Poem: Mercy – Jemilea Wisdom

 

Sinner.
I write it on my forehead with an imaginary marker
My reflection in the mirror
Is the flesh, I the viewer sees
Instead of the master.
Guilt penetrating my emotive senses,
Punishment I feel is necessary for recompenses
Recognition of my sin causes me to burden myself
Cultivating non existent chains to bind and break my spiritual health.

Malnourished,
Starving,
a result of spiritual anorexia
Scriptual bulimia,
undigested truths
I cant stomach,
regurgitated manna, stuck in my tooth.
Cramps, pain,
rampant, aches
Sickly, scrawny and underweight.
I’m so ashamed,
Hide under baggy clothes to escape the gaze
Of the ‘saved’ and ‘sanctified’
I hibernate for days.
Beating myself down for my mistakes.
Remorseful, regretful, repentant

Yet I avoid confession,
Unable to fall on my knees
Ignoring the advocate
Shunning the throne of grace.
I cease
Lost in self pity.

Blinded by disgrace

Yet patiently waiting…
Is his loving embrace
I fight through condemnation
To be comforted by mercy
Saved from damnation,
although I’m unworthy
I rise.
To change.
I rise
to proclaim

GREAT IS HIS MERCY

How can I remain the same?

I rememeber when I first met Jemilea at an Open Mic event. By the way, when I say met her…I mean sitting in the audience and listening to her poem and continuously clicking my fingers (check the link below)….and then thank God for social network, I asked her to feature in the Testimony Blog with her own personal testimony as a poem. *Happy Times*

Anyway, Our God of Mercy.

I just want to encourage people out there, that no matter how messed up you think your life is, no matter how deep in sin you think you are in.. God is a forgiving God, He is a merciful God.

His mercies are new every morning.- Lamentations 3:22-23

All you have to do is cry out to Him: “Lord I cry to You for Your mercy”.

He is waiting for you, always was, always is and always will be.

How comforting is that knowing this, hmm?

Fruitfulness – Winner’s Chapel Testimonies No.2

http://faithnfertility.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/pregnancy.jpg

Miracle Baby After Four Unsuccessful IVF Treatment – Bunmi A

I got married just before my 33rd birthday and got pregnant immediately but had a miscarriage. I was told by the doctors that my body will get rid of the miscarriage naturally. After some time I went to the doctor as I was not feeling well but was told that there was nothing they could do. My monthly period started getting heavier as we started believing God for another baby. We saw the gynaecologist who diagnosed fibroid. Despite two procedures the doctors were undecided whether to remove the fibroid or not. I realised that there was a problem when the professionals were undecided as to how to proceed. I saw another gynaecologist who said I had an infection which blocked one of my tubes. I was told I would get pregnant within a few months with medication. I was then referred for IVF treatment. I had four IVF treatments but none was successful. I was told to look for surrogate mother instead as all medical procedure had been exhausted. My husband was not happy with the idea and we never stopped believing God for the whole period. Pastor David said on a certain Sunday in 2011 and also during the European Winners’ Convention of the same year of fruitfulness was my portion and that someone will become a surprise to the doctors and family members. I had counselling with him in 2012, and was assured that I will be fruitful. I was asked to read the book “I shall not be barren”. I was inspired by the testimonies of other people who had gone through similar challenges and I fasted and prayed. During the 2012 Covenant Day of Fruitfulness, I held on to the word of Pastor David that it is God that gives conception. The following month after the Covenant Day of Supernatural Conception, I was confirmed pregnant. I had my miracle baby after eight years of marriage. Today to the glory of God, my baby is one years old.

Two Children Within 17 Months After a Hole in fallopian tube – Nike A.

This testimony is on behalf of my Winners’ Satellite Fellowship (home cell) member. In 2012, her daughter was told she could not have a baby because of a hole in her fallopian tube. While my friend was praying that the Lord should give her a Word for her daughter, a word came from Pastor David on the pulpit from Isaiah 32:15. It says:

“Until the spirit be poured upon us on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted as a forest.”

