A very familiar voice called me forward one night – I reasoned with God that he was calling the wrong person because I was entangled in promiscuity, alcoholism, being experimental, partying, and hatred. There was no way that God could call me and use me for His glory, let alone be a child of His. I slipped away from my mom’s pastoral teaching and protection and looked to the world as my home. I was tired of living in a bubble so I chose hell. I gave my life to the devil, and I actually said one day I wanted to go to hell because I was having so much fun sinning. The voice drew me in close and I fought God that I wasn’t good enough, and that if He could see my lumps and bruises then He would know I wasn’t qualified. That’s when He spoke and said He would restart my whole life; that who I was and the person the world saw me as would be wiped away. That is when my life truly began – and I just want to encourage someone who was like myself that God will restart your life. Don’t think the person you used to be will still be there when you choose Him. God renews us and restarts our whole life and blows away our sins. I am no longer that person and God wants to use you if you allow him to. Jesus loves you!
