Salvation Testimonies

From Gangster To God

Timothy Rau -JESUS CHRIST IS LORD- FREEDOM… July 2, 2008. My testimony of the amazing Grace and Faithfulness of Jesus Christ, His Saving Power, and how my life was changed forever because of His Love. To outsiders I grew up a seemingly normal life, attending Church and being enrolled in Christian private schools from grade school until 7th grade. My life was far from normal though. My family was very dysfunctional. My mom who was battling drug and alcohol addiction left our home and our family behind when I was …

2 Dreams From God and My Salvation

I was raised in a home where my parents are born again, holy spirit filled Christians. I went to church as a child with them ever Sunday, but as most children do, I wouldn’t pay attention to sermons because I found them boring and wanted to play with my friends at church and go to Sunday school. I always believed in Jesus and our heavenly father and I would pray each day, but I never read my bible as all I wanted to do was play as children do. When …

My Rededication To Christ

All my life I have lived in a spiritually rich environment, however, over the past several years I have struggled with my faith more than ever, before finally rededicating myself through the support of my loved ones. Growing up in a Christian family I was taught about God from a young age. I went to church each Sunday, went to Christian elementary schools, and at the age of seven I was saved and dedicated my life to Christ. This made me not only to try to be good but also …

Unfaltering Faith

I was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy when I was born.  If you are not familiar with MD, it is a neuromuscular disease that affects muscles causing weakness (mostly the legs.) I am 21 years old and still walking while most patients are in wheelchairs as early as age nine. In extreme cases, some children do not live past their twenties. I just wanted to share some of my life struggle to show people that God is real. I know what it is like to feel like God does not …

I Was Distracted with Worldly Things

I was born in 1967 and I was raised in a much different culture than today. I remember both of my parents worked hard and we would appreciate an occasional stop at a fast food place. My parents worked hard as Dad bought a 40 acre farm when I was younger. He learned to farm, work full time at a factory, and coach sports when my brother and I got old enough to play. Mom was a Christian and I never fully understood what it meant up until a few …

We Need to Be Like a Rooster

I have sat and reflect on different things work, kids, marriage, friends, church, God!!! Yes God and even church! Just really life in general where I been, where I am, and where I’m going. Wait!!! Where am I going? Will I go to heaven or Hell? I probably wouldn’t have even thought that far into it if someone wouldn’t have said to me, ”if you slipped out of this world where are you going to go?” Wow! what a question to ponder! Who really wants to think about that! Why …

Mikiyas’ Story

Peace be upon all the readers of my life history and endless thanks to the Almighty God who helped me to pass all those difficult times. Now those bad days are gone, gone forever, never to come back. Glory to God. It was before 25 years ago that I was born in Addis Ababa from my mother named Roman and a father whom I don’t know. My mother did not seem to be happy to have a son without a marriage. So she put me in her father’s house and …

God Is Love

I want to start by addressing all those who are reading this and are experiencing great anxiety, depression and suffering in their lives, and who also feel like they are loved by no one.  God loves you so immensely it’s unfathomable. No person can love you as much as God loves you. He wants you to turn to Him with your sorrows. He wants to save you and make you whole again. I want to tell you how He did this to me and how I came to know His …

For Your Bleeding Heart

This testimony is for your bleeding heart. This is a true story. You see, I too was angry with God because I couldn’t seem to find God when I needed him. I studied the word and prayed as well but I always had such a hard time getting the things that the average person could get with no problems. I felt like my prayers were not alleviating anything at all. I knew there was a God. In the same sense, I knew there was a devil. What I couldn’t understand …

Limited Love vs Endless Love

Excuse my english everyone, lol. Although I didn’t grow up in a religious home, I knew I believed in God. Even though I didn’t practice Christianity and didn’t belong to a church, I knew that I believed in God. My belief in God gave me confidence and courage to do many things, good and bad. I would do risky things and put myself in somewhat dangerous situation then convince myself that God “wouldn’t allow me to die like this”. Now that I look back, it was very twisted on my part. …
