Spiritual Creature is a family that was born when I was saved by grace. Stoked on the way, truth, and life that is Jesus Christ. It hasn't always been this way. Let me tell you a story...
I used to fill my life with worldly thrills. Sex. Drugs. Rock n Roll.
In the Spring of 2006, I moved from my hometown of Columbia, South Carolina to the “City of Angels”, Los Angeles, California. Don’t let the name fool you...Los Angeles, is a city of glorified sin. Soon I would be wrapped up in the normalcy of a dark culture. This is what young men’s dreams are made of: sexy girls, beaches, partying...life in the fast lane. Freedom from parents, minimal responsibility, living carefree in the moment. But a life of sin is a facade.
One Tuesday afternoon in Los Angeles, I stopped at a traffic light alongside a babe in a Mercedes convertible. I hit on her and she responded with an invitation to follow her to a local bar. She told me she was in the porn industry. Several drinks later we were having unprotected sex at her house. That weekend I ran into her and her porn star friend at a beach bar. We closed down the bar then went back to her house where we abused cocaine. More sex.
Day after day. Night after night. Heartache. Jeopardizing the health of myself and the health of others. This wasn’t me. I was raised with morals. I grew up in the church. But I turned my back on the righteous for a taste of that always enticing lust. And it left me empty, broken, angry, and alone. It separated me from the true beauty that was all around me.
This is all to illustrate the truth that God’s grace knows no bounds. For once I gave my life to Christ, the true adventure began. There is no boundary to where He can take you with your heart being surrendered to Him. I used to concern myself EVERY SINGLE DAY with drugs, alcohol, and promiscuous sex. I was lost beyond lost, and the consequences of living in sin are disastrous. The Bible says “No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God.” And that’s my story. Sin had it’s grip on me for a time but couldn’t overpower my God; for my God sent His Son Jesus Christ to set me free from a life of sin.
The liberation that comes from a walk with The Lord is overwhelming! True freedom is in Christ.
Ever since the day I dropped to my knees and confessed my spirit was so tired of the world and that I needed Jesus, the adventure has been beyond anything I can imagine or comprehend! Total frontier. Absolutely wrecked by the Holy Spirit. Revelations and divine purpose consume my life.
My spirit WAS and IS so very tired of the world. Driven mad by the trappings of Satan.
If Jesus can transform my life, He can most certainly transform yours too!I have always loved tattoos, extreme sports, art, music, culture, and people. The Spiritual Creature clothing line reflects what I'm most passionate about. Our threads are alternative in style but all Jesus induced. We are a mission brand whose vision transcends the clothing line. Our heart is for the broken, lost, dis-in-franchised, outcast, and wanderer. These people are so special and many of them do not know it. They need to know! Connecting with these people is our passion.
Proceeds from sales fund the mission of Freedom Walk, a revival campaign whose chief focus is on the youth of our communities. When you purchase our apparel, you are getting involved with something deeper than the aesthetic.
We invite you to be a part of our Family, where it's "All God All The Time".
This is beautiful. All of it! Thank you for sharing your story. You are truly an inspiration. I just know, in time, others will follow. ❤
