Praise the Lord, I’m happy to write this testimony today, I thought I would write one but every time as I got online Satan would tempt me to quit it or make me feel lazy but today, I kept it in my prayers to Jesus to give me the strength to fight against the Satan and write my testimony in glory of Jesus Christ.
Well, I’m from India, 22 years old, was born in a Hindu family, you know Hindus worship many idols like 1000’s of them, earlier as a child I used to worship them like my parents did, I would bow down before them and pray to brings blessings to my family but I was never really satisfied but I didn’t really care, as a teen my life was not to good, I used to be shy and didn’t have any friends coz of my shyness and I was kind of dumb lol since I didn’t have any friend I could rely on, I felt depressed and many a times thought of suicide, even thought of running away from home but never dared to do so, thank God.
As I grew up, I found life more depressing and I just felt like life was useless, I would cry bitterly at night to sleep and I had lost my self-confidence also those so-called Indian God’s 1000 of them never supported me, I was not satisfied with worshipping them so one day I got highly annoyed, yelled at those idols and became an atheist and was proud to be one, lol and became more egoist.
Well, when I reached 17, my life was just the same, I remember one day I saw Jesus’ picture on a newspaper, and it just attracted me towards it. I couldn’t resist to keep looking at the pic. I then cut it off and stuck it under my wardrobe so that my parents wouldn’t see it. I used to like talk to the picture. I knew he was Jesus, but I felt pleasure on taking him as my father coz I was not really close to my earthly father and we would hardly even talk. I was deprived of the fatherly love, though he helped me financially. But we didn’t share that special bond like father daughter love, so I was hungry of that love which I was seeking in Jesus. I looked at his pic and asked him to bless me with a friend, with whom I would feel comfortable and someone I can relate to or even get married to him, lol. I actually wanted a male friend to feel complete.
I prayed with less hope… months later, I found one such guy, a Christian and he had all the qualities I wanted in my man. We became best friends and he stood by me always. He was my world, my life my everything. I was so occupied with him that I completely forgot about Jesus, and I would just spend time with him alone and nothing else mattered to me. Eventually, he became my boyfriend. I knew this was to happen coz we really loved each other.
At 18, I finished high school and joined college of Engineering, there I met a Christian girl named Priya, who became my 2nd best friend. We shared lot of things in common and we were famous in college for our friendship. She was a devoted Christian, always talking about Jesus. And through her I got to know and understand so much about Jesus Christ that it brought tears in my eyes thinking how he died for us. I started to believe on it and felt love growing for Jesus, but I never really bothered to pray. Rather, I loved spending time with my bf. Time went on. 4 years and I was very happy to be with my two best friends, both Christian.
One thing fascinated me that ever since I reached 18, whatever I had desired for in my life came into reality. Everything I wanted, I received. I wanted admission in this prestigious college, and I knew it was hard to get in coz of my low %, but I got in. I wanted my parents to shift in Pune (city I love the most in India) my father for transferred to Pune within a year. I then wanted my father to buy a house in Pune and live there forever. They bought a house even when they had not planned to settle down in Pune. After my graduation I wanted my classmate and of course my best friend Priya to come over to Pune and live with me. Guess what, she is coming to Pune next month as her job got placed in Pune. So likewise, many things happened just as I wished, and I thought to myself maybe I was very lucky, lol. I felt like the happiest person on earth and started building plans for my marriage with my bf in future.
Everything went well for 5 years until 18th June 2010. One night I fought with my bf on a petty issue. The next day he had to leave for Australia. After that, we lost all contact with each other, absolutely no contact, no email no phone no messages nothing. I began to feel lonely inside. I would just cry and cry all day and night long.
One night I opened my bible which Priya gifted to me on my 21st birthday. I never really touched it before until that night. I opened it I prayed to Jesus crying out bitterly telling him I felt great injustice and I needed answer. I used to pray and ask Jesus to answer me thru the bible. He kept doing so I didn’t fully understand the scriptures, but slowly I began to get some ideas and each day I learned something new. I began to meditate on his words and understood how he answered my prayers. It was like Jesus talked to me directly through the bible. I understood every word he said in it, and he said it was his plan to set us apart (me and my bf). He brought him into my life, but we did nothing to bring glory to Jesus. His temple (us), lay in ruins so he scattered us, but he has promised a new life, and would fill us with his Spirit. He would sprinkle clean water on us. He would change our stubborn heart of stone and give us an obedient heart and make us follow and obey his commandments and then he would bring us back together and we would be able to rebuild the ruins.
