First I‘d like to Praise Yah for giving me strength and courage to write my testimony. I thank Yah always for redeeming me from my sin through Yahoshua who He sent. I can’t imagine my life now without Yah and would like to share my experience and how the Father led me to His truth.
I started out in my childhood growing up in a church until age 12. My family I grew up with believed in the Christian doctrine even though we did not go to church every Sunday. I never liked church and I hated dressing up and listening to the preacher yells all the time. I never understood what the preacher was saying. During this time I was a very shy child so I didn’t question anything about the church.
In my teenage years, I started to struggle with low self-esteem and was failing in school. At that time I did not have a good relationship with my mom and there were some struggles at home. So I begin to feel empty, lonely, and depressed because I never felt I fitted in. I got caught up in wanting to be like the world and wanting negative attention, plus watching too much B.E.T. I became promiscuous which led to me making wrong choices to get money.
At this time I would pray, but was not into reading the scriptures or seeking Yah and Yahoshua. As a result in living a dangerous lifestyle, bad things happened. There were times when I attempted to change my life but because I did not know Yah, bad things occurred. Like being raped and being involved in mentally and abusive relationships with men that were way older than me because I thought I could find love with them and they paid attention to me. I became homeless and fell right back into this deadly lifestyle.
I finally got tired of the abusive relationships, but I was continued to work in the entertainment industry. At the age of 21, I started to really hate what I was doing and this is when I actually begin to read Yah’s word. I still did not know His name at this time and was receiving false doctrine from the preachers on TV. I eventually left the industry at 22 years of age because I was fed up and did not belong there. Yah had been calling me to Him this whole time and I finally started to pay attention.
I attempted to go to college for a semester, but I did not fit in and still felt like something was missing because I did not know who I was. At the end of the summer of 2007, when I was 23yrs. old, Yah showed me that I was a Hebrew Israelite. I had move into a new apartment with no TV. but Yah told me not to buy a TV. to seek His face. I diligently stared reading the scriptures for myself and researched on the internet. Yah revealed His name to me and Yahoshua’s name. The more I kept seeking and staying humble, the more He revealed.
At the end of December 2007, Yah led me to the hebrewisraelites.org website to His servants who knew His truth. All I could say was Hallelu Yah! Ever since then I have been on this walk, was immersed in May, and got rid of that old person. I am blessed to be a part of Yah and Yahoshua’s family. Also, thanks to Yah, my mom has accepted this truth and we are closer than we have been in the past. We have been able to let the past go and move forward in our lives. I hope my testimony helps others out there who are seeking and gives them strength no to give up. I especially hope this lets any young girl or woman know it’s not too late to change your life, repent and turn back to Yah. He is merciful, and has not forgotten about you, His door is always open.
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be open to you.”
