My Testimony Of Faith

August 29th, 2005

I would like to take a few minutes out of your time to share with you a brief summary of how my life changed. To tell this story correctly, I must start from the beginning. Many of you know me and for whom that don’t , I would like to introduce myself, my name is John Hall, I was person just like you, getting up everyday doing my daily routine, living pay check by pay check, and trying to satisfy the ones I love. All these things are hard living in a world that shows Betrayal, Backstabbing, Personal Gain and etc…

I was living my life worrying of what tomorrow or the next day will bring along my way. My life was happy on the outside but in the inside I was burning up with sense of emptiness. It’s like when you play a puzzle game , and you get down to the very last piece then you realize you can’t find it, that feeling was how I was living on the inside. I was living my life with that one piece missing and it was eating me alive every single day, but nobody could tell it.

For the days that went by I tried to substitute the emptiness with playing video games, partying, and going out with women, but that only satisfied the void for a brief period of time. Then I soon realized what I was doing was only making the situation worst. There was this little voice in the back of my head that was saying over and over “call upon the name of the Lord! . “ Then one day after a difficult day of agony and pain, I finally said “Lord help me!?

Then that next day I figured out that my Brother -In- Law accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into his heart, and when I was setting there hearing him confess everything that he has done in his life in front of all these people. Then all of a sudden I can feel the Holy Sprit convicting my heart and I got down on my knees and I started praying and confessing to the Lord everything I have done in my life and I am lost with out Him and I want Him in my life and I would like to live the best as I can by representing The Heavenly Father.

After a extensive conversation with the Lord, I open my eyes, I felt like a new person, the music I listened to I didn’t listen to anymore, the games I played I didn’t play anymore, and so on. I realized that all those long hours playing video games, that I could have spent the time with the people I love like God, Family, and Friends. God is number one in my life Today, Tomorrow, and Forever.

I know the long road a head is not going to be easy but at least I will have the Heavenly Father and Jesus with me to talk me through it. The Heavenly Father and Jesus are my best of friends, I talk to Them about almost everything. I tell Jesus secrets because I can trust that He will not tell nobody. I stop putting my trust in man and pointed it to God, and Jesus.

In this world I realized that there are two different categories of people. One category of people believes on Luck, they base everything on luck like O that’s just luck or your lucky. The other category of people believes that everything happens for a reason. Everything happens according to Gods Plans.

In this world I noticed that people are scared of each other or they are walking around like they can take on anybody. I used to be like that, I used to walk around like I could take anybody on, or some cases I was scared or feared of them. Then when I found the Lord , and I realized that I should not fear of what man can do to me , but Only Fear God.

Ever Since I accepted Jesus into my life everything feels better I fell more relaxed knowing that God is watching over me Today, Tomorrow, and Forever. That emptiness that I felt is now filled up with the Holy Sprit and I long to strive for God.

  5. JZ Says:

    If anyone can help me out a bit.I’ve accepted Jesus and told him of all the sins I’ve commited, but I never actually confessed my sins to anyone else. Is this alright?

  6. Hen Says:

    victory, I had prayed for you. But I believe the root cause maybe the problem to your sin. I am not sure. Or maybe you did not apply actions enough? Pray for the Root Cause and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal it to you. It could be even before or after when you were born? Do pray and Bind that root cause in Jesus’s name. You also have to do your part. Throw away every single thing that leads to your Lust such as copies of pornography or anything from mild to extreme provocative elements that you have. The Lord desires us to submit to him fully. Your Faith followed by your actions shall lead you to be free from Bondage.

  7. Name Says:

    Victory,

    I am christian and do lust for women and engage in some other sins. The good thing about GOD is that he/she/it looks beyond our sins and see our work. We all (preachers, teachers, church folk)have sinned and will constantly fall far from the glory of GOD. Even in the bible it basically says that there is no distinguishment between sins. I don’t necessary think that being gay is the right way to go, but its no different from what we all struggle with from day to day. Remember that even your thoughts can deceive you. Bro, be happy, and continue to praise GOD regardless of whether you are gay or not. If GOD can forgive a killer, I’m pretty sure that he can forgive you as well

  8. Jim Says:

    JZ, you say you accepted Jesus and confessed your sins. Was this done with deep repentence and guilt. Remember salvation is the supernatural work of the Lord in your life. If you say you accept Jesus and you do not feel a change in your life you are not saved. Speak to a reputable preacher who wants to get you to heaven and not just increase the church membership. God Bless and protect you in your journey.

