Lydia 's Story

December 19th, 2016

Growing up in a Christian environment is definitely a blessing but at the same time it can be so dangerous... it may not make you think for yourself. You just do whatever all the other people in the church do and trust that this is the right way to live. This is exactly what happened to me. And since this life of just going to church and just be nice to people seemed so senseless to me i turned my back from it. I started partying and searching love and affection in different men. After four years of that lifestyle i didn't feel satisfied at all and even more broken. I cried out to God and said "if you want to use me you can have everything but show me how"... with that my journey began. I went to a discipleship school in Australia. With that school we traveled to 5 different countries to preach the good news. Through these months i realized how my focus on life is not to make myself the happiest and satisfied i can be but to be loved by my Father and to serve him with everything i have. I was able to surrender every part of me and nothing ever felt more freeing. I trust God for my provision for my future. I know i will not go home and live my ordinary life but i will go out into the nations wherever he will send me. I will pray for the sick, drive out the demons in his name and most important just spread his love. I'm 21 years old and live in Switzerland and i know already that my friends will all tell me to be responsible and go study or find a job but there's nothing better than live for what God has truly made you! I don't want to be a lukewarm Christian but i will burn for my King and set other people on fire.
