This week I am sharing 3 important testimonies from 3 special friends of mine whose lives answer this question:
Can homosexuals change?
Patty is a dear friend of mine. When she heard we were writing our new book Not Open:Win the Invisible Spiritual Culture War, she sent me her story to share with the world.
I am so proud of Patty!! And I am so proud of Jesus!
I was there to witness her miracle transformation with the food box ladies. And I am so glad she is willing to tell you what happened!
So without further delay... please meet my friend and sister in the Lord, Patty.
"My history does not define who I am. The Bible says so. Therefore if any man be in Christ old things are passed away. Behold all things are new. 2 Corinthians 5:17
In 1980, while in the army, I came out of the closet as a lesbian. I got into radical feminism and was pro-choice.
I claimed to be an atheist for a while, then I was into reincarnation and claimed Shirley MacLaine was God.
Christmas 2000: A couple women left a box of food at my door. They left a Bible in the box. (The Bible made me mad.)
February 2001: I attended a Bible study at the church that left me the Bible. I was in this church to disturb its people's peace. These people just loved and prayed for me.
May 16, 2001: I asked for my salvation on a Wednesday night in a friend's car. I woke on Thursday morning with no homosexual desires. I was prolife and I knew that Shirley MacLaine was not God.
For about 10 days I had minor identity problems and experienced a little fear because of the sudden change. My friend Nancy taught me this scripture: For God has not given us the spirit of fear but of power and love and a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
In August 2013, I still am in the process of healing wounds from my previous life. I am strong and have no desire to return to the past mess of a life I once lived.
I wake up every morning and go to bed every night knowing that my Heavenly Father loves me and performs miracles in my daily life."
Do you know someone who needs this miracle in their life? Will you share Patty's testimony with them?
