I will apologize in advance for the length (only) of this post but I feel that every word is important for someone today. Note: This page – A Will & Way, Inc. is a forum for people who seek to help themselves and others to live the life that they were intended from birth and it is only when we choose to walk in the reality of who we are meant to be and run away from bondage of any kind that we will live in Victory. When I read this I knew I had to share it without judgement, for God loves us all and welcomes us especially in our lowest state.

I was broken hurt and bruised. A boy with a broken identity, who believed he was born homosexual. The deeper the lust and the sexual encounters, the emptier I felt. Emptier and emptier. I had no joy nor peace in my life, I had a distorted view of what love is, and yet it did not satisfy me, deep down I knew that my lifestyle was wrong, but I was bound by chains and fetters, I started drinking, I started cutting myself to feel. My sexual encounters became more and more sick, and one evening, when I went with someone I never met and never knew, I hit rock bottom, I was so broken, I was so overwhelmed by the weight of my sinful life. I was sinking deep in sin, I was far from the Peaceful shore, but the Master of the Sea came and lifted me out of the pit of destruction. Jesus Christ was with me when i did the filthiest things, He was calling me back to Father everyday. One evening, the weight of my sin was so strong and weighed me down like a 1000 tons of cement, the Holy Spirit convicted me of the life I was living, homosexuality, alcoholism, lust, self-mutilation, self-centeredness, pride, lying… as I was feeling all of this, the Father manifested His LOVE, GRACE & MERCY to me through Jesus Christ. I never felt such love – He moved with such authority yet with such LOVE and COMPASSION. I knew that there is a GOD. Now saved am I, cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ, i am dead to my sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus. Now my life is a declaration to the Messiah, HE is The Way, The Truth & The Life. I have tasted and seen that the Lord is good! Washed and cleansed by the precious Blood of my Jesus Christ! HALLELUJAH!!!!!
Psalm 40:2-3 “He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
out of the miry clay,
and set my feet on a rock,
and established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth,
even praise to our God;
many will see it, and fear,
and will trust in the Lord”
