My Return to Christ

In January 2016, my husband of six months beat me up pretty badly, told me I was useless and wanted a divorce. He threw me outside and left me to freeze until he wanted me to come back (several hours later). I knew at this point that it was over, I had already forgiven infidelities, plural.

This was time to let go and I spiraled into a depression yet again. God began placing people in my life that inevitably brought me back to the path of seeking God first. It was little things at first, coworkers and customers who made me feel valued in a way I had not felt in over 10 years.

A childhood friend (who was forced to go to church with me and my sisters when we were young), began attending the gym I worked at and she and I reconnected. She had found her way back to Christ and was married to a God loving/fearing man. She invited me to events, and shared scripture with me.

One day my depression won, I had given up. I wrote my grandpa a good bye email. Explaining how there was no purpose for me in this life, I was now divorced, over 30 and I couldn’t have kids (another major struggle). My ex-husband was running around still being unfaithful, while begging me to come back, telling me how no one else could ever love me, reminding me that when I battled my tumor and health issues that no one loved me enough to be there for me. I was hopeless. I was in the bathtub, crying, looking at my phone, mostly the photos of people I loved who didn’t love me back. I got a friend request on social media from a friend who had not shown up for my wedding, he was one of my close friends and I felt abandoned so we just stopped talking. All I could think was “oh wow! We haven’t talked in forever.” I got out of the bath, completely forgetting that I had made plans to be done with life.

He sent me a link to a bible study app. Two old friends of mine who had never met each other put me back on the path to God. These two people lit the path for me to return where I belong, as God’s childHis Princess.

God is Love

That’s the bottom line here. God is Love. We are all blessed to be God’s children and receive salvation through the sacrifice of His son Chris, Jesus!

All the best,

  1. Chrissy. I loved! your story of being rescued by people through God’s amazing! love by way of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. You have encouraged! me greatly for my wife and I have been separated for 7 months and I’m holding on through God’s strength and hope in Him for reconciliation. Even though she gave me her rings back 3 weeks ago. My actions led to the reasons we’re separated. We’re both Christians and I feel like we were robbed by the enemy into this lonely place now. We’re a blended family with 5 kids & 6 grandkids. So that is my weakness to overcome. Knowing that I’ve let down God first. Then my wife. But then too all of the family. We were married 9 yrs this June. She is no doubt! the love of my life! In similarities to yours. My wife asked me to seek counsel through a friend of her bosses whom mentors men at his church. He lives in Montana so by way of phone conversations the past 5 months he has spoken an encouraging! Godly word into me. Then one of my coworkers and his wife have been letting me sit with them in church and I’ve recently also joined their bible study small group. Two men who have never met each other have been used by God to help bring me out of despair and back to also realizing my worth as God’s child even in my current position of separation. God bless you! sister for having the courage to share your story of rescue with us who are blessed! by it. Larry in Florida
