The Night I Got Saved

Real Life Story 

The Night I Got Saved

by Joseph Wayne Freeman


The night I got saved I was in a bar, the Kozy Keg in Baton Rouge La. I had gone out there & started my weekend out getting drink for years. I got there early & went in with the owner & his head barmaid to do setups. I went down to the far end of the bar where I could watch the front door to see if any of my enemies were coming in. I had a lot of them then. This was the first & last time I ever heard God speak in an audible voice. a quiet voice behind me in the corner said, "Get up & leave now". I jumped up ready to fight; but there was nobody there. I headed for the front door quick. My right hand man was coming in & he told me, "What's wrong with you LOBO. You're white as a sheet". I told him, "I don't want to talk about it. I just want to get the hell out of here". I went home; but I couldn't sleep; so I drove down to the lake by the state capitol & wrestled with God for 7 hours before I got rid of all of the hate & bitterness I had in me. I finally collapsed on my knees & told God, "If You exist I want to know the truth. If You do exist, I'll serve you for the rest of my life." Next thing I know Somebody was there with me & I experienced the love & compassion of God for the first time in my life. That was at 3 am on June 7th, 1980. I've been serving God ever since.
