This is my story
I grew up in a Christian home and was saved at the age of thirteen. My father was a pastor for fifty years, so much of my youth was spent in the pew. During my college years, however, I drifted away from God and chose my own course. Shortly after college I married and had two children of my own. Life seemed to be going in the right direction until my late twenties when I started experiencing severe panic attacks. These attacks would leave me unable to function and feeling paralyzed. My doctor prescribed medication, but after just a short trial period, I decided that I could not live my life in a drug-induced stupor. After several failed attempts to switch meds, one day I remember picking up my Bible, holding it close to my heart, and declaring out loud, “This Bible is my answer.” I started reading two or three hours daily. I remember the love of Christ that would flow over me as I cried out to God for him to rescue me. He truly was my comforter.
One day I read in the Bible: There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love.
I was so overwhelmed. I knew I had read that passage before, however, this particular day, it took on a new meaning. I quoted that verse over and over and I was completely healed of panic attacks. I started praying for others and they were healed. During that time I learned the power of His name, His word, and His blood. The Lord called me into ministry and has continually blessed me as I move out to do His work.
