I grew up with little head knowledge and zero heart knowledge of Jesus. God was someone who was way up in the sky for me to call upon when times were tuff or I was in need of something. As I was getting older and started going to High School I began getting involved with anything and everything that was against God’s plan for my life including drugs, alcohol, porn etc. There were also some deep routed insecurities, like homosexual thoughts, in my life that led me to filling my days with the pursuit of “success” and my nights with the pursuit of sin. The only things that truly mattered to me were money, power, and possessions. I quickly learned the lesson that none of these were satisfying and I became depressed and started to have frequent suicidal thoughts.
During this journey my sister had been saved while visiting a church during her college years. She and my brother-in-law witnessed to me a few times over the years. Sadly, the drugs I had been using would wipe away any meaningful conversation that we had. It took getting to an extremely low point in my life to get down on my knees and cry out for God’s guidance. The first time I prayed with a earnest heart was the moment I knew we had an amazing Creator who was listening to me and cared about the struggles I was going through. It took about 6 months for me to recognize Jesus as my Savior and completely change my life around.
God has continuously opened doors for me to share my testimony and lead other Christians in their walk. I’v been given the ability to lead a Christian group that we have at CCRI for the past year and i’m looking forward to the upcoming semester. He has blessed us with growth and protection.
Our group can always use prayers! I have uploaded a picture from See You at the Pole during the fall of 2017.
