Looking for God - Heres My Story On Finding the Lord
Hopefully you're reading this article because you're intrigued by the page title: "Looking for God?" This article is dedicated to the Big Guy who makes it possible for all of us to be who we are. God loves each one of us, big, small, short, tall, wherever we are. I encourage you to take a moment to think about the great things God has done in your life.
If you're not yet a believer, I encourage you to accept Christ into your life as the LORD and Savior, and find a path into His loving arms. You see, until a short time ago, I was in the seeking mode, and I knew there had to be more out there than just me. After all, there's no way I could have come up with the 4 seasons, the planets, and all that other stuff that just seems so unbelievable. And growing up, I had always known about God, and Jesus Christ, but hadn't really gotten very close to Him, for one reason or another.
In October of 2004, my wife and I were looking for a place to get some spiritual enrichment that wouldn't be too "out there" but rather a nice warm, welcome place. We searched for the church closest to our house that would be a nice progressive, yet non-threatening, place, and God led us to Church in the City. Our lives were forever changed.
Before this time, I would have never been audacious enough to put something like this on my personal website, for fear that someone would call me and really rip into me because they don't believe what I believe. Now, I don't have that fear, for Proverbs 3:5-7 says: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understand; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil."
Because of my trust in the LORD, I am putting this out there for the world to see, in hopes it will bring one more lost sheep home to the shepherd. So if you're not in Milwaukee, I encourage you to find a church near you to visit, and go home to the LORD who loves you, no matter where you are, or what you've done.
If you'd like to talk more about your faith, I would be happy to share anything I can with you. My phone number is 414.640.7445 and if you don't reach me and you're willing to leave me your number, I'll be happy to call you back and talk more.
