On December 23rd 2003

I had my life, my love, my sanity, my heart, my dreams, my best friend, my lover, my husband, and so much more ...

At 5:50pm it was ripped away from me. One man had the power to choose whether my life would remain the same or if I would live a life of grief, sorrow, anger, hurt, pain, and loneliness. Why did this one man have this power? Who gave it to him? Why did he think it was ok to drink so much liquor and get behind the wheel of a car ? He didn't even have insurance or a driver’s license. He had been in jail many times for his drinking but he never learned anything from it . You would think a 43 year old would know better, Does he realize what he has done to me and my family ? He tore our lives apart. Will we ever have a normal day again? We had so many things planned we were suppose to grow old together. I was not suppose to bury the love of my life he was only 34. Tim was the type to always help others and on 12-23-03 he did his last act of kindness when he stepped out of his truck to help a family change their flat tire.

Why Me?? !! Tim's Testimony

Every day I hear people with problems.  Talking about how some one let them down.  More often than not they will complain about things that do not have any thing to do with them. I ask them, who do you put your faith in? Then there are the ones who do just enough to get by and don’t understand why they don’t have every thing that other people have.  A lot of people seam to have the why me attitude.  The more they sit there the more they wonder why me.  I talk to people all the time that ask how I do it.  They want to know how I am so happy.  Or how I can afford to have boats, home and cars.  They see the things I build.  They see how easy life is for me.  They look at the things I do then ask, ”Why can’t I do that.” I tell so many over and over to work for what they want.  The answer is always the same,” I don’t have time or money.” Or “I just cant do that.”  Well I got news for you.  Philippians 4:13 tell us,  “I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me.”  When I tell people to live by this, I hear them tell me, ”They asked God and prayed many times and nothing ever happen.”  Well I got more news for you.  The bible does not say God will do all things for you if you ask ! him. It tells us Christ will strengthen you.  Christ will work through you, by giving you strength and knowledge.  Lets look at what strength is.  Strength is the physical, intellectual or moral power one processes.  As good as my life might look, I still have to deal with hard ships.  The schools have test I have to study hard for if I want to pass. The time at schools take away from the fun things I want to do. The army sends me to all kinds of places away from my wife and kids for months and even years.  I not telling you this to make you feel sorry for me, but to let you know that I have to give up some things to get what I have.  I love my life that I live.  The reason why I have such a good life, I know how to get Gods strength.  I have the answer.  The bible tells us in Psalm 18:32 “It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.”  Strength is knowledge.  You want strength?  Seek the knowledge of the Lord.  The bible is a guide to life on earth.  You will find all the answers to the world in the bible.  Study the Word of God.  Live the way the bible tells you to live.  Your knowledge from the bible will show in the way you live your life, as long as you live by Gods Word. ! Doors will open up to you because other people will want what you have. And the good thing about that is you can teach them about the Word of God.  Every one can have the happiness that comes from knowing Christ and having faith in his Word. The more knowledge you receive the more strength you will have to do the things you want to do.  Colossians 3:16, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the lord.”  The Word of the Lord is what created all you see.  You are alive now because the Words of the Lord made us.  Study the Word.  There is ever lasting power in the Word.  I am happy not because I have a good life, cars, boats and a loving wife.  I am happy because I know how to live the way God commands.  All the things I have are the reward for the works I have done in Gods name.  Even the paycheck I get from my job.  For even at work, I live by the Word and give all glory to up high.  My wife loves me because I love her the way God commands a man to love his wife.  Yes I am blessed even in the hard times for I have faith in the Lord Jesus.  I know his Word will pull me throw all the hard times in my life.  I live by his Word, for this I am blessed by his Words.  God bless you all and! I hope this testimony of how I see life will help bring you closer to God and make your life a much nicer place.  SSG Avera Timothy W.
