As a digital influencer, we’re always sharing bits and pieces of our lives on the internet and the cool things we’re passionate about. The side you rarely get to see if my day-to-day walk with Christ and the huge role God plays in every aspect of my life and business. I rarely get to share this part of my story and the truth is, I used to be shy about it. I used to think we lived in an online world where we had to stay away from religious topics of discussion. Honestly and openly speaking here, my religion isn’t about the religion. For me it’s about sharing the love and incredible testimony that God has given me. If you met me 5-plus years ago, you wouldn’t recognize me. I was very lost, insecure and put all of my happiness in people, feelings and career. I knew there was a call on my life but for various reasons (including family and cultural expectations) I knew the foundation of my happiness needed to be re-shaped and focused on God. When I prayed and asked God to reveal who he was, he showed up overnight. Literally. As I continued to pray and pursue Him, my life goals became so much more clear. I finally felt this happiness from within – one that wasn’t based on people, emotions, or things. It’s incredible what can happen when you open your ears and listen to God.
This video was an intimate interview I did with CBN. The network really wanted to help inspire people through my story. We’re living in a crazy time right now and I think we need more love stories like this spread into the world (and internet!) I knew doing an interview like this could potentially bring some negativity out from the internet world but I’m proud of my testimony and I’m not afraid to share it. No disrespect to anyone who may have different beliefs, I am truly just sharing my personal testimony. Because, this is the root of my happiness! We all come from different walks of life and I think its important that we do not judge or discriminate each other – especially those who do not believe Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. All I ask in return is that I am not judged for my beliefs.
I also want to address the comment I made when I said “This Jesus Guy.” When I was first introduced to Christ in my dreams, I knew little to nothing about Him. I didn’t even know what to think at first! He was a stranger in my mind but I felt Him in my heart. That feeling led me to pursuing Him more and like I said, getting to know him for the first time through a series of dreams I had. My relationship with Him has grown so much since those dreams and He continues to reveal amazing things to me in my dreams. I see now, He is more than just a guy – to me, He is the light in this world. I wasn’t implying anything offensive, just wanted to clarify that. 🙂
Thank you to the CBN crew for such a incredible piece that I can’t wait to show my kids one day.
