imageHello my name is Gary Clarke and I want to tell you how Jesus has changed my life.
Firstly I want to thank The Lord Jesus Christ for truly saving my soul and giving me a reason to live. I met my beautiful wife Suzie way back in 2002 at the North West 200, after knowing each other for a week we moved in together and started on a life style of drugs and bikes. I’m not telling this story to give the devil glory but to give God the glory for what he has delivered my family from.  Suzie and I were smoking dope 24/7 we were taking speed, ecstasy, magic mushrooms, and sometimes coke. The drugs started of as just a social thing but then turned into a need, every week for 6 years we were taking in excess of 50 ecstasy tablets it went on and on, to fund our habit we even sold a bit. The circle of friends we had, had the same out look on life drink drugs and bikes. Suzie and I had our first son in 2003 and our second son in 2004 but the life style still went on raising 2 boys and doing drugs. When I think back I wonder how did we really cope. My life was spiralling out of control my friends weren’t aware what was going on in my head, I was putting on that mask they talk about ( I’m great how’s you mate ). In 2006 I had a mental break down I lost the plot as we say here in Belfast, my head went due to the years of drug abuse. I was suicidal and I knew all I had to do was ride my bike at speed into a lorry and that would be it, i use to hold my handle bars tightly passing other traffic as I knew how easy it would be to end it but was always aware that my family were at home for me. I remember hearing on the tv that if you ever felt suicidal talk to someone,   I was low in life depressed more than I can explain. I had every thing a beautiful girl who loved me , my children my bikes my job but I was running on empty, I needed to talk to some one and I did ,my doctor , i needed help, being a bloke , we don’t like to ask for help or talk about how we feel due it being a weakness. The doctor was a great help he gave me six months off work on the sick put me on a high dose of anti depressants  put me on blockers and sent me to see a councillor, I didn’t tell my doctor I had a drug problem, and so it continued I was mixing my prescribed drugs with my drug habit getting deeper and deeper something had to give. My insides felt like they were rotting my chest was always sore, i could not breath properly, bones aching, riding my bike at high speeds on drugs when was it going to stop. I would call out to God for help and one night lying in bed I heard a voice clearly say I will make a way were there seems to be no way. My life was a mess and the doctor could not help me only God himself could fix my trail of destruction and this is how he did it. I believed in God I believed there was a Heaven and a hell but what I didn’t understand what sin was. It’s so easy to tell someone they are a sinner and I was, but it meant nothing.
A man spoke the word of God to me in December 2007 he told me straight that my sin was taking me to hell , Jesus Christ saved me I cried out to him I told him I was sorry for all the sin in my life I told him I was sorry for rejecting him I told him I was sorry for hurting my family I told him I was sorry for destroying my own body I was sorry for all the people I had hurt along the way with a sincere heart I said sorry and I asked Jesus to please forgive me, to give me a life worth living to make amendments with my family to heal the brokenness within me and you know what he did. My life has been turned 360 degrees I don’t do drugs anymore I don’t smoke anymore I don’t drink alcohol anymore im not even on prescribed drugs im clean I’ve been clean and living for Jesus for just over 5 Years now I want Jesus in my life every day I want Jesus in my family life every day. Jesus has changed my way of thinking my mind is my own he healed me from depression. I Married  Suzie in May 2008 and she also gave her life to Jesus in July 2008 sure we still have the normal things that life throws at you every day, but we face every day life with Jesus. When Suzie got saved she said and still says that she is no longer just existing, but now living.
I love Jesus I talk about Jesus , why do I do that, because he first loved me he is the reason I live I know we’re I’m spending my eternity in, Heaven, were are you going to spend your eternity. I had to realise what sin was. Romans 7v7 What then shall we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. For I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”  Romans 3v20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. The Law is Gods Ten Commandments. The 7th commandment is you shall not commit adultery, was I an adulterer Yes. The 8th Commandment says you shall not steal did I steal Yes, the 9th Commandment says you shall not lie did I lie Yes. I’ve only answered yes to these three but if asked the rest I would also answer yes I’ve broken all the Commandments. I had to realise I was a lier a thief and an adulterer.  1 Corinthian 6v9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,
10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.  Only Jesus Christ could save me from my sin and he did when I realised what my sin was. God himself came to this earth in the form of man born through the Virgin Mary and his name was Jesus, he was hear just over 2000 years ago. Jesus allowed himself to be beaten to a pulp and nail to a cross and lifted high above the earth for all to see and they shouted out hear is your God Jesus King of the Jews. Jesus died that day on the cross but that wasn’t the end for on the third day he rose from the dead, Jesus is alive and some day you are going to stand before him and give an account of your life as I will. Jesus love for you put him on that cross It was a rescues mission from Heaven for you and me for thousands past and thousands to come. There won’t be any liers or thieves or adulterers in Heaven, Jesus hung on that cross knowing there is a hell and he was making a way for us to be saved. If there was a house fire and you knew your family were in there beds sleeping and you were outside the house watching it burn you would not be standing there quiet you would be banging the door frantically shouting get out get out get out fire fire fire. John 3v16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  The bible says in Psalm 14 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” I’ve had a real encounter with God he’s changed my life and I’m always going to be a work in progress,  we have all fallen short but Jesus has made a way were there seemed  to be know way.
