Freed from Years of Anger, Anxiety, Fear, and Bitterness
Pastor Prince, I am so thrilled to tell you about the victory that the gospel of grace has accomplished in my life.
Six years ago, my friend passed me some of your ministry resources. At that time, I was recovering from a traumatic injury resulting from giving birth. Shortly after, I wrote to your ministry to share how the Lord healed me of that physical injury. Little did I know then that the Lord was also beginning to heal the deep wounds in my heart.
I grew up in the church and became a believer at 6. Throughout my childhood and early adulthood, I seemed like the perfect Christian girl—nice, polite, and respectful. But on the inside, I was filled with anger, bitterness, resentment, and fear. I was slowly being choked by the web of guilt, shame, condemnation, and legalism.
When I was 28, the Lord began to unravel all the ugliness. I thought I knew grace but I really didn’t because my life, which seemed “perfect” on the outside, was a mess on the inside. I suffered from anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, dizziness, brain fog, feelings of doom and death, vertigo, heart palpitations, and more. I went to many doctors but none could tell me what was wrong.
The Lord healed me through the message of grace as I listened to your sermons day and night. I was so hungry for the true Jesus and I didn’t even know it. As I continued to listen to your messages, there was a real fight of faith to believe that I truly am the righteousness of God in Christ.
The enemy would so subtly shoot arrows of accusation and condemnation into my mind. But the Holy Spirit continued to reveal to me areas of wrong believing. Years of guilt, shame, and pride slowly fell off little by little. The Lord became my strength in this fight and the truth of 2 Corinthians 5:21 became real in my life. No matter what accusation the enemy came against me with, whether real or imagined, I had the blood of Jesus and the finished work of the cross that shut the door to every lie!
Slowly, my symptoms began to disappear as my heart was being established in His grace. Even when anxiety and fear try to enter my heart, the gospel of grace has taken permanent root in my life and reminds me of who I am in Christ. Even though everything isn’t perfect, I have a new and living hope in Jesus! I am so happy to share that I am free!
Thank you so much, Pastor Prince, for preaching the gospel of grace. My husband and 2 little children love listening to you, and we love to tell others about you and the gospel! You and your ministry have a special place in my family’s heart. We are so glad to be ministry partners with you as you share the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
All glory to Jesus! God bless you and your beautiful family!
