My name is Justin V. and I’ve been walking w/ the Lord for 2 1/2 years as of 2020. Prior to my salvation, I lived a life of sin and pleasures and fulfilled what’er my heart desired.
I was into the gang life when I was little, than moved away and got introduced into the heavy metal scene. I joined a few bands, and as time went on, the music became darker and darker. I then tried Satanism and later became an atheist.
I was addicted to pills, smoking, I tried counselling, therapy, antidepressants and nothing seemed to work. It felt like I was calling out to the world and the world had abandoned me. There was no hope insight.
I then tried to drown my self further into music “rap beats.” I started to produce my own and was getting pretty popular in my area. I began selling them but still I felt all alone.
One day I couldn’t take it anymore, I took some sleeping pills and I remember I started to cut my self w/ my pocket knife and in the morning I woke up to a self inflicting upside down cross on my stomach and a few days later I became suicidal. I was led to some channel and on that channel I heard this guy talking about the new world order but toward the end, he mentioned one phrase that sparked my interest. He said that you must put on the whole “Armor of God.” From there I sought a salvation video and I drove down to my local lake and I walked all the way down stream and I got down on my knees and I simply said
“God, I’m so sorry for all the bad things I’ve ever done, please if you can save me! I receive Jesus into my heart as my own personal Lord and Saviour.”
Now it didn’t happen over night but one thing was for sure, something happened to me that day that I’ll never forget. The guilt was gone, it felt like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulder. As years went by, God has been molding me into the man that he wants me to be.
I’m 24 years old and I got born again when I was 22. Jesus has done so much for me in that short amount of time its truly a miracle! I AM A WALKING MIRACLE! AMEN!! I took all my old desires away, smoking, pills, vexing music and replaced them with proper exercising, listening to the old hymns and reading my blessed ol’ King James bible and loving my Lord! P.S the Lord blessed me with my dream drop as a mechanic! Yes a highschool drop out with no education! God will supply all our needs!!! Praise the LORD!!
Now I’m not perfect nor am I sinless, but one thing I am is redeemed! If I can leave a message and 3 scriptures to an unbeliever, It would be that no matter what you’ve done, as long as you’re a sinner, God wants to reason with you and give you a brand new life and eternal life in the hereafter. Wouldn’t you like to hit the reset button on life? Now you can if you accept Jesus. He’ll completely change your entire life and will literally give you a new heart! Hear ye Him!!!
