Personal testimonies from real Christians all over the world.
“When there is just a lot of commotion and the children are being loud, sometimes I almost feel like screaming inside. It can come out that I have a grumpy spirit, because I feel like screaming inside. But I don’t want that. I only want my children to experience happiness. They’re just having fun and there’s nothing wrong with that. I just need to pray.
Sometimes, when things seem like too much, I’ve gone to my room and I’ve prayed. The verse that comes to me the most is 1 Timothy 4:16. ‘Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you.’
The point is not what’s going on around me, but the point is how I take it. I can have an effect on everyone else by just being faithful myself, and I can be a help to them. Another verse that is really good is Isaiah 40:31. ‘But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.’
That gives me tremendous strength. I can have strength like an eagle. It’s that simple. I just need to pray to God.” Lori (Canada) #ActiveChristianity
