I was Born Again more than 35 years ago, after being a terrible person doing terrible things. On my knees my first night in jail, facing 11 to 15 years in a State Penn. I deserved many, many more than that. My life changed, my thought process changed. My pain from my childhood, that turned me into the bad guy, forgotten. Vanished. I had just graduated the year before.
This is harder than I thought it would be. I was arrested for stealing money from my foster mother, a wealthy old woman. I was her slave, literally. Lots and lots of money. Been doing it since I was 12. Her bank never said anything when I'd bring her to the bank to get some money. She said "fill it out for $100.00." I'd add an extra 0, and pocket the rest. Over time as the bank got used to me cashing her checks, they never asked any questions. It didn't take me long to figure out a way to make her sign something. She never said a word, but she knew and didn't care because she was very wealthy, and I was her slave and protection (we lived in a pretty bad area of a very large city). I was very heavy into martial arts. An extremely good fighter. For years. Sometimes a couple thousand dollar withdrawal slips a week.
We moved to a different state to a teeeeny school. From 3000 pupils, to less than 200. I was rich, I was feared by the bullies because the first two weeks were spent beating the s%#t out of the biggest and meanest guys. I never hurt anyone else, just the bad ones.
When I wasn't in school (never went to 7th, 8th, 9th, or half of 10th grade, paid kids to do my schoolwork)where I came from,I was fighting in an alley where skinny little white boys never went. I lived for it.
When I was about to turn 18,I told her I was joining the military and leaving her.
So.....she decided to call the police and tell them.
I just lost EVERYTHING.
They let me make 3 withdrawals for a grand each (turning it into a felony charge.
My first night in jail,on my knees crying, I asked Him to come into my life. All the pain, memories, anger, violence, showing off, all things negative, just Vanished!!!! I literally forgot about the things that my little sister and I went through. Gone!!!
I was saved by the Blood.
Got married. Had a son, had another son.
Life with Christ was wonderful!!! When my oldest was 5,I caught her and my best friend were having an affair for the past year and a half.
Stayed together for our sons.
She left me in 2012 after I had a double stroke because she didn't want to take care of me. She filed for divorce, but had to wait until I was "mentally capable " to stand in front of the judge (the stroke made me forget very easily) .like scrambled eggs in my head. That's that.
Now, as my body pays for the violent person I was, and the many years of hard work I've done. Dr. says that I have the body of a 95 year old. I'm 54, and EVERYTHING hurts.
Years of pain and violence caught up with me. I have 63 characters left, so I'm going to quit for tonight. Gd nyte
