A TRUE LOVE STORY
By Rachael O. Victor
She was born into a family, she grew up seeing her parents fight. When the heat got really hot, mummy left, took her and her elder brother along. Mummy re-married. Soon, She began to steal. Mummy gave her a mark on her face for it but she did not stop. Several accusations sent her away to her grandparents.
An aunty later came for her. Along the line, aunty baptized her with hot water neck down. She also got other doses of horror.
While in her step father’s house, her step father’s house boy introduced her to sexual pleasure. She got into lesbianism, masturbation and sexual relations with children younger than her age, even her baby cousin and a child in her grandmother’s neighbourhood.
She was a chronic liar as well. Oh, lying came natural to her. She was also a bad thief who stole in school, market, shops and at home.
She got into pre-degree. Prior to resumption, she was told that if you work for GOD, you would get admission. This she did. She was active in the drama and dance unit. JESUS in HIS infinite mercies granted her admission into Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ife Nigeria, into political science department and blessed her with really beautiful grades.
On a fateful evening, she was strolling out of Alumni hall of residence, her hostel as a part one student and she met “destiny”. She met a lady who invited her for a program. May 19, 2011, she surrendered her life to the LORD JESUS. JESUS forgave her and changed her life. HE empowered her to restitute, gave her an excellent job as a student with beautiful grades, wonderful friends, a purpose and the promise of a glorious future.
She got back the love and forgiveness of her family. Jesus turned her mess into a message. She is no longer a thief, liar and sexual miscreant. Her life is an evidence of the power of the gospel of JESUS CHRIST. I thank God today, I am saved!
Glory to God!
A message to you
So it doesn’t matter what you have done or what sin you’re battling with. If only you will also come to Christ. “If any man be in CHRIST JESUS, he is a new creation. The old is gone, the new has come” (2 Corinthians 5:17). JESUS forgives your sins, not counting them against you, neither is HE asking you to pay for them. HE paid the price with HIS BLOOD AND LIFE. All you need to do is admit that you are a sinner, believe JESUS died for your sins and resurrected for your justification. Confess JESUS with your mouth as your LORD and personal saviour. Forsake your old ways, turn your back on the world and choose JESUS forever.
Also ask THE HOLY SPIRIT to come into your life. HE will empower you to live a victorious Christian life. JESUS has a glorious plan for your life. HE wants to heal that painful and horrible past and give you a fresh beautiful beginning. HE has been waiting for you. No one else can ever LOVE you like JESUS! And no other one will ever. JESUS IS IN LOVE WITH YOU!
Receive HIS mercy and love today into your heart, ask HIM to come into your life and heart and forgive you your sins. HE is plenteous in mercy. May the GOD of peace be with you forever!
