In 1992 when I accepted the Lord as my Savior, I realized that I wasn't living life to the fullest. I was living my life for the moment with no real thought of the future and certainly no thought of God's plan for my life. Jesus suffered by being nailed to a cross so that our sins would be forgiven. Our Heavenly Father loved us so much that He gave His only Son to be crucified so that we could enter His heavenly kingdom. Once I heard the truth, I made a decision to live my life for Jesus and glorify God whenever I had the chance. "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in Heaven." (Matthew 5:16).
God has blessed me with great ability as well as a beautiful family that I love more than words can explain. Even when we fall short, God is faithful and always there for us. Because of my relationship with the Lord, I'm learning to be a better husband, father and person. No matter where my career leads me or how much I accomplish in this life, I know that my place in heaven is secure. One day we will all come face to face with the Lord. He has given us the opportunity to spend eternity in the kingdom of heaven. I pray that you turn your life over to Him and build a relationship so that when your day comes to face Him, you will be welcomed with open arms.
Favorite Bible verse: Romans 10:9-10
"If you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."
