GMA, Early Show, Ellen Recap - Yahoo! TV
Above link on Yahoo TV shows the man with the booming voice, Ted Williams, as he finally finds the truth in God and now listens more to his mom to keep God in his heart.
In Proverbs 28:13, it states, "He who conceals his
transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion."
Blessed with 9 children, Ted Williams lost control of himself as he forgot about God and submitted to peer pressure, drugs and other vices.
Getting back to God has been his mom's advice but he never listened before and now, after his unfortunate ordeal of being lonely, sad and homeless, he finally finds compassion, forgiveness and redemption with the hands of God leading him to a brighter tomorrow as a video showing his beautiful voice went viral on the internet and on national television news that resulted in several job offers.
In Matthew 16:25-26, Jesus tells his disciples, “For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoesoever loses his life for me will find it. What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul?”
Indeed, God moves in mysterious ways and Ted, by the struck of fate, his moving story has become a worldwide sensation making him an instrument of God's love and mercy for man.
In the bible, the book Ecclesiastes reminds us that everything in life is meaningless, but not until we learn to understand the wisdom of God and strive to become mature in spirit that we learn to “fear God and keep His commandments, which is the duty of man,” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14), whence, shall God “bring indeed every deed into judgment, including every hidden things, whether it is good or evil.”
In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus says, “Come to me all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls, for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
As this touching story of Ted Williams unfolds, let us hope and pray that more Ted Williams will come to see God's light and wisdom by following the teachings of Christ Jesus, God's Only Begotten Son, especially in these days of economic depression and uncertainty when many people are lost and confused turning into quick remedies such as drugs, thievery and other crimes, sex, porn, gambling and other worldly vices and pleasures that can only lead into more troubles and problems as they get trapped into evil and into the dark side of life.
What is happening to us in this world is all of our making and we have to stand up and take responsibility by being more cognizant of our worldly and ungodly behaviors that has kept us away from God and prone to sin.
God has always reminded us to change but often, we do what is against His commandments and we never listen to His words of wisdom that can help us overcome everything in this life.
In Matthew 19:26, Jesus said to his apostles, “With God, all things are possible.”
And it is written in 2 Chronicles 7:14, "If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
The need for spiritual guidance and enlightenment in God through His Son, Jesus, can lead us to a better life ... and into life eternal life.
In John 14:6 Jesus said to His apostles, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. Further in John 3:16, Jesus said, “For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
