Howdy! I’m David.
A little about my Christian life. Mid-2000s I started going to Church and started feeling good about myself. Then, I got married, stopped going to Church, fell away from God, and became an angry person and started hating the world and become controlling.
5 years of marriage, and my wife at the time decided to pack up and leave (while I was at work in 2013). Sure, neither of us were saints, but issues with her family and my controlling sure don’t help.
So, I was broken and didn’t know what to do (It was a great way to lose weight fast). I turned back to God, started reading the Bible and my life has taken a whole new road!
My first real sign from God that everything was going to be alright was two months after my ex left, I was talking with my dad while driving down the highway, and I was telling him how I wasted the last 5 years of my life. He said it wasn’t a waste, but… How does someone in my situation believe that?
I got home and went to lay down in my bed and I started talking to God. I told him I felt I wasted the last 5 years of my life and I asked for help, and a sign.
Whelp, as soon as I was done talking with God, for some reason, I went to my iPad and jumped on Twitter (yeah, Twitter). The first thing that popped up was… “You may be thinking you’ve wasted years of your life somehow, but God is saying, ‘I can restore those years.’” (this was on October 21, 2013… Still saved under my favorites)
Couldn’t get any clearer than that! Though, I thought that sign meant she was coming back. Now, after two years, I realize God was saying he could restore those years to mean something to me. To be used as an example to help others, for God’s Will.
Anywho, that’s a short version of my testimony.
I’ve lived Matthew 12:43-45, “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ When it arrives, it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and put in order. Then it goes and takes with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first. That is how it will be with this wicked generation.”
So, be sure to fill your minds yearly, monthly, weekly, daily, hourly, 24/7 with God! Otherwise, Satan will fill it with what he wants.
