Healing Is a Choice

This is the Healing Is A Choice testimony Steve read on the radio today:

Before coming to this weekend I was in a dark place that felt scary, alone, and helpless. I was living in bondage – trapped by sin and shame that felt too big and unforgivable for me to bring to God. I felt small, invisible, and insignificant in the eyes of others. This weekend has been an emotional breakthrough that God can love even me. That he can use ordinary people that are broken and damaged to do great works in his name. It has given me hope when I feel I had none. It has been the toughest, most emotionally exhausting stripped raw experience I have ever had but by far the most freeing. I leave here with a new self image of who I am. Not by “man’s standard“, not by the world’s view, but as who Christ has made me and sees me to be. That with a willing attitude and of hard work I can change my life and open the door for Christ to use me for His glory. - Daminica

St. Patrick Quote:

Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ behind me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

This is the Every Man’s Battle testimony Steve read on the radio today:

This morning I am feeling a little drained after all the emotions I have experienced this weekend. Also, I am feeling hopeful. Hopeful that things really have changed. I don’t have to be the man I was, a sad little man with a secret so dark he could not share it with anyone; a secret that was destroying me; a secret that was slowly eating me alive. Instead, I can be the man God meant for me to be, a man of integrity who loves and protects his wife; a man who walks with God and seeks after righteousness; a man that I always have wanted to be. - Paul
