God heals relationships

BEFORE October 2008
UP until three months ago, I was still suffering emotionally and was in a state of depression, feeling unhappy most of the time, carrying a heavy heart filled with anxiety. I was going about my daily activities with the feeling of emptiness within me and of being unloved. I do have many friends, some very, very close friends who gave very good advices, my family & siblings (local & overseas) who gave me so much support and yet I was unhappy with everything in my life! It was so unbearable that I had to resort to fortune tellers and to feng shui masters, numerologists, astrologists to speak comfort into my life.

I thought they could tell me what to do that could change my life and make me happy. There was even one fortune teller who predicted correctly (seeing that look that hung on my face); that I suffered from ‘mental torture’ and the solution was to write into a daily diary. I followed her advice but the more I wrote; the more I cried and wallowed in self-pity that life has dealt me such a bad hand!

My relationship with my husband was at its worst; we hardly spoke to each other whilst walking in and out of the same bedroom and the same house. Words exchanged between us were never longer than 3 sentences; the criticisms he directed to me or the ‘verbal missiles’ (harsh words) I launched at him would drive the ‘rift’ between us wider and deeper. These were the daily highlights of our household. He found solace in “drinking sessions” at places where pretty young girls are aplenty; they would do anything for a free drink, dinner and RM100 ringgit tip? And of course, my revenge and my escapade was to find love and simulate that love elsewhere.

At home, I was always very ‘irritable’ and jumped at the way my husband and children spoke to/with me .I recall that everyday I wanted to die so as to end all the emotional pain I was experiencing. I was on the verge of divorcing my husband to end the emptiness and unhappiness I lugged within me everyday. I even thought to myself, that if I can’t make him happy I might as well release him to some other women who can make him happy, and vice versa.

So what happened that transformed me into what / who I am today? I now have so much joy & peace in me that amaze me beyond words. I am confident that my hubby loves me and I love him (like when we first met) and we have so much more patience with each other. Come to think of it, we’ve not had any disagreement(s) since November 2008! This is record-breaking!

AFTER November 2008
IT’S GOD’S HEALING of RELATIONSHIP which I am experiencing AND GOD SHOWED ME THE WAY! IT’S A MIRACLE…PRAISE GOD! IT HAS TO BE! In the past, I did things my way. And everyday I carried emotional pain, bitterness, unhappiness. But WHEN I LEARNED TO DO IT God’s way, I noticed that things just changed for the better.

In the month of October 2008, after being invited by a close friend to Amazing Grace Christian Fellowship Church and after 3 sessions of reading God’s word and praying to God (with/by Pastor James Doss) I made a commitment and surrendered my business, my relationships, my family, my life back to GOD! (I had accepted CHRIST & was baptized in water & by the Holy Spirit when I was 17 years old, but back-slided and the ‘worldly’ temptations took me away from GOD).

I prayed to God to heal my ‘intimate’ relationship with my husband because I have tried on my own efforts BUT could not do it; not only did GOD heal my relationship with my hubby, in November 2008, God even wiped away my memory and the bitterness I had buried in my heart – memories of my husband being with other women, when he abandoned me.

Only GOD knew ‘what’ to fix in the both of us. Previously, I would not allow my husband to touch me, because I would feel so disgusted. But now God has blessed both of us!

Earlier, I could not understand this ‘miracle” GOD had done between my husband and me. How a ‘broken’ relationship can turnaround 360 degrees over night. Was it because I prayed to GOD and asked Him to help me in my most desolate moment? If that were so, I have prayed so many times before, that same prayer to ask GOD to help me, over the last 15 years but nothing happened. So why did it happen now? What was different?

Then GOD explained it to me:-

  1. At Pastor James’ Sunday morning service.
    Genesis 41:51
    - Joseph named his firstborn Manasseh and said “It is because GOD has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s household”.
    Genesis 41:52
    - The second son he named Ephraim and said, “It is because GOD has made me fruitful in the land of my suffering.”

    What GOD did to Joseph (thousands of years ago) GOD did for me! GOD made me forget all my toil and all my bitterness; and is blessing me in my own ‘house of my affliction’. Only God could have wiped out those hurting memories which I, with my human mind tried to erase BUT failed. PRAISE GOD FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS!!

  2. God pointed to me in His words (the bible):-
    Matthew 6:32
    - For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
    Matthew 6:33
    - But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Now I can make the connection, I recalled, when Pastor James prayed with me (3 months ago), pastor reminded me to get right with GOD and I did just that immediately, that same night when I told God I want to live my life His way (not my way) from that day forward! And what’s more wonderful is that GOD (through His prophecies spoken to me at Amazing Grace Church on 31 Dec 2008) told me that he has not finished with His blessings upon me, there are more to come and whatever I ask of Him, which is according to His will in heaven, He will give it to me! I praise GOD for His LOVE for me!!

I’m not hurting anymore, I wake every morning thanking GOD and I go to bed every night thanking GOD that he’s giving me so much peace, joy, happiness and love in my heart.

YOU CAN HAVE THAT TOO; if you are currently in depression/feeling suicidal and hurting from relationships!! Allow God to touch your life and work that miracle for you too!

