I only came to faith two years ago, and in that time my life has being transformed completely.
My life before placing Jesus in the driver seat was broken, lost, and I almost gave up hope that there was any point to it all.
Like most people I looked for answers where I could find them. I tried to fill my life with success by a having or at least pretending to have a successful business.
When I failed at trying to be successful and looking like I had it all together, I turned to things that would help me to numb the pain like gambling, alcohol and prescription drugs and pain killers.
I was very depressed, lost and a very angry person who was on the edge of divorce, being bankrupt, losing my relationships with my family and friends. I was in serve chronic pain from an existing injury, and it got the point serval times where I just wanted to end it all, or I had extreme anxiety attacks that put me in the hospital.
I was literally at the bottom of my barrel; my back was against the wall.
I tried everything in this broken world towards finding the answer towards a happy joy filled life.
Well, I thought I had.
I hadn’t given God a chance, so I decided 2 years ago to give my life to Christ (I will share my story of how I came to faith another time – just know that if want to come to faith and follow Jesus with me you can, and I would be happy to help you if you wanted that help).
Now I have shared what my life was like before coming to faith, and I am certain that all most everyone reading this can relate to this kind of life in one shape or another.
Since I gave my life to Christ, I now have a marriage which has been completely transformed. I am truly madly deeply in love 😍 with my beautiful wife Sarah – I love how we have partnered up to help each other in all areas of life.
We have gone from being almost bankrupt to having a very successful business that supports us fully. We have gone from being supported by Centrelink payments to paying ourselves and becoming self-sufficient. We have also paid out all of our debts and this month we bought a brand new 4wd. We are now we are saving up to buy our first house.
I am now enjoying a life pain-free because God helped me out and healed me through a miracle. The doctors wrote me off and said there was nothing they could do for me and I would need to learn to live a life of chronic and severe pain…
My relationships with my family and friends have never been better.
Sarah and I are on the leadership team at our local church as apprentice elders, and we are interns studying to become church planters and pastors.
I am living a life that is fulfilled and very joyful.
All this has being made possible because of my relationship with My Lord Jesus Christ.
My life has been completely transformed. Romans 12:2 comes to mind.
I love what Christ has done in my life and what I see him doing in others.
If you are struggling to live life in a broken world I encourage to seek out a life with Jesus Christ.
If you are hungry to learn more about this, I would be more than happy to have a chat with you and help you towards following Christ as your lord and saviour.
