Praising God - Salvation

How the Holy Spirit Filled Me with Creative Gifts

This is my testimony or my coming to Christ by Gary H Kleiner.

This is my story how and why I came to Christ and how the Holy Spirit came to me. My early life is as follows, I was brought up Jewish, never had a real sense of God, had learning problems as a teenager, then developed anxiety and depression as well as obsessive compulsive disorder.

I eventually sought treatment, I have been on a lot of medications and these conditions followed me for over ten years.

I came to Christ when I was 30, but I wasn’t yet filled with the Holy Spirit.

I wasn’t filled because my life was the same and I didn’t take the conversion seriously.

My life became more stressful, my psychiatric medications weren’t working so I looked for a way out. I attempted suicide and survived. I had a strong desire to draw after my suicide attempt.

I realized the Holy Spirit gave me an intense desire to draw and to understand the process of creating art and to use it to heal myself and others. Today I am able to coach others creatively while sharing my testimony with others.

I also experience prophetic dreams and visions which make my faith stronger.
