Rock & Roll Legend Carlos Santana Reveals How Jesus Saved Him After Seven Suicide Attempts

Mark Aserit : Jun 1, 2017  Gospel Herald

"You have to go through the darkest night of the soul to get to the brightest light of the day.” — Carlos Santana

(Los Angeles, CA)—[Gospel Herald] Mexican-American musician Carlos Santana revealed how believing in Jesus Christ helped him to overcome the chains of depression. When his wife Deborah left him after 34 years of marriage, suicidal thoughts haunted Santana. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he admitted he attempted suicide seven times. It was only through God's grace that his life was spared, he said. (Photo: Carlos Santana/via Gospel Herald)

He explained going to a local church, hearing accusing voices saying his life was very miserable. But it was Jesus' voice that gave him hope to live and brought him renewed joy that he never found in music.

Santana openly talked about growing up in a dysfunctional family where his father abandoned him. At the age of ten, he was repeatedly molested by a friend's father who bribed him into silence. The pedophile's actions instilled guilt and fear in the boy. It had taken years before Santana forgave his molester. With the help of God's grace, the burden of his past was finally lifted...

Santana came to a point where he realized that his life is in the hands of God, not his own. His dark past helped him to trust in God's plan for his life.

Santana had a plan to retire as a musician in 2015 to become a pastor. He said he wants to help people who are undergoing troubles in their life.  He still doesn't know how the plan is going to unfold, but he said: "God is not done with me"...
