A man convicted of murder encounters Jesus in prison that began a journey he never knew could happen in his life.
A Broken Home
Billy grew up in a broken home. His parents divorced when he was still 6-years-old. At a very young age, the teen ran away from home to find his mom. But when he found her, they only ended up fighting.
Years went by, Billy got married and had two daughters. Then one day, his wife cheated, and they separated. What’s worse was when he found out that his ex-wife’s lover molested his 5-year-old daughter. Both his ex-wife and her lover then went to jail. But Billy was still gritting for revenge on the man for what he did to his daughter.
Revenge And Murder
Billy didn’t know how to handle the pain and bitterness raging inside him. As a result, he drowned himself with drinking alcohol and using drugs to forget all of his problems. Then when the raging dad heard the news that the man had gotten out of jail, Billy started looking for him. He was out of his mind at that time. The vengeful Billy went up to the guy’s condominium and murdered him and his uncle, who was there at the scene.
A year later, authorities arrested Billy for murdering two men. By this time, he lost custody of his children to a Christian family. He went to prison and continued his life of rebellion, anger, bitterness, and resentment. Once inside the jail, he got involved in a gang riot that pointed him responsible for a dying prisoner taken at the hospital. He was told that if the prisoner dies, he would be sentenced to death or life imprisonment. That’s when God began to rewind the tapes of everything in his life.
Crying Out To God
In his cell, Billy dropped to his knees and cried out to the God he didn’t know.
“God, I do not know You,” he told God while in tears. “But I will get the Bible and I will get to know You and I’ll serve You for the rest of my life. Even if You desire for me to serve You from the confines of this penal institution, I’ll serve You. I just got one request only, let that man live.”
Then what happened next began a journey that Billy never knew could happen in his life. Watch the entire story!
