YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD - MATTHEW 5:14

Your breakthrough will embolden another.

Your pain is someone’s purpose.

Your tragedy is someone’s teacher.

Your suffering is someone’s saving grace.

 

SHARE IT.

 

OUR MISSION:

Obedience to Jesus’ Great Commission has never been easier than today, thanks to our digital connectivity. 

 

[Read why speaking out about your faith is now more important than ever]

 

This blog is dedicated to sharing faith stories that comfort, uplift, and inspire others to place their faith in the Great Physician, Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace named Jesus Christ. His name is above all names! We can literally reach the ends of the earth with this good news from the comfort of our own living room.  We can start a blog, add our testimony to the signature line of our emails, or pin it to our social media accounts. We can share our faith without awkwardness or without even having to break the ice.

Right now, someone (perhaps you) is turning to the Internet, "Googling" a problem, hardship or circumstance...searching for advice or answers. I am honored to share these stories of coming to faith in Jesus Christ. My hope for Light in a Dark World is to recycle pain, tests, and trials into purpose and to transform the life of a reader with that same struggle. Our testimonies contain the saving power of God. It's amazing, praise God!

Someone who is going through the hardship you have come out of is searching online, right now, for the hope you have already received. 

Your faith story is unique to your personal faith journey.

 

No two stories are alike. We are called to be the light shining in stark contrast to this ever-darkening world. Revelation 12:11 says, we are saved by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and by the words of our testimony.

Did you hit bottom, lose all that you held dear, and in your humbled state turn to Jesus for help? Did the Lord intervene in your circumstance with a miracle? Perhaps your story doesn't have a happy ending by human standards, but do you have a new found peace and hope to tell of? Did you realize that the plans you had made for yourself pale in comparison to the one God had in store for you? 

 

If your test did not kill you and you have God’s hope and love to share, then acknowledge that God did not bring you to and THROUGH your trial or tragedy for nothing. Although your test may have been the catalyst that brought you to faith in Jesus, and your salvation is now eternally with Him, this is not the full reason you have undergone this trying experience. Your faith journey does not stop there and end with you. God wants you to share with the world how Jesus has changed your life.  We are not saved THROUGH our fruitful works, but we saved TO works that bear fruit.

You were given a gift to share with the world for the benefit of others,

to bring hope to the hopeless.

 

2 Corinthians 1:3-5 says we have been comforted and are to use this comfort to comfort others. Our stories are told in obedience to the Great Commission of Jesus by recounting our pain, adversity, or tragedy and sharing how the Lord has comforted us and transformed our minds, circumstances, or lives. While some stories demonstrate clear supernatural intervention from the Lord, and others speak of God's steadfast comfort and love, all are equally amazing faith testimonies of His presence and His purposeful plan for our lives. The common thread between our stories is that Jesus Christ is the intercessor between us and God (Hebrews 3:14-16) and we will never doubt God's presence in our lives again. Jesus has changed us and we are new creations in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17). Perhaps our starting points differed: we were athiests, agnostics, new age mysticals, or had dry, dead religion composed of rules and rituals, instead of a relationship with the creator of the universe. We were not converted...we were reborn (John 3:1-21) into an eternal promise and relationship that was bought for us some 2,000 years ago on a cross at Calvary (John 19).

 

Bloggers and contributors are welcome to share stories of a trial or test that God has made beautiful from the ashes of sorrow. Don’t waste your pain…someone who is going through a similar situation needs to hear from you and be introduced to Jesus! If you have received physical, emotional, or mental healing and deliverance, please consider publishing, republishing or linking your story here by contacting us. If the faith story the Lord has given you involves a breakthrough that can encourage others, we want to hear from you too!

 

Still feeling hesitant to share what you have gone through? Please know that there is no longer any condemnation for our past mistakes (Romans 8:1). You are a new creation in Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17). Therefore, be bold and fearless (Hebrews 10:35-39) to share what Jesus has done in your life (2 Corinthians 3:2-5)! The great apostle Paul often wrote of this boldness in sharing the gospel (2 Corinthians 3:12, Ephesians 3:12, Ephesians 6:19and particularly, his own faith story of his conversion on the road to Damascus (Acts 9). 

It's been said that our lives as Christians are the only Bible some people will ever read. Let your let shine before them! However you decide to tell your story, tell it with confidence and without fear (Hebrews 10:35-39), and as our culture becomes increasingly hostile towards HIS name, remember Jesus said if we deny Him before men, He will deny us (Matthew 10:32-33) when we stand before the Father on that day. 

