This Is My Story

Fifteen In Touch magazine readers share their stories of the Lord's hand at work in their lives.

 

Last spring, we asked for readers' testimonies of God’s faithfulness, and over 3,000 of you responded. The stories that follow are just a sampling of the moving and inspirational entries we received. We're grateful for each of you who took the time to share from your life, and we want to encourage you to keep telling your story with others.

Our prayer is that through these accounts of our heavenly Father's love and graciousness, you'll also see His hand at work in your own life more clearly—and recognize the power of remembering and recounting His goodness (Ps. 105:1-5).

 


A family struggling to put food on the table comes home to an astonishing surprise.


She’d lost her job and marriage, and now a foreclosure notice was on her front door. But one church stood in the gap for her—and changed the whole story.


He didn’t think forgiveness was for murderers like him—that is, until he met Smoky.


A woman abandoned by her husband comes to terms with the storm in her heart—and the God who cares about even the tiniest of hummingbirds.


She prayed for her dad’s salvation for 30 years, and now she wasn’t sure how much time he had left.


A teenage runaway and a life-changing conversation.


A Vietnam vet finds signs of God’s grace in the continuing story of a fellow soldier, 40 years after his friend’s death.


After losing the special needs foster child they’d fallen in love with, a couple waits for the Lord’s timing.


In the aftermath of a tragic plan crash, a missionary family must choose between despair and faith.


A woman in financial straits is moved to give sacrificially—with an unexpected result.


When she lost her vision, she thought she’d lost everything. But God had something else in mind.


After being angry with God for 17 years, a woman learns to see Him differently in the midst of loss.


His career was over in a moment, but the Lord had better plans.


A mother experiences God’s presence and provision far from home—even as her son was dying of cancer.


Her version of the American Dream went down in flames—but that wasn’t the end of the story.

    Thank you InTouch Ministries for publishing these wonderful testimonies. It reminds us that it's good to recount/remember the Lord our God and ALL that He's done for us-especially in our seasons of waiting. We are able to look back & remember where God provided(the way He saw fit to do so). I've just read ALL of them with much delight in my heart. They all testify to the goodness of God and to the truth that our Heavenly Father is Who He says He is. The stories speak to the provision, love, care of, faithfulness to us that God extends. I love Him & am grateful to your ministry AND to the men/women who allowed us to share in their stories. Thank you all!

    My name is Rebecca. I was born to an Orthodox Jewish family from Persia. Yes, like Esther from the Bible! There came a time that I became angry at the God that I knew and I was raised with. The God that I had know through reading the Torah. I stopped reading my Torah on Saturdays( Shabbat) and I decided there is NO GOD!! I was so angry that the only thing I could think of was I want to die!
    God heard my prayer. He send me a man that I could trust and then he spoke to me about Jesus. I got so angry with him that I said I will read the Tenach, ( Bible without the new Testament), to prove him wrong! For few months I devoured the word of God , because I wanted to prove to him that Jesus is not the son of God ! But , one day something beautiful happened ! As I was reading the book of Daniel for the first time in my life, I saw Jesus . ( as woman we were encouraged to only the Torah and not the prophets) I can't explain how I felt. There was joy and yet I was scared. I saw Him , and I knew He is real . It took me another five days to read more , and to make sure He is who they say He is. Then I couldn't hold back any longer . I went on my knees in my own home and prayed for Him to come in my heart. That is how my journey as a Born again believer began. He is my God , my Maker and my saviour. He is my Rock . I am truly a new creation and I am daily thankful for my salvation. God is awesome. He heard my cry . He came to my rescue. He let me die to my flesh and rose me from the dead. The wounded and battered woman is no longer alive . The rejected woman died and the Lord rose a new woman . My security is in the Lord . No man can hurt me again. No one can reject me again. Because , I am so loved by the Mighty God of Israel , who was and who is and is yet to come. Hallelujah
