The Lord took away the addictions I had in my life

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:4

My life was completely transformed almost 20 years ago after I was born again in Australia while travelling around aimlessly. I met a couple who told me that God could prove his existence to me by giving me his Holy Spirit with the outward sign of speaking in tongues, a new language given from God. I was astounded and though I argued with them for a few weeks, I became more convinced they were on to something and that it was really special.

I decided to put it to the test because I had nothing to lose. I was baptised by immersion, following the example Jesus gave to us. A few nights later I received the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. It was a life-changing moment where I instantly knew God was real and now living within me. I felt like a totally changed person.

From that moment I lost the desire to do all the ungodly things I was doing in my life and started a new way of living. The Lord took away the addictions I had in my life such as drinking, smoking, drugs and all sorts of other dodgy things I was involved in. That was a long time ago, and life has only continued to be more blessed with God in it. By using the Holy Spirit every day I am guided by the Lord in the wisest, healthiest, happiest way to lead life and I’m loving every moment of it! I am now part of this worldwide family of God. It’s also wonderful having God’s blessing and help in my marriage and the raising of my son.
