“I surrendered myself to the Lord, gave all my worries, fear and sadness to Him. Since then I have experienced abundant grace.”
I grew up in a non-Christian family, and only came to know Christ during a home visit by an elderly couple when I was in primary school. However, I didn’t know much about Jesus until much later in life. As I went through teenage years and adulthood, I faced different challenges, and always felt that I could go through life and adversity relying on my own strength.
It was in years 2011 to 2013 that I fell into depression. Later, I came to know a friend who is a believer in Christ. From then on, I began to pray, and she would pray with me/for me during times of uncertainty. Through her, I got to know more believers and eventually began to study the Bible and attend church in 2014.
2014 was a rough year for me, with many changes. I knew then that I couldn’t just depend on my own strength anymore. I surrendered myself to the Lord, gave all my worries, fear and sadness to Him. Since then I have experienced abundant grace. Through difficult times in life I was drawn closer to Him. I am less shaken, fearful, discouraged and alone. I feel more centred, purposeful and peaceful. One thing I know is that I have a faithful God.
Lastly, I would like to thank Kelly Loh, who has been there for me during my Christian walk.
