My experience of Touch the Hem Workshop

“Well where do I begin to explain the wonderful gift that God has given me through Touch the Hem.  I was battling with situations at work and I came home from work one day and my Mom said she has received this notice about Touch the Hem and would I like to go.  To make her happy I said yes BUT if I don’t like it we will be leaving – she agreed.  One a chilly Saturday in June I got up very early and went off to Bryanston Methodist Church … and oohhh my goodness it was something else.  From the first moment of arriving at the car park to the end of the day I was in awe of what God was doing …there were two very special angles – or as I call them now my special butterflies.  There overwhelming love and attentiveness was something I had never experienced and the day was just a true blessing.  God opened my heart that day and at the end of the session we were asked to put our names down if we wanted to go to the follow up session.  I did but on leaving became nervous and thought maybe I shouldn’t have done it but will wait and see.  True to their promise I received a email informing me about the follow up (2 weeks after the session).  I replied I would attend and so started my journey.  I arrived with huge apprehension (I don’t like doing things like this) but was again greeted with such a warm sense of love and openness.  Everyone was so warm and welcoming it was amazing.  Keeping to myself all of a sudden these precious wings enfolded me in a hug and I knew it was going to be okay and that I was meant to be there but feeling wanted was a new experience for me – I have never felt such unconditional warmth and friendship as I did that day- from total strangers.  We have a wonderful lesson and God was really using the team to speak to me and this was confirmed when one of the participants got up to speak and what she needed to share was just for me.  Well then it was emotional and I wept and wept and wept and my special butterfly held me and comforted me and told me GOD LOVES ME UNCONDITIONALLY and it was wonderful.  Being an introvert and not wanting attention it was hard for me to accept the care and comfort from individuals – who I didn’t know – but the unconditional love, warmth and most importantly the feeling of not being judged was what allowed me to release my pain even more.   I cannot thank the team enough for all they have done for me God chose special women to carry this message and I thank Him daily for them – I have been renewed and am walking with Him daily – I still have difficult days but I know He is there and that there is One Person who loves me no matter what.  Keep up the wonderful work you all do and thank you for not judging me but for making me feel worthy again.  God Bless each and every one of you and may this ministry grow accordingly to his will.  Again from the bottom of my heart thank you for welcoming me, a stranger, so openly and non-judgementally you are all very special.”

I am talking to God more and more and still wrestling with issues but I never feel alone or that there is no one to talk to – sometimes I do wish he would answer me so I could hear but faith will help me.

Thank you for your support and prayers and love it means a great deal to me.

Lots of love and God Bless
