“Who knew that a lost soul and a wayward soul would find real love on the dance floor of Club Velvet in downtown Atlanta to the house version of ‘Copa Cabana?’ It is rare, but it happened to us. God used our circumstances to get us out and get us to know Him. It was an extraordinary moment, but God used that moment to save us.
I was involved in drugs and criminal activity at the time. She fell for the bad boy, as many women do. But God took us from there and brought us to where He needed us to be. Growing up in a dysfunctional, divided home, I didn’t know what love was. How could I love this woman the right way? I longed to know God, but I had never read Scripture. So I just started in Genesis and devoted time to read. With that time, God changed my heart, my thoughts, and showed me what love really looked like. Now I completely understand the phrase, ‘For we are His workmanship’ from Ephesians 2:10. I love helping young people now. I don’t want them to make the same mistakes I made. I hope I can shed some light to the God of Love that I know so they can also find out what true love really looks like.”
