In the past I never liked to talk about me, but since I trusted God completely that has changed. I have to tell you about where I have been so I can tell you about the one person that I can’t say enough about. That would be the Lord Jesus Christ – my precious savior and best friend.
When I was around the age of 8 years old I was being sexually molested. The older I got the further away from him I got, so eventually it stopped.
I accepted Jesus into my life in 1981 and became active in my church. I believed everything would be okay, and it was for awhile . . . until I went in one direction and left Jesus standing with his arms opened wide and tears running down His face.
I had feelings for the same sex and I thought it was because of my past. Around the age of 17 I started hanging out with the gay crowd. I felt like I had found my place in life. Oh how wrong I was! For the last 18 years of my life I have been gay. I could hear Jesus calling me back time after time, but I was living life my way. My way brought nothing but a lot of pain and tears. I had no peace or joy at all. At one point I found myself on my knees in my front yard holding a gun to my head praying to God to give me the strength to pull the trigger. He gave me strength alright – to get up and go on with my life.
As soon as He helped me I went right back to my old lifestyle not giving him the credit he deserved. In October of last year I was on my way to work and out of nowhere a truck was sitting still in the middle of the interstate . I hit it head on and then a van hit me. I found myself laying face down in my floorboard hurting like never before. I remember laying there screaming out to God help me please! I was in a wheelchair for awhile and then a walker. I spent about three months on crutches which seemed like forever. God was right there that day just like all the other times I had called on him. He was holding me in his arms on October 2nd. I should have died that day. I owe everything to Him; He is my savior. I could hear Him saying, “Kim I love you, I am right here just like always.”
I have left my old life behind and given my life over to Him completely. I have never had such peace and joy in my life before. I thank God for His unconditional love and for giving me a chance to tell others where I have been and where I would be without the Lord Jesus Christ. I give my testimony to as many as I can. My prayer is that God will use me to share His love and mercy with others.
THE RIGHTEOUS CRY, AND THE LORD HEARETH, AND DELIVERETH THEM OUT OF ALL THEIR TROUBLES.
May God bless you always and forever!
