Five years ago, I, Leena Lalli, made one of the best decisions of my life to get baptised and to follow Jesus all the way.
To be honest I didn’t know what that really meant and didn’t know I was going to do it. However, I knew God had a plan and purpose for my life and I was determined to find out what it is! So I made a decision to give him my life and follow Him all the way. It's a bit like a marriage; I’m in this no matter what!
Previous to this, I had a comfortable and lucrative job, I lived in one of the most sought after Sydney locations close to Darling Harbour, I had a large selection of international friends, endless holidays and international travel, yet there was a deep emptiness I couldn’t shake off. No matter what I did, I wasn’t satisfied by the money, luxury and worldly comforts that society and culture told me I would love. Often, I ended up being dependent on drugs and alcohol as a weekend mood elevator or way to get through the stressful sleepless nights. Yet, I knew there was a reason I was born beyond having fun with family & friends, working, paying bills, travelling and just living a month to month pay check.
I had grown up following Sikhism and wasn’t looking for a new religion or a new God. However, upon on a visit to friend's church, I had a supernatural encounter with a relational loving and empowering God, which I had never experienced in 31 years of prayer and worship as a Hindu / Sikh. During the worship at church, I fell to my knees crying with no head knowledge of what was happening. It was deep heart cry out. I knew I had encountered a true God and He was telling me I was not alone and He loved me.
Since, then I have had healing and restoration with my estranged family, I have been healed of depression and anxiety, I have completed 3 years at Hillsong Bible College and I am now travelling around across the world as a missionary, praying for people. Over the past 12 months I have seen countless people have there own supernatural crying loving moment with God, as well as mental illness and physical healings.
If you had told me 6 years ago when I going to the Sikh Temple, I would have laughed; however, God can do anything and if you give Him a chance He will do everything.
As a missionary, I volunteer and depend on the kindness of God-sent strangers, who quickly become friends/ family. They help me with finances, food and travel and trust me! It’s amazing to see how God's intended humanity is able to serve and love each other. By no means is it easy with language and culturally barriers, yet I’m more content and full of joy than I’ve ever been in my entire been. The world will tell you to get more stuff and do more, then you will be happier. That’s not true! True happiness comes from knowing you belong to a God who loves you unconditionally. No matter what you do, you are enough and loved.
If anyone is sick of living the same old life or depressed or hurting or bored, and wants to know if there is more for you, I want you to know there is!
Your path is uniquely handcrafted by God and He formed you with incredible gifts and talents, your life is so much more than you can ever imagine.
Can I encourage you to reach out to me or simply say what I said, “Jesus, if you are real and you have a plan for my life, show me!”
He won’t let you down. He will show up in signs and so-called coincidences. He will show you that life is so much more than you can imagine. He will show you that you are loved, you matter not because you are doing great things but because He created you and you are His child. You are enough!
God loves you and has great plans for you.
If you need any prayer or have any questions, please message me. I would love to be there for you!
