Personal Testimonies

Kim's Life: From Drugs and Alcohol to Faith in Jesus Christ

I was lost to life in the fast lane from a very early age. I came out of a a broken, lonely childhood and immediately got caught up in alcoholism, promiscuity, gambling, lying, stealing, etc. my life was a shambles almost from the start. When I was 33 I finally hit rock bottom, having shamed myself to the point I knew that I would have to kill myself if I didn't change. I just could not go on the way I had been going for so long.

I'm not one of those who changed in a minute. Mine was a slow, step by step process, but I knew there was a God and He wanted me to triumph over everything, I just didn't know His name was Jesus Christ.

For years I bounced along reading a lot of "New Age" books and eventually I began to have "psychic" experiences. I think I stayed away from Jesus because I couldn't deal with His gruesome death or understand what it meant to me and my life.

About 5-6 years ago I got interested in astral projection and bought a book on the subject, intending to give it a try. I didn't know at the time that I was opening myself up to demonic stuff, but that's exactly what happened. And I found out that all that "psychic" stuff had also been demonic activity. Cut to the chase, I began to experience demonic attacks that only calling on the name of Jesus Christ could stop. And that's when I knew that it was Him, and only Him.

Jesus Christ is the only Son of the living Almighty God and He reigns in heaven exactly as the Bible describes. Of that, I have zero doubts. And because He left His heavenly home to come to earth and willingly submit to extreme torture on my behalf, I don't have to burn in hell as I deserve. He has forgiven my sins and will remember them no more. I am saved.

We all owe Him a debt we can never repay, but all he asks of us is to accept His gift and live as He taught. I adore Him. I have fallen in love. He is most deserving of worship. Amen.

I hope my testimony helps bring another soul to The Lord. That's the best I can hope to do for Him.
