Hello again. If you didn’t know all ready my name is Kent and I will be blogging about my life and what I have learned from it so far. There is allot to tell and some of it is not so good. Again, I have to thank God and also my mother, with out them I would not be alive today. There have been times in my life that the pain was so bad that I wish I was dead. Some of the pain was not all my fault and some was. I am here today to testify that God is real and through his son, Jesus Christ I am saved.
Now for the not so good things in my life. The “old” me would run and hide from the truth and not want anyone to know. The new me says I don’t care what you think about me, God loves me and I put all my trust in Him. I have been to the school of hard knocks and the biggest mistake I made in my life was committing first degree theft. Yes that’s right, I’m a convect. In my 42 years I never dreamed I would be arrested let alone for first degree theft. I only spent one day in jail and after pleading guilty I got a 4 years probation.
That was just the start of many bad things that happened to me over the next 2 years. My name was all over the news and I lost my job too because of being arrested. My wife filed for divorce and I moved out of the home we owned. The only work I could get was delivering newspapers and then late one cold night in January I slipped on some ice and broke my ankle. I had to under go two different surgeries to have the ankle fixed. A few weeks after breaking my ankle my mother had a real bad stroke and we were not sure if she would make it.
Today I have a great job I love and work very hard at. I drive a garbage/recycle truck and work about 50 hours or more each week. My ankle is better but not 100%, and don’t think it will ever be 100% I believed in God but didn’t trust in God. Now I do and love God with all my heart and I am nothing without him.
More to come…
