Free at Last – Story of an Indigenous Australian

When I was a kid going to church was a very fun even for me because I love dancing and singing, but I didn’t really know who Jesus and God was. But I still continued to go church.

In 2004 I went to a Christian Boarding School in Darwin. As a young teenager in school there was a lot of trouble and hate I had faced but that didn’t stop me from going school because education was important to me and my family.

Then in 2007 I started hating my houseparents who was only trying to help me, but I didn’t want to listen to them because at that time my dad went for a surgery and they had to operate on his heart. I was drowning in my sorrow and I felt like telling no one,

But little did I know that God was watching over me and my family. So in 2009 when I was 17 years old I started doing drugs and drinking all sorts of beer. It was fun and it brought pain at the same time, Then I realised by doing that it was slowing me down from my studies and I was tired all the time.

But I didn’t pay attention to what was really happen in my spiritual life. As I look back, I was living in complete darkness, Then 2009 I got married and in 2010 had one child. After my daughter was born, I turned back to drinking and it had gotten worse. My husband and I were always fighting –  then It was me and my mum fighting.

Then emptiness and fear was starting to build up inside me. I felt like the devil was always watching my every move. In July 07, 2011 my great grandfather passed away. Two days before his funeral there was a big fellowship and lots of people was there, and they were asking if anyone needed prayer.

I stood up and said “YES I WANT TO GIVE MY HEART TO JESUS CHRIST!” As they were praying for me, I felt the Holy Spirit hit me like a flood. Then my soul was uplifted and I felt no more heaviness – and it like I was floating on air,

I could never forget the feeling of the Holy Spirit. And now I continue to praise God and worship Him even more and watch others grow in Christ.

I believe that God can set you free from anything because NOTHING in IMPOSSIBLE to GOD.

Have faith and keep your faith strong….
