Fear ruled my life: All my life I have been ruled by fear. I would get panicked driving my car and it controlled what I did,
where I went.
Through prayer at HeavensGate Church God healed me and I can now drive my car with no more fear.
For example: I was scared to drive my car and even going to the local supermarket to get groceries was a BIG deal. My heart would
be pounding, my tummy would be in knots and I would feel a nauseous. Every week it was a battle and I had to psyche myself up to go out and get them.
Since I have been at HeavensGate church, I have learnt that living with fear like this is NOT normal.
(I thought everyone felt like me so it was a shock to realise that not everyone felt like I did.)
I have discovered that Jesus really does heal and set people free – because that’s what he has done for me.
I was a slave to fear and torment, but through prayer, Jesus set me free. I can now hop in my car and drive down to get groceries, without even thinking about it. No more fear, anxiety or worry or having to psyche
myself up to go out.
Recently I had the opportunity to take my children to Wellington Zoo with for a
birthday party with family friends. In the past there would have been NO WAY I would have even thought about doing this – I would have just said “No, I can’t go”. But God has been getting me ready, and the idea of doing
this didn’t freak me out, like it would have in the past , and underneath it all, I knew I could do it. So, after much prayer, and checking out google maps - I did it! I drove into Wellington, to the Zoo and enjoyed our outing at the zoo
and then I drove home again! Although I was a little anxious about it at first, it went really well and was much easier that I thought it would be. Also, my heart wasn’t pounding like it used to when fear had been there.
I had also suffered from post-natal depression then one day the symptoms returned but I wasn't pregnant, I was very scared. The Pastor
prayed for me and God healed my mind, I have no more symptoms. Hallelujah!
