In my childhood I had a lot of lack of affection. I never received words of approval and/or appreciation. I became a very insecure person and felt that I was a failure. This lack made me look for love in the wrong place. I married at 18 years of age thinking that I would receive the love I never had, but to my surprise it became hell. For many years, I suffered domestic violence and reached a point of so much despair that I even tried to take my own life. I looked for help in Renacer and I was able to discover the roots of my problems and the cycle in which I had entered. Through counseling, I learned to love myself. I understood that Christ loved me first and that he chased me constantly with his bonds of love. I am happy. I feel safe with person that I am today. I enjoy life, from the details to the greatness. Thanks Renacer for opening my eyes to the greatest love!
I left the house at 15 years old and that was when my addiction to drugs began. I got married and instead of improving my situation, it got worst. For many years I suffered domestic violence; which led me to struggle with low self-esteem and co-dependency. Later on, I started using drugs with my ex-husband. Many times I was on the verge of death. I sank into depression and as a result of how I was living my life I lost custody of my children. This became the biggest pain of my life. In the darkest moment Renacer came to my life. They accompanied me for a long time. Their prayers covered me in my weakest moments and their advice affirmed my steps when I could not move forward. Now I am completely free and I can say with complete certainty that I Am Born Again!
When I came to Renacer my problems were many. I felt great sadness. I struggled with low self-esteem and this led me to have thoughts of self-destruction. The lack of forgiveness consumed me. I did not have the strength to forgive since the lack was so great. Loneliness became my best companion. I was in a very dark tunnel where I could not see the light. But Renacer came as a shining light, where I could obtain the life of God in me. As I was taking counseling, I felt more secure. I began to experience hope, love, forgiveness and the peace that surpasses all understanding. Renacer made me feel that I was in a safe place, in a place filled with the light of Christ. Renacer became the bridge of before and after in my life; that's why I will always be very grateful.
If I could describe my old life in a few words it would be DIRTY and SAD. If I could describe my characte it would be ANGRY, PROUD and full of RAGE. I grew up in a family too disoriented in what God was. They taught me to worship a God on a cross, dead and lifeless. Going to church was more a religious event than a living and transformative experience. My parents were alcoholics and they mistreated me a lot. Their lives were quarreling and fighting, not a day passed without harming each other. They never showed me love, so I grew up without knowing what it was to have the love of a father and a mother. I was my best company. I learned how to calm down in difficult situations... alone me, without anyone. When I was between 7 and 12 years old, they physically abused me. Because of the loneliness I experienced and the pain of my trauma, I began to have problems and sexual addiction. For 5 years, I went to psychologists to treat the wound of abuse, but honestly that never helped me, on the contrary I resisted more. For everything that happened I became a person full of anger, resentment and hatred. My life had turned into chaos and when I could not do it anymore, I decided to try to seek help one more time, but this time I did it in a Christian counseling. As a divine appointment I came to Renacer. I started attending therapy, and honestly I was very surprised. I had never attended a therapy where they began the session in prayer first. This place had something different, it had LIFE. They left me as a task to begin developing a relationship with God through prayer and reading the Bible. The first two weeks I did not, but if I really wanted changes in my life I had to submit to God first. One of the things that was clear during my time in Renacer that I had to genuinely develop a relationship with God. I knew that if I did not develop my walk with God this would not work. And I did, I submitted myself to God. Every day I began my day in prayer; my closet became an altar for God, there I entered with my bible in hands and prayed. Honestly at the beginning I did not know how to pray, but I came to understand that to pray is to speak with God. Since I began to search for God and to understand that He first sought me, that He loves me and that His greatest desire is to be with me, I began to give up all the bad sexual habits I had practiced for a long time. He gave me strength and with all sincerity I can say that I have been without sin habits for 5 weeks and I feel good. I learned, with God's help, to control my anger and anger. Every time I want to explode, I run to the closet and talk to God. Renacer did in a month what psychologists with all their human knowledge could not achieve in 5 years. I am still in process, a long process, where sometimes I stumble, where sometimes I do not even want to pray, but of something I am sure, that He who began the good work in me will perfect it. Now I know that God has everything under control and that I can be honest and transparent with Him; I no longer have secrets, I put everything in His hands and I confidently approach Him even in those lower days. I'm still coming to Renacer and I'm learning a lot. I can assure you. Thank you Renacer for being part of my story!
Have you ever heard about the process that the butterfly has to go through in order
to be beautiful and with dazzling colors? At first it is a simple caterpillar, a worm, which not many
find good looking. But to become a butterfly has to go through something called metamorphosis? That's
how I felt ... Many times I asked myself why I had to go through so much suffering? Was that the purpose?
In my life, I have gone through many things, from the rejection by my father, the lack of love in my
family, to generational chains of witchcraft, abuse, loneliness, among others. After growing up and
knowing Christ, I believed that everything that had happened was forgotten, but then I faced the betrayal
of a church, domination, lies, deceptions, and much more. I did not have the confidence to tell anyone
what was happening to me, until God caused the box of lies to be uncovered. The last months in that
church were of clashes, meetings, disciplines, and shouts. In the end God allowed me to get out of there,
but without first having the rejection of several members, pastors, and those who were called to be my
friends. The only thing I said was "I do not trust a church again", and I felt that I had every reason
to stop worshiping God. I asked him many times because he allowed all that, but there was a silence on
his part, well at least that's how I felt it. For almost 2 years, I was trying to find a church but I
was not at all comfortable. I had put a barrier that would not let anyone approach me. I did not
believe them when they told me I love you, or God has a lot for you. In those moments, I wanted to
shout at them, "really and why did your God allow all of that?" But I better shut up and when I got
home, all I did was cry, complain, and I did not want to see anyone. That's when the enemy took
advantage and shouted to me that I was the guilty one, where my God was.
Finally, an answer came to my life. It was not as I expected, but it was what God used to bring me to a total change. A year ago,
in October, I had a panic attack. My body began to tremble and became cold, my heart was beating fast and my mind was full of
negative thoughts that increased my fear. In this time of so much uncertainty, God brought Renacer into my life. At the
beginning of the counseling, several wounds of the past were opened, but they were necessary to get to the root of what caused
the panic in me. They were sections of many tears, of unpleasant memories, but then they began to turn into answers, in the
hope that I could be free and become what God had called me to be.
He will always take care of putting the right people in the perfect time. Now I can tell you that I am in a church that I love,
surrounded by people who love me and I know that God has put me there.
Now thanks to Him, and with the help and wisdom of Estela (Renacer's counselor), I can say that I am free, and I can fly. And
still God keeps writing my story. I am infinitely grateful to Renacer as it was the bridge to my complete restoration.
Glory to God for that!
