TALK ABOUT A TESTIMONY!
My name is Cheryl Reed and I was invited to an event called Powerful Journey by a co-worker, Mrs. Phyllis Jenkins for April 1, 2017. But as the day was approaching, I began to have second thoughts about going. When the day came, I decided I was not going, but my husband said you need to go with the ladies it might be great conference. I began to get dressed and be on my way. When I got there everything looked beautiful, but I was still wondering what is Powerful Journey with the Theme: You Know My Name But You Don't Know My Story! As I sat anxiously waiting- It all began. The ladies one by one, began to tell their stories. As I sat there with tears flowing down my face, all their stories were touching especially Ms. La Nita. Her story brought back memories that I thought I had let go or maybe suppressed it down. As I listened, more tears flowed down my face. I was saying to myself, this was some of my story as well. I began to ask myself, "Can I break my silence now?" Mrs. Phyllis had us to branch into different classes. I went to LaNita's class, where she opened with prayer and then introduced herself again. Then she began to ask us to write down a secret that no one knows but you or maybe you told someone and still holding on to it. This is your moment to break your silence. I wrote my secret, but while I was sitting there with my secret, everything begin to come back and I realized I hadn't broken my silence. As the class went on she asked if anyone had questions, I raised my hand in tears and begin to explain to her that her story was some of my story; in which I thought I was over but I'm sitting here and it is still here. How long did it take you to get this out and over? She replied as soon as I broke my silence in which you just did and gave it to God, I became free from this monster that had me in bondage. She then gave me the tightest hug and I release the tears. From me opening up several other ladies also opened up and begin to speak out thanking me for saying something to help them open up. When the class ended she had us to put our secret at the cross, representing the cross of Jesus and leave them there and never pick them up again. Thank you Jesus! Mrs. Phyllis, thank you for inviting me because I never would've known this monster was still destroying my life. Ms. La Nita, thank you for letting God lead you to tell your story to some women who thought they had broken their silence, but really had only covered it up.
April 1, 2017 has changed my life forever! Each story was touching. Be Blessed!
