As a child, I had little understanding of who God was or even that He wanted a relationship with me.
When I began to hear God spoken about and began to study the Bible in Sunday School, I came to realize that the God of the universe wanted me to give my life to Him. I didn’t understand much of what that meant until I understood that Jesus came to live and die in order to lead us to God. I responded to an invitation to trust God with my life.
Jesus not only forgave me, and gave me eternal life with Him, but He has continued to walk with me through life. Through college, marriage, parenthood, and even the death of my wife of 37 and half years, I knew the presence and peace of God. It’s real. He helps me live every day. I find great joy and fulfillment in serving God. It’s not been easy all the time, but I have never felt alone.
