This question lingered on the mind of Donna Teano.
Have you ever been betrayed by someone that you loved and trusted the most?
Was your pain so unbearable that it seemed as if life had already become pointless and empty?
That was what Donna felt when she discovered her boyfriend’s secret. She was heartbroken, but she found that God’s grace and love were enough to make her whole again.
Donna’s heart was full of joy when she was together with her “perfect and dreamy” boyfriend. She loved him so much that she put him at the center of her universe.
“He became my ideal man in terms of physical appearance, and he was always thoughtful and sweet. He always thought of my welfare. I dreamt of having a good family with him,” Donna admitted.
But her perfect little fairy tale was shattered when she discovered that he was cheating on her. When he left, her heart was so broken that she could not eat, and she cried herself to sleep.
Donna turned to alcohol to numb her pain, but it never gave her peace and happiness. One night, when she did not have anyone to drink with, she came across The 700 Club Asia on TV.
“Are you sad? Do you need prayers?”
Those words from The 700 Club Asia caught Donna’s attention, so she decided to try calling CBN Asia’s Prayer Center.
Although the prayer counselor did not know her personally, Donna felt genuine concern and love. She soon realized that it was God’s love that was shared with her.
Have you ever experienced a heartbreak like Donna?
Remember that only God, not alcohol or any other thing in this world, has the power to heal your broken heart. Through Christ, Donna found hope and purpose to live. She read the Bible, prayed, and joined a local church.
Donna received Christ as her personal Savior. As she grew deeper in her faith, her heart also started to heal.
Now, whenever she faces difficulties in her life, she knows that she has God by her side!
Donna did not only receive a brand new heart of hope, peace, and joy. Her heart is now full of generosity and service as well!
She started giving to CBN Asia despite having a tight budget. Because she experienced God’s help through the Prayer Center, she also wanted to be a channel of blessing to others.
Truly, God rewards those who honor and love Him. Blessings began pouring out to her. One of these is when she met an Australian boss-turned-friend who gave her a stable job.
Are you praying for the restoration of your broken heart too?
May you be inspired by Donna’s testimony of healing and joy! She learned to stop putting her hope on anyone or anything apart from God. After all, only He can fully restore her life!
“Jesus is sovereign. There is no wasted pain, hurt, or tear. When you surrender them to God, He will use them to expand His Kingdom and glory,” Donna testified.
You can experience God’s restoration too. Psalm 147:3 (ESV) says that “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Trust in His promises!
