SKILESS's testimony "A Blessing As God Can Only Give !" on 9/15/2016, 1:21pm...
A BLESSING AS GOD CAN ONLY GIVE !
Around the age of 7… I was molested.
Something that I never told anyone for 43 years. It was my Hell because you feel guilty for it. I always said if anyone would have done that to my children, I would have shown them no mercy !
Back then I was not saved and lived in the high mountains of Colorado.
I have twins a boy and a girl.
At about the age of 57 is was at my bottom at least for me.
I had lost everything … From being a world class skier, having a wife and two children and a house that I built on twenty acres on a side of a mountain with a 100 mile view ……
But I was a sinner and God had a plan for me.
I was a catholic till I went into the Army at the age of 18. But being a catholic just was not me. I knew that there was a God and Jesus but they don't tell you much more than that.
Anyway, on the bottom, I knew that I had to leave Colorado or die. Finally I decided to forgive everyone …. Of everything …. Even the man who had molested me 50 years before.
God came into my life then but I still was not saved. I know He was in my life because He took my drug addiction away.
I mean it was gone !
Anyone who has had an addiction knows to just quit and not have the urge is a miracle.
It would be one more year before I would buy a Bible. Now all my life I believed in God and Jesus but I did not know them.
I had a hunger for sexually gratification ever since I was molested. And that was daily. I had always known that it was not right but I could not stop.
Now people say just do it well they have never had the devil have hold of their life. With the desire in me and continuous prayers to help me, He took the burden from me.
IT WAS GONE ! !
Now I also chewed tobacco since 1980.
And I knew that the Holy Spirit could not be in me if I did that to my body. I tried to quit but the devil had a hold on me.
One night at a tiny church building my wife and I went to hear some Gospel music and before the end the preacher asked if anyone needed anything I guess like a alter call.
Praying never hurts so I went up but I did not pray to stop chewing. God, just as He says, knew what I needed.
THE URGE WAS GONE TO CHEW ! ! !
Anyone who has or is addicted to Nicotine
knows what a hard time it is to quit.
So now it has been 2 years since I got my Bible and 3 years since I forgive everyone for everything.
And there is so much more to my life story that I now can see how GOD has been there from as young as I can remember.
And satan cannot cast out satan.
ALL GLORY TO GOD !
MAY THE PEACE OF THE GOD OF ISRAEL BE UPON YOU
FORGIVE EVERYONE OF ………. EVERYTHING
TO BE FORGIVEN OF …………….. EVERYTHING
EVERYTHING ! ! !
