HOW JESUS FOUND ME by Anonymous

How Jesus found me
I grew up in a home of dysfunction, yelling and screaming. My dad was an alcoholic, not knowing how to deal with his anger and pain. He drank to escape. My mom had a lot of fears, some towards men.  And didn't want to be alone. How I felt and thought about myself was similar.  Kids learn by example,  it showed up in my relationships with men also.  Looking for love in all the wrong places so the song goes.  Allowing men to use and abuse me because I didn't know any better and thought that was what I deserved.  Didn't have a good self worth, a healthy one anyway.  

I grew up in church and believed there was a God but didn't KNOW HIM.  Now I know I wasn't born again. I only knew a religion, not a relationship with God. I was at rock bottom and started to turn to my Bible,  reaching out to God the best way I knew how. God started to reach me in the hell I was in.  I opened my Bible in my bedroom and mentioned it to God. I can't do this!  I felt like HIS word was to say be perfect.  And I knew I couldn't keep HIS standard.  Then one day I was in the shower HE shattered my heart into pieces.  HE emptied me of myself, to where all I was, was a shell.  

As I was walking through the kitchen I heard Jesus call my name!  HE always talks to me unexpectedly so I knew it was HIM.   And I asked HIM.  Me?  You want me?  HE moved me out of state into a new beginning.  I became a new creation in Christ.  Learning HIS unconditional love and mercy for me.  HE sent the Holy Spirit and filled me with HIM to whom I couldn't wait to learn and know!  And how HE revealed Jesus to me.  I learned I don't have to keep HIS standards,  Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for me.   

It has been about 20 years since HE called me. HE has healed my heart, healed my past, and now shows me how to love myself in a healthy way.  Also,  how to love and forgive others ( past and present)  It's a lifelong process with HIM and HE is so faithful!  

I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVES!  And I KNOW I'M FORGIVEN!

BROKEN HEART by Edgar De Leon

One day at my job, I met a girl. I have never met her before because she was working the morning shift and I was working night shift. We spent time together, went to the movies, went out to dinner and finally we were officially in a relationship. Time passed by and we decided to get married. We got ourselves an apartment and we moved in together. Everything was perfect. We were both working, paying our bills, and having fun during the weekend. It was just perfect. Until one day, the economy struck us really hard. I lost my job and we weren't able to pay our bills anymore so we had to do something about it before it was too late. We, my wife and I, went to talk to my mother in law for help and she offered us to move in with her while everything comes back to normal. We agreed to pay her some amount to live under her roof. Two weeks after moving in with my mother in law, I got an interview. I was so excited but the job was a part time job. I didn't care because I was not working

LIFE STORY by Mushak Khan

Life is a game for everyone and everyone has some challenges in it. Some people think that it's good or bad luck but many people believe that it’s their own duty to win or lose that game. I am also a winner of a very unusual and crazy game of life. I am an adopted child. Though I am a girl and I was adopted by a couple who was living in a small village and was hardly fulfilling their basic needs. That was the time when I was only 2 and half years old. I don’t know anything about my parents like who they were and why they left me (though I miss them a lot today). I was 6 years old when I firstly faced the child abuse (harassment) by a teacher. I was a child and I was totally unaware of good and bad touch. But it didn’t sound nice to me to be touched by an unknown person. I asked my grandma about that scenario but she didn't panic because she was not willing to adopt me. I talked to my mom but she also didn’t care. Then I realized there was nobody to help me and this was abusi
