My testimony starts before my birth. While pregnant with me, my mom was told by the doctors that during my development my spine hadn’t fused together properly and diagnosed me with spinal bifida. I was to be paralyzed from the neck down for my whole life, never able to feed myself and possibly even in a vegetative state. She was encouraged to get an abortion. Through a lot of fervent prayer from my parents, my dad said God told him, “I don’t make trash”. They went back for another sonogram and the doctors couldn’t explain it, my spine had been healed and they called it a medical miracle. Now I’m a professional athlete in the ultimate combat sport. God still moves!
My parents divorced when I was a few years old and they both remarried. I wasn’t happy with my home life and became a very angry teenager, acting out at school and eventually turning to drugs and gang activity. Thank Jesus, this was short lived. I was sent to live at my dads house a couple of hours away for the next school year, where through discipline, structure and the Holy Spirit I was changed for the better and permanently set on the right track.
Though some of my struggles continued for years with women and lust, eventually I met a girl named Mariah, who is now my wife. And through our dating phase, with lots of prayer and fasting, I was radically delivered from the spirit of lust and struggling with porn and sex addiction. We remained pure throughout our whole dating relationship and saved intimacy for each other until marriage. In our obedience, God has really blessed our marriage, and we are now expecting a child. God is good. There is nothing that he can’t redeem. And He still moves.
