God is speaking!

(Illinois)

I grew up in a Christian Home. At the age of 10 years old I was saved and baptized. I became involved in the youth group and was involved until my first year of College. In College I was rebellious, disobedient, and I landed myself in some trouble. My life became involved with drugs, drinking, and one night stands. This continued for many years.

My Father, who is deceased now, said that I would become a Pastor one day. I laughed and thought whatever. I didn't want anything to do with church. I fell on some really hard times. Losing the love of my life, losing my family, losing my job. I felt I was at my worse until I returned to my home church. It was a small United Methodist Church. The sermon that morning really touched me. I came home and repented of my sins. I became involved with ministry, I read the word of God, and I prayed. I am so thankful for God's Grace. The grace that could even save a wretched sinner like myself.

I now am a pastor. I'm thankful for the experience I went through to get me to this point. I know if had not been for some rough times, how could I pastor anyone? If you're going through rough changes, please be still and listen to God's voice! He is always speaking. He can and will speak through your circumstances. Be the man or woman of God that he called you to be!

If I had not listened to God speaking I would probably be in a Correctional Facility or a Devils Hell! Listen to his voice! Pray without ceasing!

Love in Christ to all!
