God Has Been There All Along


Darrell Waltrip recalls his journey to meeting and accepting Christ as his personal Savior.

In 1983 I wasn't very popular. I was a smart-mouthed, cocky, arrogant sports figure. Then a couple of things got my attention. First, I had a serious accident in Daytona; it was a really ugly scene. After that crash, I said to myself, “My priorities are right.” I was so wrapped up in my professional life. I never thought about a commitment to God.

As I became more and more successful, I would think, “I have a great life, but I have this hollow feeling.” Soon I met minister named Dr. Cortez Cooper, and we developed a solid relationship. He was the first minister in my life who could really make the Bible come alive. With his help, I accepted Jesus as my Savior. I have learned that God is there all the time.
