“In May of 76, I was at the brink of death. You can’t describe the emptiness that I experienced.  I was hurten so bad.  I was doing things that I wouldn’t normally do.  I was out of control.  I was trying to satisfy a void.  I felt all alone.  In 8th grade, one of my friends brought a green bible to school.  I always wanted to be close to God.  I bought that bible.  The second semester of my senior year I took a death literature class in English.  This class directed me to suicide.  I thought about how I would do it and decided I was just gonna go ahead and hang myself.  The only reason I’m still here is because my green bible happened to be on the kitchen table.  I was broken, miserable, and desperate for answers.  I started getting restless again.  I was sitting in my bedroom talking to God.  I finally asked Christ to come into my life.  I actually felt I was being poured into.  I physically felt my heart filling up.  I have never experienced that since.  That was my surrender moment.  I was 17.  I’m now 58.  My name is Karl and I surrender."
