In this video Joshua reflects on how he wasted so much time making bad choices as a teen, following the wrong crowd, being a drop out, drug addict, dealer, delinquent, and close encounters with death. For a while Satan had a hold on his soul, but through God’s mercy and the prayers of his family, God saved him through it all.
"I battle in myself, the war is real I tell ya/ I wrestle with my sins and struggle with my failures/" The Bible says that we all fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). Because of this, people around the world are wrestling with their failures and the demonic forces (Eph. 6:10-20) that come with them (depression, despair, suicide, etc. "And the darkness traveled just like an arrow and it pierce my soul/ My bones and marrow it tore apart, and it left me cold/" "In a place with a gun on my waist with a voice in my head saying shoot it/ In a place where I fell from grace Lord please help me to get through it/ "Whether its failures in our careers, marriages, families or relationship with God, the truth is we all fail in this life. Failing to live up to all of these expectations can be disappointing but God is there to help us all. What we couldn't do Jesus did for us on the cross (John 3:16). "And His light traveled just like an arrow and it pierced my soul/ But it healed my heart, it healed my mind and it made me whole/" He died for our sins and has provided eternal grace for our constant failures. Therefore I rather boast in my infirmities (weakness/failures) than my strengths/achievements, that the power of Christ may rest upon me (2 Cor. 12:9).