My friend keyed into the Word, believing it for her daughter who conceived to the glory of God and had a baby. After that she also said “Amen” to an instruction when Pastor David was praying for those who were believing God for children. Her daughter conceived again, her daughter had two children within 17 months despite all medical report.


God is indeed a faithful God.

I made time to watch a BBC documentary program a while back called “Inside The Human Body: Creation” and from a person who is into Science, all I can say in a nutshell is that it takes GOD and FAITH to be fruitful. Whether you are perfectly healthy or have been tagged with a medical report; to get pregnant is an amazing miracle and we should give thanks to God always and forever by dedicating that child back to God.

https://testimoniesspeak.files.wordpress.com/2014/12/63ad9-image002.jpg

Never forget that it is in God’s will for you to be fruitful:

Genesis 1:28 “…God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it…””

Psalm 127:3 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord. The fruit of the womb is a reward”.

I know this post will touch someone today, I planned weeks before that this will be the week that I will be focusing on fruitfulness. Funnily enough Sunday service (just gone) I heard an AMAZING testimony, I could have waited for my church to transcribe it into writing but waiting will be like delaying and possibly disobeying.

A member of my church took part in outreach and approached a lady to give her a “You’re Special” leaflet. With it, he must have told her God loves her. The lady protested and told him that God has disappointed her, that she has been waiting to have a child for years (22 years to be precise), even keyed into faith by buying babywear, toys etc and yet nothing. The man invited the lady to our church and told her to key into the Word and if in three months nothing has changed, she can leave and go about her way.

One day, the man was approached by the lady and she said “I have been looking for you for a while, anyway, I wanted to give you the good news that I am two months pregnant.”

And this is after 22 years of barrenness.

No matter what the doctor/man has tagged you with, I have a God who can change around your situation.

Financial Blessing – Michael S

https://soulteacher.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/istock_000012913973xsmall.jpg?w=400&h=282&crop=1

At the end of October, I heard a testimony in my church of a couple who had been blessed with money as a gift from someone. The couple had sowed it back into the Kingdom and the blessings the couple received afterwards in regards to their business were of strange acts, the business increased financially. This month (November), I had been blessed by a church member financially. After praising God and thanking Him during the week. On Sunday I went to church expectant that I would receive a Word from God and that investing in the Kingdom of God will surely bless me. So along with my tithe, I took 80% of the blessing I had been given and sowed it as a Kingdom investment. Now as I have been taught, your tithe is obedience to God and opens the heavens. However, it is your offering as your Kingdom investment that brings down your blessings. Let me tell you the last two weeks the Lord has been faithful.

The Wednesday after I had sowed a seed, I received a cheque in the mail. Two days later I then received a letter from the courts saying that I owed them money – which I knew nothing about. As I inquired about it I was told I to ignore the letter and I should expect a cheque in the post. On a Wednesday the week after, I received another cheque in the post – praise Jesus! I thank God and give Him all the glory for being faithful to his word. I say to my fellow brothers and sisters don’t ever give to God begrudgingly, trust in Him to increase you. You should put your faith in Him, He will come through for you even when it seems like there is no hope.

Michael


Money Money Money…

One of the many sensitive topics I think needs to be covered.

So a pastor, priest or a minister mentions the word(s) “offering time”, “prepare your envelope” or mentions the capital “T” for tithe. Some of our brains cells may start to flicker (when my budget is tight, my brain cells attempts star jumps *sigh* – anyway the devil is a liar) .

So yes, our brain cells flickers and may respond in many ways. Thankfully we have the Word to respond to your flesh response.

I want to briefly touch on two “flesh responses” that comes to mind straight away.

One.

  • We’re probably worrying about this bill, that bill, food on the table, new school shoes and therefore giving an offering or paying tithe may make it harder to make ends meet.

The Word’s response to such response is Genesis 7:16:

They came to Noah and to the ship in pairs – everything and anything that had the breath of life in it, male and female of every creature came just as God had commanded Noah. Then God shut the door behind him.

