I was blessed to have known the Lord Jesus at the age of five through the teaching of my parents and from there, I grew in my faith. I was also blessed to be a part of a Christian school where the motto was training in righteousness. I was baptized in May 1997 in the Jordan River during a college trip to Israel. Based on the presence and conviction of the Holy Spirit living inside of me and based on Ephesians 2:8-9 and other related passages in Scripture, I have full assurance of my salvation in Christ.
Despite having known the Lord, I struggled with habitual sin for many years. Praise the Lord that I used to be in shackles to pornography and other forms of sexual impurity, but I am now set free by the precious blood of Christ. I tried ending the habitual aspect of this sin on my own for three years. But then on August 2, 2000, after crying out to God on my knees for deliverance and confessing that I couldnt do it on my own, I was then freed of my slavery to sexual impurity. The struggles lingered, however, with many battles—some of them were intense—all the way through 2006. I won many by the grace of God, but I also lost some battles.
Then God personally convicted me of certain music I was listening to that I needed to throw away. The Holy Spirit also showed me that I had to stop browsing Web sites that only gave the enemy an open door into my life. Although the sites were not pornographic, they still appealed to my sinful nature. Since I have eliminated or radically amputated these, I have had incredible victory in my thought life, and the Lord is enabling me to take captive each thought to make it obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5). He is giving me the ability to cancel out every impure thought via the cross of Christ, and making me victorious over the enemy on a regular daily basis. I have never been married and at 28 years of age, I feel blessed to be set free well before that happens! Praise the Lord!
In addition, there were other forms of demonic oppression in my life, but the Lord has healed, delivered, and set me free of that as well. I am now walking in freedom by His grace. God has taken the place of all of the worldly treasures I once admired. In other words, I no longer need those in my life. I now know that all I need is the Lord.
I also want to mention that I used to be extremely shy and had a social problem of fearing people. I am now on the radio doing what I never imagined I could do. Im doing what I didnt even want to do initially—Im hosting a talk show! It is a Christian program and the Lord is using me to speak out against evil and bring the truth to light.
It is my goal now to reach out, via a radio ministry, to those who struggle with addictions, demonic oppression, and those who have been abused in some way. I hope my talkshow will go national and international someday. The Lord has allowed my radio show as it is now to be broadcasted live on the Internet every week. Praise the Lord. I couldnt have made it this far without him!
SEE: The mighty God is Omniscient! He knows our end from our beginning. He waits to be gracious to us. He says and waits for us to return and rest in Him so that He would save us (Isaiah 30:15 & 18). Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:19)
