God has given me such a gracious opportunity to connect with many people throughout the world who also fight the inward battle of same sex attraction, and I am so thankful that He’s done so. Among the hundreds that I’ve spoken and connected with, the Lord has impressed this one young woman heavily upon my heart. The Lord actually led me to Priscilla, not knowing that she shared the same struggle as me, but as she so eloquently shares in this audio with a group of high school kids, she too lived a life in blatant rebellion against God while exploring and enjoying the gay lifestyle. She now radiates the glory of Christ and has been clearly, as you will see and hear, anointed to reach the homosexual community with her story of the redemption found in Jesus Christ.
Below is an introduction Priscilla wrote for you all to read prior to listening to her story in more detail. I will post the link to her testimony on sermon audio right below her written overview of who she is. Be blessed by it, because I surely was. I look forward, with much anticipation and expectancy, to working with Priscilla in communicating to homosexuals the true, undefiled and saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
“My name is Priscilla, I am 21 years old and I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This is my story.
Around the age of 7, I began to have a sexual attraction towards girls.
Throughout my public school years, my hormones began to ravage and my attraction to females greatened. I never knew it was possible for people of the same sex to date and I never really understood my emotions. However, my deep desire towards the same sex became a reality once I hit high school. People were more open and accepting of my feelings. My first homosexual encounter was my freshman year with a girl who was in her 20s. I loved it. It was a thrilling, yet comforting. It was different yet, normal. It was rebellious, yet safe. Throughout high school, I involved myself with numerous homosexual relationships. Some of a few years, a few months, or some a hit and quit type of thing.
My attraction was solely towards females. Guys were not very attractive to me. Plus, they all wanted one thing. None of them were capable of love and all I wanted was to be loved. Girls, as I am one myself, are capable of love and that is what I wanted.
In high school, I got involved in the party and rave scene. I went from an amateur raver, too hanging with the top drug dealers. After high school, not only was I involved in the drug scene, but I also had a girl who I had fell madly in love with. For her, I was willing to give up my school, my family, my friends, and my job… my life.
My life was at the top of the world, but slowly it started to fall apart piece by piece. Every night I wish I didn’t wake up, hoping this last high would be the end of me. Oddly enough, a friend who I used to party with came back into my life. He was telling me that he has stopped partying and is living for Christ. He was a Christian now. I hated Christians. All of the Christians I knew called me filthy and disgusting. I thought he was weird, but a part of me wanted to listen. He loved me and accepted me.
For a few months, my friend would constantly talk to me about Christ. How He was real, how He lived, how He died for my sins, and how He rose to forgive them. I probably wasn’t the easiest person to talk to about God and till this day I appreciate his patience with me. God used my friend to call me. God used random people from the streets, to tell me about Jesus.
God saved me January of 2011. Even though I lived a very rebellious lifestyle, God’s hand was upon me. He has transformed and saved my life. Forever I will thank Him. God took me as I was, filthy in sin… and washed me clean with the blood of His Son.
It has been a struggle, but without God I could not have done any of this. God did not save me from homosexuality… He saved me from sin. Homosexuality, just being a part of my sinful nature.
I have such a heart for the homosexual community. I want to personally apologize if a person who has claimed the name of Christ has ever hurt you. That is not the love that Jesus showed on the cross. I know that your feelings are real and I want you to know that I understand them. Please, know that there is a God out there that loves you and died for you. He rose three days later, to show the truth of that love. I hope that my story glorifies God and blesses someone’s life. Thank you for taking the time to read and listen to my testimony. God bless.”
