True Confessions of an Associate Pastor : Taken

In the last few months I’ve shared my story of God’s work in my life through my years of depression in High School with more and more people.  For those of you that don’t know it reached a tipping point when I reached the point of calling it quits on life.  I picked the day, the method and the moment.

I often tell people that God performed a miracle in my life that day and every waking moment I’ve seen since that time is something I never thought or imagined.  Never thought I’d graduate high school, get into and graduate college, find a job, find an amazing girl, marriage, kids, ministry, live in the 804, meet some amazing people in T.O, NY, MI, TX and the list goes on and on … never thought … never dreamed … never imagined.  I couldn’t get past a cold winter day in 1994.

When I had given up on my life and almost took it, God stepped in and took it for me.

I’ve always admired certain Bible people.  Enoch was one of them.  I’ve told people that I want to be like him.  I want to walk so close to God that He just takes me … I feel that He’s doing that in me now.

“Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.” – genesis 5:24

Some days are home runs, some days are full of foul balls, other days are strike outs … but I’ve just got one question for the enemy … how ya like me now?
