On this day 13 years ago I was a druggie

I realized this morning when having my quiet time that today is April 20th. It made me think that 12 or 13 years ago I was celebrating today’s date. April 20th = 4/20 or 4:20. ATTN: parents, student workers and others. Do you know what 420 means? Read here if you do not. 12 years ago on this date I was in High School organizing a big camp out/party disguised as a Interact Club Community Clean Up Project.

I read this morning in my quiet time something that made me think about my past as well. “Three things amaze me, no, four things I’ll never understand—… why adolescents act the way they do.” Proverbs 30:18,19 Yesterday Jimmie talked about how if you really accepted Christ into your life then you WILL see a change in your life. (click that link, it is AWESOME) He is too big and too awesome to not influence change in your life. He said that you ought to be able to look back and see how you have changed.

Well today is a reminder of how I have changed. I used to be a druggie and all I focused on was drugs, partying and girls. Now I focus on God, partying (the good/non-destructive kind) and girls, the 3 in my life that God has given me. My wife, Alisha and my two girls, Mia and Tyra.

I don’t know what your struggling with letting go of today or really giving to God, but I do know this. “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7 I promise that if you let Him have control you won’t be disappointed.

Watch this (skip music if you want – but Highway to Hell is awesome) if you want to know more about this or ask me.
