My life before attending the UCKG here in New Zealand, where do I start ??
Like many others I was brought up in a church baptised when just a baby thought nothing of it. Went to church only Sundays and attended Sunday school then the choir. I grew up watching my Parents argue all the time, my father drinking and smoking beating my mother until she was black and blue.
At the age of 18, I started drinking going out, I was a liar, a thief, started sleeping around with many guys , smoking, smoking weed, you name it I did it all. It all started when I let Hatred and Grudges and bitterness grow in me. I had many relationships which ended in mentally and physically abuse as well as infidelity. That led me to start having suicidal thoughts.
When I finally got married many things went wrong. The same thing started happening again the abuse, the unfaithfulness, we didn't have what it took to work things out therefore we split up.
My life was destroyed a complete mess and I actually thought that it was something normal, that's how life is.
I fell into depression and that's when I was invited to attend the UCKG and from then on my life was no longer the same. That was by far the BEST DECISION I ever made. I looked to my God and said, "I can't do this without You, I tried, I failed and I need you to take control and save me."
I am thankful for the mistakes I've made, they have taught me that I can't depend on myself but I must depend and trust in God.
He always know's what's best.
The UCKG has taught me alot and I have listened and learned to put the teachings into practice.
Now my Family is blessed and God has so much more to give to us and we are willing to sacrifice more and more to have what God promised us.
My children are in the presence of God, my husband whom is now an assistant of the church is a great example and a wonderful follower of Christ. We are both strong in our Faith and we wouldn't exchange it for anything or anyone!!
IF YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE BIBLE, WE MUST GET TO KNOW THE AUTHOR.
Let Christ be first in our thoughts each morning!
Thank you Jesus for transforming this disobedient woman who once served the devil to an obedient woman whom now serves the one and only true GOD !!