It was only by God’s intervention that Noah had no problem gathering these animals. God took care of that! God took care of the details whilst Noah was doing his part by obeying the Lord by building the ark.

Today, we often do the opposite of Noah. We worry about details we have no control over. Why are we worrying after obeying the Lord after giving our offering? Why are we worrying when we are already told by the Word to Psalm 55:22 (New American Standard Bible).

Cast your burdens upon the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken.

Instead of worrying about the things you cannot control, concentrate on what God has given you to do and leave the rest to God.

OR the second response:

  • We’re probably asking ourselves “why is this pastor/church leader preaching on money again?” Some of us may even attempt to link together “our money” and “Pastors’ flashy cars or Pastors’ lavish lifestyle”.

Such thoughts should be challenged with this question: why should you worry about another man’s sin, when you have you have your own goals in Christ to focus on and achieve?

Our offering and the tithe we give at the end of the day is between ourselves and God. What the pastors, priest or ministers do with it again, is down between them and God.

Pastors, priests and ministers are / should be good spiritual examples to the people; after all they are intermediaries between God and us (Malachi 1:11).

Taking what belongs to God is basically stealing and disrespecting our Almighty Father, our Master. And the Word plainly tells us to “honour our father and mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.” (Exodus 20:12).

On that note, don’t bother looking at the car or lifestyle your pastor, priest and minister may live, you’re there in church to give, to sow and reap your own blessing. Focus on your goal in Christ.

Normally, I have a plan of what I am going to write about after a testimony, but today…I completely went off board lool. Anyway, I would like to end the post on this note though, I think it is important for us to pray that our mind is not of flesh thoughts and quick with “flesh responses” and our hearts are pure with joyfulness, particularly when we present our gifts to the Lord.

https://i2.wp.com/robbcorbett.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/in-a-conflict-between-the-heart-and-the-brain-follow-your-heart.jpg

As you give your offerings and pay tithes, may you not be cut short of your own blessing. In Jesus’ name. (Amen)

I HAD NO FAITH

Faith characterises the Christian journey (at least it should) and there is no other way to please God other than through faith as Hebrew 11:6 highlights.  So when I tell you that my faith reached its lowest point this year, I’m saying that I wasn’t pleasing God neither was I living out my Christianity. Anxiety  much like a raging storm, was throwing my confidence around, slamming me against every wall and laughing at me when I was down. Everyday, fear would beat me down but my wounds were internal making it easier to wear a smile, attend church services and engage in everyday life. However when no one was around, anxiety like a raging storm would fling me around and break me. I was broken and yet I was still placing pressure on myself to fulfil tasks that I had set myself. I was no longer running on faith but on desperation, something I had never experienced before. I was working on overload, chasing after things, needing validation – this is what I told myself; forgetting that faith (in Christ Jesus) is the only thing that validates. I did not even possess the faith of a mustard seed to move mountains. I could barely move pebbles.

I WAS NOT PLEASING GOD

I couldn’t even please myself, let alone God. Life was giving me lemons and I was still drinking water because my focus had shift but then something changed. Eureka moments are something to cherish and I am so grateful for mine. I cannot remember exactly when that light bulb turned on in my mind but I know that Matthew 6:25-34 became my saving grace.

DO NOT WORRY

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I read that passage almost everyday now as I remember that God cares about my needs but at the time I was behaving like one who didn’t know God. I believed in God but did not believe in his power and because hindsight is a beautiful thing I can now say that losing my faith to fear was not worth it.  Fear is the antithesis of faith and where faith morphs you into a warrior, fear cripples you until you become a victim of your own thoughts.  Faith is perfect because it frees your mind.

