Well friends, I’m ending 2021 with a bang! Don’t miss listening to this miracle story on the last podcast episode of the year, Welcome Home Prodigal.
Tune in for this special podcast episode as my brother, Nathan shares his powerful testimony for the first time publically. For most of his life, he has lived a crazy life of rebellion. He was running the streets, selling/doing drugs, doing crime, being promiscuous, angry, and running from God.
Well, last year we took a family camping trip and I didn’t want him there. But he came and as I knew he would, he unleashed his demons. Everything became chaotic as he stirred up drama within the family.
I announced to some of my family afterward, something I’ve never said. “I love Nathan and will continue to pray for him but unless he gets radically saved, I want nothing to do with him.”
Nathan has always had a preachers calling on his life. He has always carried authority and influence, has even brought drug dealers to flushing their drugs down the toilet, under the conviction of the holy spirit. We were raised with the fear of God so he knows the truth but has never been ready to surrender.
He should be dead. I mean deader than dead. But God has protected him, it’s really crazy. He has survived car accidents that would kill most, people tried to kill him, jail tried to end him…there were so many times the enemy tried to take him out.
Fast forward to earlier this year, God got his attention. My brother completely surrendered his life to Christ. I mean surrendered it all. He even gave up things and habits that he loved that were not sinful, out of obedience to God.
He told me recently, “God is urging me to die to self. I got rid of things that had a hold on me, like the gym, video games, music, lust..all of it. Leah, you inspire me and help me grow. You’re so beautiful.” 😭
The Holy Spirit is working through me to mentor and disciple him, as we face time almost every day. I encourage him to live obedient no matter the cost and to cultivate a deep relationship with Jesus.
THE PRODIGAL SON HAS RETURNED HOME. 😭😭
His father saw his lost son and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.” – Luke 15: 11-32
Thank you Jesus. There ain’t no sinner that you can’t save.
God has literally turned this mans life around.
If you are praying and hoping for a family member to get saved, Don’t give up. God performs miracles. Watch him do it! 🙌🙌
