Stump Testimony

Once, I was in a bad place in my life, my wife had told me she needing some time apart to think about what she wanted to do with her life & she didn't think it included me in it anymore. That really tore me up at the time, because we had 2 children & all I could think of was what's gonna happen to my kids. Anyways, she told me to get my stuff & get out! I said, "Where am I supposed to go?" She said, "You can go stay with your parent's for now." Well, okay, I did just that, hoping maybe after a little while she would miss me & ask me to come home. But that never happened! So as time went on, I just started feeling depressed & so lonely all the time. I turned to alcoholic beverages to make me feel better, but guess what?, it only made me feel better for a little while. then the depression, would return. So one night after the alcohol wouldn't even take the pain of my depression away any longer, I decided I was going to end this pain by taking myself out of this world. I was only thinking of self at the time, no one else knew about my depression or loneness. I mean, in my head & my thoughts at the time no one cared or loved me any longer at all.. So, I proceeded on my mission to end my life by crashing my Ford 4x4 truck into this HUGE TREE just down the road from her home, so she would be sure to know what she had done to me. But as I was just fixing to RAM this HUGE TREE a very Bright Light appeared in front of me. I thought maybe it was a vehicle with it's lights on bright. But then the Voice of GOD spoke and said, " You are loved, my child, I have great plans for your life." And my truck of course came to a screeching hault! It wouldn't move at all, forward or backwards! I was just trying to get out of there now after this voice spoke to me & this bright light had shown all around me. Then I decided to get out of my truck to see why all of the sudden it would not move. I opened my door & noticed my truck was up off the ground and was just sitting there upon a huge stump! So I jumped out of my truck & wondered for a while, what just happened to me? Then I decided to walk down the road to my father in law's house & get him to pull my truck off this stump. Well after I woke him up & we get back down there to pull my truck off the stump, guess what? You guessed it, the truck was just sitting there on flat ground with no stump no where to be found. And yeah, you guessed it again, my daddy in law looked at me like I was crazy & said, "How many have you had to drink?" So, God did have a plan for my life, & I bet he has a plan for yours as well...
