As I go out each day in my walk with my Lord, I pray that he will guard and protect me and keep my steps straight and firm in the ways that will make him proud to call me his son.

I can now look back in my life to the time when God changed my life. In those four years I could write many pages on the things God has done in my life. Oh my, there were powerful temptations, overwhelming crisis and many things that the devil did to try and shake my new faith in God.

Today I have a great testimony for my Lord and how he pulled me through those days and though I know that there will be more trying times to go through, I know that my God will be there to pull me through. I now can call my life a journey for me and my Lord because each step of the way my Lord has had his hands on me.

Early in my life Satan tried to destroy me and he was doing a real good job of it, but even though I was unworthy, Jesus came into my life and through him I am a new man, hungry for everything that God has for me. As I continue to walk with my Lord, I pray for him to teach me every day something new that will make my testimony more powerful for him and my everyday walk filled with praises for saving me from the hell I was living in four years ago.

From an old ex-con, but now a 4-year-old child of God.