  9. Princely Says:

    It is all about us human beings, I can and would tell you about my past if I felt led by the Spirit to do so, but God has once again closed this door to the public. If you read the HOLY BIBLE you will find all your answers from God and not get caught up with mans opinions or doctrines they are all wrong. The Bible is the MIND of God, satan, lucifer, (the devil). He is the author of all confusion, he has come to kill, steal, destroy, and to take our souls away from God. This is a soul sickness we are dealing with. We up-set the God Head when we deny the power of the Holy Spirit and of the supernatural. The Angels are also there for us always. Jesus is our savior He alone can defeat these powers that are tormenting us. God is all Powerful. And the Holy Spirit is are most Important weapon to face OURSELVES. I have no answers for you except what happened to me. I let GOD in. Deny yourself pick-up your cross. Remember who the Judge is GOD Alone. If You Want It and Really Mean It. The POWERS of Heaven is at your Command. This is what Jesus Died For, Let’s stop CRUCIFING HIM. He has all power and Authority on EARTH and in Heaven. But satan is the God of this World and has a lot of practice o0n how to keep us defeated. God loves you. He sent His only begotten Son to die just for you!It is all about us human beings, I can and would tell you about my past if I felt led by the Spirit to do so, but God has once again closed this door to the public.If you read the HOLY BIBLE you will find all your answers from God and not get caught up with mans opinions or doctrines they are all wrong.

    I went to this confrence called DCLA a couple years ago. Many of you might have heard of it during that time i was a small group leader cause of the lack of adults helping out. so the first day was a get to know your own group day then the next day everything more or less fell into place. And by the end of the week i figured out that god may have thrown that at me for a reason cause by the end of the week god called me to ministry.

  13. Emmy Says:

    thank you for your testimony, it has encouraged me a lot. may the Lord, our God be with you and bless you abundantly.

  14. daisy Says:

    thank you so much for sharing that! bless you! :)

  15. kristin Says:

    All who have commented and posted. Get back to the basics: The Bible is the infallible Word of God. Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father. The Holy Spirit is our present help and leads us and guides us into all truth. The Bible is our instruction guide. He who the son sets free is free indeed. If you are sinning, sin no more, repent dust yourself off and move on. Stop encamping the mountain. Yes, you will have to cast down every imagination that exalts itself against the knowledge of God. The Body of Christ has been weak for far too long, stop giving the devil credit, he is only a created being just like you. When Jesus dies for our sins, He took (snatched) the keys from hell, death and the grave so that we can live victorously. Stop being defeated. If you have a testimony Tom, share it, that is why you ent thru the test. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. God is not a she/it, God is sovereign and is Spirit, He is LORD. Know what your saying before you say it, get into the Word of God. His people perish for lack of Knowledge and the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. Stop being a weak Christian, we have all we need, we are it there is no plan B. I CAN GO ON AND WILL Later

    i read a testimony every day…..i do also need prayer so plz do…thanks !!

  17. marquita Says:

    Hi my name is marquita i am a single mom of three kids with no help i stay with my sister in its very hARD. MY LIFE SEEMS TO GO IN A PATTERN IM UP THEN IM DOWN I REALLY DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO FROM HERE I PRAY BUT IT SEEMS I GET NO ANSWER. WHAT SHOULD I DO? PLEASE PRAY FOR ME AND MY THREE.

  18. Emory Says:

    I’ll pray for you Marquita. One thing you might consider is getting connected with a strong group of believers who care for one another, that is, a church or home group.

  19. Sylvia Says:

    I will pray for you Marquita. I encourage you to just take one day at a time. Find a church where you can get connected and you will realize that you are no on your on. I don’t just mean attend church on Sunday. I mean go to bible study, meet the women in the church. I am sure that if you do this you will see that you are not alone. We are here to encourage and help one another, that is God wants us to do. Unless you get connected and stay connected with a strong group of believers who really care for each other, you will always feel alone. “Love one another as I have loved you”. Get with strong believers so they can show you love and encouragement. The devil wants you to think that you are all by yourself, but you are not.
    Pray for God to come into your life and show you what he wants you to do. Sometimes we pray for God to change situations and then we get frustrated when the situations does not seem to change. Focus on God and not your situation and he will change how you see the situation. I know that sometimes life can feel full of problems, but if you keep your mind focused on God and not your situation he will fix your situation. I know because he did it for me and I know he will do it for you.
    God Bless

  20. Karen Says:

    Praise God! I just read your testimony, and I thank God for drawing you to Him and the Lord Jesus Christ! And I thank God that Salvation is not a one time deal, we keep coming to the Father for deliverance and help in time of need. He is a very present help in time of trouble! His mercies are new every morning! When He raised Jesus from the dead, that power became available to each of us if we believe! God, the Father, raised Jesus from the dead, He can deliver us out of any situation or circumstance we are in! God Bless.

