God Intervened In My Life

My wife and I were not in good standing and I wanted to kill myself over that. I took my gun and I was going to commit suicide.  Meanwhile my wife and my mother were looking all over South Padre Island for me.  My mother found me behind one of my Island stores in the dark.  It must have been 1 or 2 in the morning.  I was holding a gun to my head, crying like a baby.  She told me to give her the gun.  I didn’t want to kill myself in front of my mother.  She said things would look better in the morning.  I went home with my mother and spent the night at her house.  


The next day I went to help my mother during her lunch break. She was running one of our booths at an indoor flea market.  While she was having lunch, a man came up and began sharing the gospel with me.  I thought, oh no, a “Jesus freak”.  I thought maybe if I listen to him, he’ll buy something from me.  He then gave me a tract, a pamphlet explaining what it takes to get to heaven.  After a while what he told me began to make sense and that night I was born again -- receiving Jesus Christ as my Savior.  My wife saw the change in me and a week later, she was born again.  Our eldest daughter also became born again during that same time period. 


Then the next day I went to work and called all my co-workers to a meeting and shared the whole truth about the gospel. Some received Jesus as their Savior. I thank God for intervening in my life.

“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those

who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
