My family started in church. My grandparents , aunts and uncles. But while I was still young my father had a falling out with the pastor over buckles on his shoes and this petty disagreement shaped my perception of religion. I visited several churches after but always felt that eye of judgement.
I always felt the pull of the Lord but because of past experience rejected it. The Lord blessed me with a prayer warrior as a son and a Christian wife who prayed for me and never gave up on me. I visited their church a few times. I felt ok but still could not let go of the past . Finally, at a friend’s home the pastor came to me. I met and accepted the Lord as my Savior at the age of 33.
I thank the Lord everyday for never giving up on me. I kicked several habits through Christ that by myself I could not. I had strength to make it through situations that without him I know would have killed me. With the Lord I am happier than I have ever been and I have peace. I love you Lord and I love you too. Please Know that Jesus Christ is the Most Important thing and to know him is to know love.
