I accepted Christ on my 21st Birthday the usual way that everyone else did, I went forward, talked to a counselor and bam, I was in. I struggled hard to continue on my new path and felt that at some point God had called me to preach or speak to others, this was in the mid 90's. That call was short lived. In fact, so was my new coming to Christ. I ignored all of it as the company I created started to grow rapidly. At 28 I walked away from our Lord and decided to make life about me all the while struggling in my marriage, my family life and business life. "If I could only make it and get rich, my problems would go away." Yeah that was a daily thought as my life kept spinning out of control.
What do you know, hard work does pay off, my dreams came true. I made it. Now I can fix my life. Big cars, fancy houses, expensive things and the whole social scene was now in order for me, my wife and our family. But wait, I am still unhappy. Dining out, rock concerts, season tickets, expensive cars and toys, big houses. I tried all this cool stuff and I am still unhappy what is wrong? I need more stuff, bigger stuff, that will make me happy. Yeah, live beyond my means. Way beyond my means. Did I mention God was still not in the picture. But I was a Christian I tell you.
Then it happened. I lost the biggest account in my company and it started to spin my life further out of control. I hated my life. After I chased and reached the dream of power, money and a material life, I learned that I was still empty, still hurting and still lost. I turned back to the God I left many years ago and asked, "How"?
"How did I get to this point in my life?"
"How did I get it so wrong?"
"How do I fix it?"
I learned the biggest lesson of life one day. It's not about me. It's not about you. It's all about HIM.
Then I learned that Jesus gave commands. If people consider themselves to belong to Jesus in any sense then how can they then ignore what He said while going to a church? If His commands were to be ignored then why did He give them and why were they written down? If He did not expect us to obey them then why did He ask (and still asks), why do we call Him “Lord” and not obey them? Again, it's all about Him.
To hear the rest of this awesome story of how God changed my life, contact me, I would love to share my story with your church or church group. Of course, I will give God all the credit for I am not worthy.