One day I cried out so much as I missed my bf. Then suddenly I began to say GOD MAY YOUR WILL BE DONE IN MY LIFE (I was afraid of saying that before coz I used to feel his will would contradict mine), but this time I was like begging God to do his will alone, don’t know what prompt me to do so. I felt like my soul was crying to God and just then I felt the touch of the Holy Spirit for the first time in my life. My whole body shivered. I felt immense pleasure. I started to laugh and smiled. I was amazed to feel this sudden change, didn’t know what was happening. I smiled laughed and shivered at the same time. It continued for 2 mins.
Wow, something unusual, I just loved that feeling, cannot describe it in words. This is how I came closer to God and learned to obey his commandments, just love everything that he teaches me each day. Through my prayers I even found that whatever was happening in my life, just as I desired was because of Jesus Christ. He fulfilled all my desires, and I cannot stop thanking him for all that. He taught me to forgive others, to love everyone as equal.
God also revealed that he chose me to serve him. I’m a servant of God and that through me he is going to bring light to the nation. He has promised me the Holy Spirit anointing and many more things, which I got revealed through a sister filled with the Holy Spirit. Jesus talked and showed her visions about me, and I got the same messages from the bible. So, it was confirmed. No wonder why I am the only Christian in my whole family generation. Praise the Lord.
So, it’s been like 4 months since I became a born again and I love Jesus Christ as my heavenly father. I feel complete and content and full of confidence for I have God with me.
I will share one more powerful testimony with you that happened to me about 4 days ago. It was Sunday, Sabbath day. I keep fast on Sundays and pray as often as I can, so Sundays are really special to me. So I sat to pray. It was around 4am. I was so eager to surrender myself to God and make me bring glory to him. I surrendered myself to God and waited for his answer.
Then I heard children playing and making noise outside. It disturbed me so I prayed to Jesus to make them play elsewhere so I can pray. Just then, within 5 mins it started raining heavily outside. How could it rain all of a sudden on a sunny day?
But I felt immense joy in my heart, my soul was happy rejoicing as if Jesus had sent that rain for me. All children went home coz of raining and I looked outside the window and my soul was crying happily. I couldn’t resist and said,
Just then, I saw hail falling from the sky. My soul was happy even more. I was full of tears, set down in my knees thanking God for answering my prayers. I asked God, if this rain is for me as an answer to my prayer, please mention the word cloud as I open my bible. I opened my bible and guess what it mentioned. CLOUD, RAIN AND HAIL!!!!!!!
I couldn’t believe it. God talked to me!!!!! One last time I said, God if it is really, you then please respond to me right now and just then I heard loud thunder noise of clouds. HE TALKED TO ME!!!! Jesus talked to me, I shared it with a sister blessing with the Holy Spirit and as I was telling her about it, she saw a vision of Jesus pouring down rain. What a miracle it was. Praise the Lord, Amen!
Thanks for sharing.
I trust God will use you in mighty ways.
Thank you for your testimony, L. You are in my prayer.
What a great testimony! I read it, as you asked. 🙂
Just an amazing miracle… and I’m glad you have received the Holy Spirit.
God bless you.
I really enjoyed reading this. Thanks for sharing, God Bless
Loved the testimony I’m sure God will continue to use you and I encourge you to share that with everyone you meet.
– GOD BLESS
Its really encouraging to hear your testimony.
Praise God for he is The Rock Our Salvation.
Keep putting him first in your life and he will give first priority to his children.
Thanks for sharing sister.
ur sister in christ/ Reneephal.
Your Testimonies are wonderful and God, I believe works with those who have faith in Christ Jesus, but your mention of the sabbath being Sunday is completely wrong as God’s sabbath falls on a Saturday. When we keep Sunday as the sabbath we are not keeping the Sabbath as ordained in the scriptures. There are scriptures and other historical information to back what I am saying.
Have a wonderful day.
Praise god I love this Jesus he is so good he is great.
I really really REALLY ENJOYED READING YOUR TESTIMONY! We serve such an amazing God! Yes we do! I pray that God coninues to Bless you, continues to stir up the gifts that he has placed in you, In Jesus Name. It’s an honor to be Chosen by God, yes it is. God Bless you Sister in Christ Jesus.
