It's Friday, so that means it's time for another Choose Freedom story! This week, meet Helen...
Hi Helen! So, how did you find out about Freedom in Christ?
I was baptised in November 2016 and the following year my pastors wife said she was running this course and my friend asked if I would like to go with her.
Which part of the freedom message has had the most impact on your life?
I think for me personally it was learning about forgiveness and the security of knowing God is in control as I have always been a worrier and shy person.
How has your life changed?
When it came to dealing with unforgiveness in the Steps To Freedom, I had it on my heart to get in touch with my eldest sister who had cut off contact and I hadn't seen in over a year. It gave me the confidence to take that first step and also it gave me a hunger to want to know God more. I wanted to start reading my bible - I had a passion for it and even wrote out the whole bible, in 8 months! I started to do volunteering, visiting people in their homes, which was something totally out of my comfort zone. Most recently I had it on my heart to learn Hebrew, and I've picked it up really quickly!
What would be your advice to someone thinking about doing Freedom in Christ?
It’s fantastic! This course really opens your heart to know who you now are in Christ and it will completely change your life! I am so glad I did this course as it drew me closer to God and gave me a hunger to want to know him more.
