As the only employed member of her family, Martha had to provide for five people, including her mother, who had health challenges and her father could not find a job.
The money I earned was too little to provide for my family and my daughter. As a result, I ended up swimming in debt. I did not have money to get to work sometimes. To shift my focus away from my financial problems, I spent a day or two with the father of my child which led to fights with my mother. I later became pregnant with my second child, but my partner refused to take financial responsibility. We decided to go our separate ways. Things became harder in my life, and I cried most of the time because I felt even more burdened.
One afternoon, Martha was on her way back from work when she decided to attend a service in The Universal Church.
After the service, I spoke to the pastor, who suggested that I commit myself to God for my life to change. I attended on Mondays for my finances to improve, Tuesdays for my mother’s healing, and Wednesdays for spiritual growth. Barely a month later, my mother was healed from the pain in her feet, which were no longer swollen. During that month, my father found a job after battling to secure one for over two years.
My life slowly changed as I developed inner peace and the financial burden was no longer heavy because I had someone helping me. Six months later, the father of my children came back and took responsibility. We have a peaceful home, and I am committed to God because His presence changed my life.
