Redeemed



My Testimony of how Christ saved me!

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony" Revelation 12:11


I am not ashamed of my past because Christ has set me free. My closet is open, there are no skeletons to hide. I am no longer a slave to the opinions of man, I am a slave to the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that when people hear my testimony, they will know that Christ can set them from anything!



I was raised in the church and vividly remember talking about Jesus as a young girl. Growing up, I had a great childhood. Some bad things happened, but for the most part I had loving parents who spoiled me rotten! Middle school and high school years were great. I was a cheerleader, Class President, popular, had lots of friends, and was always having fun. Since middle school, I always had a little boyfriend and at that time I didn't realize I was using guys to fill the voids in my life. I remained a virgin throughout high school, went to church, and read my bible sometimes but my heart was still far from God. 


                  College Years (2007-2011)


"That man don't love you like he need to if he ain't following Christ, he can't lead you"



 I went off to college and did all the things my sinful heart desired. I attended Albany State University and everyone knows that's like the biggest party school ever. We literally partied Monday-Saturday. As a freshman, God was drawing me but I ignored Him for the most part. I went to bible study on campus but I lived like God didn't exist. I partied, got drunk, cursed, had sex, and did all the very things that God detests. I still thought I was saved because I repeated the "sinner's prayer" when I was younger, but my whole life contradicted what God's word said a true Christian was. I went to church when I was home, but my heart was so hardened I wasn't moved or phased by anything that was going on in church. I was living my own little double life. Pretending to be "mommy and daddy sweet angel" but behind their back doing the very things that I know they wouldn't condone. Now when you compared me to most girls my age, I was considered a "good girl" but compared to the word of God I was filthy and the little girl who grew up in church was on the way to hell! Sometimes we are so quick to compare ourselves to our friends and other people who call themselves "Christians" and think we are okay because they are doing the same things we are doing. But when we compare ourselves to the word of God we really see where we line up at! Our "little" sins is a BIG deal to God!


"I know you're the apple of momma's eyes, a star in your daddy's sky but God knows you living a lie..you giving a guy everything your husband deserves it's absurd don't follow your feelings just follow the word"

               My freshman year I got involved with 
an upperclassmen. He was the biggest liar ever, and pretended to be a good guy in front of me. All of these girls hated me over him and I didn't understand why. I got my car keyed, in the first fight of my life, and was on some "exposed" site because of him. I knew that I shouldn't have been with him but I didn't want to be alone. I was so empty and I thought I was in love when it was definitely not. After two years of lies and heartbreaks I finally ended it with him and moved on. Of course I didn't heal because I was so quick to jump into something else like most women do. My junior year I got involved with another guy. He was the epitome of a liar,deceiver,and manipulator.I don't know what drew me to him but I was empty and lonely and was trying to let these guys fill the void that only Christ could fill. He was everything  that the previous guy wasn't. We talked all day about everything, was together all the time, and he was  down to earth. But his bad definitely outweighed his good. Too many times women think that having a boyfriend  or even getting married will fill that emptiness and space in our heart but  that's a lie. We look to men as our idol, and look to them to fill all of our needs, desires, and make us happy. You will still feel that void because only Christ can fill it. Of course the whole time I knew he wasn't God's best for me but I was okay with living a lie pretending like I was happy like most women do.


              The Awakening (2011-2012)


No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day. (John 6:44)


I decided to move back home and take classes online until I graduated, and that was the best decision I made that year. I had to get away from that college lifestyle people were living. It's like once you get around a lot of immorality you get desensitized to it, and the things you thought were abnormal have now become normal. God started drawing me like crazy and stripping things away from me. I decided to end the little "situationship" that I was in and  made the vow in December 2011 that I would not have sex again until I was married.  I was tired of being hurt and misused by guys who didn't value me. I always knew that sex outside of marriage was a sin against God, but I ignored what God said because I loved my sin and pleasure more than I loved Him. The last time I went to the club I was actually sober (for the first time EVER lol). When you're intoxicated everything is exciting and fun, when you're sober you see everything clearly for what it was. On this day I saw clubbing exactly for what is was. I looked around with disgust realizing I didn't want to live my life like this is. I made up my mind in in April 2012 that I was done with clubbing and drinking.


