About me... well for starters I am a very passionate person, everything I do I put my heart into. I'm honest, loyal, kind, fun, witty, smart, and strong willed. I love being a father and a family man. I love children...I'm blessed with a 16 year old son ÃÃÂ¢JacobÃÃÂ¢ and 12 nieces and nephews and I spend any chance I can get with them.
Really the most important thing to me is Christ Jesus! I could go on about this and indeed I will if you ask, but there is just a few things I want to tell you. You need a relationship with God!! How else can you live life free from the ways of this world? No... I don't mean pews, gowns, and crowns and all the off the wall religious stuff... I mean, living the life God intended... with peace, love, faithfulness, joy, integrity, stability etc.! Look its easy, God is the Father and loves us! He knew all the harm that worldly things and thoughts could do to us! Take a good look at the "Ten Commandments"... live life like that and we don't have to worry about all the things we let destroy our lives today! No where in the Word of God (Bible) does it say that He didn't want us to ENJOY life to its fullest!! I want to share with you some scripture that reveals GodÃÃÂ¢s love for us...
"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirableÃÃÂ¢if anything is excellent or praiseworthyÃÃÂ¢think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in meÃÃÂ¢put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you."
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you," declares the LORD, "and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile."
These verses were read to me by my sister Angelita the day I gave my heart to the Lord... I was in a dark place that day; my heart was heavy and burdened. Peace in my heart would be the only way out. I knew what had to be done now! God did something that day that will forever change my life.
