No matter how famous you are, beautiful, intelligent, good in doing your craft, there will always be a point in your life that you will thirst to know Jesus more and to search Him more in your life.
Sazan Hendrix, a famous woman in social media- beautiful and stylish, is a woman who desperately searching for God until that day that God showed in her bedroom.
When she was 20 years old, she struggled about who she is and who is God in her life. She grew up in a predominantly Muslim culture. In her papers, she was a Muslim but never practiced its faith. She was completely lost that night that her identity crisis got worst. Everything changed when her Christian best friend, Stevie, challenged her to really talk to God. He said, “You know what, when you go home tonight why don’t you just ask God to reveal himself to you through your dreams?” Sazan went home that night and prayed differently for the first time in her life. She said, “I don’t know who you are… have you been there for me my whole life? Do you hear my prayers? Reveal yourself to me.”
That same night, she dreamed that she was in church and worshipping the name of Jesus. She felt the love. She felt the worship. She felt everything. She said, “I could see myself in those stands and my hands were in the air. I could see myself worshipping Jesus.” This experience of her was very amazing because she had never entered a church and experienced what worship is.
“When I had that dream, I know it wasn’t just a coincidence. I was about to step into the light after I felt like I had been in the dark for so long,” she said. And she totally felt better that time.
Two weeks after that dream, Sazan experienced prophetic dreams. She started to get to know Jesus more in her life through her dreams. Her parents were not happy about Sazan’s new faith. “Never tell us when you go to church because we don’t want to hear about it”, her parents said.
But what completely broke their relationship was when Sazan disobeyed the Kurdish tradition and married Stevie, her best friend. For years, Sazan endured painful silent treatment from her family not until they saw how the Lord changed Sazan.
Now, she was not just famous in giving beauty tips but she was also using her fame and beauty platform to minister to millions of people about Jesus. She just have this familiar advice- “talk to God!”
Indeed, God just wants us to be thirst and hungry for His presence. You just have to take the first step of talking to Him. You could never imagine how great things can He show you after opening your eyes and ears to Him.
