I was raised in a Christian home, but by the time I was 10 years old, I knew I was in bondage to a sexual sin. This sin was part of my secret life, but its consequences were very public. I lost two professional jobs and was asked to leave three different churches over the 48 years I was a slave to that sexual sin. I was even shamed publicly in the community.
I consulted many Christian counselors and ministers for help. I also received the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gift of tongues in my mid-twenties. However, the secret sexual thoughts and actions did not stop. I finally went for secular counseling and bought into the lie that I would always be addicted.
Through the teachings of Joseph Prince and others like him, I discovered that my heart was broken and wounded. I learned that Jesus came to heal the broken-hearted, and I also professed with my mouth that His precious blood covers my heart. I learned that freedom from this addiction is His will for me.
Four years ago, I was completely set free and healed over a weekend. The Lord healed my heart and emotions, cleansed my will, and gave me a deep revelation of His righteousness. I am so different now from the person I had been for 48 years. Jesus has healed my marriage and my wife actually trusts me now. He has given me a new career that is virtually stress-free and yet pays more than any job I ever had.
I am now restored to wholeness by the Lord and am able to bear fruit in His kingdom. I truly love Him with all my heart. His righteousness is manifested in my life without relying on my willpower or recovery programs. I am an overcomer, highly blessed and greatly favored. Praise Jesus!
