Praise Report: Gospel Of Grace Heals A Single Parent’s Heart

I have struggled with my daughters’ rebellion for the last four years. A year ago, my elder daughter even moved out of the house. Despite numerous efforts to rescue them from bad influences, they were futile.

I tried pleading, threatening, reasoning and even had cold wars with them. Other times, I reminded my children of the sacrifices I made to bring them to Australia for their studies despite being a single parent. However, nothing worked.

Seeing that it was unfruitful, I then tried the soft approach. I tried to be gracious and kind in spite of their rude behaviour and disobedience but I ended up angry and disappointed. I was sending them mixed messages and they were as confused as I was! I was a wretched mess!

There were days when the spirit of condemnation was so strong and real that I thought of killing myself. Only then did I understand first-hand what I could not understand before about how condemnation kills.

One day, I finally told the Lord that I couldn’t do it anymore and asked Him to take over parenting my daughters. My breakthrough came when an old friend gave me Pastor Prince’s teachings and I started my grace-marathon! I listened to the sermons day and night, and finally surrendered my children to Him.

As I began to practise God’s unfailing love for me and my daughters, I partook of the Holy Communion almost daily and thanked Him for the gift of righteousness. I was reminded that Jesus is THE SOURCE of grace and the only power of love that can bring any tired, weary and wayward child home. I meditated on Isaiah 53:4 and proclaimed that as surely as He has borne our grief and sorrows, all hurtful and painful memories have also been taken up at the cross.

One day, I invited my elder daughter to watch a powerful sermon with me. After the sermon, we shed a few tears and even partook of the Holy Communion together for the first time as mother and daughter! Hallelujah!

It has been three months of resting in God’s supreme grace, enjoying His love and knowing that all will be well. My eldest daughter told me two nights ago that she is moving back to stay! I am so happy and believe God is speaking to her heart! I have learnt that what the devil meant for evil, God will turn around for our good. Thank you, Pastor Prince, for sharing the gospel of grace that has set captives free! Amen!

  • I am having difficulties w my daughter as well and would like to receive the Gospel of Grace for myself. How can I get it?

    • Nolan Milnes says:

      Jesus very simply said to cast all of your cares upon Him because He cares for you! Through what Jesus did at the cross, He took out every obstacle between you and His desire to absolutely pour out His grace on you! Jesus LOVES you and your daughter, and He wants to reconcile the two of you and love the two of you where you are at. He is a restoring God. Because of what Jesus did at the cross, no sin or fault can disqualify you from receiving His grace. Just believe in and rest in what He did to bring access to His love to you, and let Him love you! Just believe and allow Him to work in your life. There’s nothing you have to do but believe and rest! Praying for you and your daughter!