                     Born Again (2012)


Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” (John 3:3)



May 27, 2012 was the best day of my life, Christ saved me! For the first time in my life I met God's conviction for my sin..yet His love, grace, and mercy. I realized that I was a filthy sinner deserving of hell, and how undeserving I was of God's love and grace. Romans 5:8 came alive to me, "God demonstrates His love in this.  While I was yet a sinner Christ died for me!" On this day, I repented and believed on the Lord Jesus Christ. The weight of sin was lifted off of me and I saw the beauty in what Christ did on the cross for me. I weeped with joy! I was so self-deceived in the past, thinking I was saved because I was raised in the church, baptized and said the "sinner's prayer." In actuality, I had only recited a prayer and had gotten wet. There had been no conviction of sin, no repentance, no saving faith, and no regeneration. I was a FALSE CONVERT and my life proved it. I was not stun' God, I didn't care what His word said about how I lived, I didn't fear Him, honor Him and I didn't live according to His standards. I realized it wasn't enough to go to church, go through the motions, and profess Christ with my mouth while I denied Him with my life.

"My face look the same, my frame done rearranged but I changed, I promise I ain't the same. Your love is so deep, you suffered and took pain and died on the cross to give me a new name"

 Immediately after Christ saved me, I had such a desperation and hunger to read His word and know Him. It's like the scales fell from my eyes and I begin to see clearly. I saw the state that the world is in, and how most people are lost and on the way to hell and don't even know it. I begun to hate the things of this world and love God and the things of God. I realized how vain the partying, drinking, pre-marital sex, and the overall pursuit of a life without God was. I wanted to please God with everything and I was willing to cut off anything and anyone to grow closer to Him. I didn't have any saved friends at the time, it was just me and God. The Lord begun to convict me about the godless music that I listened to and the shows I watched.  I begun to only feed my spirit with sermons, blogs, and Christian music. I also started watching the P4cm poets, and listening to preachers like David Wilkerson and Paul washer who preaches the true unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ. They really helped me to grow and understand so  much about the gospel!

Passion For Christ


"Drag my name through the mud,they can hate they can gossip, but my passion for Jesus,they ain't never gone stop it!



Christ has  completely transformed my life and is healing me from all the pain that I experienced in my past. I just can't keep my mouth shut about my Jesus!! People don't understand why I'm so passionate about Christ because they don't know what He's done for me. I don't want Him just for blessings and material things that will fade away. I NEED Christ like my next breath. He is my comforter, provider, and best friend. I now know what true love is. It wasn't found in guys or sex, it was found in Him. I cut off ALL guys when I got saved, because I no longer wanted to date around to fill a void. By the grace of God, I've been celibate for 4 years and vow to wait until marriage. Even though it's been hard trusting God in my singleness I'm waiting for God to send my husband, a man who is after His heart who will lead me and truly love me. God has also sent me new Godly friends who are also on fire and strive to live on this narrow path. 


I'm not ashamed to say that I struggle and need God;s grace because in my weakness I experience the power of the cross and God is glorified! I haven't forgotten about where God has brought me from. I'm not better than anyone. I'm simply a product of the redemptive power of the Lord Jesus Christ. I'm a wretched sinner saved by a gracious and merciful God. I have never experience peace,joy, and love like this. Sometimes I sit and weep when I think about how Christ has changed my life. I'm not going to pretend like living in the world wasn't fun. I had a blast at times, but when the fun wore off it was right back to the same ol' emptiness. Even after the fun nights, after the after party, after the sex, after the spring break vacations life still sucks without Jesus. Plus, none of this stuff was worth my soul. True fulfillment, joy, love and peace only comes from a life fully surrendered to Jesus Christ!

  
 Christ can save you from whatever you are bound to: fornication, homosexuality, adultery, low self esteem, drug addiction, masturbation, alcoholism, and depression. Jesus came to seek and save that which are lost. My hope and prayers is that after reading my testimony, that everyone will truly examine themselves to scripture! This life is temporal and within 100 years we all will be dead, do you know where you will spend eternity?


             I am Brittany Jay and my testimony continues...

