In 2017, I attended a friend’s wedding and for the first time, I was curious to know more about the pastors that officiated the wedding. Little did I know that knowing them would not only change, but save my life.
For as long as I can remember, I was pouring out my all to every -and any- one, searching endlessly for someone to love me, tell me that I am worthy, or better yet, reciprocate the feelings I had for them. I was living a spiral of abuse, depression, mental and physical issues. My deep desire for acceptance led me to make incredibly stupid decisions, one after another.
Making the decision to join Crosspointe Ministries and going through my process with Pastor Vickylextar unveiled many issues I needed to heal from and many others I needed to work on, but of all the transformations I’ve lived, learning the importance of the sincere daily walk in Christ and understanding the depth of His love and the value He is placed on us individually and collectively… THAT was life altering for me. When many times after, the enemy tried to convince me that my life wasn’t worth living, I had a firm rebuke, rooted in Christ, tested and proved. I learned the importance of forgiving, and how unforgiveness was hindering my growth and healing. I made the choice to work on my relationship with God, be vulnerable, trust the people God has placed in my life and most importantly, trust that God’s got me no matter what. My life has changed in all its spheres and my relationships have been restored.
I can attest that I’ve learned to walk in in faith and to change lives through love.
