I was depressed... I was angry... I drank to forget... Things kept getting worse... Until...

I had the same job for 20 years. The bank I worked for was being sold again. Having a house, a wife, and two children, I felt I was a failure. I was depressed and very angry. I drank to forget, but the drinking just made me angrier and even more depressed. The problems were still there day after day, and the drinking did not make me forget. I took out my anger and frustration on my family. On February 3, 1998, my wife finally had enough. She asked me to leave our home. Shortly thereafter, she filed for a divorce. I had two options at this point. I could move in with one of my drinking buddies, or I would move in with my sister. My sister had one stipulation for me living with her. If I lived with her, I had to go to church with her. I chose to live with my sister. This was when my life began to change. On February 8, 1998, I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my savior. It was as if the monkey (Satan) was finally off my back.

In July 1998, the Lord put a beautiful, wonderful, and loving woman at my side. We were married October 3, 1998.

Jesus has a plan for your life Won’t you accept Him into your life?

I WAS DEPRESSED

 


Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for yours sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you ... please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God; to be at peace with God; to have your sins forgiven; to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity; to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life.
