LIGHTING UP THE DARK PLACES

                                                                                                           In this self-reflection, Robert Johns shares his raw and powerful testimony for the first                                                                                                               time ever, in its entirety. Johns lets us get up close and personal recalling the multiple                                                                                                           times he was molested as child and dealt with rejection and abandonment. He walks us                                                                                                         through his introduction to Christ and details the two occasions that he has ran from God                                                                                                     and the calling on his life. He shows his vulnerability in giving the transparent details of his                                                                                                      sexual immorality. He goes further to discuss his abuse of alcohol and how it hindered him                                                                                                     from advancing in many areas of his life.  Johns exposes all of this just to let the world know how the LOVE and POWER of Christ can and will transform all of those who believe and submit unto him. Johns believes that he is only a mere example of this. He seeks to let the reader know that God is able to do so much more for them, if only they would truly ask and be ready to receive. 

"Although I had repented for my sins and acknowledged they were wrong, I hadn’t reached a place in my walk where I regretted the “fun” I was having. I had always looked at my sins as things that affected only me, but I came to realize they grieved the heart of God. "
