The past year and 7 months, since I started the ALI journey, has been a very difficult and tough journey. The enemy, the evil one, tried everything in their power to prevent me living out my purpose, which is to help and inspire the broken and lost people in my sphere of influence to draw closer to God in order to realise their worth. If I can name a few experiences I underwent in this time: Last year April I was attacked spiritually, whereby from the Thursday of Week 1 of ALI, that I woke up at Rock Lodge, until the next week Thursday when I woke up in hospital; for that whole week I was not myself, giving weird and random messages to people, I could not sleep or eat for that week and I received a lot of visions. I fought those attacks with the Word of God, my bible, that was open the whole time at Ephesians 6v10-20 which reads the armor of God, as well as praying on my knees. When I woke up in hospital in my right mind, I woke up with sores on my knees from all the praying. This year May I was attacked physically, whereby I was diagnosed with breast cancer, a rare tumor called phyllodes tumor, which is only diagnosed in 1% of all breast cancers. I had to undergo a mastectomy and I lost my right breast. After 25 sessions of radiation treatment, at my follow up session in Sept, it was noted that the cancer spread to my right lung. I underwent a very painful operation whereby the whole middle lobe of my right lung was removed. This lobe was sent for tests, and all tests came back with no trace of cancer.
glory to God who healed me! If that was not the outcome, I would have had to receive
chemotherapy at this stage.
For those that attended the celebration evening last year, will remember my story on how I
built an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father, by leaving all worldly and earthly
things behind eg. Facebook and Instagram and by rather going to church and studying and
meditating on His word. I would just like to reiterate it by saying that I would not have
handled all the attacks, or even survived the way I did if I did not have this relationship with
God. The enemy tried, but he failed, as I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens
me. God truly carried me though this very dark and difficult period I went through. Psalm 23
and Psalm 91 were my light during this time.
I am very happy to finish this chapter of my life, and I am extremely excited and cannot wait
to fully live out my purpose, and thereby helping to expand and to grow God’s Kingdom.
