“God set me free from anger!”
Extreme anger destroys lives. It causes physical and emotional damage to the person, and those around them. Prone to explosive bursts of aggression, anger completely consumed Cemre’s life. Doctors and medications didn’t help, so he turned to a book…
SAT-7 TÜRK viewer, Cemre, contacted us to share how God transformed his life.
“I was a very angry person. I was neurotic,” he recalls.
SEARCHING FOR HOPE
Desperate to get some help, Cemre travelled across Turkey and spent a lot of money, visiting various hospitals and consulting famous doctors. Unfortunately, none of them were able to free him of his anger.
“Every time I took the medication I was given, I would be in a near unconscious state,” Cemre remembers. “They would numb me so much that I wouldn’t be able to leave the house and go outside. They didn’t make me better.
“I tried different ways of getting rid of the anger when the medication didn’t help. At that point I was unable to contain or control it anymore. I was smashing the windows and breaking down the doors at home. Nothing helped.”
A TURNING POINT
The intervention of his friends, however, proved to be a turning point in his life.
“My friends told me to give my illness to Jesus Christ who is God. To give all my burdens and anger to Him, and that He would heal me. I didn’t really believe them at first, but they wouldn’t stop telling me to do it.”
Cemre finally started to read the Bible, and as he read it, he began to pray.
“I prayed and cried out to God for nine days. I begged for Him to heal me. And I was healed, God healed me!”
Cemre was finally able to live a life free of anger, and he is full of gratitude for what God has done in his life. “Jesus was able to do what the doctors couldn’t do because I believed in Him wholeheartedly. I’m not on any medication anymore, but I keep my old medications as a reminder of what God has done.”
Cemre also shared a hymn he wrote:
“Christ, My Saviour, you healed my illness.
You have become my medicine, Jesus, my Lord.
I learned forgiveness, humility and loving others from you.
You gave me everything.
I live with your Holy Spirit.”
Please pray for SAT-7 TÜRK viewers like Cemre, who share their wonderful stories of transformation with us. Pray that God would continue to touch people’s lives and that SAT-7 TÜRK programs would be able to help viewers with their questions about God and Christianity.
