Saved from the LGBT Lifestyle

Hello there. Today I will be sharing my testimony of how I got saved from the LGBT lifestyle. Trust me, there were many times I thought I was saved, but I knew deep down I wasn’t.

So here is my story. I grew up in a Christian family, but my mother wasn’t in the church. So, me and my siblings went to church with my grandparents. I remember going to Sunday school, but not really paying attention to Jesus.

As a teen going into high school, I discovered the homosexual lifestyle. I at the time thought it was my true identity. I started dating and felt loved, and like it was right for me. But as the years went by, I became more depressed. I started feeling very alone. I felt like no one understood me. Then about 2 years ago at a low point, my grandmother sent me the bible.

I read it and cried. I thought I was going to hell because God hated my sin. After reading it, I thought I was saved but boy was I wrong. Over the next couple of years, I wanted so badly to believe God’s truth but didn’t want to give up what I was doing.

Then it really hit me. The last relationship with a woman recently was the last straw for me. I finally realized that living this way causes me nothing but pain. it may me depressed, alone, unworthy and undeserving of love.

It may me realize that yes, God is telling the truth, even though at the time I didn’t want to accept it. There was one night where I couldn’t sleep. So, I asked God to help me repent of my sins, such as homosexual desires and thoughts, worshiping idols and many others.

Then slowly I started to get rid of my old things so I wouldn’t be tempted back into sin. I needed God’s grace. I pray every day to fully surrender myself to him and to give me a new heart. I am a work in progress, but I have full faith and trust in the Lord that he will heal me, physically spiritually and emotionally.

1 Corinthians 9 through 11 NLV: Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along, Psalms 40:1-2 NLT.

Thanks for reading. God bless!
