I also have a lot of experience with my Jesus. I think the last 9 years are like a testimony to me. I would like to share one of them with you all because it is always good to share our testimonies with others. Because it will be an encouragement for our spiritual journey.
When Jesus healed people, few times He told them not to tell anyone, but most of the time He asked them to show yourself to others. Because we all need a push sometime.
Before I write this I would introduce myself in a few words. I am Angel John from Kerala in India. I was raised as a Hindu until I was 19yrs old. I met Jesus when I was 19 and since then I am living with my Father. I felt like I was an orphan but now I have a family and a loving Father. I am 29yrs old and unmarried, which is a big deal for an Indian family. Here everything is ‘marriage’. So my family, neighbours and relatives are feeling very sad and put me into sympathy most of the time. They are worried.
So last month my father went to meet an astrologer, he told a lot of terrible things to my father including I am a curse to this family. He suggested a number of virgin poojas and sacrifices to different gods in different temples. I don’t go to temples and do these things since 2006. But I can’t deny my father because he is very strict and wants me to do whatever he decides to do. My mother tried to cover me because she too knows Jesus and she knew my mind. My father started to fight with her for this. I went to him and told him that, I will do anything you want. He made me read three pages full of pooja lists. I said I will do this... then I went to my room and prayed on my knees.
I said; ‘Father, I don’t bow down in front of any of these gods so please don’t let anyone make me do this. Help me. Talk to my papa’s mind. He won’t listen to me. Please help me Father.’ My papa kept the list on his table and told my amma and me to get ready to do this on this Sunday. I kept praying about that. That list was there for almost 2 weeks... my father didn’t ask me to do this after that night. Finally one day, that list disappeared from that table. What a wonderful Father we have... don’t we? He knows, I can’t.... but I know He can.
So when you have problems, don’t try to solve them by yourself, because you never understand another person’s mind. But Father knows, so give to Father and be free. He will take care of everything. I am proud to be His daughter and love Him more than anything in this world.