  21. ANGELINAH Says:

  23. Chris Says:

  24. Emory Says:

    Chris, I can’t imagine that John would object to sharing this excellent testimony but let’s see if he responds.

  25. Glory Nduji Says:

    i’m Glory. I’v given my life to God bt i need someone to help me grow in faith. I need someone of any age, gender or tribe. I feel like i’v blown it most times. Please this is my email. ‘holla2glow[at]yahoo.co.uk’. Thanks.

  26. Lords' Servant Says:

    I am glad to read some of your testimonies both those with genuine intension to know God and those that claim to be trying, congrats. The Word of God cannot change Its forever the same. Jesus said “Come unto me all ye that labour and heavy laden, I will give you rest -. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me for my yoke is easy and my burden is light and you shall find rest to your soul. Again Jesus said to those who believe in Him, “ if you continue in my word and my word abides in you shall know the trust and the truth shall set you free( Paraphrased.) Remember He had already promised that as many that come unto him He shall by no means cast them away. These Words are faithful and true. If you claim to have truly and faithfully given your live to Jesus and still live a sinful life, Its either you turned away from your confession or your are saying that Jesus didn’t die for your sin. He actually died to set you free from your sin. The first posted testimony of genuine repentance that leads to salvation attests to that. Review your life again and note that your proximity to sin will always lure you back to it. Check who your friends are and cut off from them. Jesus instructed you that if your eye will take you to hell, CUT IT OFF. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than enter hell with your two eyes. The choice is yours Remember you are heading for hell if you don’t take your faith seriously

  27. Devon Says:

    Why did God even bother creating us if He knew most of us were going to hell anyway?

  28. Laura Licata Says:

    To Devon:
    God wanted us to choose Satan or Him. I hope that help you.

  32. Wesley Pittman Says:

    Dear Friend,

    Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, except by me.” Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, take my yoke upon me and learn of me and ye shall find rest in your hearts.”

    Jesus said, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth on me, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Jesus said, “All that the Father has given me, I will in no wise cast out.” Jesus said, “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

    Jesus said that we need to “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.” Jesus said that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Jesus said that “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of eternal life by the grace of God.”

    Do you want peace? Do you want true forgiveness of sins? Come to Jesus today and bring your burdens to Him and He will deliver you from Satan’s bondage of sin and from the penalty of Hell.

    There is a Heaven to gain and a Hell to shun. Get on the right road of turning and trusting Jesus.

    If you need any more help, please email me at wpittman32[at]gmail[dot]com. Also, if you have trusted in Jesus, please find a good, fundamental, Bible-believing church to attend where you can get grounded in the Word of God.

    Because of Calvary,

    your story is such a blessing to me. I don’t know if you still checked this site of yours after all this time, but if you are, I hope that you are still standing strong in Him, and I am proud and immensely blessed to have the opportunity to call you my BROTHER. We may never met each other, but this testimony of yours relate me to you in a way that you can never imagine. I will not say that it is a cliche, I will not say that it happened to me as well, but you my friend are extraordinary and you know it! GOD be the center of it all, and let us meet in heaven.

  36. Mathias Says:

    The people above showed me so much love and support that God up high have given them and make me want to be a stronger person with Christ and let God guide me in my life. These testimonies actually speak out to me and help me whenever I feel alone that is why I’m thankful of all the love that God have gave and represented to me :)

  37. Marissa Says:

    I was saved at sixteen and struggle to live a life pleasing unto God. I watched a video with a gentleman who died and almost went to hell. I also watched a woman who longed for God, the lord told her he is taking her to heaven in a dream and she agreed. Instead she went to hell and experienced the agony and pain of hell. When she got out in the dream, God told her to tell the people what hell is like and paint what you saw and experienced. And its grim. Listen satan do not love you and he will make your habits of sin seemed like its not a big deal. But when you die and go to hell he commands his demons to torture you. I still have issues of sin but i tell you i do not intend to go to hell after seeing those grim paintings and hearing what those two individuals saw. People its terrible and its ETERNAL and wicked. God give me the strength and grace that i need to follow only you. I want to live, breathe and be totally devoted to you Jehovah God. Help me PLEASE God.
