It's great to hear and read testimonies of how people found Jesus. Today I want to introduce you to Leanne. Read her story in her own words and then once you've read it feel free to ask questions or add any words of encouragement. Thank you...





I'm Leanne and I'm 32 years old and for years I was a New Age believer. What does that mean? I believed that the universe provided, that there were spirits, angels, spirit guides, past lives, and other unknown realms. I used to read Tarot, I was a 'psychic medium' (so I thought) I meditated daily, I had crystals all over my house. I owned a wand, I performed magic spells and chanted. The list goes on and on. I was basically stuck in my ways. I was confident in my belief system, I made friends with others who shared the same 'gifts' as me. It was a rabbit hole basically. One thing led to another. I suffered with anxiety and depression and no matter what I did it would never really ease for the long term. I had so many questions about the world. I always felt there was more to life. I wanted to know more, I was confused, lost and longing for something. The more I searched, the more I became unsettled and unsatisfied. Which led to feelings of guilt. Me and my family went through a really hard time, and I couldn't see a way out. It was then that my Mum started talking to me about her new-found Faith and her walk with Jesus. I listened to her with a very sceptical ear. At first I thought she was crazy and had been brainwashed by a cult! Honest truth right there. But I began to see an incredible change in her life and I was curious.


I went away and began to learn. I started to dabble in Christianity and thought I could possibly intertwine Christianity and the New Age. It never felt quite right and I couldn't understand why when I prayed I had no results. I don’t really know what I was expecting to be honest. But I wanted out of my situation. Things got worse and we ended up going from one bad situation to another one. It was right at this time that my friend who I'd been speaking to about an Alpha course, told me that they were going to hold one on Zoom (as the world was currently in lockdown, due to Coronavirus). I decided to jump in and give it a go. I had nothing to lose. I began to learn a little about Christianity and it was eye opening and the videos were great. I enjoyed my time on the course from the very first one. It was a couple of weeks in to the course and something huge happened to me. We were watching one of the videos about how Jesus died on the cross for our sins. When he called out the words "Father, forgive them they know not what they do." - Luke 23:34, I suddenly had a feeling of overwhelming peace and love. I knew that I had been given a fresh start, washed over me. It was in that moment I realised I had been forgiven for everything, everything that I had ever done in my life. I was forgiven. Jesus went to the cross and died for my sins. It is like nothing I have ever experienced before and I began to cry. I finally felt Jesus and realised what I had been looking for. There was a change in me straight away, but my situation didn’t change instantly. I decided that night I was going to pray. I was going to ask for help and to completely surrender and put it in God's hands. I did! I gave my complete trust to Him and I went to sleep. The next morning something happened, that would normally have pushed me, broken me and caused me to crumble. But it didn’t. It meant change! Change in a huge way and I was ready for it. Because I knew I was in the best hands. We ended up making a life changing move and haven’t looked back. Since finding Jesus, I have been transformed into a new person. It's happened gradually but it's been amazing. Gone is all the deception and confusion that came with the New Age. It feels amazing. I was saved from this world in April 2020! I have never known as much peace, freedom, love, joy and hope in a world full of chaos. That for me sums up my relationship with Jesus and I'm still growing. Christianity doesn’t always mean life is easy, but it makes anything possible and you are never alone. You discover who you were made to be. Christianity isn't a religion. It's a relationship. A relationship with Jesus. Thank you, Lord.
