Rosi

Rosi joined The Sisterhood in March 2018. Through God - the connection and support of this group has niggled at her heart to return to her Heavenly Father. Her testimony is powerful and honest.

Psalm 1:3

They will be standing firm like a flourishing tree planted by God’s design, deeply rooted by the brooks of bliss, bearing fruit in every season of their lives. They are never dry, never fainting, ever blessed, ever prosperous.

About a year and a half ago my life was turned upside down. It was as if the carpet had been pulled right from under my feet. I felt so much hurt, betrayal, anger, abandonment that I stopped going to church, reading the word, or having a relationship with the Lord. I remember questioning whether He even knew who I was and if He did, then why did he allow this to happen to me. It truly was the breaking point for me. I was so devastated and broken.

Deuteronomy 30:22-23

“You’ve seen with your own two eyes everything God, your God, has done to these two kings. God is going to do the same thing to all the kingdoms over there across the river where you’re headed. Don’t be afraid of them. God, your God—he’s fighting for you.”

I think back on events in my life that have caused me so much pain like my ex husband cheating and walking out, losing my best friend to cancer or being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia. All of those things made me cling to His every word, seek Him out and find comfort knowing He was there for me.

Somehow this last event was different, it distanced me from all i knew, who I was and it made me sad but I couldn't seek him out...I didn't know how to.

Then a few weeks ago my friend Diana Lopez sent me an invitation to join this group, The Sisterhood. I have to admit, I wasn't sure at first but something in me was stirring. The Lord had begun to work in me.

I started listening to christian music again and found so much joy reading the posts from other sisters in the group. The bible study has given me something to look forward to daily. It has allowed me to stop whatever is going on in my life, make sure I've set some time aside and dive into His word. Reading what other sisters have received from the word daily has been encouraging and eye opening for me, allowing me to see God speaking through someone else's eyes. I truly feel blessed by the bible studies.

Recently, I couldn't sleep and I reached out to my niece, Gabby. We chatted about my recent diagnosis of Agoraphobia and her depression.

Luke 17:6

The Lord said, “If your faith were the size of a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Dig yourself up and plant yourself in the sea,’ and it would obey you.

All of a sudden I was on fire, the old Rosi talking to her about the Lord and how he waits patiently for us to come back home, about the mustard seed, God's grace and mercy and so much more. After an hour she told me how hearing about my depression made her sad because 'the world deserved my presence" and in that moment I realized that I mattered.

These days I wake up with a pep in my step and a joy in my heart because I am loved.

I am loved by Jesus.

I am loved by my family and by this new group of sisters - The Sisterhood.

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Eternal, “plans for peace, not evil, to give you a future and hope—never forget that.
