An creideamh aig Suzie Roberts

[Suzie Roberts] Chan eil teagamh nach eil creideamh air a bhith air leth cudromach dhomh fad mo bheatha. B’ e Crìosdaidhean a bh’ ann am m’ athair ‘s mo mhàthair agus chaidh mo thogail ann an dòigh Chrìosdaidh mar gum biodh. Agus cha robh mi ach timcheall air ochd bliadhna a dh’aois no naoi bliadhna a dh’aois nuair a chuir mi m’ earbsa ann an Ìosa Crìosd. Agus le sin chaidh mo thogail anns an dòigh a bha seo agus bha e gu math cudromach.

[Suzie Roberts] Nuair a bhàsaich m’ athair cha robh mi ach ceithir bliadhna deug a dh’aois no rudeigin. Agus ‘s e hemophiliac a bh’ ann agus fhuair e droch fhuil agus chaidh AIDs air ‘s bhàsaich e air sgàth AIDs. Agus ‘s e an creideamh aige-san a thug neart dhòmhsa agus cuideachd tron t-suidheachadh a bha sin chaidh mo chreideamh-sa a neartachadh agus air sgàth sin tha e air a bhith gu math, gu math cudromach fad mo bheatha.

[Suzie Roberts] Phòs sinn bho chionn trì bliadhna agus bha fhios a‘m aig an àm sin gum biodh e gu math cudromach dhomh gum biodh creideamh gu math cudromach dhan duine a bha mi a’ dol a phòsadh. Agus a chionn ‘s gun robh cothrom againn ùrnaigh còmhla agus dol dhan eaglais agus bha e gu math, gu math cudromach. Agus nuair a phòs sinn ‘s nuair a gheall sinn gum biodh sinn còmhla tro dhroch shìde agus tro dhroch shlàinte cha robh càil a dh’fhios againn aig an àm a bha sin gum biodh sinn anns an t-suidheachadh taobh a-staigh naoi mìosan no rudeigin.

[Suzie Roberts] B’ ann aig toiseach dà mhìle ‘s a seachd (2007) a lorg mi cnap na mo bhroilleach agus chaidh mi gun dotair agus timcheall air trì seachdainean às dèidh sin chaidh mi dhan ospadal agus thuirt iad gur e aillse a bh’ ann. Agus tha mi a’ smaoineachadh gur e sin a dhearbh an càirdeas a bh’ eadarainn, eadar mi fhìn ‘s Mìcheal, agus cuideachd an càirdeas eadarainn agus Dia. Agus bha e dìreach cho cudromach gum b’ urrainn dhuinn a bhith ag ùrnaigh mun t-suidheachadh a bha seo. Bha e cho duilich gabhail ris gur e aillse a bh’ ann agus cha robh mi ach òg, na mo bheachd-sa! Agus bha iomadh rud eile a bha mi airson a dhèanamh ach b’ urrainn dhuinn bruidhinn mu dheidhinn, b’ urrainn dhuinn neart fhaighinn bho Dhia. ‘S cuideachd an seòrsa taic bho na caraidean againn anns an eaglais agus bha sin uabhasach fhèin math.

[Suzie Roberts] Tha cuimhne a‘m nuair a bha m’ athair tinn agus thuirt esan nach robh esan a’ ceasnachadh Dia air sgàth ‘s gun robh esan toilichte dìreach leis na bha, na bh’ aige, na bheatha agus tha mi a’ smaoineachadh gun robh, gun tug sin buaidh mhòr ormsa agus bho chionn dà bhliadhna nuair a thachair seo bha mi, cha b’ urrainn dhomh a thuigsinn, agus ann an dòigh bha mi a’ ceasnachadh Dia. Thuirt m’ antaidh “bu chòir dhut dìreach innse Dha gu bheil thu crosta, gu bheil thu feargach mun t-suidheachadh a tha seo agus ‘s urrainn Dha-san dèiligeadh ris. ‘S e Dia a th’ ann! ” A bheil fhios agad? Agus ‘s e sin a rinn mi agus fhuair mi neart bhon sin. Bhon bidh cuid a dhaoine ag ràdh “uill ciamar as urrainn dhut a bhith a’ cur d’ earbsa ann an Dia agus tha E, tha seo air tachairt dhut. Carson a tha thu a’ cur earbsa ann an Dia leis an t-suidheachadh a tha sin?” Agus bidh mise ag ràdh uill chan eil Dia air gealltainn nach bi dad a’ dol ceàrr. “Cuir d’ earbsa annamsa agus cha bhi dad ceàrr na do bheatha!” Chan eil e idir, idir a’ gealltainn sin, ach tha Ìosa Crìosd air a ràdh gum bi esan còmhla rinn tro na h-amannan duilich a tha seo agus sin a thachair dhuinne. Bha e duilich. Bha e cruaidh oirnn. Ach bha an earbsa, bha an neart sin ann agus bha an taic sin ann.

