God's Salvation

"For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith —and this is not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God— 9 not by works,
so that no one can boast."

Ephesians 2:8-9

Junior high is when I started rebelling and getting in trouble, suspension after suspension...and after school detention after detention. I then got into the wrong crowd and in doing so my life became engulfed with chaos and storms.

I got into a fight in the 7th grade; the two people that I had called out wanted to have a huge fight, with the people I was associated with, and the people they were associated with. I told none of my friends of it because I thought it was silly..well they all showed up where my friends and I were supposed to meet, with various weapons. Shortly after the police arrived busting people with guns and various weapons. Not long after that my mother received various life threatening calls as to what these people were to do to us for revenge.

We moved.

I got in more trouble fighting and then was suspended for half of a year due to being caught with drugs in school. We moved from there and I went through high school at a different school. It was there after graduation that my life took a dramatic turn for the worse.

I began drinking alcohol and doing drugs. So much so, that in a 2 month span I lost 50 pounds from cocaine. Needless to say, shortly after my mother learned of my addiction. I felt as if I had no reason to live any longer. I went home and wrote a letter to my family telling them that I loved them and I could no longer take the pain that this life brings. I took a gun and went to a river bank in Texas.

It was there on a hot sunny day that I would take my last breath. On that clear sunny day, with blue skies, I knelt down against a tree and lifted the gun up. As I went to pull the trigger the beautiful clear sky cracked with thunder! It was there that I knew there was a living true God. I dropped the gun instantly and there began my recovery from the drugs and alcohol through my new found Saviour Jesus Christ.

I then got into the Word, which is the Bible, and found the comfort I had always searched for, the peace...the answer. You see I was addicted to drugs, now my addiction is in the King of kings (Jesus Christ). I once was consumed in alcohol, and now I am completely consumed in the Lord of lords.

It took me almost losing my life to find it and now that I have Him in my life it will never be the same. Thank you my BEAUTIFUL SAVIOR, MY KING, MY LORD, MY ROCK, MY HEALER, MY REDEEMER, MY FORTRESS, MY JOY, AND MY ALL IN ALL FOREVERMORE...JESUS CHRIST MY LORD AND SAVIOR.

Furious Pursuit: Why God Will Never Let You Go

What if you could believe that God not only chases you, but has yet to leave your side for a second, has yet to go a minute without courting you, whispering in your heart, I’m right here? What if you could believe that God is never distant, never out of reach, never indifferent to what’s going on in your life? Would that make a difference in your relationship with him?

And what if you could go a step further and believe that God’s pursuit has nothing to do with your level of faithfulness? He is just as near, and just as vigilant in his pursuit, regardless of your dedication to the spiritual disciplines, and in spite of your struggle with sin.



Desperate Hope: When Faith in God Overcame My Despair

As her younger brother battled for life in the ICU, musician Candi Pearson-Shelton and her family sat waiting and praying, struggling to hang on to hope. Rick Pearson died anyway, at age 23. But in those tense ICU days and the painful months and years that followed Rick’s death, the family somehow settled on a mission: to seek out the glory of God shining through the sorrow and to reflect that glory, even if it meant seeing their plans come to ruin. In this fiercely honest yet faithful book, Candi shares the “gentle whispers and hard-learned faith lessons” that came to them along their journey, offering a song of praise to One who, in the midst of tragedy, pain, and confusion, revealed not only His glory, but also beauty, unexpected graces, a hope more grounded in faith, and a shifted perspective that changed nothing…but somehow made all the difference..!"
