I would like to take a few minutes out of your time to share with you a brief summary of how my life changed. To tell this story correctly, I must start from the beginning. Many of you know me and for whom that donâ€™t , I would like to introduce myself, my name is John Hall, I was person just like you, getting up everyday doing my daily routine, living pay check by pay check, and trying to satisfy the ones I love. All these things are hard living in a world that shows Betrayal, Backstabbing, Personal Gain and etcâ€¦
I was living my life worrying of what tomorrow or the next day will bring along my way. My life was happy on the outside but in the inside I was burning up with sense of emptiness. Itâ€™s like when you play a puzzle game , and you get down to the very last piece then you realize you canâ€™t find it, that feeling was how I was living on the inside. I was living my life with that one piece missing and it was eating me alive every single day, but nobody could tell it.
For the days that went by I tried to substitute the emptiness with playing video games, partying, and going out with women, but that only satisfied the void for a brief period of time. Then I soon realized what I was doing was only making the situation worst. There was this little voice in the back of my head that was saying over and over â€œcall upon the name of the Lord! . â€œ Then one day after a difficult day of agony and pain, I finally said â€œLord help me!?
Then that next day I figured out that my Brother -In- Law accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into his heart, and when I was setting there hearing him confess everything that he has done in his life in front of all these people. Then all of a sudden I can feel the Holy Sprit convicting my heart and I got down on my knees and I started praying and confessing to the Lord everything I have done in my life and I am lost with out Him and I want Him in my life and I would like to live the best as I can by representing The Heavenly Father.
After a extensive conversation with the Lord, I open my eyes, I felt like a new person, the music I listened to I didnâ€™t listen to anymore, the games I played I didnâ€™t play anymore, and so on. I realized that all those long hours playing video games, that I could have spent the time with the people I love like God, Family, and Friends. God is number one in my life Today, Tomorrow, and Forever.
I know the long road a head is not going to be easy but at least I will have the Heavenly Father and Jesus with me to talk me through it. The Heavenly Father and Jesus are my best of friends, I talk to Them about almost everything. I tell Jesus secrets because I can trust that He will not tell nobody. I stop putting my trust in man and pointed it to God, and Jesus.
In this world I realized that there are two different categories of people. One category of people believes on Luck, they base everything on luck like O thatâ€™s just luck or your lucky. The other category of people believes that everything happens for a reason. Everything happens according to Gods Plans.
In this world I noticed that people are scared of each other or they are walking around like they can take on anybody. I used to be like that, I used to walk around like I could take anybody on, or some cases I was scared or feared of them. Then when I found the Lord , and I realized that I should not fear of what man can do to me , but Only Fear God.
Ever Since I accepted Jesus into my life everything feels better I fell more relaxed knowing that God is watching over me Today, Tomorrow, and Forever. That emptiness that I felt is now filled up with the Holy Sprit and I long to strive for God.