As you will read in my faith story below, I am a lifelong lover of music, and so felt led to include a healing music ministry section.

 

Music transcends language with raw emotion that can be understood on a soul level. This is why music is an important part of my life and my worship to God. The songs I have streaming here contain lyrics that lift downtrodden hearts and eyes up to the one who knows their sorrows, hurt and pain and can make a way out. They also serve as a reminder and reinforcement for believers that the Lord's love is never changing and His presence is constant (even when we can't feel Him). Scroll down to the footer to take a listen to some inspiring faith songs. 

My Faith Story

 

My name is Cindy and below is my faith story. It was told at my baptism in 2014 and originally published anonymously in 2016 on another website designed to lead people to Jesus through their testimonies.  I buried my experiences for a long time because as I returned to work, I was keenly aware of the stigma and discrimination that people with disabilities face in the workplace. I also did not want to look back on the pain I went through. But I knew that I could no longer keep my faith story to myself because I had not been physically healed for the sake of my own life becoming more pleasant or free of stress. My healing experiences are the spiritual breakthrough others will be inspired by to seek a real relationship with the Lord. 

 

Freely you have received, freely give (Matthew 10:7-8)

Today, by the grace of God, exceptional medical care, holistic nutrition, and complementary/alternative modalities, I am healthy and manage a Christian health and wellness blog and coaching practice. After taking a virtual tour of Liberty University online in August 2017, I was accepted into their Master's of Public Health degree program in September....I am excited to graduate in 2019! I solely manage Light in a Dark World

Solomon



Solomon gives his testimony below of how Jesus has removed the sins that so many today are struggling with as people search for fleeting and harmful pleasures in this world. If you have come to a place in your life where you want to give up the lifestyle of a revolving door of sin, God is waiting for you. Jesus said to a promiscuous woman, "Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.” (John 8:11). He will do the same for you. There is nothing you have done that is too shameful to be cleansed of.


"As far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us." Psalm 103:12

I have shared my testimony here to encourage you and for the glory of our LORD JESUS, how HE has saved me from my sin and shame. Below is the list of sins GOD has set me free from as mentioned in John 8:36, ("So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed").


I was indulging and addicted to pornography, masturbation and excessive unquenchable lustful adulterous sexual desires, adultery, night clubs, unreasonable anger, using filthy words, speaking lies. Smoking, consuming alcohol, Indeed JESUS has set me free from it all and has enabled me to testify for HIS glory and to encourage and create awareness among those who are addicted to any kind of sin and finding hard to give up as I once was.


When i repent and confessed my sins to JESUS, asking HIM to help me to overcome the sins I was in, and from the sinful thoughts I had. The blood of JESUS cleansed me from all unrighteousness and sin which has been an open door for demons to enter into me to control, manipulate and to be disobedient to the word of GOD which has led me into lie, deception, anger, hatred, watching worldly satanic movies, listening to worldly satanic songs, disrespecting, speciousness, jealousy, cheating, using filthy words, pride, lust, thought of wanting to rape a person, pedophilia thoughts, seduction, fornication, adultery, masturbation, sexually abusing myself, pornography, sexual wet dreams, dreaming as if I am having sex with a woman, smoking, consuming alcohol, sins which I have committed which I have forgotten to confess the HOLY SPIRIT helped me to bring it to my mind to confess as it is mentioned in 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.


So i may be free from all demonic spirits which is in me. Thank you for forgiving me JESUS. And suppose if you are into any of the above mentioned sins I was in, the same GOD who set me free is able to set you free from the bondage of sin you are in, only when you repent and come to HIM humbly confessing it unto HIM, Jesus said in Luke 13:3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish...and the reason He came is for such sinners, as He mentioned in Luke 5:32 I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent."...and to destroy the works of the devil as mentioned in 1 John 3:8. The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.


If you are able relate to the sins just as i was in the past, please don't feel bad or hesitate to share, express and expose via inbox, any sin you are struggling with just as I was struggling to overcome those sins in the past, but now set free by the grace of God, only to warn and encourage you in the LORD that you too can overcome from all sins which you are into now. As mentioned in 2 Timothy 2:25, "Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will". It's a blessed obligation to serve you and the body of Christ Jesus in encouraging them in overcoming sin just as I have overcome by the grace of God.
