Angel LThe 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.
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.
