I take no glory in writing this book for it is written for people in my life. I just put it in the words on paper. This book has many emotions you will face. There is suffering, revelations, visions, and power in the words that are spoken..
I was down and out many years ago and I asked God, “What can a sinner like me offer you?”, and he said with a low powerful voice, “Give your life away.” That is when I started writing this book. You are my friends if you read this book. I will relate to you as my friends. Jesus—The Way, the Truth, the Life—gives me hope for today. This book will stand out with the encouragement to change if you need to. It is a book with short stories that are true. This book is true. Nothing in this book will lead you on the wrong path. It is meant for change. For the better, so that you may experience a happy normal life.
This book will keep you interested. I’m confident when you read this book, The Apathetical Man, your eyes will be opened to new visions and revelations in your life. I can share this book with you. The book will nourish your inner man and lead to many questions. This book speaks to you in an intimate style that brings us closer to the meaning of living a normal life.
Living a normal life is living a sober and diligent life before man and God. It’s very intimate. Like I’ve mentioned, I see you as friends when you read this book. Any person reading this book becomes a friend and you will see this and experience this as I will not be preaching from a pulpit but from the very words written in this book.
I told this counselor this, “I want to leave from the care of this rehab center, because you or no one else here can help me. I’ve been through the program many times, but I have always ended up right back in this same position. It’s always the same blob, blob, blob. You just don’t understand what I’m going through!” This counselor looked at me and knew something was greatly burdensome on me and he gently closed the door and said this to me, “I know your history, but please don’t give up. Please tell me what is wrong, so that I can understand.” As soon as this man said this to me, I began to discern this man and knew he honestly wanted to help me. Not only did I discern the truth of this man’s intent, I also knew I didn’t even understand the word ‘understand’, no kidding. For the very first time in my life that I can remember those words from the mouth of that man touched me where only God himself had ever touched. I felt an awesome power of love and compassion in my heart and my life immediately began to change.
Today I know with confidence this; It isn’t what you know in this life, it is what you do with what you know. The Power that Jesus Christ proclaimed that he had when he said this, “Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.” The reason of the confidence and the power Jesus Christ had was that of, no other than, the Power of Understanding of God’s Will for him. Jesus Christ has the complete package of the Understanding of God’s Will for himself and mankind and that my friend is the Power of God the Father.
Disobedience has been my greatest downfalls of my life and also my greatest lessons. My parents disciplined me until they had no choice, but to get me help on the matter. They knew if I didn’t get help, I would be killed or worse. So, my parents did get me help and I was admitted to a hospital for almost 2 years at the age of 16. Not only did my parents turn me over to the care of a professional, but they also turn me over to God and left me at his feet. It’s not that my parents didn’t love me or care for me, but it was the fact that my parents did love me greatly and didn’t want to lose me. I was very rebellious during my young years and was totally out of control sometimes. Somewhat like a wild animal that would get loose from the zoo. The only way to get to the wild animal is to shoot it with a sleeping dart and cage him up. But, I did calm down after the rod of God was on my behind for many years and I began to submit myself to his care. During this time, I would ask this question, “God, why did it take so long for you to tell me just to submit myself to you. I would had rather you told me that, than you disciplining me.”
