Pamela Friesen Before and After

As a member of The Remnant Fellowship, MY LIFE HAS CHANGED! And I am so joyful because of all that God has done in my life! 
I went to churches all my life only to be full of anger, control, lust, pride, rebellion, anti-authority, disrespect and then became 105 pounds overweight. My back and hips hurt, lungs and heart were stressed, had hypoglycemic symptoms, stomach, gastric, digestive and circulatory problems. Our finances were out of control. Church and life in general was all about me. I finally learned true repentance and am here, alive today, set free from sinning, false religion, financial problems, the extra weight and the all the other physical conditions forever! I had tried many diets, starving myself with anorexia, exercise and weight lifting and knew nothing worked permanently. I always felt deep down, if I spent this much time on my body and not on what God wanted, it couldn't be right. The problem was that I didn't know how to DO what God wanted. Hopeless, angry and "broken," I found Weigh Down and Gwen Shamblin, and I finally found hope in God and learned how to DO His will! I was so happy to turn, repent and replace love for food with love for God...and I lost weight. What really pierced my heart was learning that my anger was sinful. I was mean, unkind, rude, obnoxious, impatient, and gruff. I loved getting angry. It made me excited watching people react to my anger. Anger drove my life. It was the underlying force that kept me rebellious, lustful, prideful, disrespectful, controlling and anti-authority. I was a horrible wife, and food had satisfied my anger. I began crying out to God for how to remove the anger from my heart. Suddenly it popped into my head, "You know what to do, you have done it with the food."Richard and Pamela FriesenI had done it; turn, repent and focus on God! I praise God for having so much mercy. I cannot believe it. It is a huge miracle of God to have the fruits of the Spirit instead of anger. John 5 tells about the man that Jesus healed and told him to "Get up! Pick up your mat and walk". In verse 14 Jesus says to him, "See, you are well again. Stop sinning or something worse may happen to you." I am well again and have stopped sinning. Whatever God gives to test my devotion to Him is only a chance to share in Christ's suffering and focus All Love and Glory on God. In Remnant Fellowship, I learned that it's ALL about God Almighty, obeying ALL His commands with a repentant heart, living for God and not my own selfish desires and following His son Jesus Christ. In this church, we are not begged for money, guilt-tripped or pressured to lead every committee. My desire is to show God I love Him by living pure and then being a part of the Body of Christ. All Glory to God that He has healed my marriage, my attitude, my life, my body and our finances. I now know how to live free from sin. There is no other way to live. Jesus said, "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life" John 6:63. I used to force a smile for attention to myself. Now I can't keep from smiling for attention to God and can't wait to have opportunity to say "Praise God!" This is life, truth and peace. I know how to DO the will of God. It's ALL about & for God Almighty!
