How I came to CHRIST

(Nicole Brangini):



After 14 years of a toxic marriage and a painful divorce that I never should’ve got into in the first place and honestly should’ve left much sooner, someone I had known since childhood when I was in a vulnerable stage of life and didn’t know the LORD came back around telling me he ALWAYS had a crush on ME. At first I thought, ” There’s NO way! You’re kidding yourself if you think I’d EVER give you a chance” But he stayed persistent. It was about 2013 I began fornicating in this VERY toxic relationship. I knew deep down what God’s word said yet I had justified it, I had said the sinners prayer a million times, yet told myself I didn’t believe all of God’s word. I had cherry picked which verses I wanted to believe and which ones I didn’t to satisfy my own personal choices and desires.

It got to the point where I wondered if I would ever get out of this relationship. I had knives pulled on me, my shirt ripped off me, hair pulled, was drug out of the car in front of my children in the middle of an intersection while people we’re video recording and yelling from their vehicles. My son tried to get out and defend me. People in the streets would try to defend me but we’re too scared of him. He told me if he EVER caught me with ANYONE else he would hurt him and me. I would wake up in the middle of the night several times with visions that I would end up dead; there’s a lot more to the story I don’t find necessary to talk about.

I also got violet with him, stabbed him in the stomach with a pen trying to defend myself because that’s all I had in my hand, punched him in the jaw etc…But him being 6’5 300 pounds and me 5’0 there wasn’t a whole lot I could do. After going thru this for 4 years off/on I knew I didn’t want to live like this anymore. I was desperate to get away and tried SEVERAL times before but everytime I tried he would come to my work, my home or he would convince me he had changed, etc. But it wouldn’t last long and his jealously and possessive behavior would take over. I even changed my number about 10 times.

About May/June of 2017 I had had enough when we we’re living together and I told God, “I surrender Lord, I surrender my whole life to you. Please help me get out of this situation!” I prayed without ceasing. I told God I was tired of living for myself and that I was ready to give him ALL of my life, just not a small part.

About June or July 2017 he and I went to this church concert and he got angry over what I was wearing and started making a HUGE scene in front of everyone at the church. I was so embarrassed. And he looked at me and told me, “I’m going to cake you right in the face!” I told him, “Go ahead DO IT!” This lady in front of us grabbed her children and got up and moved several seats in front of us. I was so humiliated. I just kept praying. I told him after that he had to leave until he could control his anger.

He NOT only moved out of the place we we’re staying in, out of my city, out of my state but God moved him out of the country to where he can no longer have access to me EVER again. Sometimes I’m shocked when I think about how God answered my prayers in ways I could NEVER have imagined. He continues to answer prayers and to show up in ways I NEVER could imagine.

I’m so grateful for the mercy and grace he has shown me. I’m grateful to be alive. I will serve him for the rest of my days. I now read the bible, repent and seek his face daily. I will NEVER live outside his will EVER again. If it’s NOT from him I don’t want it. I seek to obey, honor him and give him ALL the GLORY!!! GLORY TO THE RISEN KING!!! THANK YOU JESUS FOR YOUR PROTECTION AND FOR CHANGING MY LIFE!! 🙏🙏🙏
