THINGS CHANGED DRASTICALLY FOR MY FAMILY!
I’d actually heard about The BUD Family and Mama Lizzy. In fact, I’m a fan of her stories as they always inspire me. So I joined The BUD Facebook page to always receive notifications.
The first 6 months of 2021 were really rough for me- no food, no money, shame, disgrace, debts, and it was so overwhelming.
Then, on the 30th of June 2021, I was thinking about a lot of things and also questioning God on the next thing to do and why He was not interfering in my family problems with sighing and tears.
I’d never heard of Juicy July actually. But that afternoon while going through my Facebook account, I saw the notification from BUD about the Juicy July fasting and prayers.
Being overwhelmed, I made up my mind within me that I’d join the next day. When I got home that day, I told my younger sister we were going to fast and pray for 31 days but my sister’s reaction was somehow. When I saw that, I told her, it was not by force but as for me, I was going to join and I was waiting to see what God would do.
I also said ‘It’s not kuku like we’re feeding well before, so, instead of going hungry, why not fast and cry to God?’.
That hit her and she agreed.
God really helped us as we journeyed out in ‘carving out’ that last year. We didn’t even tell our parents anything, but we kept trusting God and praying. But, around the 26th of July upward, the devil made things so hard that there was even nothing to break. My sister cried and all I told her was, ‘The devil already knows he’s lost that’s why he’s shaking us’ Thanks to God He saw us through the 31 days.
After July, my sisters, things changed drastically for my family. My Dad who hadn’t received contracts with good pay for a while began to receive contracts upon contracts worth millions and thousands!
My mum’s shop had been shut down for close to 15 years, but the Lord reopened it for us.
My two siblings that were seeking admission, got admission and God paid their school fees.
God blessed my business so much it even amazes me.
We paid up the debts bringing disgrace to us. We stopped buying on credit and it became the other way round- to the extent that some people began to say it around that we did rituals. They did not understand that it was the God of Juicy July that did all this in my life and family.
When I told my parent about the fasting and prayers, they were surprised and since then they’d been asking when we would do another one, lol. Right now, it’s everybody in my family that is observing the program. I bless the Name of the Lord for all He’s done for me and my family, what He is doing and what He will still do.
May His name be exalted in Jesus’ Name.
EDITOR’S COMMENT: Praise the Lord!!! Our God is faithful!
We have been receiving tremendous testimonies from the last Juicy July program and even the ongoing ones. We will start publishing them as the Lord enables us. May yours not be missing here in Jesus’ Name.
Let’s rejoice with our sister here whose family, the Lord turned around for good! May their testimonies never turn to prayer points in the Mighty Name of Jesus! Amen!
