KFJ23 – The Journey – Communism in Poland and Following Jesus Christ

In this episode, I share some parts of my life in Poland during communism and how childhood experiences affected my life. I also share my testimony of Jesus Christ and how my faith has been a strength in different challenges of life.

Recently, I had the opportunity to travel to Poland. As I was walking through the beautiful streets of Poland and reminiscing about my life as a young girl, I felt such deep gratitude for where I grew up, the history of my ancestors, their journey, and where I am today because of them. I am thankful for my faith journey that began in Poland. I am thankful for my father and his belief in freedom, and I am grateful for my mother, who kept her strong faith in God.

“Jeszcze Polska nie zginęła,
Kiedy my żyjemy.
Co nam obca przemoc wzięła,
Szablą odbierzemy.

Marsz, marsz Dąbrowski,
Z ziemi włoskiej do Polski,
Za twoim przewodem
Złączym się z narodem.”

-To translate:
“Poland has not yet been lost
while we are still alive.
Whatever has been taken from us by violence,
We will take it back with a sword.

March, Dabrowski’s march,
From the Italian countryside to Poland,
With your leadership,
We will reunite with the nation.”

Throughout my life, I have learned that when I trust and choose to follow the Savior, I can see His hand and His miracles. Even though I might not understand everything, I know He is watching over me.

““I do not know all things, but the Lord knoweth all things which are to come;””

At the conclusion, I share another song I wrote, titled “A Follower of Jesus Christ.”
