And this month is a special one in the fact that it is Easter and we get to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. To go with the celebration of His resurrection we get to share our testimony 👊❤
Thank you Dollface for tagging me 🙂 I am honored! Guys you should check out her testimony. Then follow this thread of tags and read everyone’s testimony. I may do a testimony link up…not sure yet…
I love reading and hearing people’s testimonies and to see what God has done in a person’s life! So powerful and immensely uplifting!
Here are the rules:
Is one filled with hurt, loneliness, depression, alcohol, sex, porn and masturbation and sometimes all within the same day. And it is also one that would take years to tell.
For those who have not been following my blog for a long time, I have three posts where I have shared parts of my story…
The Playground tells about the beginnings of my struggle with lust and sexual things.
We all have a beginning to our struggles in life. Sadly mine began way before it should have. But this world is NOT perfect.
Dear Porn Star: Please Forgive Me Which has a warning to read at your own risk. I hold no words back. I talk about an experience I had one night with God where He hit me over the head with the proverbial two-by-four.
I believe we have all experience that wake up call in one form or another.
My Testimony is one that I wrote for our Celebrate Recovery’s Honduras mission trip. I then shared it at Richland Celebrate Recovery on chip night after completing the 12 steps. It is kind of short and no where near the full story.
I am ashamed of the things I have done in my life. Just thinking of some of things I have done brings me tears every time.
Playing post office in kindergarten while its supposed to be nap time.
Playing doctor with the neighbor while outside my grandparent’s house.
Sex with anyone whenever.
Drinking till I passed out. Waking up having no freaking idea what I did or how I even made it to a couch or bed. See The Couch Experience post for one of the times I almost died from drinking.
Two failed marriages.
My life was a train wreck waiting to happen.
But then God…
He stepped in during my truest darkest hour and forever changed me. It is a night I will never forget.
It was that night he opened memories of being molested as I cried out to him trying to understand why I acted the way I did.
It was a night that shook me to the core. And yet it was the most delivering night of my life. I become free from my past. Forgiven. Washed clean. No longer bound in chains of addiction.
It was also the night He called me to help other men and women who struggle with porn and sexual issues.
You see, despite, how bad my past was and the hell I caused and went through God is using it to help others. Me…Stu…the worst of sinners…God is using for His kingdom.
It is something I do not take lightly. It is something that none of us should take lightly!
No matter your story and what you have endured or put others through…someone needs to hear it.
I’ve said it before on numerous occasions and I will continue saying it until God calls me home…
For this one I am tagging…
For those I have tagged please do not feel obligated to participate. I just love hearing others testimonies!
