I would like to boast about YHWH and Jesus.

I did not want anything to do with churches for a long time because I did not see much of God's power in the churches. But I was in a deep trouble in my life and did not know what to do. I do not want to go into detail because it seems many people have been in the same kind of trouble I have been. In a nutshell, I aksed God to come into my life and make me a Christian. It was about 9 years ago and my adventure with God started. Even though my life did not change right away, it was meaningful because I was enjoying reading the Bible and changing my life accordingly.

After about a year I started changing drastically; I was leading confident life, I did not let my husband manipulate me anymore and I followed Jesus only. Of course my husband was furious of my change and left us when he realized he cannot manipulate us with his worldly mentality and lifestyles, even though he claims he's been a Christian all his life.

God has blessed me with three devoted children; I never had happy family and it was my dream to have one. God gave it me after I became His follower. I believe we are the most happiest family in a whole wide world.

Hallelujah!!! Thank you YHWH and Jesus!!!

I was not going to go into detail of my family problems but since everything I do and say is connected with my faith I would like to explain.

I have been consisting of believing and trusting Jesus teachings; they are wonderful and practical in every aspect of our lives. When we disobey His teachings we are inviting the disaster and not to mention being bad witnesses for our Lord Jesus. My family is good and typical example of that.

My husband married me breaking the Bible teaching of not yoking with non-believer which was me. Of course our marriage was disastrous from the beginning and I could not take any more of his addiction of porn which he has been committing on daily basis. I could not get used to of his hypoctrictical ungodly lifestyle. Most of his favorite shows was sleazy ones like Howard Stern and Jerry Springer and so on.

I could not take it anymore for the sake of our children. Our family was in chaos and my husband many times was so violent verbally. I talked to His pastors and they did not want to get involved and told me to go to women's shelter. So following counselor's procedures, he is in an abusing husbands' list, he is also on a list of child abuser because he beated up our oldest daughter one time when she acted up when she was teenager.

This is the reality of Christian community; they don't know how to help people who are in a predicament.

That's the time I asked God to come into my life and help me to be a faithful Christian. Then I stopped asking other pastors, counselors and christians for help. I just kept reading the New Testament to follow Jesus' teachings. I know the power of Jesus teachings. That's why I am persistant to encourage everyone to follow Jesus' teachings faithfully. Jesus' teachings power started to show in my life. I asked kids to take a choice which one they follow, me or their father because he is following himself and I am following Jesus. Three kids joined me because they have seen their father's hypocrisy and did not like it at all. So my husband left us because he cannot kick all us.

In a nutshell, if we claim to be Christians and don't respect Jesus' teachings we are mocking God and we will be paying all kinds of consequences.

Thanks for sharing this, gingercat. It strengthens me to see somebody who has faith and follows it, even when it means hard times. But those are better times when you don't have the person around you who was trying to drag you down! Again, thanks for sharing your story of living your faith in the Lord.

Thank to the Lord shy1, because He is doing all help!

Here is some more.

I would like to add that Jesus' teachings saved us from a pit and we are now in the top of the world.

Thank you YHWH and Jesus for your teachings!!! We are forever grateful for your most precious teachings!!!

I also would like to say that our family problems are not unique case. Most Christians don't want to talk about their family problems and many times even when they do, they will not get much help from anyone unless it is urgent financial problems. Spiritual problems like ours will not be helped by anyone IMHO. It is because most of us are not being obedient to Jesus' teachings and God's power is not in our lives and we cannot help ourselves much less others. It is just sad. All our daily and spiritual problems are solved if we are sincerely striving to be obedient to Jesus.

Jesus' teachings are solution to all human problems. That's why I propagate it to everyone. I don't propagate any organization or any denomination.

People who are not following Jesus' teachings have all kinds of problems. And Jesus teacings are also very simple to understand; it is hard for us to follow because we are spoiled in many ways.

Being a faithful Christian is the best gift we can give to our children. Kids are the main victims when we are not following Jesus faithfullly.

I have learned so much from our experiences and I know God wants me to use it for His Glory.

My olderst daughter have learned how miserable it is to live with her own ways. She was drug addict, sexually promiscuas, stealing and did many kinds of evil things. When she had her baby, she realized she cannot live with her live-in boyfriend because he was abusive to her and the baby. She came to me for help and I take her in of condition to live according to my household rules which is Jesus' rules. She agreed and her jurney with Jesus started with us too. She is so blessing to us in many ways now. She comes up with many ideas how we can improve our walk with Jesus.

I have another son but unfortunately he is following his father's foot steps. He married with catholic girl even though he is claiming to be a Lutheran and I did not bless their marriage because I knew they are lying to God by claiming to be Christians. After one year of their marriage, he came to me for emotional help because his wife committed adultery. I told him divorce is not solution because that's what he was considering. I gave only one advice that they have to follow Jesus faithfully and that's the only solution they have. He agreed and told me to be faithful. But when I asked him how they are doing with their walk with Jesus, he was saying they don't have time to follow Jesus. I don't hear anything from him ever since.

Our two oldest kids are vitims of their parents disobedience to God. Jina (oldest daughter) learned very well because of her severe consequences of her actions. I suppose Ben(oldst son) did not learn so well because he did not suffer enough from his wife's adultery even though he was misereable enough considering divorce. We are praying he repent of his woldly mentality and turn to God wholeheartedly.

I have two more children (Peter and Abigail) and they are the most fortunate ones because I turned to God while they are still very young. I have been telling them not to forget parents' mistakes and sinful ways
