Life Restored After Leaning On God’s Grace

 

I have been a Christian since I was three years old, when my aunt first brought me to church. Back then, having heard about Jesus’ love and what He had done for us, my faith in him grew strong.

Since then, John 3:16 has been my favourite verse. I also realised that I always had more than enough favour and blessings on my life.

I could even love the ones that didn't exactly treat me very well in school. Once, one of the school bullies asked me why I could treat her with love despite her trying to put me down all the time.

I said, “With faith — we love because God first loved us.” She then told me she had been jealous of me. I went on to forgive her and ever since then, she became a believer.

However, when I grew up, I became proud and arrogant, thinking I had a part to play in my successes. What a deadly mistake! As the old saying goes, pride always comes before a huge tumbling fall, my life went into total chaos.

Whatever could go wrong, went wrong. My debts piled up despite my high-paying job. My husband and I started to become estranged and my family relationships began to break down.

Though I attended church every Sunday, my faith in God was nowhere to be found. It seemed like I was just listening without processing what I was hearing. I was so full of myself that I thought I didn't need Jesus to be successful.

I came to a point where I was in a suicidal state. I felt that there was no purpose in life and I kept asking God to bring me home.

I was breaking down — physically and mentally. One day in 2015, I felt the burden on my shoulders becoming so huge that I broke down. It was at this moment when my three-year-old son, who had been attending Rock Kidz (our children’s ministry), came to me and said, "Mummy, don't cry. Jesus loves you. Bible said so. He will help you."

It was then that my eyes were opened and my burdens relieved. Yes! The answer is always Jesus. I was so lost in my pride and works that I forgot to look to Jesus.

After the realisation, I started to walk with God and talk to him constantly. To make things short, not only did my life turn around, I started to experience overflowing blessings. My debts were cleared despite the economy downturn, my relationship with my husband became sweeter than ever before and we were blessed with another son! My family relationship also improved and I even got promoted.

I can only say that it is the grace of God that truly transformed my life. All glory to Jesus!

Marriage Restored And Family Blessed

 

In 2010, my relationship with my wife turned really bad after the birth of our second child. As young parents, we were not able to cope with two young children who were a year apart. Things got worse when we became stressed at work. We quarrelled frequently and had less time with each other. Our lives seemed to revolve around the children and work. We finally separated and engaged lawyers to end the relationship. My wife and children moved to stay with my in-laws.

At this darkest point in our lives, God divinely arranged for us to attend New Creation Church without each other’s knowledge. When I found out that my wife and children were attending the same church as me, I suggested fetching them to church every week.

Though things were still gloomy, both my wife and I chose to fix our eyes on Jesus as our only way to salvation. Weeks of hearing Pastor Prince's sermons and learning about what Jesus had done for us slowly set us free from stress and anger. We began to love each other again with Jesus in our midst.

By the grace of God, my wife and I eventually reconciled, and our relationship is now better than ever before. Our third child was born in 2014, and my wife found a new job which had better work-life balance. She was also promoted within two years and in the third year, she was transferred to the department of her choice where the work was easier to manage.

We bought a new home in 2015 which was within walking distance from our children’s primary school. In 2016, we realised our dream of visiting Israel and I was sponsored for my postgraduate studies, which was a lifelong dream of mine. Indeed, with Jesus, everything is possible!

Double Restoration And Provision

 

Last year, in August 2015, we found out my wife Berinda was pregnant. However, the gynaecologist shared that the fetal development after eight weeks did not look good and was unusually slow. There was a 4mm cell with no heartbeat. Berinda also experienced bleeding throughout the pregnancy. During our visit to the gynaecologist on 30 August 2015, we were told that Berinda had a miscarriage.

We were devastated by the news, but our leaders in church ministered to us, prayed with us for God’s restoration and reminded us to have a good opinion of Him.

In September 2015, Pastor Prince prayed at the end of a service saying, “This time next year, you’ll be holding your miracle baby.” Berinda and I just held each other’s hands and said “Amen”. Our friends who knew about the miscarriage also texted us excitedly to stand in faith with us.

On 18 December 2015, Berinda found out she was pregnant. And on 6 February 2016, at our visit to the gynaecologist, we found out we were expecting twins! We knew in our hearts that it was God who had restored to us! Last year, the theme for our church was The Year of His Restoration. We were stunned and in awe by the double restoration even before the year ended!

We also want to share the style in which God give His good gifts. Berinda’s desire was to have natural childbirth for the twins. She started to lay hold of God’s Word and all His promises concerning childbirth. Her favourite verses were “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’)” (Galatians 3:13) and “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19)

Our gynaecologist highly recommended a C-section because in many cases, even after the first twin is born via natural birth, the other twin might not be in the correct position and there would be a need to undergo an emergency C-section. Berinda and I discussed the matter, and for the safety of the twins, decided to fix a date for the C-section.

In June 2016, Pastor K E Mathews came up to congratulate us and he encouraged us to believe God for natural birth if that was our heart’s desire. This ignited Berinda’s faith to believe again.

On 23 July 2016, one month before the due date, Berinda’s water bag burst. Yet, her heart was at rest, and she even took time to shower and put on make-up before we went to the hospital. At the hospital, she delivered both babies quickly and naturally in less than an hour. It was a supernatural childbirth. The doctors were stunned by the speed of the delivery, and the fact that both twins were in the correct position.

God knew we were concerned about finances for the hospital bill, but our final cash outlay after government subsidies and Medisave deduction came up to over $300 when we were expecting to pay a four-figure sum!

From the restoration of babies, to the safe and natural delivery of the children, to the finances for the hospital bill, God truly did it all for us! Thank You Jesus for these amazing blessings.
