An Amazing Journey with My Heavenly Father
When I was a young adult, I had so many questions about life and the direction I needed to go as an adult. One evening I was working at my part-time job, and a young man came in and said to me, “How would you like a purpose for doing the things you do and to have direction in life?” He had me hooked. I took The Way Ministry’s Foundational Class almost forty-five years ago, and that was the beginning of an amazing journey with my heavenly Father. I had clear direction for my life, and I knew my purpose in life.
Since that time, I have had many victories because of the Word of God I have been taught. I learned to believe and trust God and have no fear, no doubt, no worry. When I was faced with a serious health situation that could have potentially been fatal, I steeled my mind and claimed that by the stripes of Jesus Christ I was healed. My healing was so rapid that even family had no idea how sick I really was. That’s victorious living. Before I took the Foundational Class, I had no idea that God’s desire was health and prosperity.
I can truly say that each day I have so many blessings to be thankful for. To know that I can have a true and vital relationship with the Author of all life is awe inspiring. To enjoy God’s peace, His mercy, and His grace on a daily basis is beyond words. I walk down the street each day with my head held high because I know who I am in Christ and that I am a son of God with all power. What a victory!
I Looked to God’s Word for Strength
I am a French-speaking college student originally from Africa. My goal is to become a nurse. In order to achieve this goal, it is required that I take several very difficult biology courses. After passing the first biology course, I was enrolled in Biology II. I faithfully attended lectures, but I really struggled. First of all, I really couldn’t understand what the teacher was saying. No matter how hard I tried to learn, I could not focus, and I became more and more distracted. I was very discouraged, and I felt like my brain was frozen. As a result, I was failing the class. At first, I panicked, but then I chose to do what I had learned as a follower of The Way: claim a promise found in God’s wonderful Word that would bring victory. As I looked to God’s Word for strength, it was Psalms 147:5 that really hit home for me. It states, “Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.” I told myself this verse over and over. In this very challenging situation, God’s Word warmed my heart and melted my frozen brain! I did pass the class, and I know it was not by my own doing, but by God Who brought me a sweet victory.