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:30

There is no need to worry about tomorrow “for tomorrow will worry about itself.” Faith is like that chauffeur that carries you around and tells you to relax (but keep your seatbelt on) as he navigates. You don’t know where he is going (because he likes to surprise you) but you know you will get there and it will be wonderful.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11

Christianity is not a crystal ball that you shake and then find out what your life will look like in five years, if that were the case then we would not have to be dependent on God and it would make sense to lean on our own understanding. If that were the case then Phillippians 4:13 would have no relevance, however God remains relevant and FAITHFUL.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Phillippians 4:13

I once compared faith to insanity (you are probably thinking did this girl really just write this) and I stand by the comparison because it is unnatural to believe in things that we do not see, it goes against our rational thinking. However, God is supernatural and defies our thinking. We do not have to know the whys and the hows but we need to exhibit a faith similar to the centurion, the leper, the paralysed man and the woman with the haemorrhage.

Faith moves mountains. Fear shatters confidence.

Love Cris x

Faith is peace.


“…fear cripples you until you become a victim of your own thoughts.  Faith is perfect because it frees your mind”. *clicks fingers*

Having faith as small a mustard seed can indeed move mountains. It can open doors, give you access to unaccountable blessings and promises from God as well as give you that free mind (peace). Faith is an important thing to have  when considering our relationship with Christ, especially when we talk about forgiveness of sins and how He died on the cross. It is actually a topic that needs to be looked at in depth and a single post won’t do it all. So keep on the look out for more testimonies and the Word for more understanding about faith.

In the meantime I am going to leave you with some beautiful verses and inspirational quotes about faith.

Stay blessed

Past Event: Winners’s Chapel Shiloh 2014: Heaven On Earth

Shiloh 2014 Testimony by Mr & Mrs Princewill

Heard an astonishing testimony yesterday.

A woman in Nigeria was told that she would not be able to hold a child in her womb for more than a month.

Since 2008, she has been waiting to get pregnant.

The year last year was themed “Double Portion” and Bishop David Oyedepo prophesied that “you will receive more than your double portion before Shiloh 2014

After the couple keyed into the Word, read several books including “You Shall Not Be Barren – David O. Oyedepo) – the lady took in.

Ladies and gents…I was confused when I saw this…the lady…not only got pregnant but had QUADRUPLETS!

Testimonies From Past Shiloh

Healed from Six Year Paralysis – Christelle A

I am a Cameroonian, but I live in the USA. Six years ago, I was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer and went through major surgeries, one of which was an abdominal surgery. Later, it degenerated to appendicitis and subsequently, a kidney problem. Since then, I went from one hospital to another, but to no avail. At a point, I became very weak and could not walk. Therefore a wheelchair was recommended. Meanwhile, my mother had to quit her job to cater for me because I couldn’t do anything on my own. In a bid of lasting solution, my family and I came to Nigeria for Shiloh 2013 to have an encounter with the God of Bishop Oyedepo. During one of the night sessions, as the Bishop ministered, I felt a strange power and discovered that I could move my legs. Suddenly, I got off the wheelchair and I was made perfectly whole! I give glory to God. My father “can see clearly now” – Sanjo D My father suffered a partial stroke in 2011 which resulted in partial blindness (he couldn’t see with one eye). He attended Shiloh 2013 in Nigeria and called me the third day of Shiloh and he said, “Sanjo, I didn’t know this church is so big, I can now see the end of the church” Praise God!

Triplets After 20 Years of Waiting

“My husband and I got married 20 years ago as Christians. Since then, we had been believing Go for the fruit of the womb. We went to hospitals to find out what was wrong, and for treatment. After running so many tests the results showed that there was nothing wrog with my husband or me.

The doctors, who could not locate the cause of our barrenness, were all confused. My husband and I did not allow that to worry us, because we have a God that can do all things!

In 2007, my husband and I came to Cannan Land for Shiloh. We came with high expectations. During the service, I made a vow unton God that if should give us the fruit of the womb, we would come back to Cannan Land to give Him the glory.

In November 2010, I got pregnant for the first time in my life! All through the pregnancy period, God’s protective am was upon me and the triplets in the womb. I June 2011, I was delievered of the three triplets – two boys and a girl. We thank God for visiting us in a very strange way!”


