When i heared the man i loved the most was cheating on me for last few months and i came to know it from that girl i was shattered. When i ran for my life from my ex-husband 2years ago i was strong and was relieved to be out of that place and relationship.
But the pain i felt that day made me realize how much i loved and never felt anything closer to the man i married. First name which came out of my mouth was ‘oh Jesus’.
I am Indian born into Hindu family. As my mama’s best friend is a catholic christian i know who is jesus and have been to churh and loved Jesus Christ as one of the god among so many other gods which we prayed in our home.
But all i could call and cry out the despair was Jesus. I did not know why then.
I realized that night how i forgot god and put all my faith, trust and love only to this man.
I understood God gave me big smack on my head and opened my eyes saying ‘hey he is just a man with lots of weaknesses, Its ME the Almighty who you should put all your trust, faith and love before anyone in this world’.
It was a revelation to me. I picked the bibile he had gifted me few months ago. I started reading most of them didnt make nay sense tome but i could feel my hearts burden is melting away through tears and i was gaining strength to hold on. an unknown hope and trust that my Lord is there and he will give me what i meant to have. Also i trusted the love he evoked in me for this man.
By reading the Bible i wanted to know more about it. So i asked him whether he can help me to understand Lords Word.
He called me to his place and he had a book in his hand with old man picture . The book was THE JOURNEY By Billy Graham.
He said i will read few chapters each day and as the author is a great gospel preacher i can understand better through his writings.
We started reading The Journey in the courtyard in our building. The man who was sitting next to me have planned and manipulated to let me go and accept another girl but when he started reading nothing mattered. I could see the goodness more than his weakness. I felt the presence of God in the courtyard everytime we read the book.
Each chapter was life sculpted into my heart. I felt Lord is talking to me and stirred and called me into him arms.I understood Jesus Christ is the Only God , my saviour.
The change also happened in him as he was reading to me. He claim himself a christian and said he decided to give me up becuse i am not a christian.
Later he said by showing Lords way to me he was realizing how much he have to get back to his faith.
To make the story shorter. I want to thank God and Billy Graham for showing me the way. To show me the truth that the only god is Jesus Christ , our savior.
The Journey truly changed our life.
I love God and love Billy Graham for saving many lives like me.
