This message will teach you how to change the way you think by the renewing of your mind. God is far more interested in changing your mind than in changing your circumstances. There's a battle for your mind and it's going on every day. Your mind is your greatest asset and satan wants to control your mind.

    This is my personal testimony.
    I used to believe that I was super a strong lady, super smart, capable of taking care of myself, and even though I have always been a believer, my faith in God wasn't as strong as it was in myself.
    Two years ago I had a serious personal problem with my family, without going into details; at that point, my family was my God, they were the reason I live for, in other words, my "EVERYTHING", but due to the issue with them one day they ALL, everybody abandoned me, over the night... I was left without anything and anyone to talk to. Months passed by, on which I couldn't sleep, lost my appetite and also my will to live. I pretended for a while that I was fine cus I was full of pride so I couldn’t admit that this time I wasn’t gonna be able to fix myself…until I couldn't take it any longer.
    One night when the pain was unbearable, and desperation took over me, finally, I realized that I couldn’t keep living that way, so I started planning how to kill myself, I gave some thoughts to the idea because I wanted it to be effective and final, I needed to stop the pain but before I did it I got on my knee, very angry with God, at 3 something am, I screamed to God "IF YOU CARE ABOUT ME, DO SOMETHING BECAUSE I CAN'T DO THIS ANY LONGER!!!, I AM A GOOD PERSON AND YOU KNOW IT!!!
    After this, all I remember comes to me like a flashback, I swear, I don't know how I got back to my bed( my last memory was been in my knee by my bed). Later on( I am not sure how long it passed), in this flashback I opened my eyes for a second and my room was full of extraordinary light, so strong I couldn't keep my eyes open, I was in a fetal position on my bed(I didn't need to see Jesus face because the love and peace that overcame me, that fulfilled my inner being was screaming his presence).
    I woke up at 10:35am as A TOTAL NEW PERSON, I felt like I have lost a heavyweight I was carrying on, I was radiant, hungry, happy, and full of hopes and plans for my life... Jesus saved me! he cleans my spirit from evil desires OVER THE NIGHT! just the way my family forsakes me. I have been wanting to give my testimony for almost 2 years, I guess the Lord decided that today was the day, God is REAL people, He is, and all we have to do is to redeem ourselves to Him and ask for His help, He is waiting for us to do so, this is mentioned in the Bible on Matthew 11:28 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
    We don't have to suffer alone, Jesus died for us, so we can live an abundant and long life.
    To the Lord be the glory!
    God bless you all.
    The Lord put in my heart to start sharing every new thing I learn from His word, and for this reason, I started making videos ad posting them on my YouTube channel.
    While you are on my channel, I invite you to subscribe and watch my humble videos I am sure you will find one that is related to you, let’s keep growing stronger in the word of God.
    God bless you all and thank you for reading this far.
