My life before coming to Christ was all about me. I was going to do this, and I was going to do that. I thought that my athletic ability was all I needed to get well known and get girls’ attentions.
I was a good kid, the kind of kid you would want your daughters to date, but I had a huge problem. I had a huge hole in my life that was filled with me and the pride that comes with thinking of yourself first.
At Youth Camp before my senior year in high school, I realized that that hole was meant to be filled by Jesus Christ.
On July 18, 1989, I gave me life to Jesus Christ and hope that it would be more about Him than me. He filled that hole like nothing I could have ever filled it with.
That was about 25 years ago, and I cannot put into words the amazing journey that God has taken me on. He brought me through the difficulties in my past, prior to giving my life to Him. He brought me through some difficult times since giving my life to Him.
He has also allowed me to have some of the most amazing times of watching Him move and work in my life and in the lives of those I lead. All of this has continually shown me that life is not about me, but about the Christ in me. So much more to come…
