Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the vast army. For the battle is not yours but God's. 2 Chronicles 20:15

Officer Needs Assistance

I wanted to tell you that at first I was a little surprised by the content on your site. But after sitting down and reading through it, it really made me think.

See, I accepted Christ when I was 15. I lived every minute of my life for Him. My life was great and I didn't think it could possibly be any better. Right out of high school I joined the Army. In boot camp I read the Bible every night, went to church every Sunday, and prayed every chance I got. Then, after boot camp, I don't know why, but God suddenly stopped being a part of my life. I was drunk every night, and did other things I had never even considered doing before. This continued throughout 4 years in the military, and into my career in law enforcement. I became a police officer in June of 1994. The heavy drinking that I had taken up in the military had slowed down for the most part, but then flared right back up after a few months of being a police officer. I guess maybe it helped calm me down after being abused by the public I had sworn to protect. At any rate, the drinking continued to get heavier, and I even had several affairs on my wife. Even though I thought I could handle my problems, I continued getting more and more depressed. On the night my wife told me she wanted a divorce, I decided I was going to kill myself. I had the barrel of my gun in my mouth and my finger on the trigger, when God spoke to me. He told me that this wasn't what He wanted for His children.

To make a long story short, although I am still not the Christian I should be, God has (again) turned my life around. My wife has forgiven me, I have stopped drinking, and I don't wake up every day looking for a reason to die. I still have a long way to go in my relationship with Christ, but it gets better every day.

Because for all the times I have turned my back on Him, He has always been there for me.

I just wanted to share this with you.