Okay, so these testifiers went to Canaan land and then received their miracles. You do not have to go to Nigeria to receive your testimony, your miracle – there are so many more testimonies that people got from watching it online or going to Dartford. Come expected with faith and in Jesus name you will receive your own. See you there, and God bless.

Poem: Sorrow into Joy – Kimberely Noble

When Jesus filled me with the Holy Ghost, he exchanged my sorrow for joy and laughter. For me, that is the biggest thing in my life for which I am most grateful. He has done an abundant more things through every up and down, but what is life without joy? without laughter?
 https://i0.wp.com/emmottontechnology.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/SMILE.jpg

“My testimony is in the words Christ gave me since birth

Transforming my negative mentality into power to exalt His Divinity

And give words worth

I was once trapped in the confines of what I lacked

And really, depressed by my past pretty bad

Sudden heart attack took away my precious dad

And I harbored hatred for a God who would do something like that

I know He is sovereign and can give and snatch

But why take something so precious from a family so fast

Age 5 I cried

And cried

And days passing wished it was me, not dad, who died

I cried until I reached almost age 21

When I will was filled with the Spirit of the Omnipotent One

Who became my Father

He made the void of my past feel like it never started

Retarded my tears with His overwhelming love

I feel His Spirit at times like a tangible hug

I freely receive

And now I bleed different words on the page when I write

​That life becomes more when you walk it out with Christ​”​

​- Poet Noble


D’s Word of encouragement: Your mourning, your suffering, your sorrow…is only temporary. It has already been declared that  the

present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

– Romans 8:18

One thing about your sorrow is that God doesn’t just make them disappear,  in actual fact, He transforms them into joy. Transforms your mourning into dancing. He takes your failures and turns them into success. Remember what he said in Romans 8:28:

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God

This certainly does not mean that all that happens to us is good…no way! Evil is prevalent in our fallen world today but our great God is ABLE, able to turn EVERY circumstance around for our good in the long run…

…to those who love God, those who trust God, not life treasures, they look for security in heaven, not on earth, they learn to accept, not resent pain and persecution because God is with them.

Your sorrow…is only temporary.

Heavenly Bodyguards – Lisette Defoe

Hello again, I hope you are all doing well. October has quickly flown by and I pray you all have had a blessed and productive month.

Before you scroll down to read this week’s testimony, I just want to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported me with the Testimony Blog (please keep them testimonies coming). It is actually only by God’s grace that I am able to post something new each week and it will by His grace that I will be able to continue. As I do so, I pray that at least one post will touch your life.

I am still keeping my ears and eyes open for feedback and suggestions…there are 5 quick tick tick questions that will give me some idea of where to direct this blog.

The link is http://wp.me/p4TnOT-4N

And now a testimony from a featuring blogger Lisette Defoe from Michigan, USA, praise Jesus!

Enjoy.

Last year my daughter and I went out of town. When in a new city, you don’t know the roads like the locals do. I especially tend to get nervous when turning to a one way street at night, going against traffic for example.

 This one time it was during the day and we were leaving the shopping center. I needed to turn right onto the busy road. I somehow assumed there was a hard shoulder between parking lot and the flow of the coming traffic, however there was none. My plan was to pull a bit further out before a complete stop to have a clear view of the oncoming traffic. Well, my car came to full stop before I meant to, I have to say supernaturally, as within seconds a car passed in front of us going at about 40-50 MPH. I just sat there baffled realizing that I would have been in its path and it would have hit my side of the car at that speed. I believe the Holy Spirit stopped my car when I actually planned to pull out a bit more thinking that there was a hard shoulder. I just want to say thank you Jesus for considering my daughter’s and my life precious in Your eyes.

God’s Shield of Protection (Psalm 91)

Psalm 91 is a section of the Bible that displays God’s promises on protection; it covers all kinds of protection, from the fear of terror (Psalm 91:5) to plagues coming near your family (Psalm 91:10)

This testimony in particular lead me to the scripture Psalm 91:11-12

For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

It is actually a unique promise as it involves an additional dimension of our protection.

