Finding Freedom

I’m a Torres Strait Islander. Currently studying grade 11, in school. I’ve been in church for a long time. I didn’t see God is a loving Father, I saw him as someone I had to please and work for. You know, and it affected my life Because I was able to go to church on Sunday, but then still go and look up pornography. I was living this life of the things I wanted to do, but I couldn’t do them, and there were things I did but I wish I didn’t. It was a constant struggle. Once I understood who I was, my identity in Jesus. I decided to believe that, and like that day, Like obviously a lot of things broke off and I got free straight away. Like pornography, I didn’t get free from it because I tried. I got free from it because, from that place of being and knowing God and just enjoying God there was no there was no more praying to the ceiling. You know, because I know that God lives inside of me. You can be free from your sin. You know, you don’t have to keep struggling, to get free. You can be free. It’s so simple. You know, all you got to do is repent. You walk this way in life, you’re going this way, you find out about Jesus, you turn around the old person’s gone, you’re a brand-new person, you’re righteous and you’re clean before your Father. Right, and then when you do go and when you stuff up. Instead of letting it bring you down you just confess your sins to God and say, “God, this is not who I am.” Yeah, so he’s been speaking to me a lot in the scriptures now when I’m reading, it’s like no way that’s who I am, I can do that. It’s just like really clear. God doesn’t change, Like one thing I love about the Gospel, like what Jesus did 2,000 years ago Is that it still works today. Like people can still be free, today.
