‘7 years ago today I got was arrested, not my finest hour. Not proud of where I was in my life. I was hurting, was unhappy, confused, angry, misunderstood and angry at god.

He went on to directly address his followers, telling them: ‘My encouragement to you is ‘let your past be a reminder of how far god has brought you. Do not allow shame to ruin your today’, let the forgiveness of Jesus take over and watch your life blossom into all that God has designed you to be. LOVE YOU GUYS WITH MY WHOLE HEART.’
