Set Free From Sexual Addiction

Set Free From Sexual Addiction | Christian Testimonies | Scoop.it
My name is Lauren and I am made in the image of God, but I didn't always feel that way. I felt unclean due to my sexual addiction.
Matias Codesals insight:

Sexual addiction is real and rampant in our society. With how easy it is to access the plethora of films, books and billboards showcasing all forms of sexual acts, it’s no wonder so many people have been ensnared just like Lauren was. But there is hope and a chance to be set free from it.

Life or Death

Life or Death | Christian Testimonies | Scoop.it
Life is a gift given freely to all. It all began when I chose to rebel. Instead of running and seeking God for help, I sowed into the flesh.
Matias Codesals insight:

When trials come into our lives, it’s usually easier to turn to our fleshly desires rather than seek and ask God for His help. Delores learned that rebellion against God during trials only worsened the situation and negatively impacted her own life in the process.

As you will see and hear, Jesus worked powerfully in their lives and now their marriage stands to honor Him. You will find love written everywhere in their home and becoming love is a part of every facet of their lives.

Finding My Child-like Faith Again

Finding My Child-like Faith Again | Christian Testimonies | Scoop.it
What more could I want? I made it. I got to the top. Yet, arriving, I asked myself the haunting question,”Is this it?”
Matias Codesals insight:

There’s something beautiful and precious about children; they view the world through a lens of innocence. Anything and everything is possible for them and faith is just as easy to have as a candy bar. But then adult-hood comes and our childlike wonder disappears under the layers of disappointment, hopelessness and crushed dreams. As you will read, Kathy experienced this very thing when she became an adult. But Jesus restored her as a child of God.
