My journey with Jesus started at the age of 21. I was young and inexperienced, had just moved to the United States, did not speak much English, was terrified, numb, homesick, culture-shocked, and later depressed. I knew Jesus, but during this time, I started seeking Him and the purpose of my life by fasting and praying. I could not understand the purpose of the long duration of the painful circumstances surrounding me.
I had recently experienced the most significant and embarrassing rejection in my life. It broke me into pieces and left me in confusion, rejection, and despair. I cried for days, did not want to come out of my room, and forced myself to eat and go to work. One day during lunchtime, I was sitting in my car crying and asking God the “Why” question.
I wanted to know why people had hurt me the way they did and why I was left alone to pick up the pieces. At that moment, I felt the truth hit me as lightning struck the Earth. I began to utter, “What is wrong with me? What is wrong with me that I allow all these people to come and hurt me like this?” Every morning after that, I prayed, “Lord Jesus, change the things in me that need to be changed.”
My search began. I was searching for the answer to my question, “What is wrong with me?” My “Why” changed to “What?” God started showing me as I was searching and praying for the answer. Instead of crying and wasting my time thinking that the world was the wrong place for me to be born, I changed my thinking and started working on myself. The healing journey began when I started taking classes and reading books on healing my mind and emotions. Oh, it was a sweet and sour season for me! It is painful for someone to see their mistakes let alone to have the courage to correct them.
This desperate time made me an orphan’s heart because I felt so alone. I felt like I did not belong anywhere until I received my healing. My journey of healing is why I am passionate about seeing peoples’ orphaned hearts healed and restored.
I have a dream for the School of Hope to be a place where the brokenhearted receive hope through teaching and counseling to heal!
