My name is Rick. I'm a 27 year-old male who has recently been called back by God. My story gets kind of long so I'll type the basics of it here.

I was raised in church and went to Christian schools almost all my life. About two years after I got out of high school I started being exposed to the ways of the world and turned my back on God. Living life the way I wanted it. I did a lot of things I'm not proud of. Sex, drugs, alcohol, anger, hatred, perverseness, depression, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts.

For eight years I dealt with depression on an almost daily basis. I would fee trapped, alone, angry, sad, like life wasn't worth living anymore. I tried medications, therapists, dietary supplements and self-power to overcome this. When those didn't work, I turned to alcohol, sex and whatever else could make me feel better at the time.

I listened to music that was angry, perverse and blasphemous and didn't give it a second thought.

I lived my own life up until January 2010. I was on a social interactive chat site and I met a friend on there who just so happened to be Christian. We started talking and realized we had went to the same type of Christian schools and I started listening to Christian music again so that I would have something else in common with this girl to talk about, because at the time I had told her "I'm comfortable with the way my life is". What a load of lies that turned out to be!

It was through the music and through my friend that God began to call me back. He started by lifting the blindfold off my face and showing me my life was not a happy one, then the more I listened to Newsboys and Audio Adrenaline, I began to feel love and peace. Not the "It's a good day so far, nothing's gone wrong and I just got something new" happy, but rather a calmness, an inner peace that I had never really felt before. I finally realized that this was God showing me His love and calling me back.

Since then I have been working on my relationship with Jesus. I've been reading the bible, trying to stay away from the perverseness that was my old life. In just this short time God has shown me things I'd never even imagined and I'm so thankful for every bad thing that happened in my old life because it allows me to appreciate the life I have with Him. And I'm also thankful for being able to experience the things I did because it gives me an experience that I can relate to people today.

Thanks to God's love, forgiveness and mercy I'm able to share my story today.
