"One of these days, God will send fire down and destroy me!"
I am Leena Kapoor from India. The statement above was the most prominent thought on my mind every Sunday at church. Growing up in a Catholic household, going to church on Sunday's was a happy ritual. When I turned a teenager, it stopped being a pleasant experience. Fear dogged my steps as I walked into the church or went up to receive communion. My life was hardly ideal and I felt that God was just biding His time before He visited judgement on me. Getting back home, I felt powerless to stop doing or thinking of things which made me feel dirty. It was the same week in and week out.
In class 8 or thereabouts, I learnt of the Charismatic retreats for students, where the presence of God was felt tangibly. I began asking around for information on when and where the next one was expected. I had to wait for 3 long years before I got to attend one. I was so excited!
I listened to the message on the love of God for me through Jesus. In all my church experience I had not heard that Jesus' blood had been shed so that I could be forgiven and become God's child again. I confessed all my wrong doings and a lightness that I had never felt before flooded my being and tears came pouring out of me! Later in the retreat I received the Holy Spirit.
Since then, I felt a joy that was unquenchable! Patience, which I was short of before, became second nature to me. My performance at school improved dramatically and I had several miraculous supernatural experiences of knowing how to answer difficult questions and face difficult situations.
God is my constant companion and I love to spend time with Him and experience a knowing on how to deal with life, no matter the nature of the challenge. I am an accomplished trainer in the field of Education, and the Lord Jesus never stops influencing the people that He puts in my path.
I am still learning about better and better ways to tell people about Him and His unstinting love.
