Because I often went out to perform my duty, my husband and mother-in-law and sister-in-law jointly attacked me, abusing and persecuting me in every possible way. And they said, “Even if you had a horn on your head, we would take it off. We won’t give up until you stop going out.” At first, relying on the strength given to me by God, I went out to perform my duty as before. Later, they found that their abuse and persecution could not deter me from believing in God, so my mother-in-law paid several sorcerers to persecute and curse me in a superstitious way, to let me lose my mind and die in a month if I went out to perform my duty again…. Under their attacks, I, who was feeble-minded, was no longer so strong as before and couldn’t help weeping bitter tears. I fell into passivity.
When I was in agony, God’s words gave me strength: “Do you know that all the circumstances about you are permitted by me and are arranged by me? See this clearly. Satisfy my heart in the circumstances that I have given you. Don’t be afraid of this or that. The Almighty God of hosts will surely be with you. He will be your rear guard and shield.” “With me as your rear guard, who can block your way?” Yes! The Almighty God is my rear guard and my support. I must never yield to these devils! Then, I came before God and prayed earnestly, “O Almighty God, now I am faced with such a difficult circumstance. I believe there must be your good purpose in it. I’m willing to satisfy you in this matter, but my stature is so small that I can hardly overcome it. Help me and give me faith and strength, so that I can uphold the testimony for you before the devils and satan.”
It is wonderful to say that, one week later, my mother-in-law suddenly got a terrible headache. And over 20 days later, on her head grew a small horn. It pained her so much that she yelled loudly all day. My husband was frightened and said to her repeatedly, “Don’t you restrict her anymore, and don’t you ever curse her again. You cursed her but you yourself suffer.” My mother-in-law also said, “I dare not curse her again.” From then on, she no longer persecuted me, and the whole family no longer hindered me from performing my duty.
In this matter, I truly saw God’s wonder and almightiness and saw that all things are in God’s hand. And I experienced that as long as one relies on God with a true heart, God will make a way out for him, for God is the symbol of the highest authority. My heart was full of thanks and praises: God is so almighty! God’s deeds are so wonderful! All the glory be to the Almighty God!
