Howdy to all!
Been roaming about this site a bit and just want to say, God Bless You! I don't know if it's proper to use your first name or not, but from what I can gather, the genius behind this site is 24 years old and has quite a bit of wisdom, may I say much more than many twice his age. What hope you have brought us, pulling all these great men of God together. I am just blown away. Finnaly was able to hear Ray Comforts sermon (highly reccomended),Spurgeon, Tozer, Cymbala, ....What a gold mine! Myself, little long in the tooth, but here goes. Raised Catholic, fell away, drugs,sex,R & R, near death to many times,The Hound of Heaven always in hot pursuit, ran and ran and ran, till I finally cracked and truly gave in (?) about 5 years ago.God saved me. And I don't think I will ever fully understand it. Now I hunger and thirst after the Lord, I so long to know Him. Nothing else matters, nothing else can compare.....but so much to learn....lots of soul searching, coming to an end of myself, brokeness, trials, testing......though He slay me, yet will I worship Him...(don't get the wrong idea, I hardly have the problems Job did)One of the most important things I learned early on was that this was hardly some walk in the park, take up your cross and follow me, and He wasn't kidding.The road is narrow, no doubt about it.The only thing in this life that is of any importance whatsoever is Truth.Why are we here? What is it I am suppose to be doing? And where I am going after it's all over? Those are the questions that I have only found answers to in Christ, and some of the details are yet to be disclosed, but I press on. I have been blessed to be able to listen to Christian radio while I work as a General Contractor for these past 5 years.Books,books and more books. I just want to understand all that I need to understand, all that God has revealed of Himself to us. What a treasury of knowledge, great men of God all assembled right before us here on this site, it's a taste of Heaven. God Bless you for your mighty efforts!
