This is Nichele and this is Her Story ! Hi! My name is Nichele.
I was an emotionally and verbally abused wife. I am still a wife to the same husband. How? Why? Read on.
My husband used to be a very mean and hostile man. He had no regard for how he spoke to me. Some of the things that he said to me, you would not say to your worst enemy. I was at the point of leaving. I was speaking to a friend regarding my marriage and how I was ready to file for divorce. She directed me to a prayer call that is held on Monday nights. Mind you, I had not given my life to Christ. I always believed in God and Jesus. I never gave my life to Jesus.
That night, I called into the line. This was an interactive line. There were women giving testimonies and making prayer requests. I listened. Then there was a teaching and a prayer that was prayed that moved me from sitting on my bed at the beginning of that call to me being on my knees in tears. I decided that night to give my life to Jesus. The women on that line, that night prayed for me as I wailed and wailed.
I then began to pray for my husband. That God would change his heart and attitude. I began to go to church. I would invite him every time and he would say no. One Sunday he was up and dressed and he told me he was going to church with me. I started to see a change in him that I had never seen. He became nicer and kinder. He became gentler and more loving. He became the man that God wanted him to be. He became the husband I needed.
I thank God for changing him and for changing me. I did not realize until that night how much I need God, how much Jesus loves me too. I am so thankful for the relationship I have now with Jesus and my Heavenly Father. It is the best relationship in the world!!! That’s #herstory so what yours ?
