Running from God

The Lord has helped me so much in my life. I spent along time running from God and the calling that he has for me. I was afraid to leave the world. I was afraid of losing my life. Jesus said, "he who saves his own life will surly lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will save it." I had to start giving up the life that I knew. I had to stop drinking and hanging out in bars. I had to start reading the Bible and going to church. I always thought that doing these things would be hard. I thought that turning away from the life I had would be a hard thing to do. It really wasn't hard to give up at all. I realized one day that I had been doing things my way and not God's way. Doing things my way had only brought me pain and sorrow. Doing things my way made me a single father with 3 children and no help from either mother, one mother being deceased and the other just not around. I had so much pain and suffering in my life. I couldn't have healthy relationship…
