My Testimony – Turning fear into faith

eileen

Before I came to know God, I used to be a very shy person with low self-esteem. To me, my greatest fear in life is to socialize with people whom I am not close with and I never had the confidence to look into people’s eyes while talking to them. I was also brought up in a family where love was not much shown. A simple hug was never expressed in my family.

But in the year 2004, my life was never the same when I joined City Harvest Church and commit myself to love God. Ever since then, my life took a 180-degree change.

From someone who is shy and timid, I became someone who is much bolder now. Giving presentation in front of a class of 100 people was no longer difficult for me. Knowing that I have God in my life, I am no longer afraid to step forward and move towards the dreams and purpose God has placed in my life. I was never afraid to reach out to the lost. It is a passion and desire that God has placed in my heart ever since I was 12 years old. Because of God, I was bold enough to reach out to many of my classmates, student leader or even friends whom I may not know. Many came and some of them are still currently in church right now. Praise God!

From someone who is not financially rich, God bring forth many job opportunities for me. There was a period when my family wasn’t doing financially well. We were struggling to pay off many bank credit debts in order to sustain our whole family. Due to the huge debts, we sold our 5-room flat and move to a 2-room rented flat. I remember clearly that was the period when I graduated from Secondary school and I was only 17 years old. To meet my family financial situation, I took up part-time job to work as a sales person. Back then; the pay was only $5 per hour.

I kept praying and believing that God will do a miracle in my life. Bible says that, “You may be poor today, but you will not be poor for the rest of your life.” I strongly believe that as I began to give tithing, offering, building fund and the lives of other people, God will bring forth the breakthrough for my life.

Indeed, God is the same yesterday, today and forever. After I give into the building fund, I keep confessing  I will be able to earn at least $1000 per month even though I was still studying at the time. God did exceedingly and abundantly above what I could ask for. Many tuition jobs kept coming even though I did not spend much effort looking for it. From $5 per hour, I am earning an average of $35 per hour now. For that year, I earn more than $1700 per month.

God really show himself very real in my life, many times in my Christian walk, my faith was shaken. However, every single time, God never fail to lift me up. He shows me that the angels of God are protecting over my life. Recently, just when I was about to give up on God, the next day, He touched me with the power of the Holy Spirit. From then on, my life was never the same again. I could feel the spirit of Unforgiveness, spirit of condemnation, spirit of pride and many others weaknesses leave. Right now, I am even more sensitive to the Holy Spirit, and I could feel myself going up to another level of breakthrough. The presence and anointing of God becomes so much stronger in my life.  Indeed, God will never forsake you; He will always be there for you. When you are at your weakest, that is when God will show himself so strong in your life.

As I continue in this walk with God, I believe greater things have yet to come. I believe for a greater destiny that God has placed in my life. Thank you God for constantly molding my character to make me who I am today.
