In the lead up to Easter, we asked you, The Family, to share your stories of how you found your faith. We believe your story is a powerful motivator for others to find and start their own faith journey. One of those that responded was someone who would like to stay anonymous, who shared this story.
Life has thrown me quite a lot of challenges. My father was a Vietnam veteran, and our relationship was abusive and volatile. So I ran away. I ran straight into a transportable at East Beechboro Primary School and it was a Sunday School. I walked up crying and I heard an audible voice, “You are my child, not theirs. Go and ask for help.” And so I did.
From 12 or 13 and onwards ’til I was about 19 I was in and out of home, so it was always challenging. But the one thing that kept me going was that voice that I heard. I grew up on the street. I grew up with drugs and alcohol and gambling. At the end of the day, I was searching for that voice. Through all the darkness in the world, there was always that glimmer of hope.
At the age of 30, I was led to bible college. I learnt about faith and then from there, I met Sonshine FM.
I’ve continued on my journey, things haven’t been easy at times. I’m still learning and still growing and my faith has been my Saviour. The Lord is my saviour. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for Him.
