I am 33 and I gave my life to the Lord 2 yrs ago. I was lost and broken and drug addicted.I thought I believed in God, I thought that when I was old on my death bed that I could pray and ask forgiveness and I would go to Heaven. I didn't think I could ask for forgiveness now because I didn't think that I was ready. I didn't think the Lord would take me as the broken lost soul that I was. I didn't understand the meaning of mercy and grace. 2 years later I understand that if I had not been the broken and addicted soul I was, I would not have opened my heart to Jesus and let him in. I have been clean and sober for 1 yr and 6mo. I am in a healthy marriage, with our first child on the way, we are building a house and the blessing have not stopped since I gave my life to Jesus. He has delivered me from the chains of addiction and put a fire in my soul for him. I now voulenteer at a local rehab in hopes that the ladies there will see that if God can save a broken person as myself then they are not beyond saving. I give God all the praise and the glory for my life and I am grateful for all that he does for me. Thank you Jesus for never letting go.
