He Has Done More Than Enough

I've been facing some kind of spiritual problems. Ever since i knew myself. Each time i sleep at night, i'll experience some kind of oppression. By the time i wake. It will turn out to be failure on me. I mean after they have oppressed me in the dream as the day breaks if i go out to look for job, ask for something, or had am appointment, it will be a negative result because i've been oppressed its like they hate taken my victory. It really pays to serve Jehovah God. I turned to Him and i'm delivered without going to meet prophets. It can still work for you.

Dance of Praise!

I am an aspiring ballerina from Sydney Australia. When I was 16 I triped at school & broke my knee. I had 3 surgeries over 2 years in which I was bed ridden & had to learn to walk again. The Doctors said I would never dance on pointe again. I had to prove them wrong because there was no way I could live without dancing!! I did & now I'm on a scholarship at the Joffrey Ballet School New York! I have a meeting with the directors of a professional Christian Ballet Company this week, I pray that this too will work out, after all he helped me to dance again! I dance for Jesus! Praise the Lord!!! :)

God always comes through

Money is tight in my household. Last month I accidentally overpaid my cable bill by $130. When I contacted the company, the rep said they don't give credit. To get the money back I would have to tell my bank to stop the payment AND it would take the cable company 30 days to refund the overpayment. I was panicking because it was already 5 days since the incident so the bank wouldn't refund the money. When I checked my latest cable bill it was going to be the usual amount. I kept saying God, I need a miracle because I really can't afford to pay an extra $130 to these people. Today I looked at my bill again and the credit had been applied!! I'm so happy. Thank you Jesus!

God's Love

Ive been blessed in a way that i never knew was a blessing i am a recovering drug addict. For so long in my younger years my mother was an addict i watched her destroy her life wit drugs and alcohol,never understanding how she coukd allow such a small thing to control so much if what and how she did things.we were alwats moving everything was unstable there was no money sometimes no food ,new clothing or just badic things ypu need to survive.i had lots of hatred and anger in my heart.now i suffer from the same addiction problems my mother had.God has showed me this part of that storm to open my heart and my eyes to the struggle it is on a day to day basis for addicts.had i never experienced it i would have never understood it. Ive been so bad on drugs numerous times to the point of loosing everything i have owned ,things i worked hard for.i had to learn this lesson so many times because for some reason each time i struggled with it i wasnt getting what God was trying to show me pain=jo

Ask and It Will Be Given To You

I asked God to guide and tell me if my current relationship is the one He destined for me. The person I am with is also a Christian and a good man that you can't ask for more but I still keep praying for God's "answer" for my prayer. For few months we were both happy but we are in a long distance relationship because of my work. Until few months later, he told me that he decide to part ways with me due to his load of problems to take care of and I really do think he need to give the time for me to his other personal and family problems. At that time, I was not hurt because he can't lean on me during his down times but I remembered my prayer to God. What was in my mind was, "So God is NO." It took time for me to get over him even though God said NO but God help me to recover. Right now, that guy and me are good friends and he is now with his "the one". I asked and it was given to me. Glory to God who watch and take care of us.

God is faithful

God has seen me through many difficult circumstances in life as a Christian. Front the birth of my son Isaiah, to being evicted with just the clothes on my back, and nearly on the street, to difficult relationships. I know god is faithful and will never forsake me, I know that in my heart, but I am struggling with a deep depression because of a situation that I am in. The depression is so deep that I am loosing all hope for anything in life and joy and peace. And I sleep a lot too. Please pray that I go back to church , that I continue to pray, and read the bible, and the depression lifts, and I have peace and joy again and that my situation improves. I know somehow god will come through....
—Guest Helen

To be continued...

I do not have a testimony just yet. But I have promised myself to come back here after God helps me through this tough time and then I can share my story and how he helped me.

I still believe

I am a single mother of four. I have been through so much I can't begin to list sometimes I feel like Job, but I know God had the first and last word in my life. It doesnt feel good at all. I struggle alot financially. My truck is broke, just was evicted.and the list goes on , but I still believe God is going to restore everything that the I've lost and double my blessings. In Jesus almighty name .Amen.
