I am a recovering drug addict and alcoholic. I have been clean and sober for 7 years, 6 months and 6 days. I used to think that no one would ever love me. I was a bad person. Some of the things I did to get high were so horrible that I didn't even share them with my husband until recently. I knew something was missing in my life but I couldn't figure out what it was. I kept feeling a tug on my heart. I wanted my boys to be raised the right way, but it seemed like doing things the right way never got me any where. Till one day I walked into a local church. I instantly felt at home and the tug was looser the closer I got to the front of the church. I knelt down at the alter and asked God to forgive for all the things I had done and all the people I had hurt. That was last November. Since then, my boys and I are in church whenever the doors are open and we can be. We all love it so much and they are all so welcoming and accepting. I have since realized that I am never alone and God will always be with me and always love me no matter what I do. He gave His only Son so that I could be forgiven. I gave God the pen and I am letting Him finish my story.
