Ok so here is the next part of the tesimony and If your wondering what this has to do with music then just keep folloing the blog.
Well there was a woman that I met and this woman went to church. She went to church and she let her lifestyle speak for itself even as we dated for a short while. She would invite me to church and when I didnt agree to go she would not beat the Bible over my head, but she would invite me every 2 or 3 weeks to church. I would say no not today me and the fellas are going to be watching the football game and drinking beer and she would say well I`ll see you later and I still love you. She did not condemn me she would just show love as Christ would do with anyone. She would share certain things with me about church, what was preached, and even read the bible with me. She would go to church often she was in the choir and went to Bible class she went to various outings and she also stayed for both services.
This woman was and is very dedicated and I have seen that she didn't let anything get in her way from going to the place of worship. One Saturday night she asked me will I go to church with her in the morning and I said yes because I used to go to church when I was younger. My grandmother use to take me all the time so I know what church is about and I know who God is and I believe in God. So I went to church that day and the Pastor is very down to earth and he was speaking to the men and this wasn't even the actual sermon that captivated me but this was him opening the doors of the church to come and receive Jesus. So he talked to the man and he said you men have it huh all you got your money, driving nice cars, a big house and you pulling up your pants like you`re the head of household like you are the man and he said as he looked over the congregation he said real men love Jesus my jaw dropped because I thought I was a real man.
After that I kept going to church but over the course of about 3 weeks I was reading the Bible and learning different things and it stuck with me it convicted me and one day that Saturday night I made it up in my my that when I go to church Sunday that I was going to recommit my life back to Christ and I did just that. Shortly after I rededicated my life back to Christ my old habits and things of that nature started to fall off. I use to be a very heavy drinker, I was actually an alcoholic and I went to the store one day after work. She would ask me you`re going to the store to get something to drink huh and I would say yes I worked hard all week and I want a drink. But yet again she did not fight me on it or condemn me. I went to the store and I asked the store clerk I knew him very well because I was always drinking and I asked him if he had anything new to drink he said no so I went to the back to the cooler to look in see what I want it I was very indecisive i was never indecisive, I stood there for about 15 minutes.
I went back to the store clerk and ask him are you sure you don`t have anything new and he said no so I went back to the cooler and I just said okay I`m just going to go ahead and get me a couple of 40 ounces of beer and I did. I took them home and I started to drink 1 of them and 1 of them tasted a bit nasty as if it was outdated so I said ok well maybe if I start drinking the other 1 that I will get a buzz and then this would not taste so nasty so i drunk it almost Midway and that one tasted the same as the other one. After that I knew I was convicted in my spirit. The Holy spirit made my body reject the alcohol I poured that beer out that day and I knew right then and there that I was delivered the Lord Jesus had took the taste of beer and everything else that I use to do out of my mouth. And I have not had any alcohol since then. I have fully delivered from alcohol and the abuse of any other narcotic or nicotine. Not to mention that the same woman that let her lifestyle speak for itself and shed her light about Jesus Christ the one that stuck by my side is the woman that I`ve been married to since March 1st of 2003.
