I couldn’t find enough drugs to make me happy. I couldn’t find enough alcohol to make me happy. I couldn’t find enough women to make me happy. I had all the money I wanted. I just couldn’t find happiness. There’s no drug, no amount of alcohol, no amount of women, no amount of money, no airplanes, cars, boats, planes. I don’t care what it is. I was about to lose my wife and three beautiful kids.

I decided to go to rehab to see if I could change my life. The moment I got there and was left alone, I got on my knees beside the bed, and I asked the Lord to take over my life. I surrendered every part of my body, every part of my mind, every part of my soul to Christ at that time. I know what born again is. They talk about it and you hear about it, but at that moment, my body, the past was taken away from me. All of the sins, I felt like God had taken them all out and filled me full of his Holy Spirit. From that day until today, I have not been the same person. Thank God.

So no matter how much you have, it’s just like drugs. When you get a high, you always want to go back to that original high. So when you have money and you’ve bought something, you get a little high, but you never can quite get back to that same high. The next time you want a bigger car. You want a faster car. You want a bigger boat or a faster boat. You want a bigger house or a bigger whatever it is. You never can meet that original high, so it’s never satisfied. That’s when you learn that it’s not about money. It’s not about things. It’s not about possessions. It’s about pleasing Christ and living your life for Him.
