For a long time in my life I had become aware that deep within myself there was an emptiness that was not satisfied.
I had everything, husband, children, house, career and a business, but I still did not feel complete or happy deep inside of me.
In August 2003 my life hit rock bottom and for a month found myself searching for someone to help me. I finally thought that counselling was the only thing to help me.
I shared my problems with my mum, she suggested that I talk to my mother-in-law. That day came and she told me about the Alpha Course that started the following Tuesday. Me and my husband went along.
Half way through the course my sister-in-law was baptised and since that day my life changed. I was touched, blessed and my eyes became open, from then on I began to see what the Alpha Course was doing for me. I realised that the emptiness I felt was really a longing to know God.
Now the Lord is in my life, I am happy and complete within myself. I’ve found a whole new life, a peace I can’t describe, and a hope that I can’t hide.
Now I have meaning to life and once I understood this, I began to live with an unshakable certainty that everything I do matters forever, and that the Truth has changed my life for the better!
“God is our refuge an ever present help in trouble” Psalm 46:1
