Before I met Jesus as my personal Savior I was about as far away from God as anyone could be. All parts of my life were heading in a direction that would have gotten me in a lot of trouble down the road.
July 18, 1979. Greatest day of my life. God opened my eyes to two wonderful truths that day: 1) I wasn’t right and 2) He could make me right. That night I prayed, “God, I don’t know if you want me but I pray that you will take me. Here I am.” Immediately He came into my heart and saved me.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. The change in me was incredible. With my new life came a whole new way of living. I was (and still am) far from perfect but it was obvious God had brought a change about in me. Praise His Work and His wonderful Name!
