My life truly began 25 years ago when I ran head on into the kingdom of God on the side of a lake in Baton Rouge Louisiana. I'd been running from God most of my life,30 years @ that time. Grief oveeeer my wife running off with another man had driven me to drinking & drugging by this time, & it was wrecking my life. Something happened during that encounter with God. I've never desired booze or drugs again in 25 years. Instead, my life has been dedicated to helping others to find what I've found in my relationship with God
I've lived for tomorrow
all of my life
filling the present
with worry & strife;
Seen of men I bawl & squall.
From my eyes great tears will fall.
All the time I must confess
my life is one big stinking mess.
It seems when life's the darkest
there's not a friend around.
It seems when things get hopeless
there's no comfort to be found.
I saw a light from afar one day;
& since it seemed not far away
I thought I'd travel toward the light.
I soon found out it was too bright.
