Brothers, Curtis and Justin Hartshorn, share their experiences of wandering away from their faith and how God broke the chains in their lives, allowing them to follow Him in freedom ever since.

Curtis says: "Truth of my testimony is that I believed in Jesus Christ, but because of anger and bitterness due to being treated poorly by several "Christians," I rebelled. I handed myself over to the demonic through sin and an obsession with darkness. They had got access points in my life, they tormented me. They harmed me in many ways. Eventually Jesus awakened me and showed me the reality of the demonic and the state of my heart. I repented of the sin, He set me free…broke the chains in my life and I've been following Him in freedom ever since. During this whole process, Jesus never left my side once. He was always there with me and He would always pursue me even when I was in the darkest moments. He was always there, it was like He was sitting beside me and that's it, I can never escape Him, I can never outrun Him."

Justin was raised in a church going family but in high school he became "churchless" and was doing his "own thing." In his heart, Justin was feeling bitter about the church leadership and God. Within three months, Justin was a different person. He had changed 100% and was involved in drugs and alcohol. For six years he lived the life of an addict. No matter what he did, Justin couldn't quit his addictions. Justin began to see the change in his brother, and one night while talking with Curtis and a pastor, he experienced a life change. He says "My testimony is one of 'I was living life as an addict and I had people warring for me and those people saved my life.'"

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
