A testimony within a testimony

I was filled with joy when my testimony was published at our church’s website. The Lord reminded that when I was younger, I asked Him “Lord, when will I be able to share Your goodness and greatness, to a large number of people?” and He is so awesome to give this opportunity.

Please feel free to check out the testimony here:

After a few minutes of reading my testimony, I began to question myself “am I worthy?!… am I not this___? am I not that ____?”  Then I felt shame to bear His Name.. I cried like a child to the Lord, recognizing that this was an attack from Satan. I asked forgiveness from God and prayed for His protection and expressed my longing to hide behind His back.

Satan was really cunning to deviate the topic and my attention from the Living God. He wanted me to focus on myself and my failures, may past sins and short comings as a Christian.

But the Holy Spirit lead me to focus on Jesus’ goodness and His strength.

He reassured me with these verses:

Isaiah 54:4-5

4“Fear not, for you will not be put to shame;
And do not feel humiliated, for you will not be disgraced;
But you will forget the shame of your youth,
And the reproach of your widowhood you will remember no more.

5“For your husband is your Maker,
Whose name is the LORD of hosts;
And your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel,
Who is called the God of all the earth.

now, in my mind, I am asking.. who can beat that?!!

And then He welcomed me to hide behind him:

Psalm 32:7: You are my hiding place; You will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah

He has covered my sins when I accepted Him when I was 10 years old and He still got me covered!

  24Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to make you stand in the presence of His glory blameless with great joy, 25to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jude 1)
