About chanticleer1977
Biography:
In 2000, I was a bold atheist. I had come to the point in my life that I did not believe there was a God who created the universe or who cared what happened to me. This was the lowest point of my life. Since then, God has never let go of me. I wanted no part of Him at that time. I had lost everything: my job, my marriage, my children, my self-respect, but He loved me enough to hang on to me and not let me fall into the hopelessness of my unbelief. At this point I realized how ridiculous was my belief that everything just happened by chance. Everything in this world is perfect. That did not happen by accident.God also put several people in my life to bring me closer to Him. First, He made a way for me to marry the love of my life, even though it seemed impossible at the time. Faye, my wife, encouraged me to help her find a church to attend. It took several months until we settled on a church close to our home. This church had excitement, spirituality, and truth. The pastor gave the Word of God as truth without shame. This was where my true relationship with Jesus began.In the process of joining the church, an associate pastor revealed to me that God made me for a particular purpose and He wanted me to fulfill it. I was convicted to be baptized again since I was convinced that I did not know Jesus before this time. There was no bright light or voice from above. I just knew that the time was right. In the year after that experience, I hung on to several hang-ups and habits that I knew were keeping me from serving God as I should. Approximately six months later I totally surrendered all I had to God. That was the beginning of a long journey for me.Since that time, I have struggled with my pride and selfishness. I have turned these things over to God for Him to deal with, but the consequences of my past actions still come back to haunt me. I realize I cannot do it alone. He must help me with it. I know that today my identity does not depend on the things I have done in the past or that I still may do. My identity lies in my relationship with Jesus, my Lord. He is the only way to God. May you find Him.
