Seeing Clearly

I was referred to Narrow Gate 2 Narrow Path by a friend that I trust. 

For the past 5 years, situations and circumstances have caused me to react by isolating and pulling away from any conflict or confrontation. I felt intimidated by women and I made it a point not trust them, or any “person” for that matter. I knew and I felt myself in literal bondage quickly slipping into depression and anxiety. I was stuck and I knew I had to reach out for help. 

After my 2 day NG2NP session, I no longer feel the need to isolate or distrust. It’s amazing the peace I feel! In my sessions I had such an encounter with The Holy Spirit. He knew exactly how   pain and trauma from my past experiences had affected me. More importantly, He knew how to “heal” and “seal” those emotional wounds. My relationship with The Holy Spirit before was not activated and my relationship with my church family suffered because of it. Today my relationship with The Holy Spirit is extremely close! I know He is directing my path every step of the way. My eyes are wide open and He continues to show me things I need to see, healing me from the things of the past and the resulting hurts from those relationships.  It’s a journey with Jesus and I am ready!

Today, I feel like a new woman! I no longer am prompted to isolate myself. I actually started a female motorcycle riding club in my area. We go for rides after church on Sundays. I have also begun the process of joining the worship team at my church. In these endeavors, I have come in contact with multiple women. I have such confidence now!!  Confidence I did NOT have before! It’s surprising to me!! I am walking in complete freedom! I have a tremendous amount of peace in everything I do because I KNOW He is leading me. I no longer feel depressed or like I need to isolate myself from people or life. I am learning to trust more every day. My new motto is “to have a friend, you must be a friend.”

In this Narrow Gate 2 Narrow Path journey, Jesus has shown me the importance of forgiveness. He has led me to women I have relationships with so that I can ask for forgiveness. Women whom I held grudges against. I now understand and respect the power of true repentance and forgiveness and I see that I truly have a passion and compassion to minister to women. 

 The bondages of sin and death in my life are cancelled. My heart today is for women…I want to build them up in Jesus, and help them heal. Greater than ever before I see the future for me and my kids is bright, and that my experiences in life have been used by God for God. 

I see Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
