I grew up with a church background but did not understand that Jesus had already paid the entire price for all my sins. When I was nineteen years old, I went down the wrong path and began to smoke marijuana and cigarettes, which ultimately led to fornication, heavy drinking, and severely abusive relationships, simply because I was trying to find friends and blend in with others. I did not realize that I was giving away my blessings and great opportunities.
When I was twenty-seven, I was on the brink of becoming a great singer and was offered a great career in show business. However, because of the smoking, the one gift that could have taken me there began to fail me—I was losing my voice slowly.
"It would fade in and out and eventually my dreams were smashed when I received no more offers."
After that, I fell into a great depression for eight years and I moved away to start life over.
Even so, I was still struggling with smoking while watching my contemporaries excel, and I felt bitter about being left behind. This was until the Father sent me the wonderful message of grace. I have since quit smoking altogether and because of Joseph Prince Ministries, I have found my true love, Jesus Christ.
I am also pleased to report that the Lord had healed my voice and it is now even better than before.
“The Lord has restored my soul and my youth, and given me a fresh start.”
I have also been blessed with a new opportunity to work with a well-known talent manager. So even though I am now thirty-six—ten years older than when I first started—the Lord has restored my soul and my youth, and given me a fresh start. Pastor Prince’s message of grace really transformed my whole way of life and my entire way of thinking. I now understand that it is not by my own works but by HIS grace that I have been saved.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, and Joseph Prince Ministries!
