I had reached a period in my life when I began to think about all of the things I had accomplished and what it meant. I had everything I ever dreamed I’d want: a successful singing career, a loving husband, money to have so many things: a beautiful home, expensive cars, fine clothes. Yet, I had begun to realize that there was still something missing. But how? How could I have achieved all of this and still feel as if something was missing from my life?
This didn’t make any sense to me, so I decided that I wouldn’t tell anyone, not even my husband Billy. If I told him that my life seemed incomplete, I was afraid he might take it personally. And I didn’t dare tell my friends because they might think I was spoiled or just plain ungrateful. I could hear them say, “Well, what more do you want, Honey? I mean, you have everything!”
Two weeks later, I prayed to receive Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. It didn’t take long for me to realize that there was a difference in the way I felt inside. The emptiness began to fade. One day I realized that the void was gone. God had replaced the pain with peace – a peace that success can’t buy.
