Through the storm: My Story Part 3

worried-girl-413690_1280

Shortly after baptism, I began to have weird dreams. In those dreams, I would see naked people, or sexual depictions, or even see myself being raped by an unknown man. I knew that those dreams meant something, I had heard women say that they were struggling with a spirit husband situation. I feared that those dreams might point to something like that. I did not know what to do. I searched online for the testimonies of people who have had a similar situation. A young woman online mentioned that she had the same problem, but that she was healed by an online minister, she named the online minister and I immediately searched for that minister. The minister had an online audio prayer session, where she prayed for those within the reach of her voice. I grabbed a scarf and joined the prayer session. I did the prayers twice. After doing those prayers, I prayed to God to show me a sign, to show me what his intentions were regarding that problem. I hated going to sleep because of those dreams, I hated them because I knew they were demonic. I was reading the book of revelations at the time. I was at the part where it said

Revelation 21:1-8
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.…                                                                  

I do not know what it is about that verse, but it came alive to me in that moment. I saw the words and I believed in it, and I was convinced that God was speaking to me. Just as the verse says, “there was no more sea”, there was truly no more sea because after reading that verse, those dreams ceased. After observing that I no longer had those dreams, I sent an email to the minister who hosted the prayer session, to share my testimony with her. She was happy to hear from me, and she even asked to share my testimony at her church, and of course, I agreed. She has prayed for many people with that particular problem, that was her calling. Like every other young Christian, I asked, why is this happening to me? Where is God in all of this? Yet again, I had to trust in the Lord. I wondered if all of that was happening because I was not spiritually mature. I had a brief period of regret, I wondered if I jumped into baptism and the Christian faith too quickly. However, I was thankful that I got baptized, and I am still thankful till this day.

Matthew 10:32

So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven

 

Psalm 119:46

I will also speak of your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame,
