Hi. I’m Rekt.
I consider my life to count for many reasons: to love and protect my family, to bless and influence other people, to be productive in business… the list is long.
But there can be only one main reason. For me, it is the single most important reason to be alive:
To honor God and spread His truth.
It’s been a long and difficult road to where I am today.
I came close to death 4 times in my first three decades. At 5, I drowned in a pool and was resuscitated by a mysterious and beautiful stranger no one knew. At 7, I escaped an attempted kidnapping at roadside. At 19, I survived a devastating car crash which resulted in major head injuries. And at 28, I was crushed under a backhoe tractor when it rolled down a hill at a construction site.
These traumatizing, near-death experiences changed me, and over time molded me into the man I am today.
Not long ago, I arrived at a crossroads in life; a kind of mental, spiritual, and emotional signpost, so to speak. I realized that life is a painfully brief journey, that only life lived for a higher purpose has any lasting meaning, and that the wisest people contemplate that sober truth, and live accordingly.
I considered who I love the most, and what I love to do the most. And I chose to blend them into one, all-out pursuit.
The result came to this: I wish to communicate the wisdom of God’s Word with those who care to hear it. The way I see it, this is a truly worthwhile endeavor!
To sum, life with purpose is a worthy life. If that purpose is to know and glorify God and His son Jesus Christ, then life has reached its ultimate peak.
And that is where I strive to be.
