Man Praying

Following the death of my father when I was just 14, a large void formed in my life. I became isolated and depressed and even attempted suicide, but God had other plans for me. In 1965 I met and married Gill. We had many struggles and times of despair in those early years. We moved to Wales in 1967 and despite appearing to ‘have it all’, I started to both drink heavily and abuse prescribed medication. This caused me to become increasingly disillusioned with life. Thankfully, again, God never gave up on me even though I didn’t know Him personally. Work took us back to Surrey in 1975 and despite these changes, my dependency on drugs and alcohol worsened, eventually culminating in several hospital admissions. One night during a mental blackout I attacked Gill and was arrested for it. In despair, I found myself on my knees and prayed to ask God for forgiveness and help. God wonderfully answered my cry and with His help, I managed to stop drinking and being dependent on medication. Gill stood by me throughout this troubled period and things began to steadily improve. Gill had gone to Sunday School as a child and knew the Bible, but didn’t attend church at this time. We returned to Wales in 1994 and Gill had a compelling desire to attend church. She did and became a Christian, there was a peace and acceptance about her that had a profound impact on me. It encouraged me to attend church with her buy cheap levitra online. I too, soon gave my life to Jesus, becoming a Christian, and things got better and better. Through the love and grace of God, Gill and I are now able to testify how great God is. He wants to bless and encourage everyone, it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are, God loves you and is reaching out to you. So please respond to Him today. Talk to Him, He’s waiting for you!
