Living in The Light

I was born in a rural town and grew up there until I graduated from a junior high school. My parents were farmers and devoted their whole lives to farming. When I lived in the hometown, I helped my parents’ farming, collecting tomatoes, egg plants, cucumbers, potatoes, watermelons, and strawberries, etc. They were pure, diligent, innocent people without knowing how to cheat, lie, and steal. After the junior high school, I moved into a bigger city for a high school. Until the junior year of high school, I was never …

17 Felony Convictions, 15 Years in Prison to Podiums and Pulpits

A no-one from no where special. Addicted to drugs and drink by age 14 and graduating to felony crimes by 15. Traveled from 15 to 20 when I was arrested for a DUI. Wanted in several states, law enforcement extradited me over 5000 miles in handcuffs and leg irons as I faced hundreds of years for Armed robbery, burglary, credit card fraud, possession of drugs and DUI. After 13 years inside more than 12 different prisons and penitentiaries,  I was once again considering murder when guards informed me that my …

Victory in Christ over All Fear (Fear Part 2)

“You Have Not Received A Spirit That Makes You FearFul Slaves. Instead You Received God’s Spirit When He Adopted You As His Children.” Romans 8:15 The Lord is stronger then any fear. The dominating fear that went from terrorising, attacking, ruling/dictating my life is more or less completely gone. History. It’s so great it’s unreal to me that this for most people is the norm and just something simply taken for granted. Being in a busy town, tons of people, this was unfeasible just a few months back. But it’s great. Truly …

As I Sowed, So I Reaped… and More!

A few days ago, while on my way back home, I stopped at a computer store. As I came out, a beggar waved at me and said “Don’t give me money. Just buy my child a bottle of milk.” I agreed, and crossed the road to buy a bottle of flavored milk for her daughter. I asked her to cross over too, and handed it to her and drove home. Now read what happened next… My wife asked me to go to our neighboring aunt’s home with our son, as that …

My First Testimony

I was a 14 year old teen, struggling ever since middle school. Beginning of my 8th grade year, I would quickly give away my heart to a boy. I gave up many firsts with him including my first real kiss, and eventually my virginity. He would get me into trouble that summer, and me getting the wrath of my father, (which I have forgiven him for), and getting taken out of the school (I had been going to for 8 years). I lost my friends, my social life, the door …

Exams? God Provides for the Faithful

I’m writing this testimony of a true miracle that occurred for me through the Grace of God. I’m sure it’ll provide comfort and hope for those who are distressed by their upcoming exam results just like I was back then. God Bless To start, I was always a bright kid when I was young. I used to get top marks in the class and I was essentially the “class geek.” Moreover, I was raised by a devout Christian family therefore I was raised in an environment where God was always …

Salvation Testimony Pt2

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” The above is the Bible verse that comes into my head when I think of the night I felt the Lord save me from the anguish I was in. *See Salvation part 1* I actually remember thinking the same night or the nights before that seeing Jesus – being saved would be the best sight and experience in my entire …

Freedom in Jesus Name

When I was a kid I always struggled with myself in such a way that I didn’t know my true identity in Christ. I played soccer and actually I was pretty good at it, however my parents never came to watch me play. I was bullied in elementary school and I wasn’t clever at all. My last year in elementary school, I had a very low grade for entrance to high school that I was intended to go to the lowest of the lowest school type. Because I had a …

God Showers Blessing of Love, Builds Faith

God loves you even in the details of life. I testify to it below… This is the monsoon (rainy) season in India. I usually take my umbrella with me to work even if it’s not raining, as the clouds may surprise you. Just the other day though, I was about to leave my house without an umbrella when it began to pour. The Spirit of God reminded me that I was forgetting something! I picked up my umbrella and went out. As soon as I sat in the autorickshaw, the …

Needing Advice for a Confused Broken Heart

Hi there, I am just seeking some guidance, as my boyfriend of 3 and a half years broke up with me 7 months ago.  He broke up with me due to me telling some lies about my financial situation.  I know it was wrong and have asked god for forgiveness and I have felt peace over it.  I am a devoted Christian and I know God answers prayers.   After we broke up I was very devastated.  I cried and I prayed ALOT.  My ex was still in contact with me, we’d …
