Guddu-Testimony of Garment of Praise instead of a spirit of Despair (Isa.61:1-3)
My name is Guddu, I am from the Himalayan mountains, when I came to this Home in 1999 I didn't know Jesus. My parents had died long before I had known Jesus. My mother used to tell me that I was born as a normal boy without any physical deficiency. I was about two years old I had a boil on my back and the doctor while doing operation by mistake cut my spinal cord, and ever since I lost sense in my legs. My legs started to twist abnormally I was unable to walk; I used to crawl on one knee, because of which my legs got deep cuts. We were so poor that we could not even able to buy one skate board. I used to fall sick always because of the wounds in my legs. We had so many problems at home. I had no hope in my life; I was thinking why did I take birth to see so many sufferings.
One day a Pastor came to my house and felt pity on me, then he sent me to hospital, and I was brought to this Home, but though I was given love and care, still then I was not giving much attention to what they were teaching to me. I came to know Jesus in 2001, but soon one more mighty wind blow over my life, my elder sister who meant so much to me died in her twenties, oh I could not take that after my parents she was everything to me. Her death made me hard as stone, and I almost started to believe that there is no God. I lost my faith; I thought I am all alone in this world. There is no one who cares in this world. But as I was leading a lonely, depressed life I began to realize that there is Some Body who is with me. I began to read the Bible again and Jesus became the Lord of my life. He became the hope in my hopeless life. I always thought there is no value in my life, but now Jesus showed me that He has given His life to save me. I am precious. God filled me with His Holy Spirit. Oh, the depth of my depression I can’t tell but now the Lord has given me a new life. I have no value without Lord Jesus Christ. He is my Lord and Saviour. I know God has plan for my life. I am thankful to Sis. Ellen and team for bringing a nice skate board for me last July. I am still using that, it is in very good condition even today.
I will write about my hobbies and more about myself later.
