Though nurtured in a loving Christian home by Godly parents, I rejected their teaching and sought the “good things” in life. This included an unbelieving wife and a lifestyle that had no place for God, church, or morals. Education, a great job, and fast living was my religion. Then God got my attention.
One Sunday morning I agreed to honor my mother by attending a Homecoming service to see old friends from the past. I had not been to church for 15 years. God used the preacher’s mouth to tell me HE loved me and that He would change my life if I would just commit my life to Him. Knowing I could spend Eternity with Him in heaven or without Him in hell made my mind and heart race with both fear and excitement. I could not reject Him any longer and at age 33 I accepted Christ.
All was NOT rosy. Satan attacked immediately. Divorce followed soon but God demonstrated He was on the throne. After failed efforts at reconciliation, God showed He still loved and cared for me. God used me in the Singles ministry and music ministry and eventually led me to a wonderful, Christian mate that has now been my wife for 22 years. We have happily served together in our church, community and in life with Christ as our guide, our strength, our refuge. His grace is Amazing. His forgiveness is complete.
