Encountering Jesus’ Love Liberated Me From Sexual Perversion And Gave Me A Sense Of Direction – Paul

Sometimes, we can almost tell that we belong to something, someone bigger than ourselves. That our existence isn’t just ours but part of something bigger. This was me as a child. I always felt in my heart that I belonged to God. It was strange, I was strange. I felt there was more to life than the regular; like God was calling me to a life of walking with Him. Although I could not deny the realness of this feeling, I never really engaged it.

But there lies the difference between us and the devil. He also knows, like me, that God calls out to us, but unlike me who never really engaged this call, he got busy.

Up until my third year in secondary school (JSS 3), I had my life together. I attended a ‘Christian’ school, which somehow limited my exposure to certain vices. But the rest of my years in secondary school was spent in a different school, one which wrecked me.

I’d heard stories about how ‘bad’ the school was, and morally bankrupt the students were. And my experiences on getting there proved the stories right.

I had a passion for technology and started programming in my third year in secondary school. But from my very first year in the new school, my life lost every order it had. I made the wrong kind of friends and this got me inordinately involved with girls. This was how I lost my focus. Our interactions often centered on nothing but girls. I so much lost focus and direction that I stopped programming altogether.

My mind works in a peculiar way. Whenever I find an interest, I tend to engage it on a deep level and my associations in Senior Secondary School, and all that we engaged in, proved to be quite unhealthy for me. I was this way until I left school an event which saw me (intentionally) cut ties with these friends. I didn’t want the type of life I saw us tending toward but the seed had already been sown. All the time we spent focusing on nothing, but sexual immorality had left its imprint on me. I felt helpless about these things.

For a while, I was mostly home alone, and this seemed to provide an opportunity for me to get worse. I didn’t want to go to hell, so I’d always cry to God even after I did these things, then I’d return to them.

I hardly went out of my house but whenever I did, I tried hard not to look at females because the moment I did, wrong thoughts would flood my mind. It was so bad that one time I went with my family for a praise vigil at my church, and all that night I couldn’t concentrate because a lady who stayed a row in front of me was dancing.

I watched myself degrade slowly daily. I somehow knew that I was headed for doom, but it was like I couldn’t do anything about it.

It’s amazing how God has a way of making the best of our worst. He did so with me.

I met change the night I had a female friend come over to the house. My plan was simple: to have my way with her. But before we even got in on the act, she said she was tired. Being angry and frustrated, I asked her to leave. She did, and when she did, it felt like my troubles left with her.

I thought about my life that night. It was like I could suddenly see the timeline of my life. I saw how badly I needed help and, in that moment, I completely surrendered to Jesus, the One who had been reaching out to me through the years.

I made a decision that night, one which altered my life forever. How do I even describe the transformation which took place? Almost immediately, I started coding again! And that, for me, summarizes the transformation.

More than anything, I am grateful for His mercy towards me that He made me a brand-new man.

You know Reckless Love by Cory Asbury? That song comes to describing How I feel each day I remember how far Jesus has brought me.

I am ever thankful to Jesus for saving me from me.
