When I first came to prison, I turned to religion. A lot of guys do. But then after a few years, most guys fall off. I was no exception.
The past few years I’ve been thinking about incorporating Christian values into my life. I believe the Bible is a blueprint to a righteous life. For years I have tried on my own to achieve this.
I have made great progress. But I have also had many setbacks and failures. There seemed to be some type of a hump I couldn’t get over. One of those humps cost me my EFV’s for 5 years! Another one got me sent to the hole for 3 days.
Deep down I knew I was missing something.
I sent my wife a unique email. I was done just “thinking” about Christian values. It was time to commit and incorporate. Here is my email & my wife’s response:
Two days after committing to God and sending that email, I got some amazing news.
Blessed Magazine wrote me. They said in part, “We have read your blog and was inspired. It would be our honor to feature your story in our publication.”
Upon reading this my body got the chills. Then I broke out in tears of joy. It was almost uncontrollable. I verbally thanked God out loud. I’ve never felt such a powerful feeling.
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
I absolutely love this journey I’m on.
I will continue to serve the Lord.
I am committed.
I will continue down this path.
Thank you for all the love and support.
