I won’t often do this as it is not why I made this blog, but as a part of a group I am in through my church I was given the assignment to write down what Jesus has done for me. This is what came out as I reflected and typed. Feel free to respond or ask me a question.
Through my formative years in the midst of my worst sin and destitution I recall longing to be a nicer person. What I put into my body and what came out of my mouth were garbage. I lusted after it and I reaped what was sown. I ended up in a work release program shortly after high school. It was jail. When I was done with that I believe the lord began to show me the destitute life I was living. Though I didn’t know it was him showing me I saw the things I once loved turn ugly and I saw death in those around me. I counted myself among them. Beka (my lovely wife) asked me to go to church with her one day and I thought “well it is supposed to be good, right?” As I came back week after week I realized it was not God or Jesus I had disliked it was my self and the death I invited into my heart. There was nothing wrong with Jesus but there was everything wrong with us. We are the ones that destroy and kill and want for ourselves. Christ said to gain everything lose everything. Serve others forgive be humble and in losing who I was I found what I wanted to be.
