This is from my heart. Hope it will touch yours. I been a addict for over 20 years. When you know in your heart that how and where is this madness going to stop. You tried inpatient, outpatient, NA/AA meeting. But I knew I couldn’t do it by myself.
And I heard about Jesus. Didn’t know how he was going to help me. But I decide to give him a try. I had to totally give it to him. Not be around people, places, things. I had to put myself around a safe environment, around positive people and find a Bible teaching church.
Know one said that it was going to be easy. But every day got better. I had to decide that I was tired of going back to jail, eating that nasty food, someone telling me when to sleep and when to get up.
I haven’t had a drug or a drink for 13 months. Life is awesome. I attend church every Sunday, Bible studys every Tuesday. I’m involved in two ministries at church – usher, psalm ministries. I do occasionally run into that old crowd but I decided in my heart I love serving Jesus Christ Almighty.
