Well, not really my life, but I wanted to share this powerful story with you (for those that don’t know – a “stud” is slang for a female that is attracted to women and takes on the masculine role) Maybe, you are someone….or maybe you know someone who considers themselves to be homosexual, gay, lesbian, bi-sexual or transgender? Maybe, you don’t even like the title, but you still struggle with the thought and the actions of being anything but heterosexual? It’s by far – not my job to judge you, criticize you, look down upon you, or belittle you. I’m not going to preach to you or force you to change your beliefs. It is my job, as a disciple of Christ to share His love and truth with you. Always remember that you are still loved – His love for you will always be greater than anyone or anything on this earth. Never forget that! You must also remember that He is still saddened by the sin – the sin of living a lifestyle that is not pleasing in His eyes. His heart aches for you to turn away and turn to Him – and that is the truth!
Here’s a powerful testimony from a young woman, Jackie Hill of Passion 4 Christ Movement sharing her testimony in a spoken word poetry form. She’s raw, uncut, real, and transparent. It is my prayer that you are inspired, encouraged, and uplifted. I beg you to listen to her story by watching the video, below:
So are you ready to change your life today? Are you ready to make the first step in becoming the person God called you to be? You don’t have to do anything drastic or anything to be put on display…Simply trust Jesus for your salvation. Believe that He loves you and created you exactly how He wanted you to be before you entered the earth.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart…” Jeremiah 1:5
“God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:27
Believe that His son Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for your sins and that His resurrection guarantees your eternal life. That is how you accept Him as your personal Lord and Savior. You will be saved by the grace of God, not because you try to make things right in your life. He wants you to accept this salvation only because He loves you! It is not something to be earned…it is a free gift.
Maybe, you’ve already prayed the prayer of salvation in the past, but you still find a way to prove your actions and your thoughts. Maybe, you still believe that if you stay the way you are, you’ll still live eternal life with Christ and enter the gates of Heaven. Please don’t be deceived – don’t allow Satan to mastermind your thoughts. Don’t allow him to feed you excuses and lies. The truth is – God is hurt, He is saddened, and He reaches out His hand unto to you. Let Him take you by the hand…accept Him and confess Him as your personal Lord and Savior. If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved (Romans 10:9-10). If you are ready to accept the gift of eternal life through Jesus, and if you truly wish for Him to enter your heart to be your personal Lord and Savior, then pray this prayer:
Jesus, I know that I am a sinner. I believe that You died for my sins and rose from the grave so that I might have eternal life in heaven with You. I willingly repent of my sins and ask you to come into my heart and life. Transform me, Renew me, Awaken me, Renovate me and repair me. Make me like you! I rid my old ways and my old thinking. I leave the past behind today and I choose to follow You. Take control of my words, thoughts, and actions. I place all of my trust in You for my salvation. I accept You as my Lord and Savior, and this free gift of eternal life. Amen.
If you have just prayed this prayer and accepted Christ, welcome to the family of God! Again, maybe this isn’t your first time praying this prayer – well welcome back! Now, just get involved – seek counsel from a spiritual advisor, fellowship with other believers, start praying and talking to God, find a great bible-believing church, and most importantly – start reading the bible! The days ahead of you may not be easy, but He will always be with you. Just let Him be your guide and He’ll lead the way for you. I promise, now that you’ve accepted Him – you are hooked like a fish being caught in the middle of the sea….There’s no way off that hook. You’ll begin to have encounters with Him like never before. He’ll start aligning your steps, you’ll eventually find that people among your circle of friends will be removed and replaced. You’ll go through transitions that will shift you in the direction that God had planned for you all along! Get ready to live a whole new life – Today is the day you get to start over!
