Unexpected Gift! by: Victoria Rosenthal

I have wanted to write this for a long while but I could not find the right words. A few years ago I was going through a really difficult time in my life. I had a lot of personal disappointments and felt disconnected from life in general.  I felt that I lost hope in friendship and love.

Now I have to tell you that going to church is not a natural thing for me.  I was born Jewish in a really anti-Semitic country, so I have come to associate Christianity as the oppressor. If you told me two years ago that I would be a Christian, I would not believe you.

Now, God it good, so you ladies must know where this story is going. A friend brought me to Rock Church and I just started crying as soon as the music started playing and I couldn’t stop.  It was not only the powerful presence of God that I  experienced stronger  than I have in any other place, but also the people that I met and the miracles I have experienced in Church that are beyond listing.

I was a smoker and I had a hard time breathing. A lady approached me who turned out to be a pulmonary doctor and offered to pray for healing for my lungs. People in church that I never met would just know the hurt I was carrying, and guess it specifically, and tell it to me in such an uncanny way, there is no way to see it as other than God was speaking through them. Anything I searched for I would find. If I felt unseen that week, someone in Church would notice me, if I felt confused they would tell me why.

The biggest miracle happened this week. Zahairah seemed to just know that I felt insecure about finances. She wanted to come to my house and bring me some money. Actually, a lot of money.  I couldn’t imagine that kind of kindness and love for a person that you just met. I asked her if she knew of a career counselor instead and it turns out this is Nicole’s job. Nicole spoke to me for almost two hours and I felt that things weren’t hopeless.  

One thing I can tell you ladies is that I am beyond myself in appreciation and gratitude and that I am insecure that I wouldn’t know how to be as good and kind as you.  My hope is that God will give me the words and tell me how to act so I can be a support to you also, so that you know the kindness you both did for me was not in vain! In a week that my head was a mess, you both brought such happiness and hope. You don’t know how happy you have made me feel! I am so happy that I have met you ladies. God is good!!!

(yes ladies this is what it is all about! ~Inspire~ Glory be to God!..lets grow the Kingdom! ~Zahairah)
