Joe's Journey

After 37 years of not accepting the Lord, He finally made me hear. I can only marvel at His ways when I look back on my life and see the how He moved my life. The chance meeting of my wonderful wife on a school bus I rarely rode, so that she would eventually be the key to my salvation was just one of those ways. It only took her nine years of hope, prodding and prayer to finally get through! Now that I am living my life with Christ, I see His hand in so many things. As I grow in my walk, I see more and more all that the Lord has blessed me with. It amazes me to think that not long ago, I was dead in my sin. Who could have ever imagined that in such a short time period, I would be sitting here involved with a ministry and racing motorcycles as a member of CSB Racing.

I know I belong here. The Lord has made it plain as day. Everything fell into place per His design. I am so eager to do the Lord's work and share His message. I am proof that there is hope for everyone. If someone as stubborn and set in my ways can realize that I need God in my life, anyone can.

As far as the track is concerned: "The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid?" Psalm 27:1

If you see me at the track. Please introduce yourself. If you already have the Lord in your heart, it is always great to meet a Brother. If not, I would love to talk to you and try to help you find the answers you seek for your life.
