I am so honoured to have a testimony to give. I was born into a spirit-filled family
so I was blessed. But being born into a spirit filled family doesn't necessarily make
it easy and doesn't mean you automatically become a son and daughter of God, just
because your parents are. My sister received the Holy Spirit with the evidence of
speaking in a brand new language that she had never learnt before when I was 8.
My sister received the Holy Spirit...man I was jealous.
Man, I was jealous. She had it and I wanted it too, but it took me a while. I guess
praying out of jealousy was not the best way to start praying. But 2 years later
I received this amazing gift which meant I could speak to God, even if I didn't know
what to pray for. It was amazing. I didn't need to learn any speeches to pray for
each different need I had in my life. I could just speak in this brand new language that
God had given me.

So about 3 years earlier I had been diagnosed with epilepsy and was put on tablets
to make the fits less frequent. But still, I would wake up in the middle of the night
and just beg to go back to sleep because if I didn't I knew I was going to have a
fit and fall from my bed (top bunk, of course). I would grab the bed sheets and anything
to try and save myself.

Just before I was baptised, I heard a testimony of how this person had been filled
with the Holy spirit and baptised and then they received the healing they had been
wanting. Well, that was it, I was determined. I received the Holy Spirit and now
I was going to get baptised. I got baptised and stopped taking my tablets. I had
another fit but that didn't stop me. I had prayer that I would be healed and to this
day I have not had another epileptic fit. So God saved me when I couldn't save myself.

I have not had another epileptic fit.
Like I said at the beginning, just because you are born into a spirit filled family,
doesn't make it easy. When I was young, I was abused by a person who is supposed
to look after me. I was taken out of that situation but not without being affected.
I have seen first hand the two different paths you can take after going through these
situations. I am so happy that I have God in my life who no matter how down I am
and no matter where I am, He is right there, to make things happen that make me a
happy shining light for Him. I know all I need to do is obey his words, trust Him,
have faith and He will never let me down.
