Blake Koch's Christian Testimony
For as long as I can remember, I have had a close relationship with Jesus Christ. When I was 20 years-old, I started racing Stock cars. From the first day I got into a racecar, I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I wanted to become a NASCAR driver, and I knew that with God all things are possible. After about eight races in a Crate motor pro-truck, I was given the opportunity to race a late model. Some people thought that I was moving up way too fast, but all of my life I have just gone with the flow and followed the steppingstones that God laid out for me; because, that is what I prayed for.
After about 10 late model races, I got the opportunity to try out for the Richard Childress Development Team in the NASCAR Camping World Series West. Again, most people thought I was getting in way over my head, but I had faith that this is where God was taking me. After qualifying 4th in my first NASCAR event, I was signed as primary driver for the 2009 season. There was only one thing getting in the way, sponsorship dollars. My family didn’t have the funds to get me into the series, so we had to go find a sponsor. We signed the contract knowing that God would prevail like he always does. Weeks went by and all we were getting were rejections. Throughout this time, although it was naturally tough, I tried not to be worried and knew that it was in God’s hands. My dad always told me that God comes through in his timing. Well, my dad was right; God came through in a BIG way. He brought GodSpeaks.com and the foundations behind it. GodSpeaks.com started off with billboards with catchy sayings like, “life is short, eternity isn’t.” The main goal of this outreach is to get people thinking about God on a daily basis. Now, they want to give the 75 million NASCAR fans the opportunity to come to Christ.
To sum it all up, if you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, and stay obedient to His Word, He will show up in your life in such a big way. When God is in it, there is no stopping it.
