Mighty woman

In the Spirit


I  met Sister Donia during my Pentecostal experience and I am so glad The Lord brought her in my life. She is an old widow from Africa, living with her son and her niece. She spends all her time in the scriptures, in prayer and in fasting, trusting the Lord for every single thing in her life. And it works!

She is always in the Spirit. Always seeking for the Lord, always seeking for a revelation and her entire life is full miracles and amazing testimonies. The Lord taught me a lot through her.

Fruit of the Spirit

Sister Donia was married to an adulterous non believer man and this situation led her to the Continue reading “Mighty woman”

Spiritual Dominates Material

My car key obeyed


I took my 18 years old Renault Clio to MOT last month and after a few repairs it passed fine after the retest. I thought that I was sorted for 12 months when realized that the car was shaking when I go over 30 m/h.

I took it to my mechanic who told me that he will have to change the drive shaft. I’m not sure what it was but I had to pay another £40 on the top of £315 I had already paid for the repairs for the MOT.

After 3 days without a car I finally got it back and rushed to Lidl as I had to do some shopping. When came back to the car it would not start!! The car key would not turn in the barrel. I was thinking what’s going on with this car!!! Is there a ghost or a demon in this car ? 🙂 (only joking)

Second attempt

All about persistence


In April 2017, I began to feel the desire to put myself available for the Lord again. I knew I had done it before and it had not worked out as I was expecting. But I also knew that I had learned humility and I was willing to learn more with the Lord.

I was working full-time as an IT Analyst. My work contract was going to terminate end of May but I had the opportunity to apply for a permanent role. Even if I was afraid of being ashamed as I felt in 2015 (shame then glory), I knew that the Lord had taken care of me and would always do so.

Extension

I spoke to my team leader and notified to her that I was not going to apply for the Continue reading “Second attempt”

Shame then Glory

Nothing is wasted


In March 2015, I was listening to some tapes of Charles Finlay about revival and I began to feel an urge to put myself available for God. I was still working at the Law firm where I met Fermina but I knew that when the Lord calls you, he takes care of you.

He told us: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” Matt 6v33.

Resignation

We eventually sold our second house in France I knew we were going to have some money in. I spoke to my pastor about leaving my job and putting myself available for God but he thought it was not a good idea. Continue reading “Shame then Glory”

Pentecostal Experience

Spirit and Works


One day, my wife handed to me a leaflet for a Christian concert with rap music, reggae and so on. I was not deeply moved to go as I still had painful memories regarding Rap with Christ.

For some reason she was insisting that I should go as I would like it. So I eventually went with our daughter with me. She was 7 at the time. I really enjoyed this concert! There were around 30 people in a hotel but I was impressed to hear the youth testifying about Christ and what he did for us at the cross. They were so young but yet so bold!

Making disciples 

I had a nice chat with the pastor at the end of the concert and I was enthusiastic about what they were doing. They were strong on evangelism and discipleship. Basically the concept was 1) Reaching people with the gospel, 2) Disciple them in Jesus’ way, 3) Release them as pastors so they can “reproduce” themselves.

Fermina

She was called


In May 2013 I started a new job in a Law firm as an IT Analyst. I had spent 11 months in a call center and the Lord had opened the door for a better job with a better salary and more than that!

This new job was really challenging as I had to do everything in English. In my previous job I was speaking in French 70% of the time. In that new job, I had lawyers and PAs over the phone and all day!! I jumped from 20 to 40 incoming phone calls a day.

One day I heard one of my co-workers speaking French and that was so nice to hear my language at work. I introduced myself to her. She was French and had joined the company 2 weeks after me. We will call her Fermina. Continue reading “Fermina”

Trusting for finances

Giving to the Lord


In June 2013, I made a step of faith in the area of finances. This changed my way of thinking and my approach when it comes to finances.

I remember hearing my pastor preaching on tithing and that was quite new for me. I was born in the spirit in a Baptist church and they were preaching to give according to what the Lord put on your heart.

My pastor in the pentecostal church was telling me that we rob the Lord when we don’t give 10% of what we earn and I was challenged by this. I went to my bible but I could not find a scripture supporting that statement in the new testament.

It’s about trust

However I noticed that I was afraid to give 10% of my salary and I knew that this fear Continue reading “Trusting for finances”
