Rhoda Grootboom’s Story

I had many, many painful chapters suffering from depression.

For years I found myself in a deep dark hole. It felt like soul was in a lot of pain. I ended up in hospital 2008 as I had a nervous breakdown. I was admitted for four days sleep therapy. For years I have been in and out therapy but God healed me. Prayer and my relationship with God has kept me on this journey.

A few friends supported me throughout my dark chapters. I had a setback last week but God lifted me out of that hole. Again a lot of prayers, prayers, prayers. What keeps me alive, what keeps me positive is my relationship with God. I have decided years ago to make a difference in people’s lives. To mentor and just to be there for the broken and hurt brought some much healing and perspective in my life. It brings so much joy when you can put a smile on someone’s face. To love the unloved, to touch the untouched and just to be there. This is my journey, the Lord has restored me. Yes, it visits me now and then but prayers and God has kept me going.
