“Unless the LORD had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.”
This verse greatly resonates with me, regarding my conversion from a lifestyle of sin and death to my faith in Christ:
I was a sinner, caught deep in a pit of sin, that was killing me on the inside and on the outside as well. At the lowest point of my life, I lacked all will to live and felt dead on the inside. I did not know who I was, or was born to be. When Christ intervened, way back in the summer of 1994, he put me on the path to righteousness, and gave me back my life again. I found the desire to live, and the calling of my life in music.
Today, as I reflect over my #1 status in the Christian/Gospel music charts in Canada, and look back over the last 20 years since my conversion, I am amazed by how faithful God has been. I am thankful that he took this life that I had wasted on sin and replaced it with a life of hope, joy and peace. Through the desert and the storms of life, his love has remained the constant that abides with me.