The words that I am giving you with this testimony today are not only words of encouragement; it is also words of awareness and maybe a reminder to someone out there. From the time we came out of our mother’s womb to now doing our everyday tasks in life, we need to realize that we have been spared from numerous unseen, spiritual battles all because of the intervention of God’s angels on our behalf. Lord have mercy, we need to thank Him.

Any time you feel alone and feel that you are in harm’s way, know that there are heavenly bodyguards, the angels are already there protecting you. I read in one book before, “there are more heavenly bodyguards fighting for you than against you”, and these are the bodyguards getting instructions from God, rendering service to those who will inherit salvation. These are the heavenly bodyguards who are…

mighty in strength…obeying the voice of His Word.

– Psalm 103:20

Let’s just take a breather and think.

And this is just one of many promises, written in one of many chapters, written in one of many books in the Bible. The question is. Do YOU believe?

You might be thinking how can I gain access to this promise in my life? The answer is faith. Faith is what releases this promise to work on our behalf.

Testimony Of My Life – Segun Ajala

My name is Segun Ajala and I would like to appreciate God for what he has been doing and what he will still do in my life and my home,Luke 8:39 – Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee. And he went his way, and published throughout the whole city how great things Jesus had done unto him” I will give two testimonies to the glory of God and to encourage someone reading this!

First Testimony:

I was aiming to travel from Lagos to Ibadan in Nigeria but realised when I got to the bus park I was the last passenger to board. I was so happy a space was reserved for me so I decided to wait outside the bus to relax and get some money until it was ready to set off. To my surprise one woman just came and jumped into the bus in a rush. I was trying to explain to her that the bus is full and I am just waiting to pay while the conductor dealt with another passenger. At that point I just heard the Holy Spirit telling me leave her and join another bus. At first I was reluctant to obey and tried to claim my right but the voice ministered again and I obeyed! Half an hour into the drive we got to a toll gate along the Lagos-Ibadan express road and I saw the original bus that I was supposed to get on tumble leaving all the passengers dead. As I shook in shock it dawned on me that it could have been me laying there.

I want to tell you that is good to obey the Holy Spirit. It is not ALL things you need to need fight for even when you are in the right. Let God speak to you and weigh your actions before doing it, God is still in the business of protecting his own children!

Second Testimony:

I will like to give this second testimony to encourage anyone that has lost hope or has been heartbroken. You will find that person who will value you for YOU!

There was a lady I was introduced to through my female friend and we got on well and later I asked her out. She said no, but I kept trying my best to follow her up and buy things as you sometimes do! There was a time she was out of the country so I sent her an email about my feelings towards her but she replied back with abusive language. My female friend who introduced me to her confirmed to me that her reason for saying no was because she thought I was a ‘nobody’ and not at ‘her level’. OUCH!

A while after I got a visa to travel abroad for a program and after one year eight months I changed my location on Face book and immediately got an inbox message from her. Her questions where ‘who sponsored you abroad? Which school did you say you attend? What course are you doing?’ I sent her all the answers seeing she appeared to have a difference in attitude. However, what I didn’t mention is that her attitude shift was a little too late because it came a month and some days to one of my best days on earth (read on to find out)!

She came to the country I was schooling in and sent me an inbox message and we eventually met up for lunch and chilled. I gave her a copy of my first book I have written and she asked me if am in a relationship. I said I was and asked her the same question but she responded ‘it’s a long story’ (which translates to NO).

As at this time it was one month and some days to my wedding and I brought out the wedding invitation to invite her. She congratulated me and asked me for my wife’s picture, I of course didn’t hesitate to show her my beautiful angel.

So as you can see after a rejection and period of waiting God connected me with my own beautiful wife and that values God in my life. To all singles that may think nothing can come out of life or you can’t get married because someone said no or experience of your past relationships please be encouraged! God is still in the business of giving the best to his children. God sees the future when no one does. There is your own best match God created for you. Just wait upon the Lord and he will connect you and have a godly standard.

Conclusion, I want to appreciate Dami for giving me this opportunity to share my testimony with everyone. I hope it blesses you.