I have submitted my husband to God in prayer and I’ve asked God to deal with him, as he’s answerable to God (not to me). Now when I look at my husband and children, I praise GOD because I was that close to loosing my beloved family. GOD stopped me from taking that route of ‘divorce’ and healed my relationship with my husband.

God taught me that all I had to do was so simple – JUST walk ‘RIGHT’ before Him and to TRUST Him to do the rest in HIS WAY and in His timing! Now that I have tasted that, I assure you, THAT IS THE ONLY WAY!

John 15:7
“If you abide in Me (Jesus) and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire and it shall be done for you”.

GOD BLESS.

  1. Hello, after reading all these stories over the comments I have been moved to the extent that you will all be in my prayers, everyone who is going through this rough type of situation. I would ask for you to put me in your prayers as well, my story is as follows.

    I’ve been on a relationship with a girl for 2 years. We have had our ups and downs, some were huge downs but we have been able to move on through every hardship, we used to have a lot of love for each other. Ever since last year, she began having an OCD problem, she became a cleaning freak and stopped eating most foods due to fear of food poisoning. It was manageable then, at least. The thing is we are not living close to each other because I have been pursuing my studies, but the thing is I do love her deeply. Our long-distance worked really well, I tell you. So after the OCD back in 2013, our talking-time was slightly reduced. It wasn’t until February 2014 that it all went down. Her disorder grew to such extent that we only talked once or twice a week over the phone or the computer, since she grew afraid of touching either. It was really straining us both, arguments became a common event.

    By mid-April I had to request a break from her, at least throughout May, since the relationship was really weighing me down at that time and some really important tests were coming throughout May (I do mean throughout, the whole month, one after another). We talked twice during May, her conditon was only worsening. By June we were able to talk a bit more, through Facebook messages. She was no longer able to grab her phone and she had got her laptop cleaned. So we messaged twice or three times a week, it was bearable. I finally became settled with the situation, it was starting to become bearable once more. By mid June I brought up the topic about retaking our relationship. She told me she still loved me, but that she was not quite ready to continue as her condition was not that good yet. It was acceptable to me though. Eitherway, I immediately understood and we just kept casually messaging each other.

    When July came, I began missing her dearly, suddenly she had become unable to message me once more. My love for her was higher than ever at that point, but I had to limit myself as just to ask how was she coping when I had the chance. I discovered she was using her videogames console, and upon realizing we could use that to communicate, I took the chance. We were only able to message each other twice before things got really bad. Suddenly her messages were not even cheerful anymore, in fact last time we talked (2 weeks ago) she told me she was not doing ok and didn’t want to talk about it. I got immediately sad, as two years of a relationship full of trustworthiness had become nothing that day. My emotions got the best of me and I just bawled over, begging her to come back to me. She immediately rose in defense and told me to leave her alone, that she was too stressed to deal with that too. That’s the last thing she has ever told me.

    Shortly after I decided to go on a holiday for a week, to clear my mind off. Took one whole week for it. The thing is I came back and used the videogame console to message her once more, asking about how she was. She was not replying, though I could see she was active on it. I kept pushing and kept messaging her, tried to be funny even. To my disgrace, she blocked me through that network. It was devastating. I have no means of talking to her anymore.

    Ever since she told me to leave her alone, I became closer to God. It was my time of need. And if this had to happen in order for me to open my eyes and finally walk towards Him, then I’m thankful. But it still hurts. I love this woman deeply and I can’t let go of her. I keep praying for reconciliation and renewal, I keep praying for her well-being and for God to help her through her hardships. I know God works at his own pace, but I’m really having a hard time to let go of fear. Fear that she will forget me, fear that we will never talk again.

    I think it is no coincidence that I came into this blog. As soon as I read Sister Suzana’s testimony, I realized I was doing it all wrong. My prayers consisted of demanding another opportunity for our relationship, besides praying for her health. The factor here is that I couldn’t let go. I had my grasp full on the issue. Finally, today I had a very touching experience with God. I had to lock myself in my room, close my eyes, open my heart and tell the Lord I completely give myself to Him. I told Him I would stop chasing after the relationship personally, and that I would surrender it completely to Him. Same as my special woman. I decided I’d stop praying for the relationship to grow back, I’m simply limiting myself to pray for her health and let God act upon us both. I was crying badly by the time I was doing it, but after I was done, I felt completely calm, I was sure that was God right there.

    Even though this just happened to me, I’m still having a hard time, and even though I’m calm (not anxious or agitated anymore), a small remain of fear is still there. Fear that she might find another man, that she may want to forget about me, for good. I need your help and counsel, brothers and sisters. I feel like this woman is really the one for me. I have a bad past with relationships, and I settled with this one woman, I was happy like never before for the last two years until this happened. Before this, we were even in talks about actually starting to live together, and get married in some more years. I know what I may think I want is nothing compared to God’s will. If it is the Lord’s will for us to reconcile, may it be done. If not, may the Lord help me get through this terrible depression. I really do hope we can reconcile though. Please, keep me in your prayers.
