Sheila's Faith Story
As I sat thinking about my journey and what to share with you, my heart was gloriously filled with gratitude and joy. It's good to retrace our steps and revisit the carcass and gather fresh wisdom, gratitude and joy. I gathered up a few stones to share with you about who God has been to me, His faithfulness to transform and His power to heal.
I came to my Father filled with such the feeling of abandonment. I felt lost like an orphan with no home. Lost, lonely and filled with depression I gave my life to the only One that made me feel hope, feel love, and feel whole. I surrendered my life, was filled with the Spirit and so began the undoing of who I had become and the discovery of who I was created to be.
God set me free. As I faithfully attended church, prayed and read God's Word He turned my depressed hopeless heart. I began to see differently. I felt real life as God restored hope to me again.
He has renewed my mind, revealed real identity to me. I found purpose and passion. I found a love that I did not know before. He works in me daily to change me, to mold me and shape more into who I was created to be.
I have been completely lost and consumed by sin in desperate need of change in my life. God has taken me through the process of undoing all that I had become due to life choices and circumstance and revealed the person I was created to be. I have experienced great loss, addiction and heartbreak and came out better in the end. God led as I walked and even in the darkest of nights He illuminated my steps and saw me through.
I have been given a heart to see women walk in their true God given identity. I have a passion for leadership and ministry. God has given me a gift to write and I love sharing my story. I love to read, learn and grow. I am involved in the local church and various online ministries. God has truly taken the ashes of my life and turned it into something beautiful.
This journey has helped me to see the power that reflects from sharing our story. I have made it my purpose to be vulnerable, transparent and raw, at times, with who I am and the path I have walked. Because it is through the power of the blood and the word of our testimony that God is glorified.
Join me in walking out our salvation and owning our stories and sharing our faith so that we can see our sisters walk in victory.
