I went through a situation, which I never thought I would experience in my life. I stopped looking to my Lord and started looking at the misleading illusions of the world. I was an assistant for 5 years. I was devoted, useful, but as time passed, this came to an end. I started working at night and wasn’t vigilant. My faith became weak, I felt trapped and wanted to do the same things I saw others do.
Until one day I decided to accept a ride from a co-worker. This was the worst day of my life, because it was the day I decided to turn away from everything. I began to live a lie. I no longer cared about the God who loved me so much. We started talking through WhatsApp, we exchanged phone number, went on dates… I went to Church, attended meetings, but it was as though my mind was far away. Only my body was there.
All I wanted to do was leave. So I decided to leave home without thinking about anything, without looking back. I left everything and went to live with my sister, who lived far away from the Universal Church I attended. I decided to run away. I thought everything was great… But this was just the beginning of my downfall. I started drinking, to the point of blacking out and hardly remembering anything the following day.
I got involved with married men and was threatened by them. But I was always aware of the purposes my mother did for me, and never forgot about them. However, my pride kept me from returning to my Lord.
Until one day I found myself in tremendous sorrow. I would cry all day long. So I remembered how happy I used to be in the presence of my Lord. I decided to return, turn away from sin, turn away from everything and surrender my life.
Bishop, today I am writing with a happiness that, I must confess, I haven’t felt in a very long time. I am giving my all for God’s all during this Fast of Daniel.
Today, on 02.08.2015, I can say OH, WHAT A DAY!
I thank God for every purpose made in my favor, for each tear. And, most importantly, because God did not give up on me!
God loves us so much he will never leave us nor forsake us even when we turn away from him he will sti...
