David: United States
David's Christian Testimony: A few years ago in October of 2010 one very early morning at about 3 am I was alone in my room on my laptop.
I had just spent the entire weekend looking at porn on the internet. Now, I know that sounds funny, but prior to this I had spent the last few years addicted to porn.
I was still a teenager then and I spent this time falling in and out of "love" with girls on youtube. This combination of addiction and breaking my heart was devastating. I had come to the end of myself. In my bedroom all alone on my laptop, I heard a voice inside me-more closer to my ear say, "Look up stories about angels."
I use to love reading stories about angels but I hadn't done that in years. This quickly led to an atheist's testimony about how he encountered God while in a coma. In his own words, the atheist felt God loved him more than his wife could ever love him, his parents could ever love him or anyone has ever loved him. I asked myself, "Is this love for real?"
You see-I grew up in a Christian household but never got to know God. If this was how God felt about an atheist then surely he loves me, someone who at least once knew him. I heard the voice again. It said, "Yes, it is." Three simple words. I finished reading the rest of the testimony, which ended with the Prayer of Salvation. I have never been the same again.
After receiving Salvation, I lied on my bedroom floor literally feeling like I had been scrubbed clean with soap and water. That same day I read the Bible for 3 hours something I had never done before. | I did this everyday for a week.
In the course of several months, I lost 70 lbs. I graduated from high school a Salutatorian with a GPA of almost 4. In the same year I graduated, I was hired for my first job. The first five jobs I ever applied for I was called back for interviews and was hired. Before Jesus I blazay-liked anyone and I hated myself. After becoming saved, I now try to love everyone and I love and respect myself.
It hasn't been perfect. I still had rough times and I still do to this day. But I take peace because I know that Jesus saved me and one day I will be with Him in Heaven forever. No matter what I go through, He is with me. Also.. After being saved, this might sound a little funny, but my hygiene, handwriting, organizational skills and singing voice, (I don't like to sing very much) and smiling all improved dramatically.
