While visiting the UK for a few months this year (I am English but living abroad) I began attending The Well Quiet Days with some friends.
While attending these days the Lord began to show me that I had been harbouring some issues from my childhood with regard to never feeling loved by my mother (she also told my younger sister she never wanted her, which hurt me too).
My mother used to leave me with a man who my parents were friends with and he abused me.
It was a complete shock when this came up as I felt I had completely forgotten about this but obviously the Lord knew it was still there and needed to be dealt with. This had caused me to have problems within relationships and within my two marriages. I was always seeking approval from people and even my children.
Since attending The Well over a period of weeks and discussing my problems with the wonderful volunteers and being prayed for by them, I am so much more at peace with myself. I don’t need to look for approval from anyone now; I can just be me and know that I don’t need anyone’s approval any more.
I know God loves me and that is the most important thing now in my life and this could not have happened without the prayers from The Well and Christ who strengthens me.
I thank the Lord for Anne Hibbert and her wonderful team of volunteers and that the Lord called them into this ministry. They are making such a difference in people’s lives and I pray that people will continue to visit this healing centre and give them help and support in whatever way they can.
