Testimony – JENNY
Below is a brief preview of what Jenny will share with us this week. Come find encouragement from her testimony of how the Lord has been faithful to her, pursued her, & loved her when she has needed Him the most.
“Each time I shared, the pain was divided and the burden was lifted. I felt the love and forgiveness of Christ and I was able to forgive myself. When I relapsed again just one month later at Christmas, I was angry at myself and feeling like a complete failure, but I was obedient and kept coming, took my blue chip, shared, and was again met with love and forgiveness and the burden was lifted. I haven’t used since. I created a boundary to abstain from going to my parents’ house for 5 months after that. I’ve since visited them four separate times, this Thanksgiving included, and did not use. My romantic relationship was the last thing I was holding on to from my old life. I was petrified of letting go of the only “healthy” man I had ever been with and afraid of being completely single. I had no desire to let it go. I prayed for God to align my will with His. And He did. In April, I was able to respectfully end a relationship in a healthy manner.”
“The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From His temple He heard my voice; my cry came before Him, into His ears. He reached down from on high and took hold of me; He drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. He brought me into a spacious place; He rescued me because He delighted in me.” – from Psalm 18
Principle 7: Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God and His will for my life and to gain the power to follow His will.
Step 11: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and power to carry that out.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly.” Colossians 3:16