Praise the Lord,
Dear friends, thank you for reading my testimony, your all in my prayers, i thank Jesus for letting him known to you through me, its been months since i posted this testimony and 7 months since i got saved and telling you im enjoying every moment i spend with my God, one important thing he taught me that we must never look up to any human being for answers but follow God alone, i used to get disturbed by different opinions of different people about Christ i would listen to them all but instead of drawing closer to God i was going away from him so i submitted myself to God and told him i would never listen to any godly person but listen to God alone i feel like the peace love and joy in focusing on Christ alone.
Im weak, i lack wisdom, i am persecuted at times by my family, im a sinner but above all im happy and peaceful for i know Jesus knows me better than i know myself and he knows all my needs, oh i love him so much, JESUS i love you i love you and i love you forever and for always, my life has never been so peaceful tension free before, thank you for the quality life you have given me, thankyou for the shelter n your arms abba, i love you
The Word of God says “Let the weak say I am strong.” Once you accepted Christ as your personal Savior, you are no longer a sinner. You are a born again believer, a new creature in Christ Jesus. Remember that you must say what God says about you! The Bible says that “if any man lack wisdom, let him ask.” “The power of life and death is in the tongue.” Your words create life.
excuse me for all the spelling and grammatical mistakes haha i was so excited that i cared less about it lol
Latu 🙂 Jesus bless u beta:):)
U HAVE HONORED JESUS AND HE IS GONNA HONOR U IN WAYS U CANNOT SEE:)
Keep rocking for Jesus:)
WHAT AN AWESOME GOD WE SERVE 🙂 🙂 🙂
MY DEAR SIS. IN CHRIST
GREETINGS TO U IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.MIGHTY AWESOME GOD JESUS CHRIST BLESS U RICH WITH HIS GRACE, LOVE,PEACE &PROSPERITY AND PROGRESS.
Praise the Lord! A really living testimony. Love you Jesus.
And i assume you and your bf are together now.Bless you both.
I am happy that you found the way to share your testimony with so many and what a wonderful testimony it is. You and I are common sisters in Christ as we share His amazing spirit, as we all do who Christ came to save. I am an American that lives in Costa Rica and have experienced the Lords answers to some prayers just as you have. He shows us amazing things in His Word and everywhere on the earth if we are looking. Like you, I have not had a “father” but we both now have the most wonderful, gracious Father in Heaven who loves us dearly and will teach us as any good Father does to the children He loves. The Bible says there is joy in heaven whenever someone comes to the Lord – there is also joy on the earth to the believers that are here as well!!!! PRAISE GOD AND THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
I’m Hindu and just got saved on July 3rd 2010 in Toronto, Canada by the Grace of God.
I got filled with holy spirit 3 months after I got saved and enjoying & growing in Christ every moment. The peace and joy I got inside that I can not trade with even Billion dollars. If you send me your email address, I can send my detail testimony.
I am really very amazed by your testimony. My faith is growing stronger and I will also dedicate my sundays to fast for Jesus. Oh thank our living God.
Jesus bless you so much my sister, your his precious child, daddy loves you and takes delight in you 🙂
WOW! speechless… im pretty sure that who ever meets you is glad you chose this path especially God 😀 and website too lol.. Wait do you still talk to the guy now.?
No the Lord has not yet prepared me to meet him, God is making me a modest virtuous woman at heart and also a noble wife, he will not bring him back only to dig out my past, he is still healing me, once its all done he will bring it to pass according to his will, for now my only greatest desire is to obey him and serve wholeheartedly, he is preparing me for a great life ahead.
Though i get dreams about him around 15 times in a year time which sends me confirmation that the Lord is preparing him as well.
God bless you, believe in him and trust him always for he will never disappoint his children.
It is very touching and gives me great joy to read the
testimonies of many new brothers and sisters in Christ.
I was born and brought up in a Christian family, gave my life to Christ when I was 10 years old. While
attending college in India more than 50 years back, I used to distribite gospel tracts and gospel portions to my friends, and they used to call me “preacher”.
To know the LIVING JESUS as our Lord is the greatest
decision of life. My brothers and sisters, all of you must write your testimonies in many publications through
internet which will reach thousands of people around the world. When the former Hindus give their testimonies, it will attract the Hindus; likewise when the former Muslims give testimonies, it will attract
the Muslims. ONLY JESUS CAN GIVE US PEACE AND JOY IN
LIFE, AND WE MUST SHARE THAT PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH OTHERS SO THAT THEY ALSO CAN ENJOY THE SAME PEACE AND JOY AS WE ENJOY. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
CHRISTIANMESSENGER.IN ETC ARE SOME OF THE PUBLICATIONS YOU CAN GIVE THE TESTIMONY.
