prayers please. I am so ashamed to ask for help in my church but I feel I need someone to lay hands on me.

I need god’s healing to cleanse me of this disease. I don’t know where else to turn anymore, I can’t keep living with this disease. I’m praying for my next test to come back negative. I have full faith!thank you for your prayers, God bless.

Please Pray for Me – Herpes

November 18th, 2015

Hi All,

I am so happy that I found this site.  I grew up in a Christian household since I was a kid and was shocked when I contracted HSV2 in 2008.  It has been on my mind every day since and I have been looking for cures all over the internet.  I have tried all sorts of alternative treatments and nothing worked.  I have also prayed to God about getting rid of this disease, but this far, I still have the disease.

Yesterday, I was thinking about my life and how I felt like God was speaking to me get closer with him these days.  Then all of a sudden, I did a search on healing herpes with God and found this site.   I am asking everyone who has experience with this to give me some advice and also pray for me.  I really want this virus out of my system and will pray very hard everyday.  The success stories on this site really motivate me to work and pray harder.  I just humbly ask that people who read this can also join me in prayer for my healing.  I want to get a blood test next month and am praying that I get rid of this disease.  Thank you.

Reborn as a New Person

October 25th, 2015

Hello. I am here to share my experience. I am a teenager and is currently having a mission of saving more lives and introducing God’s names to the lost.

When I was small, I was very close to God. I go to church and I definitely loved it. But as time goes on, I grew distant. I hate going to church and always thought that it was such a waste of time. My life started going downhill at that point. I did not have good academics no matter how hard I try, I faced friendship troubles, I got hypothyroid ,my personality became rebellious and bad. I was broken for sure.

But, as I turn 15 this year, my sister told me about how God guided her. And I started realizing and how some people were saved and healed in His name. I was amazed and I wanted to experience healing. Up till one day, my pastor said that the key was to go inside the presence of God, and to trust and believe.

God seems to hear my pleading and one day, my mom and I went to the holyland. I experienced LOTS OF AMAZING things there. One of the most amazing was when I went to sea of Galilee . We were riding on a boat and right there and then, I felt a beautiful calming presence. And I knew instantly, it was God’s. It was too beautiful that I can’t even express it in words. Starting from that day, I decided I want to change. I want to be closer to God.

I got baptized, and I started reading the bible. I listen to sermons, I go to church and now, my life was renewed. I am doing excellent in my academics, my sickness was now almost fully cured. And I BELIEVE it is all thanks to his mighty power. So, praise Jesus, for all his kindness and loyalty towards me. Thank him for all the patience has have given us and BELIEVE in miracles for it will happen once you put your trust in him.

I was reluctant to share the testimony at first, but I hope it will save and encourage more teens to build a strong and intimate relationship to God. May God bless you. Thank you

Freedom Through My Surrender!

October 21st, 2015

The past couple of months, I have been playing keyboard at our new church. We moved to a new city and state three months ago and the church we were invited to didn’t have a keyboard player. Although I was still “wet behind the ears” I volunteered to play. I tend to let my excitement over something override my rational thinking. I failed to consider I’ve only been playing songs a little over a year, and exclusively in the privacy of my home-by myself.

I practiced with the group for about a month, trying to sync up with the other band members. Then I began playing on Sunday mornings-and that’s when the trouble started. By the second week I was overcome with anxiety. All that went through my mind, while playing on stage, was to get through the song set and no more! It was quitn’ time! On more than one occasion, I told my husband,

“I can’t do this. I want to quit. The fear is too great.”

Each week seemed to bring more and more fears and anxiety. The moment the service started, the nervousness came like waves over me. I had to grit my teeth and bear through each song service, only finding relief when I was seated in my seat?off the stage! You ask, why didn’t you just quit. No big deal. The funny thing is I wanted to play. I enjoyed playing but that nagging fear kept raining on my parade.

So here I am crying (literally) to God on how I can’t do this anymore and it’s too hard. How I need His help…But giving up was not easy. Actually, it wasn’t really an option. Now rewind to a year prior. I was just beginning to get a grasp on putting chords together to play smoothly-nowhere ready to play outside the home; and the Lord showed me a quick image of myself playing keyboard in a church. At the time, we had no intentions on moving, nor did the current church we were attending need any extra keyboard players. It didn’t make sense then, but in time it all unfolded. Fast forward to now, the Lord reminded me of what He showed me the previous year, and despite how I was feeling, I was in the center of His will

I was reminded of how we are given “cups to drink,” if you will. Plans that God has for our lives that don’t always line up with ours. Ones that definitely don’t come easy. Mountains that seem too big to climb. Trials that feel too heavy to bear. Times that our circumstances make us feel anything but peace and joy.

These places have a way of bringing us to a fork in the road. Will we take the road that requires complete surrender and reliance on Jesus? Or the road leading to our own will and self-sufficiency? We wrongly believe being in control is the easiest path to take. Controlling our future is supposed to make life easier, right? To anyone who has chose it knows it’s the weightiest most worrisome route we could ever take.

That trouble brought me to a place of surrender. My prayer changed to something like this,

“Lord I can’t do it on my own. I surrender. I surrender wanting to do things MY way. I drink the cup You have placed in my hand.”

This sounds like an oxymoron, but I found freedom in submitting. Knowing that I didn’t have to fight and stumble and struggle with this decision anymore, but completely give it to Jesus and let Him determine the outcome, was so liberating. It was a weight lifted. How we often think we must carry every trouble we face. We do this by mentally planning escape routes or ways to carry the burden easily. When all that is required is to empty it in the Father’s hands and wait. Watching. Patiently.

It reminds me of the scripture in Romans 6:20, “When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness.” Similarly, when I was a slave to fear, I was free from peace. It took becoming a slave to God’s will, God’s control, to be free from the fear that plagued me.

Submitting ourselves to God brings the greatest freedom to our lives!
