Cortney’s Story

I lived my life trying to fill the emptiness inside. Anything so I didn’t have to feel. I was homeless for a year. I was in a physically, emotionally, and mentally abusive relationship. I felt unworthy of love, rejected and never good enough. I was a hopeless failure, a prisoner, a captive of fear!

I was contemplating suicide, alone and scared. I reached out to the only Christian I knew for help, and that led me to Life Challenge. Since coming here and receiving Jesus Christ as my Savior, the Holy Spirit now dwells within me! I’ve been redeemed! I am on fire every day for the Lord. I now belong. 

Being in the Word of God allows me to feel alive and helps me build a relationship with Jesus. I am no longer fearful and I’ve been set free from shame. I know what love is–and what it isn’t. I have an indescribable hope for my new life. Glory to God!

My favorite scripture is 1 John 4:18-19 “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. We love because he first loved us.”