[Suzie Roberts] Tha mi a’ smaoineachadh gur e an rud as cudromaiche tron rud a tha seo dìreach a bhith a’ cumail a’ leughadh, a’ leughadh a’ Bhìobaill dhòmhsa agus iomadh turas bhithinn a’ faighinn dìreach rann beag a bha freagarrach air an latha a bha sin agus thug sin neart dhomh. Agus cuideachd na caraidean agam ag ùrnaigh air mo shon agus airson Mìcheal agus bha esan, tha esan air a bhith dìreach mìorbhaileach math, a bhith dìreach a’ toirt neart agus cuideachadh agus taic dhomh fad na dà bhliadhna a chaidh seachad. ‘S le sin tha mi a’ smaoineachadh gur e an rud as cudromaiche a bhith a’ smaoineachadh, uill chan eil fhios ‘m dè tha dol a thachairt. ‘S dòcha gun till e. Tha mi ‘n dòchas nachtill . Ach ‘s dòcha gun till e ach mas e ‘s gun till e tha fios ‘m gum bi an Tighearna a’ toirt neart dhomh bhon a tha E air sin a dhèanamh thairis air an dà bhliadhna a chaidh seachad agus le sin tha mi a’ dol a chumail m’ earbsa Annsan bhon a tha E air an t-uabhas de neart a thoirt dhomh rè nam bliadhnaichean a chaidh seachad.

Suzie Roberts' faith

[Suzie Roberts] There is no doubt that faith has been exceptionally important to me all my life. My father and mother were Christians and I was raised in a Christian manner as it was. And I was only around eight or nine years old when I put my faith in Jesus Christ. And with that I was raised in this way and it was very important.

[Suzie Roberts] When my father died I was only fourteen years old or something. And he was a haemophiliac and he received bad blood and he developed AIDs and he died because of AIDs. And it was his faith that gave me strength and also through that situation my faith was strengthened and because of that it has been very, very important all my life.

[Suzie Roberts] We married three years ago and I knew at that time that it would be very important to me that faith would be very important to the man I was going to marry. And because we had an opportunity to pray together and go to church and it was very, very important. And when we married and when we promised that we would be together through bad times and through bad health we had no idea at that time that we would be in the situation within nine months or something.

[Suzie Roberts] It was at the start of 2007 that I discovered a lump in my breast and I went to the doctor and around three weeks after that I went to the hospital and they said it was cancer. And I think that that is what confirmed the relationship between us, between myself and Michael, and also the relationship between us and God. And it was just so important that we could be praying about this situation. It was difficult accepting that it was cancer and I was only young, in my opinion! And there were many other things I wanted to do but we could talk about it, we could get strength from God. And also the sort of support from our friends in the church and that was terribly good.

[Suzie Roberts] I remember when my father was ill and he said that he didn’t question God because he was happy just with what was, what he had, in his life and I think that was, that that had a large impact on me and two years ago when this happened I was, I couldn’t understand it, and in a way I was questioning God. My auntie said “you ought to just tell Him that you are cross, that you are angry about this situation and He can deal with it. He’s God!” You know? And that is what I did and I got strength from that. Since some people say “well how can you put your faith in God and He is, this has happened to you. Why are you putting faith in God with that situation?” And I say well God hasn’t promised that nothing will go wrong. “Put your faith in me and nothing will go wrong in your life!” He is not promising that at all at all, but Jesus Christ has said that he would be with us through these difficult times and that is what happened to us. It was difficult. It was tough on us. But the faith was, that strength was there and that support was there.

[Suzie Roberts] I think that the most important thing through this thing is just to keep reading, reading the Bible for me and many is a trip I would get just a small verse that was suitable on that day and that gave me strength. And also my friends praying for me and for Michael and he was, he has been just marvellously good, just giving strength and help and support to me throughout the past two years. And with that I think that the most important thing is to be thinking, well I don’t know what is going to happen. Perhaps it will return. I hope that it doesn’t. But perhaps it will return but if it does I know that the Lord will give me strength since that is what He has done over the past two years and with that I am going to keep my faith in Him since He has given a lot of strength to me during the past years.
