My testimony

My new life in Christ

I just want to take a few minutes and tell a little of what God
has done for me. First of all I had been a drug addict since the
age of 16 years old. I had been involved in the drug scene for
about 13 years. I had been shooting up meth/crank for 10 years
daily, with no days off. At the age of 29 years I was arrested
for drug sales and possesion. But that wasn't a bad thing,
(the arrest/rescue I call it) was the best thing that ever
happened to me. I served 3 1/2 years in prison, (or bible school)
with Jesus. God carried me through prison as I carried His Name.
I had some of the best worship times in prison, there's just some
thing about worshiping God with hundreds of other convicts or
prisoners. Seeing hardened criminals break before the Lord.
Looking back at my life; If anyone doesn't deserve God's love it
is me. But God took me in as the prodigal son and assured me
that His only Son died for me and the many others just like me.
I know there are many people out there who think they are so bad
that God will never love them, I'm here to tell you God love's
each and every one of us just the same. There is no greater love,
than the love God has displayed to us and for us.
He sent His only Son to die for the sins of the world
The devil/satan wants you to believe your not good enough and
you never will be, I'm here to tell you "he's a liar!"
The Bible says that the free GIFT of God is eternal life through
faith in Christ. When some one offers us a gift, we do one of
two things;accept it or reject it. You don't earn it, you don't
deserve it, but because of His love for His creation it is your's
to receive. You know I can truly say this from experience, I have
tried everything under the sun, attempting to fill the emptiness
I carried for so long, and nothing worked, no amount of sex,
drugs, money, popularity, or material things. They were all
temporary happiness. If you want true happiness, that no one,
and nothing can ever take from you, then you need Jesus in your
heart. Let go and let God! I hope and pray this page may touch
someone.

My life today

Today, I do my best to lead a Christ filled life. I have been drug free since April of 1991. God has and is doing some wonderful things in my life. I have been blessed with two wonderful chidren; Bubba (11) and Monique (9). I am very involved
with the music ministry at my church from Leading Worship and playing bass
in the band. I have been attending West McKinley Assembly
of God for about 3 1/2 years. I am currently leading worship
at my church. God has really blessed me at West McKinley, by puting me in the midst of some very wonderful God loving people, and the love doesn't stop there they actually love people too. Sometimes I can't even believe how God is using me(an ex-convict/addict). This is a miracle in it self. All I can say is "Don't ever under esimate the power of our Creator", He is in control and given the
chance He can and will do some wonderful things in our lives.
I really feel God calling me to prison ministry. Hopefully some
day I will be going into the prisons as a messenger for the Lord.

I love this song! This is my prayer!
"Use Me"
If you can use anything Lord, You can use me.
If you can use anything Lord, You can use me.
Take my hands Lord and my feet, touch my heart
Lord speak through me,
If you can use anything Lord, You can use me.

May God bless all who seek Him, and may He continue to use
people like us to reach those who don't, that all may be
blessed and that all who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

In the Mighty Name of Jesus!
