Looking at the way I was at the end of high school and first part of college, You would have said I was a guy with smooth talk and was never able to walk. I spent about the first 4 years of living on my own as a guy who had no self respect, way too much pride, and didnt care about anyone or anything unless it was RIGHT NOW! Many times I found myself face down passed out because I would struggle daily with alcohol. I never had any sort of shame or worry, except where was I going to get money to do it all again the next night. This life I had was growing darker by the minute. I completely caved in to promiscuity. I couldnt spend a night alone. Night after night, partner after partner, I found immediate pleasure in what I was doing. Not ever knowing I was slowly dying on the inside. This Life was suddenly shocked! As if God Himself stared me down and hit me in the Chest. In one drastic moment I went from the guy who would step to anyone with arrogance and pride, to being sprawled out on the floor of my bedroom in complete disaster and pain from the life that had consumed me. After a few moments of not knowing if the pain would ever subside, I felt the peaceful hand of God come onto me. Right there, that night, On my floor I said to God, "Lord, what have I become?! Please O God please Save me from who I am! I NEVER want to go back to this!" And before I could finish a thought I fell asleep, tears still rolling down. I had given my life to Jesus Christ, and never can and never will, even if I wanted to, be the same. The gift of music was given to me, I discovered it at age 18, and the passion and desire I have to use it to share my story of being saved is HUGE! Nothing in the world can ever separate me from the wonderful love of God, and so I will spend the rest of my life glorifying Him, the name of the one who Saves. It was proven to me that this was my calling when just 2 weeks after learning to play guitar I entered a contest through FOCUS ON THE FAMILY's magazine for boys, "Breakaway", and the song i submitted was chosen to be released nation wide on a compilation cd. It took me by suprise. Sense then, I cant imagine myself doing anything better with my time then trying to reach others for Him.