  5. I'm speechless after reading this. As you know we both know how that Albany State living could be and although we weren't close for me to know what was really going on, I completely understand. You and I have similar stories and I am very very happy to see that you are truly happy now. Not gon lie, your "new" Facebook popped up on my TL one day and I raised an eyebrow. I wasn't shocked that you have a relationship with God, it just wasn't common to see all of that coming from you. I love the change in you and I love the God in you. You are an inspiration to all around you and I wish you nothing but success! #Salute fellow Ram!

  7. Miss Brittany J., your amazing testimony has truly made a difference in my life. I've been a virgin all my life, with nothing but failure at starting a sexual courtship with a woman of my dreams. For a while, I felt tempted by impatience to cast aside my virginity and abstinence before finally settling down and getting married to a good woman. God DID NOT allow me to succeed at sexually interacting with a woman to end my virginity during my unmarried state. Whether it was God's chastening (discipline) or something else entirely (probably my Asperger's autism syndrome), I know that I only failed, with no success. I repeatedly felt very miserable and frustrated to the point of breaking down in tears because of my failure. Brittany, both You and I know that God sometimes frustrates our plans for a reason, a good reason. Brittany, Almighty God used your powerful testimony to clarify to me that I am already on the right track as regards virginity and abstinence before marriage, and that I would be better off if I stay as I am until He send the right woman for me, then everything will go well for me and for her. God will be well pleased with that.

    As you know, Brittany, I was a student at Albany State at the same time you were, and I saw the "hot mess" you were during those days with my own eyes. Brittany I am absolutely STUNNED and AMAZED at what Jesus Christ has done to you, and for you. Personally, I shed a few tears when I first noticed the profound change in you, and read so many of your Twitter tweets that preached exactly the same sound doctrine that God had already taught me in the past. I believe God literally allowed us (You and I) to cross paths for a reason. Maybe He wanted me to observe both the "Old Brittany" and your change to the "New Brittany" as a WARNING to me NOT to veer off into sexual immorality and the other sins associated with it. God wanted me to know that I was already on the right track as regards virginity and abstinence before marriage. God moves in mysterious ways; He moves in ways that we humans CANNOT comprehend. He uses the most unexpected people, things, and circumstances to correct the lives of His spiritual children.

    Brittany, I may NEVER NEVER NEVER cross paths with you in person ever again now that you are finished with Albany State and Albany, Georgia, so please remember that I am immensely proud of you, just as your parents are very very proud of you right now. I am very glad that you have forsaken your former lifestyle, repented, and became a new creature in Christ (a genuine child of God). I rejoice over your repentance just as your parents and the angels in heaven are rejoicing right now. Brittany, I urge you to stay on fire for Jesus Christ, and to bravely press on with the divine mission of preaching that God has set before you to accomplish. God has already used you to make a big positive difference, not only in my life, but also in the lives of many other people. God will fulfill the prophecy of your church pastor by saving a great many more people through you in the future. God bless you Brittany. Amen.

  9. Hi Brittany, I have just become friends with you on Facebook. Your testimony was very eye opening. I know how the college lifestyle can be. Regardless of how a person may be raised up in the church, they can still turn away from what they were taught at home. For myself I was fortunate not to do alot of clubbing, partying, and drinking and stuff. Although I did try those things. The influence and temptation of those things can be so strong when you go to college because you no longer have your parents telling you what you can or cannot do. You have a greater free will to do whatever you desire. By the grace of God, he didn't allow me to fall into those things. He kept me and I will always be able to tell people that. Just like Norgel I am still a virgin and its all because of God. I did struggle with pornography and lust. And even now God is still completely setting me free from that. So I ask that you would keep me in prayer about that.
    Also I struggled with low self worth, timidity, and fear in college and since I was growing up. But God is bringing me out. I have learned that my self with is in him. I am a witness to the great things that God will do in a person's life when we let him use us. He has done some great things in your life and 6 months isn't even a great amount of time! God is good!!! But I implore you to keep telling your testimony and keep doing what God has called you to do. Reading your testimony gave me hope for somethings and was a breath of fresh air. He has great things in store for you as he has for anybody who will serve him. You have gotten me excited and thrilled about what God is capable of doing! Lol. God bless you and keep it up. I look forward to hearing about another update from you!

