29 Aug My name is Iva P. , 26y.
My family is all Muslims and three years ago I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. There came a moment in my life where I had to decide whether to marry my fiancée who was also a Muslim, or to leave everything behind and begin a new life in Christ. I chose God because I believe that He is eternal and blesses according His heavenly treasures for the sake of His glory. I left my home, my family, my job, and everything else that tied me back to my old life. Within me, I began to experience turmoil. I felt scared, stressed, and abandoned as my family blamed everything on me. My fears consumed all my peace and I couldn’t eat, sleep, or work. I prayed constantly and searched for an answer. I was so angry with all my close ones, who disagreed with and rejected me for my decision to turn my heart to Jesus. I did not have support from anyone except from God. I cried constantly, feeling weak and powerless.Then I reached out to Petya because I did not have enough understanding of how pull myself out of this inner turmoil. I needed to speak with a person who had a stronger understanding of God, His way, and would help me on His path. I began taking sessions to become free of fear, anger, the feeling of abandonment and rejection, and I began to forgive everyone who had hurt me. Things began to change right away. The feelings, thoughts, dreams and the shaking which had all been blocking the current of life from flowing through me began to leave me. The prayers restored my mind and soul. I stopped feeling alone, and began to feel the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. The cleansing that came after each prayer made more and more room for the Holy Spirit to operate in my life. After each session I felt a joy I had never felt before – like a fulfilled long-awaited prize. The pain from my soul was thrown out like a bag full of trash. The one and only thing I felt within me anymore was love, even for those who had hurt me. I was able to see them without even wincing, like nothing had ever happened. In three weeks I had to live in three different places until God blessed me with my very own apartment, favor at my job, and fresh connections with new people who help me through every situation. This all happened within 3-4 weeks – it was a complete transformation! I used to have dreams about the people who hurt me every night. After we prayed about it and I was freed, that same night I slept peacefully embraced in the protection of God’s love. God showed up and continues to show up in every situation, more powerful than any obstacle, or human limitation. He shows his provision for all who love and obey Him. read more»read less
