I was trying to figure out what living life was about. I was searching for my place. I wanted to be liked so I did foolish things to get attention. Excessive usage of alcohol and illegal drugs helped me to be the spotlight in a crowd and get everyone to laugh. I thought I was like everybody else and partying was always on my mind.
My life was a mess! I was sitting in a prison, a convicted felon, due to my driving under the influence and taking a man’s life with my car. At my lowest point, another inmate asked me to go to a church service. Reluctantly I went and I heard about God’s forgiveness and how I could be forgiven. I turned from my sins, and asked Jesus to forgive me! A 1,000 pound load was lifted off my back that night. God was real and NOW I knew HIM for real!
I have never regretted asking Jesus to forgive me. I had to learn that God lives in me, and through my giving up control of my life’s steering wheel, Jesus is driving me to know the real meaning in life,which is that of knowing God personally and having a daily relationship with Him, worshiping and serving Him, and telling others how they can know Him too!