  11. Awesome testimony and I'm so glad I discovered your blog. I got saved in July last year and it is the best decision I've EVER made. Christ has changed me from the inside out, and for the life of me I don't know why it took me so long to 'get' it, now I do there is NO TURNING BACK. I am completely on fire for Jesus and everything you say I can completely relate to, turning away from sin, grieving for all the lost souls, hungry to know Jesus more, passionate about witnessing. It leaves me awe struck when I think of how Christ has changed me in just six short months. What an AWESOME, merciful God we serve. Praise His name forever.

  12. Praise God, just want to encourage you to keep the faith. It's not easy telling about how dark we used to live but what it does for others is what God want. It allow others to be healed and set free. From your testimony you have the ability to set free non-believers as well as believers. Because truth be told, Christians struggle with some of the things you talked about but to know that someone has been set free will also give them Hope that they will be too. I love you and proud of you...God bless....

  13. All glory to God for the work he has done and will continue to do in your life. it's not easy at all to be young and on fire for Christ, but I wouldn't change it for anything in this world. I mean when it's all said and done these things will perish. Love you sis and I'm praying for you constantly.

    God bless you.

  36. Wow! I belive this has come at the right time for me when I have just decided to be serious on my journey to His Kingdom. I have been tempted a week ago and I almost gave in to sexual immorality. But the love and peace I felt when I first yes to Jesus wouldn't let me. Although I knew God forgave me I couldn't forgive myself. I turned to God and told Him I'm failing with my own strength and letting him fix me seems the best and only way that works for me. I'm grateful he led me to reading your testimony. I now truly believe I'm not alone in this battle. God bless you and continue to groom you. And thank you so much for your testimony.

  42. Brittany! Hey boo!! I've never read your testimony until just now. I read and like all of your posts on Facebook, because they hit so close to home. Girl your testimony literally brought tears to my eyes. Like seriously! It's a blessing to see how Christ can grow in a person. I pray everyday that I grow closer and closer to our Lord and Savior. Whether you believe it or not you are truly an inspiration to some. Girl I see Christ in you. He's in your talk, in your walk, and in your overall presence. I'm still a work in progress. I've fled from smoking, drinking, and going out every weekend. I'm trying and I must say IT IS NOT EASY.! But I know the overall reward will be worth it. A scripture that got me through when I was at my absolute worst and nearly had my life taken away from me is Psalm 40: "I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD. Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods. Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare. Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced; burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require. Then I said, "Here I am, I have come-- it is written about me in the scroll. I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart." I proclaim righteousness in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, as you know, O LORD. I do not hide your righteousness in my heart; I speak of your faithfulness and salvation..." I wish the best for you Brittany! Keep inspiring! You have a story to tell. . . Thank you for blessing me pretty girl! God Bless your heart!

  44. VERY VERY VERY ENCOURAGING, I TOO WAS LIVING A VERY SELF-DESTUCTING LIFE THAT I AM TRYING TO GET AWAY FROM, BY TRANSFORMING MY LIFE, BECAUSE I AM SEEKING GOD. I DON'T WANT TO BE LIKE SOME PEOPLE THAT CLAIM TO BE CHRISTIANS BUT ARE THE BIGGEST SINNERS THEN SAY "WELL I'm A WORK IN PROGRESS" I HATE WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAY THAT. I WANT TO HATE SIN JUST AS MUCH AS GOD DOES. I AM MARRIED AND CURRENTLY A ROCKY MARRIAGE AND DUE TO LACK OF SEX BETWEEN MYSELF AND ,MY SPOUSE MASTURBATION IS MY WAY OUT AND A SIN I AM BATTLING WITH. GOD CALLED ME OUT ON THIS A FEW DAYS AGO AND I AM PRAYING FOR HIS STRENGTH TO TURN AWAY FROM THIS SIN.

  51. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful testimony. I've been struggling with a few things in my life, trying to convince myself it's alright and I'm not really sinning, but I see that those thoughts are lies from the devil and with God's help right now I am overcoming. You are an amazing woman of God and I pray He would bless you abundantly. :)

  53. Somehow I found your blog after typing "why does google hate Jesus"..lol. I wanted to know, but didn't really expect to find anything; however I did find your testimony and it was a fantastic read. I can almost completely identify with it coming from the man's perspective (as far as it goes, but much of what you talked about leaving behind is the same). Your comments on how the world views Christians are profound and I enjoyed reading all of it very much. -Bobby
