A pastor’s son became so addicted to pornography that he lied to his parents to spend hours looking at porn. He also became suicidal until God spoke to his mom.
Michael Wood grew up as a pastor’s kid. He grew up knowing God and experiencing His love. However, at 15 years old, he suddenly developed an addiction to pornography. His addiction went out of control to the point that he would cut pictures from magazines and bring them to school. In school, at home, and even at church, it was all he was thinking about all the time.
One day, Michael lied to his parents in order to stay home on the weekend instead of visiting his grandparents’ home. He would then spend hours watching porn alone in his room. At first, he would cry and ask God for forgiveness after watching it. But as time went by, he got used to it and stopped asking God for forgiveness. And soon after, the teen became suicidal and idolized bands promoting death.
God Spoke To Michael’s Mom
Until one moment when Michael’s mom was praying, God spoke to her heart. God convicted her to do something about her kids. So the mother took her kids and even Michael against his will to a church youth group.
Michael hated it and wanted to leave the church. But while the worship was going on, he felt the love of God that he knew as a child.
“I felt that same love of God that I’ve known as a child. And that same touch and that same conviction of God that was saying ‘what you’re doing is wrong. But there’s a love here, there’s a power here that’s great enough to set you free,’” he recounted.
Michael couldn’t help but be pulled by that force of love, and he responded to the altar call. Tears ran down his face, and the power of Jesus changed his life.
See what God did to Michael’s life!
