Be encouraged with these awesome Christian Testimonies of how God broke through the pain and hurt and brought forth salvation, healing, and breakthrough.
What is a Testimony?
Testimonies come in all shape and sizes. From salvation to small breakthroughs. All of them matter and all of them are powerful to show God’s love, grace, and faithfulness.
have always loved what my pastor would say about testimonies…
“You can’t have a testimony without a test.”
And that is the truth! We have all faced a different test in our lives that God has brought us out of. The other flip side is the true meaning of a testimony which means to be a witness or give a report. (Hebrew Source and Greek Source)
Looking into the etymology of the word:
“proof or demonstration of some fact, evidence, piece of evidence”
Every time we share our testimonies whether big or small we are demonstrating a fact about who God is. If you have experienced a healing you are giving proof and demonstrating God as Healer.
If we have experienced God’s provision in a situation then we can give evidence that God is our provider.
This is what makes testimonies so encouraging and powerful. They stir up our faith to believe that God is able and willing. They also glorify God and speak of His greatness.
My Salvation Testimony
I have shared my salvation testimony at church and small groups before, but I have never shared my testimony online before. It’s quite a lengthy story, so for the sake of this post, I will condense and share the key things that God did in my life.
I will try to post a video up of my testimony soon! That way I can give a more detailed version of it.
Condensed Written Version:
When I was 15 years old I had an encounter with Jesus. In the middle of the night, He came into my room and talked to me. I believe I was in a trance but not sure. I remember waking up going to the bathroom. When I went back to my bed the encounter happened.
It radically changed my life forever. He set me free of things that were tormenting me. At an early age, I was very interested in mythology and ancient religions. I thought it was interesting and fun to read.
What I didn’t know that it was impacting me on a spiritual level. I started to have some very dark encounters and I became very fearful.
He showed me His love and kindness in that encounter. I knew nothing about God or the Bible when it happened. It was the greatest thing that could ever happen to me.
From that moment on things began to change. But I was in a war with the enemy. Within 6 months I was completely set free of demonic oppression by having a deliverance <— Yup…demons got cast out! Hallelujah!! I also experienced healing in my body!
When they left it was like I was a completely different person. That was when my transformation fully took place. I gave Jesus my heart, my life, my everything.
I am who I am today because of this experience. And I will never ever go back.
And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord: it shall rejoice in his salvation. -Psalm 35:9

Backsliding And How To Find Your Way Back To God
I started sinking deeper into a hole I myself was digging. There were times I started to doubt God existed then I would remember miracles I saw in Mexico. I saw someone being raised from the dead, demons being cast out, and remember God speaking to me. Yet I was prideful and needed help getting out...
Seeking Truth Amidst Suffering
One by one I heard truth from the Lord to counter each lie and I crossed that ugly list out. My heart began to long for Jesus to be praised, glorified, and honored whether I remained with eczema or not. But now I had more confidence that I could actually offer that. I noticed in the next weeks that my attitudes softened toward cleaning and difficult tasks. That these lies no longer hung over me and haunted me. Their power had been broken and light began to shine again inside of me...
Do You Need a Weight Loss Miracle?
Shortly after my first daughter Rebekah was born, I told a friend I started the Weight Watchers program. On the outside it appeared I was simply a new mom attempting to lose pregnancy weight, but I had been battling food issues from the time I was young...
How God Turned My Trauma Into Triumph
My story has a rocky start, a messy middle but a beautiful ending. I grew up fighting battles on all sides, in the world, in my heart, and at home. My parents went through an absolutely horrendous divorce when I was 3 years old. My mother left my father for another man and we went to live with him very abruptly. That man was my stepfather for the next 22 years.
The dysfunction of a broken home plagued my childhood. My parents struggled to co-parent across all of that pain and my siblings and I got caught in the cross-fire....
To Dust and From Dust
I don’t credit anyone but myself for getting me into that mess. I, like the people of Israel, put things other than God as the focus of my life: relationships, being liked, being right… you name it, it probably held precedence over God at some point during those 2 years. The thing is, though (and this is the part that I have struggled the most with), God allowed it...
Nothing Will Be Impossible With God
One day, before I became pregnant, the battle between the adversary and the Almighty was in full force.
I was tidying up the living room and had Bible Screen playing on my laptop in the background. The enemy was pounding my heart and mind, feeding me lies that I didn’t want to swallow.
“How could you ever be a mother? You’re not well enough. You want a baby? Ha! Impossible!”...
Our walk through infertility & postpartum depression & anxiety.
For some time I have wanted to put these experiences down on “paper.” The last two years of my life are years that I will never forget and reliving them fills my heart with joy. Every bit of heartache is like a tiny grain of sand that God used to create something beautiful. This story is probably best suited for the ladies (or fellas who don’t mind girl talk)...
What I Have Learned About Worshipful Living
This week has been emotionally difficult. I had spoken to Mandy a few hours prior to her passing. We were laughing at one of my Facebook posts that was causing quite a stir. She comforted me as I her. We giggled, laughed, scratched our heads at some of the comments...
