Before entering Adult & Teen Challenge I did not trust easily, I was hard-hearted and shut people out. Some very important people in my life passed away so I turned to drugs, alcohol and controlling the people around me to deal with my pain. Thankfully God had a different plan for my life. In the midst of the chaos He brought Christian pastors and leaders into my life, who would try to help me deal with my pain in a healthy way. I tried but could not seem to be able to make it stick for long enough to have true freedom.
Since entering the program I am learning how to let God in as well as other people. For the first time in my life I am experiencing His love. I have been tempted to give up some days but He keeps calling me deeper. God hasn’t given up on me so I won’t give up on Him!
“It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built.” – Luke 6:48
