God Still Saves!

My Testimony

After having been raised a Christian and drifting away from my faith in 2016 due to influence, I had to rededicate my entire life to the Lord. In 2022 I gave my life to Christ Jesus as an adult and got baptized for the second time. This time was different though. It was different because this time around I made a conscious choice to do so. Since giving my life to Christ and getting baptized my life has never been the same. I can now confidently say I know the Father, and I trust Him to lead every step forward. He has shown me that despite the flaws of His children, He still saves.

Unfortunately, life has not always been the way it is today. I was led into new-age spirituality by an ex-boyfriend and outside influences at 20. Eventually, I lost my zeal for Christ and slowly felt His presence leave me. On the other hand, I was manifesting the material things I wanted, traveling the world and living in what I thought was freedom at the time. I started to lose my faith in Jesus completely and seek the approval/validation of man. There was a season when I went from studying bible verses to diligently studying new-age spirituality and astrology. The world of pagan beliefs became attractive to me because it meant instead of waiting on God I could manifest, my deepest desires overnight. What they do not tell you is that when you get things quickly and easily, you also lose them quickly and easily. My life took a 360-degree turn from church every Sunday faithfully and believing God was my lord and savior, to watching my mother die from stage four breast cancer and completely denouncing Christ without awareness that I had done it. I felt hurt, abandoned, and forgotten by God.

You see, the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10) Sometimes what he steals is your discernment, what he kills is your faith, and what he destroys is your perception of God’s love. He manipulates you in your weakest moments to think that the grass is greener in hell than it is in the Garden of Eden. In the bible, it states, “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” (1 Peter 5:7-9) This verse taught me that it did not matter how “Christian” I was in the past. My lack of trust in God paired with the enemy’s influence, gave room for the enemy to come in and destroy what only God had the power to build up. No one had taught me that lukewarm beliefs rooted in grieving the loss of my mother would lead to full-blown unbelief. No one warned me about how the devil comes as an angel of light. No one had taught me that without God’s covering, I would be vulnerable to many life-changing attacks. But… God still saved me.

If it were not for God’s grace, the devil’s plot over my life would have left me dead. The statistics of being a single mother, having mental health issues, low income, being an orphan, verbal abuse, and being a recipient of domestic violence would have kept me bound. God’s grace ensured that despite my fall, He is a God that can turn everything for my good. I write this as a testimony to tell you this one message. God still saves. He saved before, he saves now, and he will do it again. So do not grow weary in good doing, and do not lose faith in those who you have prayed for. God is still in the business of saving.

I am 28 years old now, and God has healed me from the death of my parents due to terminal disease. He brought me out of a long-term abusive relationship with a narcissistic man parading as a man of God. He saved me from domestic abuse and protected me through every blow. He carried me from a discouraged single mother to a wise young woman on fire for Christ! He brought me from homeless to healed, and from broken to breakthrough. What more can the God who still saves do for you? It was not easy, and I will not lie to you and say it gets easier. I will say that with God, my yoke is easy and my burdens are light because He saves me from carrying life alone. I had to die to my flesh and am still shedding dead layers as you read these words. Overall, God still saved me. Not because I am perfect, or because I am more important, but because He is still in the business of saving lost souls.

GOD STILL SAVES!!! Psalm 116:8

For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling
