In 2008 at 38 yrs old, I decided to give my life over to God. Before that, my lifestyle was crazy! I was in a rock band and lived my life like a rock star. I tried all of the drugs there was, drank all the beer I could. Jaeger – bombs were my favorite. I slept with over 100’s of women. I was addicted to pornography. I was addicted to sex. I stared at women at the malls, Wal-Mart, anywhere in public. I was like a predator looking for my next victim to devour and have sex with. Every woman that passed by, I undressed her with my eyes. I had a very foul mouth. GD and F bombs were my favorite choice of words. I was very selfish. I did not care about anybody but myself. My favorite saying was “I don’t need God to be a good person.” In February 2008 I got pulled over by the police at 4am and got my 2nd DWI. The next day I started realizing that I have to turn my life around. I knew about Jesus Christ because my mother took me to church when I was little even though I didn’t like church. So I finally decided to give Jesus a chance and asked Him to come into my heart and take over my life.
Suddenly I got a bible and started reading. At first it did not make sense, but eventually it started coming to life. I have never even read a book in my life, but I started getting addicted to reading the Word of God. Sexual Immorality was my first junk in the closet that God told me needed to be cleaned out.
Today, I am married to a beautiful blonde woman and we have 4 wonderful boys. We had our first child together in July 2012. She has two boys with autism. Well, God has removed autism from one of the boys within our 2 yrs of marriage and He is working on the other one now. God instantly took away my foul mouth and He instantly took away my desire to drink. I have not had one sip of alcohol since 2009. It took awhile for God to remove my porn addiction. Over time God has shown me that He created us men as protectors of women NOT predators. When I see women now, I look at them in a totally different way. I thank God for creating beautiful women. I pray for them. I went on Facebook and found a lot of women that I had slept with in the past and apologized to them for using them in a sexual way. I care for people all the time now. I pray for people I don’t even know. I tell people all the time my story and how God has changed my life. Thank you Jesus for changing me into the man You created us to be!
God is good – the devil is bad! (some simple theology for you)The best decision I have ever made in life is believing in Jesus Christ. God has done plenty of miracles, and still is each day, because of my faith in Christ.
God gives you His Spirit and works miracles among you because you heard the message about Jesus and believed it. Galatians 3:5
If you are struggling in your life with addiction or are tired of being selfish and you want to turn your life around. Please consider Jesus Christ. He is the only One who can heal you from ANY disease and set you free from ANY addiction. He is God and He is the only One who can give you eternal life. It is so easy to accept Him. All you have to do is pray. Admit that you need a Savior. Admit that you have done wrong things in your life. Talk to God, tell Him you are sorry and ask Jesus to come into your heart and change your life. It is that easy. If you prayed this, congratulations, you are saved forever and are on your way to freedom in this life here, but be patient it takes time to learn. Now, once you have done that, get a Bible and start reading. You have the Holy Spirit of God in you and He will teach you. Before you read ask God for wisdom and He will give it to you. God bless you!
