Pop star Jordin Sparks revealed the dramatic moment that has reignited her Christian faith, sharing the details with tens of thousands of people assembled for Harvest America at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, on Sunday night.
Sparks explained that her life was a bit chaotic last year when her aunt and uncle invited her to attend an Easter morning church service in Los Angeles, where she now lives. At the time, she had no idea that accepting their gesture would be transformational.
“There was a lot of crazy chaos going on in my life and I was out partying and I just was hurting and I was trying to figure out what was going on,” she said. “So, I finally go, I get there … when I tell you Jesus met me there last Easter and he reawakened me.”
Sparks said that God “smacked” her back into gear, as she felt like Jesus was saying, “Get it together, Jordin.”
While she didn’t share the finer details of her struggles, Sparks said that, up to that point, she simply wasn’t seeking God.
“I wasn’t seeking that relationship,” the singer explained, adding that she changed her ways that very day and has been living for God ever since. “Being able to know this Jesus that walks beside you every, single day has been the most amazing year of my life.”
Sparks went on to sing popular hymn “My Redeemer Lives,” but reminded those in the audience of an important detail beforehand: “It’s never too late to come home … [God] loves you no matter what.”

As Faithwire previously reported, 38,000 Christians flocked to the University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday for Harvest America, an event aimed at spreading the gospel and positively impacting a “nation desperately in need of hope.”
In recent years, Sparks has made it no secret that she’s a Christian. She starred in the reboot of the “Left Behind” film, a movie based on prophetic novels about the biblical end times.
SO MUCH WISDOM! PLEASE READ THIS! 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Take hold of my instructions; don't let them go. Guard them, for they are the key to life. My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to my words. Don't lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body. Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.' Proverbs 3:5&6, 4:13 & 20-23 . . I remember seeing my parents & grandparents Bibles marked up like this when I was younger. I've only had this Bible for a little less than a year & I look at the pages of mine now & I understand. These are so much more than words. It's amazingly overwhelming and I cannot fully explain it. Everyone takes their own unique journey. It's filled with experiences that are joyous, difficult, easy and painful. But somewhere along the line, after many experiences, they finally 'wake up.' I love the expression: "When a man's Bible is falling a part, the man isn't." I'm awake Lord. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Be encouraged today. Grab that Bible off the table & dive in! Please share! ❤️ (This Is called The Wayfinding Bible. ITS AMAZING. I've had multiple Bibles since I was young but this one is just fantastic!) #dailybread #proverbs
She also took to Instagram back in December to share a photo of her Bible and implore fans to read Proverbs. The most notable part of her post, though, was the photo she shared of her Bible — a picture that showed highlighted and underlined verses as well as hearts and stars on its pages, indicating which parts of scripture clearly resonated with her.