All by the Grace of God, im totally healed now, absolutely healed from any bondage any wound, im excellent of soul now and oh the perfect peace in my heart because i trust the Lord, he has never failed me till now, miracles after miracles, i ask Lord why why are you so mindful of me that you answer my every prayer with much more blessings added to it, im like amazed at Him each day, THANKYOU JESUS, I LOVE YOUUUUUUUU for this pure and marvelous journey in you woohooooooo!!!!!
Your testimony gave me hope..I am going through real difficult time specially my love life..I pray everyday in the hope that god will answer my prayers one day..may his will be done in my life.
My precious frnd in Jesus, You are chosen… Gods word says Before I formed you in your mother’s womb I knew you. What a sweet story! Jesus is so loving, What an amazing God we serve and He loves us beyond measure. You are so blessed Esther and you are a big blessing in my life. Thank you so mch for ur encouraging words each time we speak.
This world is really missing this beautiful experience of love so pure n divine from our heavenly Father. I wish many ppl get to read this and I wish they repent and turn to Him before its too late.

Hello Praise the Lord, greeting to all my friends in the name of my precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Here I am once again to tell you the amazing miracles of Christ in my faith journey.
This year 2013, being the year of Lords favor, God finally revealed to me through a prophet of God after waiting for 3 years on his promise for my marriage, that he is coming and his coming is very soon, most favorably this year.
My family is on the verge of receiving salvation, all my prayers being answered by after another, Lord gifted me with prophecy gift, FAITH, Hope and encouragement, this 3 yrs journey of my faith walk has been pleasant.Full of Peace and Prosperity in every area of my life, perfectly amazing, im speechless at his works.
So finally my desire is coming to pass, which is to meet my desirable man, the person i i mentioned in my testimony, my very best friend, he is coming back this year, God gave me assurance with the prophecies he made through prophets this year and with the heavenly silver golden dust falling on a bible verse which holds the promise of my man’s coming.
Truly, God speaks amazingly about his Will, one night i drew a HEART on a paper and to my amazement i saw all colorful heavenly dust(pink blue silver golden,green, orange) falling on this little paper making is shinny as if revealing Gods Will again and again, my eyes were wide open seeing this miracle happening right before my eyes and then with time and Gods Grace i got used to this blessed gift as well.
So God will fill you with many gifts and immeasurable Holy Spirit as you go in real FAITH seeing you desires getting fulfilled one by one.
I will write more, mainly on my marriage which is to happen this year with the same man, according to Gods Word.
Finally my dream is on fulfillment 🙂
With God, all things are possible, just follow the desire of your heart according to Lords Will and He shall bring it to pass, His timing is always perfect and Beautiful,im getting my faith answered after 3 yrs but it was amazingly wonderful pleasant journey bringing transformation in families friends and relatives. Gods work is not on one soul but on his whole family, his descendants his generations get saved with one mans faith.
Hi, I going through same thing.. can you share your ID so that I can contact you? God bless you! Your testimony gave me HOPE! ?
Did you and your partner reunite and get married?
I need some Christian encouragement/advice. Please contact me. My heart it broken.
Praise the Lord, Am an Indian, In my life time I never proposed anyone. I was hurt when someone rejected just because I was jobless, he promised to marry me, I didn’t even realized that I had fallen in love with him, within a time span.
I was heart broken and shattered, unable to believe that this happened to me, From that day I started praying with broken heart, in believe that Jesus will hear my tearful prayer and answers me, I did 40 days half night prayers and 40 days fasting prayer for my future Husband as I want God will to be done, on last day of 40 days fast, God spoke to me with verse:
It’s been a year still am unable to forget him, and nothing change in my life, sometimes i really wonder, Is God listening to my prayers? And when will he remove these dark clouds and fill my heart with happiness for his Glory?
No one can comfort me expect Almighty. Just waiting for his miracles.
Hello Richa I can understand what you are going through. Just trust in the lord and surrender everything at his feet. God loves you and his love is unfailing and unconditional love.
Greetings…I am so blessed after reading your wonderful testimony. What an awesome God we have. Yes we are not serving the dead God. We are serving the true and living God.Amen..praise the Lord
