Over the past week it was heavy on my heart to share my Joy FM story, but due to some issues relating to my story I did not feel that I could. But God did not let it go. So hear it is. For 40 years I have believed that I was a Christian. I believed that Jesus is the son of God and that He died for man's sins and washed them away with his sacrifice. However, I never felt that I was worthy and that I was a mistake. Over the years no matter what I did I never felt that I was worthy and that I was flawed and an outcast. Then back in January this was magnified ten times when my wife of 14 years filed for a divorce and sighted all of the things I did wrong. With believing that I was a mistake, I believed what she was saying. I believed that I failed her, my son, my family, my fiends, and God. I sought out support through my church and through counselors, but no matter how many times and ways I heard that I was worthy and that I was not a mistake I could not believe it deep down. How could Jesus die for my sins when He knew the things that I have done, and if I was as bad as my wife was telling me and her lawyer. Needless to say I was in a hole and it was getting deeper. During this time I was facing problems at my job, discovered that I was $60,000 in debt (which my wife said was my fault), was faced with loosing the house, and had my wife trying to have me declared as an unfit parent of my son. Then when my wife moved out and took my son with her, I hit bottom and could not see anyway out. I felt like I was such a mistake and failed God and everyone in this life that I took a rope, tied a noose and put it around my neck. As I was climbing the ladder, I heard a voice say stop and that it would get better. I stopped and took the noose off and put it to the side. Things did not get better. I had to face accusations of poor performance through the HR department at work and had to involve an advocate. My bank account was dwindling down to nothing with having to retain a lawyer, and I had to start going through things at the house and packing them in fear of having to move out quickly. Needless to say I revisited that noose at least four more times. Each time I would either hear a voice telling me things would get better, or I was shown a visual image of my son's face. But my feelings of being a mistake to God and those in my life were still there and getting stronger each day. Then one day driving home from work, I was listening to the Joy FM as I usually do when a song came on by Dara Maclean. It was a song that I never heard before, Wanted. As I listened and really heard the words tears filled my eyes and I had to pull over. They were not tears of sadness, but tears of relief. As I listen to each word and lyric the many years of guilt, feelings of failure, and feeling that I was a mistake and unworthy of Jesus' sacrifice flowed out with each tear. At the end of the song a since of rest and hope entered my heart and I felt released. A week later I truly accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior with my words, heart, mind, and soul; and was baptized. I wish I could say my situation has gotten better, but I can say my outlook and spiritual well-being have. I know and believe that God has a plan for me and I just need to follow the path He has laid out for me. Praise The Lord for his grace, mercy and salvation he gave me.

Stay faithful. I know all of you, including myself, have many problems that the devil throws our way. Our God wants his people happy! Believe in Him! He wants us to submit to Him fully! With the faith of a mustard seed we can move mountains! So let's have enough faith for our loved ones and/or ourselves to be healed! . . . Please pray for my brother. He's gotten 4 DUI's. He's currently in jail and I hope The Lord touches his heart. I also ask to pray for my mom. She is in the middle of a divorce and facing financial issues. The devil is really trying is right now and my faith. But I know who my God is and He's gonna bring me and all of you out of your trial!

My son has a meeting September 30. This meeting could make his way to the career he has worked for his entire life. Pray that the person he is meeting with has an open heart to want to be a part of his career and supplies what he needs to fund his next step.
