I'm gonna' cut straight 2 tha important part of my testimony...I'm saved by HIS grace. It took me 31 years, and constant prayers(on my behalf)from my family and church...before I finally accepted Christ. I am livin', breathin' proof of tha power of prayer. Why me? Why allow a heartless, adulterous, murderous, selfish, thievin', blasphemous, sinner...in HIS HOLY presence? Because JESUS covered HIMSELF in my dirty rotten sin on tha cross, and died in my place and because HE rose from HIS grave...so that I am forgiven for all tha crimez I've committed towardz my FATHER and KING...GOD. I thought at timez I was 2 far gone 2 be forgiven for my countless sinz, but all GOD askz of us is 2 come as we are. Ask for forgiveness of your sinz, and believe JESUS was(is)GOD's perfect substitute for the penalty of your sinz. Tha penalty for sin, even 1 is death. It took me 31 yearz 2 get this concept. After a life of purposeful sinnin', tha HOLY SPIRIT took down my last wall in my heart on January 13 2008. GOD gave me a wonderful wife, which HE used 2 soften my heart over tha course of almost 8 yearz. I used 2 joke 'bout how she made me soft, but tha HOLY SPIRIT used her for that task. She has given me 3 children, and been a mother for all 4 of my children. Even farther back, GOD gave me a Christian mother and father at tha age of 10 or 11. Even back then when mom married my dad(Randy), tha HOLY SPIRIT was layin' HIS foundation in my heart. GOD sent my dad 2 fix our broken home. GOD has also given me 2 wonderful grandparentz who prayed and pray tirelessly for me. HE gave me in-lawz(Leo and Patty) who are alwayz willin' 2 help my family, without ever expectin' 2 be repaid. And HE used Gabe my friend and my brother 2 preach tha sermon that Sunday in January that finally got my attention. It wasn't even a salvation message bein' spoken that mornin', but tha HOLY SPIRIT still used it. I'm not sayin' my life is perfect because I accepted CHRIST, I'm still a sinner...but now I'm forgiven...thatz tha difference. HE is why I am different now! Before all I wanted was material thingz from this world 2 fill my emptiness, but now thru GOD, CHRIST, and tha HOLY SPIRIT...my heart is full. Romans 3:23 FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. Romans 5:8 BUT GOD DEMONSTRATES HIS OWN LOVE TOWARD US, IN THAT WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS, CHRIST DIED FOR US.
