This post is part of an ongoing series featuring testimonies from the people of this community:
Emmanuel: “I got baptized and my problems got amplified in certain situations. I think God wanted to show Himself to me. I think God wants to show me the right way; I’m currently in that process now of getting myself healed and going on the right road, and fixing the relationships I currently have with my family and friends. I feel like I’m way better now than I was before. I attribute that to getting more involved with my church. I’ve been in this church for more than 5 years, and I never really got myself involved, I never really met any members. I’m an introvert, so I’m very to myself. I think God has been telling me to step out in faith. It’s one step at a time and I’m very slow, but I feel like God is taking me somewhere. I’m a lot happier now than I was before.
It’s amazing how certain scriptures you read or hear…you have to repeat it to yourself one or two times, or even on a daily basis. It’s not even words; it’s the feeling, the emotion it speaks, it’s shouting in your life. It’s something God wants you to hear and understand, and you have to take hold of it.
For the past year, God has been intentionally going in my life, whether He’s using people or situations in my life, He’s putting me in positions where He’s telling me to really get involved with my church. Well, not even with my church, but with Him. God has really been telling me if I just come to him, he’ll heal a lot of my sorrows, he’ll show me the right road. The road is amazing, it’s a good road to be on, and I’m very thankful to be on it.”
