Sherly Isaac was born and raised in a Christian
family in India. She was brought up under strict
discipline, as her parents themselves were very
strict regarding religious formalities. They insisted
on her going to church every Sunday, reading the
Bible daily and praying every day.
But she wasn't good in her studies. She even
struggled to get passing marks in her exams. Not
only that, her home was a broken home. They always
fought with one another. It was such a hell that
it is very difficult to explain in words. She
was totally broken, dejected and had no hope in
her life. She wondered whether any good thing
would ever happen in her life.
During her school days, almost every day, she
wished that it might turn out to be the last day
of her life and that the evening might not come
so that she need not to return home. How her soul
longed to meet with some accident and die! But
it never happened. Many a time, she thought of
committing suicide. But whenever she thought about
it, a great fear came and she left that idea.
She had no interest to live in this world.
Meanwhile, something happened in her legs and
doctors could not figure out what the problem
was. She was unable to walk due to terrible pain
in her legs. She was hardly able to even move
from her bed. Doctors gave her double doses of
the painkiller, but it never helped her. Only
the misery intensified.
Then one day she heard a Christian radio program
in which the preacher said, "If you die today,
would you go to heaven? If you are not sure about
going to heaven, repent from your sins and invite
Jesus in your life. And He will forgive all your
sins and give you assurance of heaven."
She prayed the sinners' prayer with him (Lord
Jesus, I am a sinner, please forgive all my sins
and wash me with your precious blood. Please give
me assurance of heaven that if I die today, I
may reach heaven.) As soon as she prayed this
prayer from the bottom of her heart, a great peace
came into her life. Though her circumstances did
not change immediately, still she got great peace
and joy in her heart.
She started feeling as if all the miserable conditions
had left her. In due course, her family members
also accepted Jesus in their lives, and their
lives started changing. Her home became a sweet
home. God removed all the bitterness from their
hearts and helped them to love each other. Not
only that, God exalted her in her studies. She
took many exams after that and passed all, with
flying colors. God also healed her completely...
Her life was not miserable any longer. God has
blessed her and her family members.
