Social media sensation Brenda Jons has given her life to Christ weeks after announcing her detachment from the LGBTQ community.
Sharing her life testimony in a lengthy social media post, the comedienne said that she gave her life to Christ but fell off her faith after losing a loved one.
"13 years ago, I first gave my life to Christ. I didn't know what it really meant to be born again but I remember saying the words, 'my life will never be the same again.' 8 years later, a pastor did an altar call and this time I knew exactly what it meant. It meant I had to lay everything down and serve God in truth and in spirit. I knew it was what I was made to do and so I walked to the altar and officially gave my life to Christ and immediately started serving Him.
"Along the journey, something happened and for once in my salvation I wondered why God would take away someone I loved yet I was just serving Him faithfully, I could not understand," read her post in part.

Brenda says she yearned for a relationship with God and therefore tried everything in her power to get back to Christ.
However, Brenda disclosed that she got entangled in sexual sin and embraced a worldly life, with her faith almost nonexistent.
"God had really inspired me to really lead and talk about sexual sin and a good friend once told me that the demon that you publicly fight, will be used to greatly test your faith… I didn't take it deeply but Lord oh Lord... It unfolded that same way...I fell off my walk of faith and I both engaged in and fought sexual sin and many more sins... wueh! God sent many people to talk to me and remind me of where my identity is (in Him) but I was too deaf to His call and too blind to His light as He called me home," she added.
Despite the shame and guilt, Brenda says God delivered and forgave her sins, hence her bold step to get saved again.
"I was too soaked and ashamed of my sin so I rejected His call and as He is... HE MADE ME WALK AROUND THE WHOLE ESTATE JUST TO GET ME NEXT DOOR...for His glory's sake. Wueh and now here I am, telling you that He is real and despite any private or public sin I had, I am fully forgiven, fully healed and all the chains are broken and grace has taken that place now! I AM BORN AGAIN! That's my testimony, bye now!!!!"
Brenda's testimony comes a few weeks after she dissociated herself from the LGBTQ community, explaining that it was not her identity.
"The reason is quite deep. I feel like that side of my life was a phase that I had to go through and I went through it. That wasn't really my identity. It wasn't who I am," she said.
