I’ve had very bad panic and anxiety attacks since I was about 12 or 13 years old. When I was 14, I was put on Xanax, a narcotic pill that is very addictive. Through all those years, I prayed and believed God could heal me. But I was very fearful of God. I was told that I would be sorry on judgment day because of all my sins. So I stayed away from church.
Pastor Prince, my daughter made plans with two of her female friends from church to travel throughout Europe and Greece in July 2016. Even though our family and friends had concerns about her traveling in a time of global unrest and violence, my husband and I felt peace from the Lord and did not object to her plans.
I grew up in a very legalistic family. My dad was a pastor of a big congregation before he went to be with the Lord in 2009. Growing up, we were always taught to memorize the laws in the book of Exodus. Everything about my upbringing was that I good had to do in order to receive God’s blessings.
Some time ago, my finances were running low and I had no idea where the income to pay for all my monthly bills would come from. At that time, my car was in the repair shop and I was also informed by the insurance company that I had to pay an excess of ZAR 8,000 for my car. On top of that, I still had other bills to take care of.
Pastor Prince, there was a period in my life where my Bible study time was so lifeless and dry. I would read the Word but couldn’t get much out of it. I started to feel condemned and guilty and stopped reading the Bible for a long time.
