“Dear Pastor Bobby,
I am currently incarcerated for theft, but I’m not a typical convict. Like you, I was a full-time minister for 25 years and served as an associate pastor.
After a painful experience at a church where I served for years, I was left with a deep wound and later attempted suicide. My life spiraled downward and I began gambling and stealing, which led to where I am now.
I tell you this to say how much I need Hour of Power each week. I used to switch the channel after the music because I thought I didn’t need to hear the message. But now my pride and my life have been broken into pieces and I listen to them. Thanks to your messages, God is putting me back together.
This week you said “this is your life story and you haven’t read the ending yet.” Though I have lots of guilt and need to forgive myself, I now know God’s love is irrevocable and He can still use me. Thanks for helping me on this journey. You are God’s vessel to me each week. He uses you in a powerful way.
