“Now I’m a Child of God!”
My addiction nearly killed me.
For over 12 years, I lived only for my next hit. I pawned everything I owned, lost my dream job, and didn’t care what I had to do . . . as long as I had my fix.
But then I suddenly realized how tired I was. As I looked back on my life, I was disgusted with myself — my selfishness, cold-heartedness, the hate I felt. I felt ashamed. More than that, I knew I didn’t want to hurt the people who loved me anymore.
“Thank you for providing me a place to get my life back. Or rather, to experience a brand-new life in Christ! Please continue to give to help transform more lives like mine.”
