My Testimony, My Story

"Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will tell what he has done for my soul." - Psalms 66:16






God knows that I have told my testimony plenty of times, but on this Christmas Eve it felt right to fully tell you guys my story and how I decided to give my life to Christ. I am so eager to let you all know how it all started and I am glad that God has given me a voice. A wonderful platform to be able to speak with no shame. Psalms 35:28 truly describes how I feel at this moment. It says "My tongue shall tell your righteousness and of your praise all day long."  I remember the first time I told the world my testimony. One morning I was taking a shower, praying to God and the holy spirit said to me let people know about your testimony. At that time I really didn't know what to do, but to obey God. So I got out my iphone and started recording myself talking about my testimony then I decided upload it on social media. The reaction I got from people was surprising because that's when I started to see the true colors of people around me. I could not believe how many people were against me. I was only trying to follow God's instructions. At that moment I did not realize how many people would be hurt by my testimony. All I could think about was being honest about my story because it was what I was going through. This was real to me! A lot of people took me as a joke, some laughed at me, the friends that I thought were my friends turned their backs against me and some acted like they truly cared but in reality they did not. Then I had some friends who understood where I was coming from because they were also saved. At first, I felt alone like I had no one to turn to, but God reassured me that I was not the only one going through this. He truly showed me how much he loved me and held my hands through every obstacle I faced that month. It's crazy how your life can drastically change when you give your life to Christ. You don't fully know the true characters of others until God opens your eyes and shows you who genuinely loves you and who doesn't. That season of my life was one that I will never forget and till this day I thank God for saving me when he did. And I am honestly glad I gave my life completely to him. No great decision I have made in my life could top this one.  If it wasn't for God, my family and the small circle of friends I had I do not know how I would have survived that very moment in my life.

Now let me tell you what led to me making a positive change in my life and giving my life to Christ.

It was a year after I just graduated from College and I thought it would be a great idea to go back to my old school, visit some friends and celebrate African Night. At that time in my life I was still seeing a guy who I wasn't meant to be with. Let's just say that relationship was filled with nothing, but lust. I remember  that day my brother and I decided to take a trip to my old college. It was on a summer Friday Night; a day before the African Night Event. We decided that I would stay at my friends house while he stayed at my friends place. When we arrived on campus he dropped me off and left. The next day I went shopping with my friends then after I told one of my friends to stop at "the guys" place, so I could quickly say hi to him. Before I go on with this story let me tell you guys that I was seeing this guy a year before I graduated. We weren't in a relationship, but we were talking and doing other grown up stuff.

Anyway,  my friend waited in the car while I walked into his apartment. As soon as I walked in I felt a weird vibe. Something felt different about being at  his place. Now this is a place that I was very familiar with. My apartment use to be across from his so I was use to going over there a lot, but for some reason that day felt different. When I walked in I said hi to him and gave him a hug, but he was acting very strange around me and I was saddened by his behavior so I left. When I got back inside the car I told my friend about the situation and I made up my mind that I was not going to call him or be with him for the rest of the night. I was gonna have fun with my friends, party and do what college kids do. Get wasted!

Later on that night I got ready with my girlfriends and my best friend at that time. As we began to pregame and get ready to enjoy our night. I felt something come upon me. The same bad vibe I felt earlier on, but this time around the feeling was worse. I got so scared that I called the guy I was seeing and he basically said some harsh words to me and hung up on me. Not only did he break my heart, but he also shattered it into many piece and this time around I couldn't put the pieces back together. And to make things worse I was seeing demonic spirits all around the room, controlling the behaviors and actions of my friends. It got to the point where I did not know what else to do, but break down and cry. As I was sobbing I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit and he said, "Why are you here? You don't belong here. Don't you know that God has amazing plans for you?" When I heard that voice I felt slightly calm and that's when I decided to call my brother who happened to be hanging out with "our friend." The reason why I say our friend is because this guy happened to be our long time friend for many years. This friend of ours was saved around this time and also preaching the word of God. <------ See how God works. As soon as they both arrived and I looked in the eyes of "our friend" and that's when I saw a light into the room.  I quickly ran up to him and started crying on his shoulders. That's when he pulled me away from everyone and I told him everything that happened. He said that was God trying to tell me to change my life around and how I should give my life completely to Christ.

The next morning, I felt like a changed woman. I did not feel the same as the day before. It was almost like I was made new in Christ. I knew from that day on that I was going to give my life completely to Christ and never look back ever again.


That's my testimony ya'll and if you read it to the very end I just want to tell you that I LOVE YOU AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU <3


Merry Christmas & Happy New Years

There is not many young people that speak up about Christ, you use twitter and I use my snap to spread the word. God is doing great things as he uses his daughters to further the kingdom.

  2. Giving your life and to surrender it all to God takes strength and courage. So I applaud you. Sometime because of the love that God has for us and the plan for our testimony, He has to force us to tear away things, friends and even family. Look at Joseph, was torn away from his brothers because of the place and height God was taking him to. So don't be sadden that you lost friends, keep praying for them and keep on shining bright with the light of God and He who is Just and ever Faithful will see you through the Journey. Remain blesses, Merry Christmas.

  5. Hi dear, I was very touched by your story. Right now I am going through a lot and facing some difficulties and reading this gave me hope. I too went through wrong relationships at the point of losing trust in myself so hearing all this from you makes m understand that God is the great Savior and we need to change our ways. I don't kno if one can get to talk to u privately but I hope u see this and contact me. Thank you and God bless you.����
