The Land Called Beulah

Where God Turns Ashes into Beauty


The title of this blog comes from Isaiah 62:4 which says, “Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah, and thy land Beulah: for the Lord delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.”

A person’s greatest soul-winning tool is their testimony and a minister once asked me to write mine, believing it could help others. Therefore, through this blog I hope to encourage others (both Christians and seekers alike) through my testimony and thoughts on the Word of God and the church.


Side Notes:

Sometimes giving a testimony can be hard if it involves hardship in the past in instances like abuse. The purpose of a testimony is never to highlight the negative nor to throw someone’s past up in their face. God is a healer–THE HEALER–and forgiveness always abounds. It is never my intent to hurt someone with the past–only to offer hope to those facing the same struggles and to lead them to the Healer.

Also, because throughout one’s life so many situations are faced this blog can vary in topics. That said, the point is always to lead back to the one common denominator: Jesus, our Healer.


About Me: I am 28 years old, Apostolic Pentecostal in faith, and a graduate of Apostolic School of Theology. I live in a small city close to Seattle, WA (USA).

    Hi, I’m a UPCI member from Italy. I find your articles very interesting and I would like to share some of them through our youth magazine. Do I have your consense to translate them to italian and publish them? Of course I would give you credit for it. The articles I’m interested about are “Bullies in church. Are you one?” and “Why I left the Apostolic Church”. I do hope you give me permission to share it. Thanks you, God bless,

  2. Beautiful, we are to share our testimonies, I pray you great success. Proverbs 16:3-Comitt your work to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established. Be blessed exceedingly my friend.

  3. How can I share my Testimony with you? I want others to be able to read it and find hope when there seems to be no hope.

    • The best way is to start a page. They’re free and simple to make. Once you upload your testimony to it, you can come back and comment the link and I can read it. I look forward to doing so!

  4. Love this blog!
