The Living, Powerful Word of God
I got born again in March 23rd, 2001. It all began when I lost my mum and as the first child in the family, all my siblings challenges were always on me as they look up to me.
As it was, those situations were overwhelming and it seems as though there is no way out.
As a result of no solution forth coming to these challenges, I decided to take my own life.
But thanks be to God who ordered a man’s step towards my way who shared the word of God with me in those periods I was anticipating suicide. He specifically shared Heb.
4:12 which states that “the word of God is living and sharper than any two edged sword…” this was what turned my whole life around, I found an unexplainable meaning in those words, I found assurance and succor in those words, and at that moment, I found my life worth living.
Glory be to God, divine intervention came and all the challenges came fading away.
All my siblings are born again and doing great. I am presently living my life for the Lord, bringing many sons to righteousness.
Also, I am an Outreach Coordinator in my local church, and life is ever brighter with the love of my Lord.
