Christopher's Testimony

My testimony of what God can do

Past time and Future time
Life of hard knock may I say
A church goer, A god believer, A Bible reader
A boy scout seeker, Summer camp doer
Camping time, Travel time, With my family time

So many stories of my life
Don't know where to start
A rough childhood of mine
So many choices, So much crime when I was kid
Never listen to my family, Ran away so many times I did
Stayed in school so I did,
A mother who loved me
And forgave me for the mistakes I did

So much fighting to surviving
So much crime I did, Crime never pays
So many lessons I learn, So much time I severed
Two and half years for the time of my crimes
One chance to change my life or 7 Yrs of prison time
At the age of 14 that was

Turned to God who saved me and changed me
No more crime, No more time, So many lessons learned
When God gave me a second chance at life
Stayed in high school until I was done, Not good grades I had
But I graduated anyways, Walked away from my faith
Because I thought I could do it on my own

So many jobs I had, So much money I made
Left home to live on my own
Joined the caravel made money, good money in the games
Made many friends, So many drugs I did
So much traveling, So many miles, So much road trips
Hard work of five years I did But hooked on drugs I was

So many times I tried to quit, So many rehabs I did
Flushed my drugs down toilet, Gave God all my life for good
He saved and healed me from my drug life
He set me free and I let God lead me for eternity
2007 was the year I was healed

Moved to a new city
A new city, a new start, So scared I was,
Knew no one from the start
But homeless may I say, So much fear in me
But I prayed it lead me the way,
Not knowing where to go anyways

Fifty dollars in my pocket, Nowhere to stay it was cold that day
A few pairs of clothes, A tent and a blanket I brought to stay
Found a tree where I stayed for 6 weeks of my stay, in my tent I lay
Without God, I wouldn't have survived
Got a job, Got on my feet, Not homeless no more
But no fear I am able to live anywhere
But God is by my side everywhere
Because God blessed me with a new life from all the drugs I did

So here I am a new person in God, Many new changes
Freedom for life from all the drugs I did
New friends and family I made
So many stories I have told
So many lessons I learned
