Every few months from here forward, we will select a few testimonies to post. Remember, your testimony is not who you were before you met Jesus. That's your history. Your testimony is who He is to you today, how you are encountering Him and the transformation that is occurring in your life because of that.
These are just a few of your stories and testimonies from 2017. (Some have been edited for length) Please continue to share your testimonies in the "comment" section of each BTV episode. They are a wonderful source of encouragement to others and to us!
Have been sitting under your mentoring for 2 years now. What was so new and hard to wrap my mind around at first (because of old man thinking and religious performance mindset n living) has now become my new man language.
Holy Spirit met me in a time of great confusion and negativity and brought me into the place of Rest and peace in the Truth that sets free.
I’m seeing evidence of His transforming work from the old to the new..,a time of freedom, RELEASE, and favor. It is like 2nd nature or I should say 1st nature now. My thoughts are so embraced by goodness and truth and love.
It’s like He used these two years to reset my foundation in Him and the full truth of the Good Good Good News. How I Love Him. There’s no on like Him. Beautiful Jesus. Thank You Father and Holy Spirit!!
I really love this mentoring series. I can't say enough about the importance of being mentored in the truth like this! I have been a Christian for 13 years but spent 10 of those years having an identity crisis that had me miserable....I just knew there had to be more . Praise God there is!
I want to thank everyone for commenting too because I really got so much from reading the comments!
“All things become available in this place”... so beautiful! As I go to bury my momma and my husband chooses to change his career of many years I’m filled with hope for my future. I’m no longer scared. No longer clinging to the past or to things that used to give me a semblance of security.
I’m seeing the next upgrades and I’m so hopeful and thankful. It’s been the greatest gift I’ve ever received to be mentored by Graham. To live in peace and love is priceless. God is good to me.. all the time.. and I can rest in his grace❤️🌈
God's doing so many things in me right now, believing for more "through" me. Practicing rest as my weapon indeed in the midst of all externals. Christ in me,me in Him.. has been the largest truth that has opened up soooo much territory.
Encountering unchanging presence and started some amazing crafted prayers of thankfulness, identity.. oh so many things. This community and mentorship program has really been, well, Brilliant! Holy Spirit butterflies with every listen!
This year we'll be taking some greater ground from the enemy (cracks knuckles) yup!
I have a much stronger understanding of the love God has for me no matter what! I’m much more confident in that the Holy Spirit really does his job in me, and oh so thankful Jesus made this all possible for me.
Since I first discovered this brilliant way of thinking, I can absolutely say that I am being changed daily into my truest identity in Christ. This is definitely an ongoing amazing process. I have grown in joy, in peace by leaps and bonds over the last 4 yrs.
I am no longer the sad one neither am I the anxious one. I love thinking and living brilliantly.
I’ve been a believer for so many, many years, but it wasn’t until your teachings that I began to be whole, understanding so much more about relationship with our wonderful Godhead. The three are magnificent.
I hope for bigger encounters, revelation, in this coming year and am eternally grateful to you Graham and all who help so patiently the pilgrims that God brings your way.
I am so thankful that I invested in BTV at the beginning of 2018. Going forward with this word is encouraging and hopeful because I am not the same person that I was in the beginning of the year.
Looking forward to mastering No negativity and embracing my promises on a new level. I have a greater awareness of the gift of righteousness and how big grace is in my life. It’s been a marvelous journey of being set free from old mindsets and religious thinking.
Up until two years ago I had no concept of the kingdom. My church and seminary both treated as if it was something to come later.
One day as a brand new pastor I asked Holy Spirit to reveal the truth about his word and the gospel. He immediately began to teach about the kingdom and put teachers in my life who were immensely helpful in creating a Kingdom world view.
What you have blessed me with are the tools to live according to the kingdom and the father’s amazing destiny for me.
My thinking is changing and you say things that are like what I'm experiencing. Holy Spirit is connecting the dots of my encounters with Him from throughout my life. I recognized His voice in your teaching and narratives, and was at once shocked and yet at ease that this is The Way.
I literally stop my car, get out and pray on the spot, pray into the earth face down, dance in the road, cry to the sky. It happens because I do not restrain. Isn't this so exciting?
My life is forever changed. My desire to see His kingdom come has been renewed! I am so full of expectancy about what God is going to accomplish as I partnership with Him. I have stepped into a new place, a new position in Him. From grace to grace, and glory to glory.
My wife, Vicki, and I are watching one of these sessions during our breakfast 22 minutes together on tv instead of...instead of 'the news'. She is a teacher and I am an artist. Having the good news under our belt and in our spirits before she faces students and before I go to the studio is much much much better than the 'world news’.
My personal transformation has been so great and always expanding into all areas of me that I can’t start to put it in writing. I started a Thanksgiving Journal to cherish my abidings in conversations.
I’ve had 20 years of being born again, but am growing now… connecting the dots but with no lies and negativity.
I am finally encountering God face to face and the peace and joy of going through daily life now is indescribable no matter what kind of circumstance.
I am in awe of who God really is and in the knowing that my Lord on earth is Holy Spirit. I could not have Holy Spirit as my best friend in these past 20 years .
In 2017 I immersed myself in content, bookending my day with different series you have created. My life “became new,” and I decided in 2018 I would add in becoming healthier physically and financially.
I was soooo expectant and energized, but somehow I began to gravitate into checkbox Christianity, and out of abiding in Christ and the identity HE established for me. Impatience, anxiety, and dampened hope we’re obvious symptoms.
HE has drawn me back into HIS arms and a “realistic rhythm” of receiving HIS love and basking in HIS goodness rather than striving for self-improvement. Resting while still moving forward arm in Arm💕
Thank you BTV for the multitude of ways you’ve been used to inspire encounters with JESUS.
I got so excited when I understood the flow and the ebb... I used to believe that the flow was all there is, or at least all that should be, and the ebb was like being sent to the bench because you didn't perform well... but by understanding the importance of the ebb it keeps me in peace, knowing and believing that I am being grounded in the new man in a different area of my life.
I know how it is when we don't understand the ebb, it may feel like you "need to do" something else in order to go back to the flow, but both are beautiful and equally important.
One is the Much-Loved Child and the other is the Developing Fully Mature Son... One is the learning and one is the abiding and becoming...
The rhythm of ebb and flow in learning is starting to become more comfortable to me as I Trust His Love for me. I am relaxing more in the learning instead of fear based thoughts of not getting it and such. He knows my heart is to focus on Him and learn what He has for me today. 💗
I rest In His ability to keep me on track and quicken my spirit. Thank You King Jesus for being so Trustworthy and available to me.
Wow I have been Rocked into His Kingdom like never before, I am learning to soak in His Grace Peace Where I can rear His Truth that has a sound like no other.
My True Identity in Him in His in me. No more 18inch drop for me I live in the Word because HE is the Word and He alone brings into knowing Him.
Thank you so much for the mentoring series... I’m so full of gratitude for what I have learned I can’t stop the tears from flowing. I know He is setting me free from so many things in my old man to embrace the new freedom in Christ.
I feel He is circumcising heart not with pain, but with correction of all the lies I believed about Him. How I love my Lord for doing this through me.
It has been a prayer for so long and in one day He has done it all. Forgive me I’m not making myself clear. It’s through tears of joy I’m writing this.
