Abused Woman Finds Herself With a Gun to Head, That's When Jesus Changes Everything
One of the most beautiful truths that exists in our reality is that though we are all broken, dead in our trespasses and sins, the love of Jesus Christ and His sacrificial death on the cross to remove the wrath of God hanging over us can rescue us from any horrific situation we might find ourselves in.
A great example of this truth is the story of Lakeisha. When Lakeisha was eight-years-old her parents divorced and her dad moved out of the house. As she grew older, Lakeisha was starving for a man’s love, which led her to seek the love and affection she should’ve had from her father from other boys, leading to a series of bad decisions.
At the age of 17 she had her first child and started co-habitating with the father, a relationship that quickly turned abusive. As the years rolled by, Lakeisha had three more children and participated in a string of bad, violent, abusive relationships.
But then one day, everything changed.
She was truly lost when one day a woman at her children’s daycare reminded her that Jesus loved her, and she was worthy of love. Not long after, Lakeisha’s relationship spiraled out of control and one evening her boyfriend held a gun to her head, threatening to kill her and himself. Lakeisha prayed ot the Lord to help her.Trending:
And that’s when a knock at the door from the landlord saved her life and gave her a second chance. Lakeisha finally worked up the courage to take her children and leave the abusive situation. She started living her life for Christ and just look at the difference it has made. I’m so glad she’s sharing this inspiring testimony with the world.
What a beautiful story of redemption, amen?
Our God not only rescues us from the power and penalty of our sins — if we place our faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation — but he also adopts us into His family. This means we become his children, and He becomes our father.
Many folks, including Lakeisha, don’t have a good earthly father to look up to, to provide them with love, acceptance and security. However, what they failed to provide, God will give in abundance. He is a good Father who never abuses His children or neglects them. We can rest secure in our Heavenly Father’s arms, knowing that He always cares for us.
