I felt led to share this testimony with you all, so I pray it will bless you and speak to your hearts today!
I want to start off with a short prayer:
Father God, we just boldly and reverently come to Your throne today. Father, we thank You for another day to just worship and glorify You in all that we do. I pray that You order all of our steps today, Lord God, and that we would be Holy Spirit led in all that we do. I pray for everyone reading this blog post today, Lord God, that You would just touch their hearts with this testimony, Lord God, that it would bless them in some way, Lord God. We praise You, we thank You, we adore You! Thank You for hearing and answering our prayers today. I ask all of this is Jesus’s mighty & Holy Name, Lord God. Amen & Amen.
Whoa! Man time flies.. I could have sworn that just yesterday it was 2013.. Nights where I would be out clubbing, drinking and sexing men who I thought I could have a future with. I was torn, I was lonely and I was afraid. I thought I was living the life, making it big in life. What I thought was the truth, was a huge deception of the enemy. Now I know I’ve share my testimony before and you’ll find it >> HERE << if you want to read more on it. It’s not my full testimony but its at least 80% of it.
Back to this blog post. So as I said, I was the wild girl.. Couldn’t nobody tell me NOTHING. I thought I was born again, but I was saved and headed towards my way to hell (Hebrews 11:6 and John 3:3-4). I had a form of religion but denied the power thereof (2 Timothy 3:5). I confessed Jesus like it was my business. I honestly and truly thought I was going to go to Heaven. But you see, even the demons in hell believe that Jesus is Lord of all and that He died and rose from the grave. The demons TREMBLE at Jesus’s name.
Then it hit me like a ton of bricks.
It’s not just ENOUGH to proclaim Jesus as Savior of your soul and then live any kind of way that you want. That’s religion. We must have a on-going relationship with the Father, daily seeking His face, reading and studying His Word, talking, walking and praying with Him daily and truly live a repented life that is the complete opposite of what we once were BEFORE we got saved. God is calling us to live completely opposite to this world!
We must boldly, fearlessly and unashamedly live out the true gospel of Jesus Christ! Anything contrary of this, is a lie straight from the pit of hell itself and must be bound in Jesus’s name and thrown back down to the grave where it belongs! (Ephesians 4:17-24)
When I rededicated my life to the Lord back in February of 2013, I tell you all the truth guys, I did NOT think that I would make it this far. I thought that I would only last a couple of weeks. That I would just proclaim Jesus over my life for a couple of days and then go straight back to my former ways.
God had a way bigger plan for me than I had for myself and I see it manifesting daily in my life and all I needed to do was one small act of obedience.
Look where I am today! I am lost in my King Jesus! I couldn’t care less of the things of this world, they no longer interest me!
I used to be a severe alcoholic. I could down vodka, henny, patron, rum, and whiskey all in one sitting and still be legit to do whatever I needed to do. I flat out told God that I would continue to drink and smoke until He removed the desire from me. I remember on June 17, 2013 on my 21st birthday when I looked myself straight in the mirror. I was drunk off of wine and almost in tears.. I cried out to Jesus “I can’t do this anymore! I can’t drink anymore! I have no desire to drink anymore!” and from that day forward, I never drank anything else.
There are still days where I get the urge to drink, smoke and head back to my old, former lifestyle. There are days when I truly just do not feel like seeking God and some days I just don’t because I let my feelings sometimes conquer me. There are some days where my hunger for Jesus just isn’t there, when I get overwhelmed by life and don’t even feel like worshipping the King of all kings, even though He deserves every minute of my praise.
There are still days where I feel like throwing in the towel.
There are still days where I feel like just giving up.
There are still days where I just don’t trust God.
There are still days where I doubt the plan that God has for my life, that it’ll actually manifest in my life.
As if God was a liar. As if God were man that HE SHOULD LIE. As if what God says, won’t come to pass. As if God changes what He says minute by minute to fit societies current circumstances. As if God’s truths and promises changed. As if He hadn’t done it before.
Yet, He is still God. He is still in control. He still loves me and you with and endless and infinite love. He is the same yesterday, today and FOREVER.
Today, my public declaration is this:
I promise never to give up on my Father. I promise to boldly and fearlessly proclaim the TRUE gospel of Jesus Christ with out watering it down to make someone ELSE feel comfortable, because we ARE talking about peoples souls here and I AM HELD ACCOUNTABLE, regardless of the persecution I receive. Because, truth be told guys, we are closer to the Kingdom of God returning than we actually realize. Things are changing in the Spirit realm and it is real soon going to shift into the physical realm (it actually already has, but soon the power is about to be TURNED UP!!!!). This is not the time to give up! This is not the time to throw in the towel! This is not the time to goof off! This is not the time to live like the world! This is not the time to back off!
This is the time where we MUST press in closer to Christ! We must push away and rid ourselves of every single distraction that comes our way! We must bind up every lie of the enemy in Jesus’s name and send it back to the place it came from! This is the time where we will be fearless and bold for Jesus Christ! We must repent and turn back to Christ for the time is at hand where King Jesus is going to return! If there ever a time for urgency, it is definitely now!
Keep pressing on, church!
Keep running the race!
Don’t give up!
Don’t give in!
Continue to tap into the power!
Continue to worship and reverence God!
Keep pressing closer to Jesus!
Get sold out to Christ 100% right now!
Cry out to Jesus, He is closer to you than you think!
He has not and WILL NEVER leave you!
Our home is soon to come! Woohoo!
I love you all and I pray that this has blessed you!
