Revelation 12:11 states “and they overcame him by the blood of the lamb, and by the word of their testimony”. When I was in my addiction, I was not concerned with what anybody thought or if anybody was watching. I was mean and evil, living in sin and serving the only one who is worse than I am. I was on a continual quest to satisfy an insatiable heroin addiction. I was hurting my loved ones to the point that I would look at them as they slept and cry because of the pain I was causing them. What a miserable life to endure.
I was praying for God to help me and on June 29, 2012, He showed me mercy yet again. I was arrested. I know it must seem rather strange to be grateful for going to jail, but that is where the healing began. The amazing hand of God was in control. It usually takes an average of two months after entering jail to get into the RU program, but for me it only took five days. In no way do I feel that it was the program that saved me; however, it was a small part to a big plan.
Brother Al Page shared the gospel with me and led me to Christ. In July of 2012, I surrendered my selfish desires and decided that I would no longer live separated from God. I found hope by Jesus taking first place in my life. My disobedience can no longer be an option. Thank you, Jesus. Thank you for calling me out of the darkness.
