In 2018, I experienced the love and glory of the Father for the first time. I understood that the God of Israel was more than just words on a paper, or stories of those who encountered Him. He is real, and the tangible, breathtaking, and consuming love of Jesus radically changed my perspective. It was these encounters, and deliverance from a multitude of lies and wicked mindsets, that led to victory in the fiercest battle of my life: OCD. For those nine years, I thought it was impossible to be free. However, I was that one sheep out in the wilderness whom the Master could not leave behind (Luke 15:1-3). Jesus relentlessly fought for me until I surrendered. He said to me: “I am strong enough to set you free. Will you let me?” After witnessing the inconceivable and living the breakthrough, I realized that the crucified life is the key to habitation with God. Now I have the power to live solely for the smile of my Beloved and desire to encourage other followers to abandon and reject every wicked and sinful way of the world and experience the fulfillment and freedom of complete surrender to Jesus. My journey has taught mem that God is faithful, and He is worthy of it all.
