I used to gang bang, rob, use drugs. I have been shot with a 0.45 caliber gun five times, stabbed 6 times, throat sliced 44 stitches, hit by a car twice, shot 2 times with a 0.22 rifle, hit by a bus. I now have 70 screws, 6 plates in my leg and two 0.45 caliber bullets in my shin. O had overdosed on heroin 3 times, cocaine 1 time and smoked PCP for 10 years.
I was lonely, rejected by family and felt I was the cause of my parents divorce and problems because I have always been rejected by my father. I've been the black sheep of my family.
I began to put my trust in Jesus Christ in 1990 June when I didnít die from the gun shots. I had been shot 5 times by a 0.45 caliber gun. As I grew older I am able to begin to understand that even though I've suffered great tribulations and persecutions, I'm now beginning to trust Jesus more. It's still sometimes hard because I sometimes lean on my own understanding and forget I'm to depend on God.
Since I've trusted Christ, -- I've become more open in my spirit and now I know the world is based on spirit and even though I may suffer tribulations I k now that my savior is guiding my life and the more faith I have, then the bigger the tribulations sometimes. I do know that I am saved and an heir to God's love and forgiveness.
I try my best to live in obedience to Christ and to love and serve the others in my life.
