'I asked God to make me invisible' - Caroline's Story 1

I distinctly remember asking God as a child, “Make me invisible”. After years of bullying at school and at home, with the constant grief of passing loved ones, I grew up to fulfill that childhood prayer.

While I was a Christian and even pondered a life of devotion to the Lord, it was still a “quiet faith”. We talked often but I never expected God to change anything. I had a very traditional Christian background so when I started listening to Rhema about 8 years ago I found some of the music and teaching a bit overwhelming. For a while I just tuned in to the morning devotionals. I didn’t really think that the hope that I heard in the music, the teaching and even in the presenters and some of the things they were talking about could actually work in my life. I never really believed in his blessings working in my life. I figured that this was my lot in life and was incapable of seeing life in any other way.

After working in a position where I was THE ONLY Christian, life took an even darker road than I thought possible. He broke everything apart. Every time I thought I couldn’t get lower, He just worked a little bit more saying “no we’re not quite done yet.” He had to scrape everything away until I learned to be completely dependent on him. Long story short, I left that position and I now work under a Christian family where we listen to Rhema all day and it’s ok to “talk God”. I really feel like God has been helping me through some issues and even some issues that I didn’t think I had, God has really been

“I’ve gotta say Rhema,  from your presenters, your stories, movies and last but not least of all your music. You’ve brought God’s light into my life, amplified it and shown me He has a better way to live. While I don’t expect to have plain sailing all the time, I thank you Rhema for bringing Hope into my life when I thought there was none, and for bringing me into a new relationship with the Lord.”

speaking to me through some of the Christian music I’ve bought and listen to now. I’ve changed the way I look at what I’m listening to and instead of just listening for a funky little tune it has to mean something. When I’m a bit down, I’m reminded that I may be down but I’m not out, he is still with me he is working to bring me good and he generally wants good in my life.

[Rhema] brings me hope, it reminds me there are plenty of times I have a brilliant day and God’s with me, no problem, the sun is shining and everything’s beautiful. On other days I’m reminded that I may not be where I want to be but God is there, God is working in all things. There is a verse in Micah that says “Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light.” (Micah 7:8) I am waiting with expectation to see how God will work in my life.

“I’ve gotta say Rhema,  from your presenters, your stories, movies and last but not least of all your music. You’ve brought God’s light into my life, amplified it and shown me He has a better way to live. While I don’t expect to have plain sailing all the time, I thank you Rhema for bringing Hope into my life when I thought there was none, and for bringing me into a new relationship with the Lord.”

If you’re thinking about [supporting], I certainly did, there were a couple of years when I was too reluctant to take that step and you certainly need to think about what is right for you, but I have certainly found that Rhema has helped bring God’s love back into my life when it was very hard to find. 

Rhema is always there with their hope, their testimonials and hearing how they are helping regular people, there is nothing fancy, most of us are just everyday people but he’s still working. He’s still working through Rhema and being able to have a platform to hear that in the Hunter is unbelievable because I’m sure there are plenty of places that don’t have that opportunity. It’s lovely to get behind a local company that is bringing that message locally.
