In the name and authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, I'm really thankful to be given the privilege to testify the goodness of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.

I am Sarah Grace and here is my testimony... 

For 8 years I was married to a person involved in occultism, I witnessed lot of torture and was severely abused. He had separated me from my family and made it very hard for me to get out of the situation.

After years of prayers asking God to guide me to the right path, knowing something is definitely not right, I got the courage to call my mom whom I haven't seen years and asked her to help me out. She wasn't aware of what and I was going through. 

The night I called my Mom, I confessed everything, it was liberating. For the first time, I was able to tell her the truth, and without hesitations she took me out of the house. 

Then I got divorced. But being away from my ex husband didn't mean freedom, but it was just the beginning of more pain and difficulties. The severity of the abuses had left me physically and emotionally damaged...

I still have lesions and scars in my brain due to all the trauma that I had been through. They tortured animals in front of me, I witnessed adultery, orgy, violence , drug abuse, and many evil doings.   

My experiences left me with many questions. Why does it had happened to me? I had become bitter, always angry and short tempered, rude . I live in fear, thinking that my ex and his group are after me. I became distrustful even with my own family members...

There were no amount of counselling, relaxation therapy or even yoga... that could calm me down from the pain and the nightmares. 

My attitude made me leave my family again. 

At the time when I was all alone and had no where to go, then, the Lord guided me.  

I saw an ad in news paper for a place to rent, it was a room from Sister Zarina's flat. She is a Christian and it was her kind gestures, caring ways and constant listening of praise and worship music (her love for Don Moen songs) that made me open up and ask her to take me to the church. It didn't stop there, I felt the hunger to know Him more,  I expressed to her my desire to study the Bible where she asked Pastor Joseph and Sister Romely to minister and guide me. 

Even though I had to leave to my country shortly after I met them, we kept in touch every Sunday for a prayer meetings through Skype. 

Only through the Word of God and His son Jesus Christ that I found rest and peace. I learned that I had to forgive and ask for forgiveness. I meditated on the Word of God which is the Only Truth. 

And that's how I started to overcome and let go of all the pain and trauma one by one...

A Bible verse which made a huge impact in my understanding and over coming my past is Ephesians 6:12

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers against the authorities , against the powers of this dark world against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

I had been baptized in water 2 years ago and it is my desire to be used in His service, for His glory alone. 

For the past 3 years that I spent in my country I reconciled with my family and started ministering to them. Through God's grace now my mom is sharing the Word as well!

I thank God for everything... and better days are yet to come, like he promised us in Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
