One thing remains...is the love of my wife and family and it never failed or gave up or ran out on me when it came close that I was about to do that to them. They continuously prayed for my salvation and that I would stop fighting God.
As a Navy Chief navigating submarines for 21 years, you could say I have been in my Leviathan. On November 6, 2012, beaten and humbled on my knees before God, I finally surrendered my life to the Lord and accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. For the first time in my life, I feel at peace and an inner strength that most "Superheroes" wish they could have.
Last Sunday, I attended church (The Crossing Church, Jacksonville, FL) with my family for the first time in many years and I did not want to hide under my chair or crawl out of my skin due to shame or guilt I felt from fighting God. Since my acceptance of Christ, the love between my wife and I has multiplied tenfold now that we are both walking on the Lord's path. Instead of listening to heavy metal stations, the radio dial stays on K Love or another local Christian down here in the Jacksonville, FL area for inspiration and God's word.
Praise the Lord for His love and dying on the cross for our sins so that we may rejoice in God's presence and sing His praises.
