Since sometime the LORD had put in my heart to share my testimony withpeople so that whatever the LORD had done in my life will also encourageothers. It is said that a testimony is often more powerful than sermons. Here,as the LORD leads and gives me word to correctly express myself I decide tostart writing my testimony as notes. And, may this bring Glory to God as Ibring before you all the joy and sorrow, strength and weakness, freedom andfear and all the wonderful things that have happened in my life of 23 years. Ioften say that the LORD have done great things in my life but hardly fewknow about my life, my struggles and yes all the things that I haveconquered in the Name of the LORD. I have been a very reserved person andI don’t easily open up with others. I think some of the things that I’m going toshare even my best friends don’t know. Those were my hidden secretsbecause I don’t want anyone to know about all those things and pity me. Inever liked when people sympathized me. Within me, I thought I was astrong girl and with time I am really a strong girl. But, today I t believe Godwants me to share so that my life can be an encouragement for others.If I write my whole testimony in one note it will be so long that even I will getfate-up writing it and also people will get bored reading it. Therefore, I haveplanned to write in short notes with a particular topic and explain how I waswithout the LORD and how I am with the LORD. I have a very good memorypower so I still remember much of the things that happened while I was veryyoung.When it comes to starting my testimony, I’m often confused where to beganwith. Putting my life in the Hands of the Almighty, I’ll began from the time Istarted to know myself and my own emotions; back to the stage when I was5 or 6 years old.I was a born in Nagaland (a state in North-Eastern India). Going to past to therural village where I spend much of my early childhood was then very small
 
with very few houses, neighboring our village which was surrounded by highmountains were few villages almost 5 km to 7 km apart from each other. Thevillage where my family lived was also on a mountain slope so we would seeall the nearby villages and far off places too. It was quite a simple place yetvery beautiful too. There was greenery all around. The climate in those dayswas always cold and raining. You can say that due to all these things it stillgives my heart a cold feeling or loneliness.Back to that time, I didn’t know that the world was so big and there was somany nations, tribes, people, languages etc. My world was limited to thatsmall area where we lived having just a couple of shops and a high schoolwith two Churches – a Catholic Church and a Baptist Church. Since there wasno school in other village, children from four other village came to studythere and so during the first half of the day it looked lively; leaving the restpart of the day as deserted. My father is a teacher so almost everyone acrossthese villages knew us. Well, the other part is that the people of Nagalandare Mongolian and my family is Indo-Aryan so we were easily recognizableeven in crowd.My father moved to Nagaland in early 1985 (after getting married to mymother in 1984) to get a job in Government Sector in Education Department.Eventually, I was born in Nagaland in a small town called Phek in a Hospital.Well, my other three siblings were born in our parental house in Bihar(another state in India). May be because of my birth place of cold climate, Iwould always get sick if we visited other warmer states until few years backwhen God delivered me from sickness that would overpower me when Itravelled outside Nagaland. Now, I’m fine and living healthy in New Delhiwhich has extreme hot summer and sometimes extreme cold winter.I am second eldest or say third youngest among four children of my parents.Elder to me is a sister, followed after me is a brother and than the youngest
 
is a sister. My mother is a home-maker and she raised all of us alone awayfrom our extended family in that solitary mountain where outside world wasnot easily accessible. Praise the LORD for my mother and father efforts inraising us.I was a shy and introvert girl and I didn’t like talking much. From the time Ihave started to know my own emotions I can say that I became matured inmy thoughts even at an age of 6 years. I was not care-free and did notenjoyed my childhood like other children. I didn’t go outside to be with otherchildren to play. Only with my siblings I did whatever I wanted like playing,quarrelling, children fights etc… I became responsible sister beginning fromthose days itself. I loved helping my mother in her daily chores instead of going out and mingling with others. Sooner or later that brought the fearinside me to face the world. I was so much – inside the house – type of person that even after living in that small village for almost 14 years noteven my father’s colleagues and our neighbor knew me.I didn’t have any friend till my father sent me and my elder sister to aresidential school in 6
th
Standard, actually call it 7
th
because I completed 6
th
Standard before joining that school and in the residential school my batchstarted late and we got to study 6
th
Standard for three months than 7
th
Standard for almost 5 months. After that there were annual year for eachStandard. So, for the first time I had friends when I was in 8
th
Standard or sayabout 13 years old.In short, you can just imagine how lonely I felt all those years before that. Ieven didn’t share my emotional state with my family. I was just alone, lost inmyself, hating why I was born, not desiring to be alive, with a constantthought and a wish to die so that I could be set free from the situation I was.In other notes I’ll share the reason why all these thoughts came in my mind.But, here as I’m sharing about my loneliness though whatever reason be.
