Well, I’m not sure where to start, but I would like to share how God delivered me and healed me from homosexuality. This journey started the first day I went to church. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 is the scripture that convicted me to get saved. At that time, I was in a same-sex relationship with someone and we had gone to that service together. But by the time we got in the car, we mutually decided to end our relationship and pursue getting right with God.
I began regularly attending Sunday service and reading the Bible a lot. I had the privilege of reading at work and took full advantage. While aggressively reading the Bible, God began to change my view on how I had been living before to what His truth was. As a result, my identity, which I thought I had found in same-sex relationships, now became rooted in Christ. I also read a book about leaving homosexuality and God spoke to me through it as well.
As God began to peel back the layers, he began bringing incidents to mind from my childhood involving both men and women. What with having an absent father, it all began to make sense how I ended up where I was at 22 years of age. I didn’t understand why I liked women over men and had the desires I had. All I knew was that it was wrong. All I wanted to be was happy, but  being happy was to disobey God, so I had a constant mental struggle knowing that.

I allowed God to mold me and gave up trying. I had to just go back to nothing…no thoughts…no previous opinions. Pretty much everything I knew, I had to forget, and I let God fill me with the truth. Most of my life I had dressed like a guy, but one day, when I was supposed to be getting dressed, I began hating the clothes in my closet. As God changed the inside of me, the outside changed as well. I got rid of my entire wardrobe and began to buy women’s clothes, and for the first time in my life, I felt feminine.

I never thought I would be the woman I am today. I give all glory to God. It wasn’t an easy or overnight transformation, and God is still changing me into the woman He intended me to be, but I COULDN’T have done it without God. I thank God for all I went through and how He is being glorified through my life. I’m living proof that God can and does heal homosexuals. I am a new creation! ~. Call on Jesus name He won’t let u down.

Great news since Jocelyn submitted her testimony was recently married. God is Good!
