9 Uplifting Christian Testimonies to Encourage Your Faith

In this article I hope to encourage you with these awesome Christian Testimonies of how God broke through the pain and hurt and brought forth salvation, healing, and breakthrough.

Reading testimonies can be extremely powerful and uplifting. This why I wanted to share some with you. But before we get started I thought it would be good to answer “what is a testimony?

What is a Testimony?

And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

Revelation 12:11 ESV

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.”

Christian testimonies pin of stories of breakthrough and salvation

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

salvation testimony of how Jesus saved me

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

Cured In Spite of Modern Medicine By Al D Squitieri,Sr. (1,000 words)

I was not born a disabled person, but a healthy man who became a self employed business owner and Licensed Master Plumber. Blessed with ten children 16 grandchildren and four great ones. I say that so you will now I have seen both sides of the challenged life of being handicapped A healthy man of 59, at a young age for the trade,  could no longer earn living.

Severely disabled by a muscle disintegrating disease, I’d about given up after four years of difficulties with legs and arms. The half dozen doctors, who took $52,000 for testing, specialist, experts, (those who advise specialist) too many no-answer visits, and assortment of drugs,which did nothing for me, taking nothing more then an aspirin for 59 years. The only thing I received was added discouragement, leading to depression. Their “documented clinical proof” that my Polymyositis was incurable, continuously referring to my autoimmune disease as progressive, since the immune system can not be reversed.

Before my illness worsened, I managed to travel some with the help of family. I took my trusted owners became aware of the challenges to the handicapped. Eventually handrails, wall bars, high rise toilets, and mostly ramps out in front of wider doorways made public places accessible. Owners, not all as yet, but many viewed the requirements as needed and understandably so. The American Disability Act offers help and tax credits to those willing to remove obstacles to disabled.

When viewing disabled persons struggling, to continue with their lives, perhaps intruding in your space, you should ponder the thought that for the Grace of God, that could be you. Don’t let that top shelf item fall onto a struggling handicapped person. Lend a hand. They do have feelings, disappointments, days filled with hopelessness, even loneliness. They are real breathing souls, known of God by name.

Miraculously, we found a doctor in a “Physician's Yellow Page” book, which the doctor had no idea how it got here? Being just one hour from us, insisted we visit his office. Dr. Ben Park,an M D licensed in three states, knew a doctor in Montreal Canada, who believed Homeopathic Medicine may cure this disease. Dr. Park made arrangements to go to Montreal,  insisting he'd pay all costs, since this might be my only chance to find a cure. Within minutes, his wife, Mrs kwang Park called back, insisted I go in the morning, and they would meet us there. At the hotel, Mr and Mrs Park were helping me make a flight of stairs, lifting my feet one step at a time, due to the elevator being out of order. Not a surprise.

I managed to keep my sense of humor by leaning on my prayers and those of family and friends, that gave God giving strength of spirit and mind, that sustained me until God sent an answer to prayer. He sent Dr.Park, Dr Saine and Homeopathic Medicine, using ingredients, found in His Good Earth. Harmless, pure, non-toxic remedies, with over 200 in use, over 200 years, worldwide. It’s called Homeopathic Alternative Medicine.

There are different forms of healing, if we are not afraid to close old books, and open new minds. When a doctor reads a chart on a hospital bed, it reads the patient received another dose of Meds, and another doubled the second day, tripled the third. Fourth day the patient died. STOP the non-working, killer treatment, and find an ALTERNATIVE that saves lives, instead of wasting them.

I’ve found in Alternative Practitioners, is compassion for people, not called cases. They care about that person’s rights to the cures, not guesses. Homeopathy does not treat disease by name, but personal symptoms, since one drug or treatment does not fill all. Not a drug that gave temporary removal of symptoms today, and is administered again tomorrow, will work with all patients. Homeopathy or Alternatives do not hide symptoms, but threat the cause.

I was cured of a”incurable” autoimmune disease. The doctors said it was in Remission. That was 24 years ago. I’m still treated by Dr Andre’ Saine, of Montreal, using Homeopathy, and treating what comes with age, now 83. I believe what I see, and what works, but most of all, what doesn't work. The meaning of insanity, is doing the same thing over and over again, when you know it doesn't work.

There is hope when one doesn’t give up. Sometimes it’s enough just facing the fact that the disability may be permanent, and going on to overcome that disappointment. Start to enjoy the life God has gifted you with, and in His strengths, help others. Use your suffering to encourage others. Challenge God to give you what you need to be used and needed by those in your condition, and the blessings will be yours as well as those you help.

When you understand and believe all things are possible to those who believe, there is hope. I can’t say what happened to me, is a blessing all can expect. I only know my story and what the Lord did for me. I’m not a special person chosen when no one else may be, that is between you and God. Talk to Him. Don’t say prayers, but speak to Him, and listen also. Get to know Him, because He knows you and cares about you. He knows your name, and all your cares, troubles and heartaches. He also suffered while he was here on earth. He knows the pain, and sorry and He also weep. God Bless you and start to live a life He has for you. Lord, help us to follow you and your suffering for others,as we attempt to do the same for those we encounter.

This is a GREAT idea for a blog post! I love reading testimonies! And I love that phrase: You can have a testimony without a test. It's true... the stories I love to share about God's faithfulness and the impact He's had on my life all come from a place of suffering.
