Spiritual Growth Boys to Men!!
When I was younger I can remember I wanted to be like my brother and other older guys in my neighborhood. I found myself a really good kid with a decent childhood, but I wanted another live that I show others around me living. So I got involved with selling drugs, smoking weed, drinking and carring guns. I still was a good person at heart, but as I got deeper into that lifestyle my heart changed. I lost really good opportunities and relationships because I wanted to be something I never was suppose to be, but as I read these verses I understand that God allowed me to make certin decisions of my past so they can be revealed to me today and so I can see the lesson in them. I wasn't a real loving person in the past and my lifestyle was my excuse. I found myself carrying guns everywhere I went because it was always that thought of being robbed because of the amounts of money I would have on me from the drugs I sold to people not carring about what it would affect them, but rather how it affected my pockets. God spoke to me at times in my past and today he has my full attention. He has gotten me through situations that I uunderstand today it could only be him that got me through them. Today I allow God to direct my path and use his word to renew my heart and mind! I'm truly blessed that God spared my life based on some things i've done in my past. In the future I plan on continuing to keep God first, maintaining my membership with the prison ministry giving my testimony to others so they can see how god Good is and doing everything in Love showing others the love God gave me. Even today I'm not sure what my true calling is yet, but I'm sure as I continue to follow God he will allow my talents to be used where needed in the body of christ!
