I was born in Colombia back in 1986 but I’ve been living in the US for a year now. I married my wonderful husband David and together we’ve been searching for God. He is a musician (drummer) and his desire is to serve God with his music.
I received Jesus as my Savior at the age of 17 but it was not all roses and unicorns. I remember I challenged God and with tears in my eyes and heart, I asked Him to prove to me that He’s the God the crazy people from church had been talking about since I started going there at the age of 14. I was just tired of living and such a young age. My dad had abandoned us when I was 14 and me, my mom and sisters had to face many trials, however God never forsook me. His hand was always present in my life even without me noticing it. We are so blind when we don’t know The Lord but praise Him because He is mighty to save!
One of the things that really left me in shock was right after my conversion. One day I was talking to my mom and she confessed to me she had tried to abort me but did not work. I was still alive in her womb and I was a healthy baby when I was born.
My walk with the Lord has been beautiful and on that walk I have faced many difficult moments (not beautiful at all) in my life but I have never denied His name. I have always remained strong knowing that Jesus said we would face trials in this world but that He had overcome the world. Nevertheless, there was a time in which I had a non-existent relationship with God. My prayer life vanished and I didn’t even realize when or how but The Lord is good and He came to my rescue once again
