I knew about the Bible, and I always felt in my heart that the Bible was a sacred book. I vaguely remembered some of the verses and one of them says, “Ask and it shall be given, knock and the door shall be opened unto you.” It just seemed to speak to me. It said that there was a condition to that verse and I thought, ‘Well, I haven’t been knocking.’ I picked up a Bible and I said, “God, if this is your Word and if you intended this for me, then I’m going to make a point to read it. I’m going...

We were hunters, harvesters; we survived by living off the land. I used to think that that’s the way things were always going to be, that I would grow up to be a man and get married and have my own family, and I would continue that way of life that we enjoyed so much. I never thought or dreamed that one day that life was going to be disrupted.

I said, “Ever since God came into my life and I became a Christian, I’ve learned to forgive. I forgive you.” What was even more astonishing was, he said, “Thank you. I’m thankful to Jesus that you’ve forgiven me.” Ever since that moment I’ve chosen to forgive him, I’ve never had to deal with that bitterness and that resentment and that hatred which really would only weigh heavy on me. I left it to God.

You got to be careful, too, who you hang out with and places you go.” I had to learn to separate myself from a lot of the places I went, the people I hung out with, because even that in itself can really weigh on your spirit."

After doing cocaine, I felt this pain in my chest and my heart pounding and I started freaking out, panicking, and all I could think was, “I don’t want to die and go to Hell.” I remember just crying out to God, “God, please, I don’t want to die, please, get me through this night.” The next day I was alive. I woke up, and it was just on my conscience heavy; “You prayed to God and you asked God, ‘get me through the night’ and He did. What are you going to do?”
