Freed from Porn, Depression, and Poverty After Hearing the Gospel

I am an ardent follower of God, having been born to God-fearing parents. However, despite my love for God, I’d always felt I would never be good enough for Him. I tried my best, though. I was industrious in everything that had to do with Him, even in working on my character. Still, the feeling remained.

Then, things became so difficult for me. My family was struggling to survive and food became a luxury. I grew bitter against God. I was constantly bored and irritated but pretended to be a goody-goody Christian going to church. Not to mention that some twenty years ago, I accidentally discovered pornography and all its associated ill effects.

During that period, I also tried following many ministries to “sort out my life.” I contracted a terminal disease, lost a parent, and lost many close relatives and friends to sickness and disease. I was always depressed and very angry and bewildered with God. How can He say He loves me and still treat me like this?

These feelings and thoughts continued until I discovered Joseph Prince Ministries some 6 years ago. When I started watching Joseph Prince’s podcasts, I still had this thought at the back of my mind: “If God failed to take care of me all this time, why would He start now?” However, by God’s grace, I decided to continue listening to the podcasts every time I could. I would still be doing the things that I did not like. It made me feel so dirty but God did not give up on me. I felt like He made it His mission to bring me out of each of my troubles.

Eventually, my finances started to improve, and my siblings and parents started to see a change in me. I confessed everything Pastor Prince had taught. I stood upon scriptures and owned it as my personal truth. Thank God, I have seen significant improvements in my life.

I am no longer depressed. The desire for pornography has left me and I am now always joyful and at peace. Whenever I feel something try to pull me back to a life of sin and failure, I do not fight it. I just thank the Lord Jesus that He took it on Himself so I don’t have to experience it in my life.

Now I receive new revelations every day. Christianity and righteousness are no longer myths to me, but realities. Thank you, Joseph Prince Ministries, and all the partners who have made this possible. I am convinced that much more blessings are coming my way.
