When I came to Whole Life Ministries, I was broken in so many ways. I had just been divorced from a very emotionally abusive man. I have been abused many times in my life, both physically and mentally, including being molested and raped. I weighed 420 pounds, had high blood pressure, diabetes, and was taking 27 different medications. I am so thankful for Whole Life Ministries and the teachings of Dr. Sandra Kennedy. The Word of God that she brought forth gripped me like no other church I had attended.
Previously, I had been taught against women pastors. I had also never been taught to really worship the Lord and was encouraged to remain silent in church services. Over time, I had to unlearn to false doctrines that I believed. I found that there was no scriptural backing to what I thought I knew. I knew the ways of men rather than the ways of God.
The most important thing I learned was that I could have a relationship with the Lord. I am so blessed to be in a place that puts God first and teaches me to know God personally. I learned that God wants me well. He made a way for me to be healed, both physically and emotionally. Another lesson I learned was forgiveness. I had to forgive others, forgive myself and learn to bury the past. With God’s help, I have now lost over 213 pounds. I no longer have high blood pressure, neuropathy, and need no medication for diabetes. Of the 27 medications I started with, I am now down to 8 medications, 3 of which are vitamins. It would take a book to list all of the emotional scars that God has healed and the memories that He has removed.
It truly matters what we know about the Word of God. God is ready and available to heal our hearts, our bodies and to know us on a personal level. But, if we don’t know the truth, we will not be set free. I encourage you today to find out the truth of what the Bible says. If you are in a church that does not teach the Bible, find another one. God wants you well and free from the wounds of the past. If He did it for me, He will do the same for you!
shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
