Everybody has a story. We each make the choice of whether to tell our story or not. I'm telling my story because it glorifies God. Every human being will do things in their lifetime of which they will be proud. Likewise, every human being will do things in their lifetime of which they will be ashamed. The good news is that God is available for you through it all. In this life, you will experience moments of great joy and also moments where you will feel beaten down. You will become bruised by the consequences of the poor decisions you have made. But if Jesus is your Savior and Lord, He will not allow you to be unduly broken. Don't waste time living in regret over the bad decisions you have made. Rather, quickly learn from them and move on. The time God gives us is precious. If you are reading these words, it means that you've survived. Congratulations I too have survived and I invite you to read about my journey through the ups and downs of life.
