The Woman At The Well
This book is Deborah Armin’s story from the start. The reader hears about her abusive childhood, her disastrous relationships and her search to belong. Filling her life with everything from New Age to Reike to astrology, Deborah Armin tried it all before she finally turned to Jesus.
Having found Jesus, Deborah Armin realised “it was not enough to keep repeating the patterns of the past.” God can break our strongholds. We need to fix our eyes on Jesus and do life His way. Jesus brings freedom and life in all its fullness.
We need to listen to the right voices. “You’re a loser! You’re alone. You’re trash.” This is the voice of the enemy. God’s voice is always life affirming and He will never leave us alone.
Life is a spiritual battle. From a young age Deborah Armin realised this even though she did not know God. “A threatening, sinister power intent on harming me, and a watchful, overshadowing presence equally intent on protecting me.”
Deborah Armin refers to God as an unknown God before she knew Him. Deep down she realised the power of prayer before she even knew God. “I prayed to the God whose name I didn’t know, whose existence I couldn’t prove.”
Deborah Armin knew her life was empty but just touching the Bible bought her a peace. She did feel “overwhelmed by the absence of God.” God was not absent in His silence. He is always with us whether we feel Him or not.
On My Way Home is a powerful personal testimony that reveals how God turns lives around. As He did in the past, He does in the present and He will do in the future. God is in the business of restoration.
Bless you Deborah Armin and thank you for sharing your story.
