VV Baptism Testimonies

Clinton Gwaltney

I was going nowhere and I had a heavy heart and an emptiness that I knew only He could take away.  I was in a dark place and my marriage was failing.  I was angry and bitter and was failing as a father.  I was always depressed and would take it out on my family. I was at the Men’s BBQ at HDC and Chad Williams, a former navy seal, was the guest speaker.  After he told of his challenges and adversity he went through and Jesus was there to pull him through, I knew at the moment what I needed to do.  If Jesus could do all that for him, I knew that he could square me away too.  I knew right then that I needed to rededicate my life to Christ and to follow him as well as seek His will for my life.  My wife and kids needed me to change for the better.  That was 3 years ago.  My marriage is now strong full of love, my family is strong and my kids are being raised in a happy home.  My depression has faded away and I am happy and excited for life and its challenges. I encourage anyone even thinking about giving your life to the Lord to take that step,  you won’t regret it.
