I have been a Christian for 10 years now. But I struggled with so many things, especially loving people. I did everything right, at least that I was aware of: I’ve never drank alcohol. I’ve never set foot in a bar except once and I walked right back out in less than 5 minutes because I couldn’t stand the lack of personal space and the atmosphere of one. But I found myself not loving people the way that I knew God wanted me to. I prayed for His guidance. Few months ago something led me to this podcast. My morning routine usually included listening to various podcasts ranging from self improvement, fitness, health, finance, to investment. But I felt like I needed to shut out those other voices and just listened to this podcast. I started from the very beginning and listened to each one as I ran in the morning. One of the first few episodes was about The Lord’s Prayer. I laughed and then cried as I listened and realized how far I was away from what I should be and how great God’s mercy and grace were to me all my life. As I listened more, I started to change spiritually. I found myself more calm and patient. I found myself actually loving people genuinely and wanted what would be best for them. I found myself able to pray for others and articulate my thoughts more clearly to Him.
I found myself taking my time to help others. I found myself hearing the Holy Spirit more often.
I’m at episode 432 now and I intend to keep on listening, and once I get to the most recent one, I plan to go back from the beginning and start all over again.
I am filled with joy because I can experience the peace and the love from Him. I can also express the same to others, and hope to lead them to Him.
Thank you so much for your work. It has changed my life.
