How God Set Me Free

“I grew up in a normal family. I went to church every Sunday. But by the time I was 13, I started smoking pot and drinking. By the time I was 16, I was doing harder drugs. At 18, I dropped out of school and got a girl pregnant. My drug habit was more important to me, however, so I left her and the baby. From 18-25, my drinking and drug use got worse.

At 25, I met and married my wife. I promised my wife that I would give up my addictions, but six months later I was back to my old ways.

After 20 years of marriage, my wife finally asked me to leave. After telling her I stopped my addiction, she took me back. But, I started up again.

Finally, my daughter asked my wife and I to come to church with her. From the time I walked into Word Fellowship Church, I knew I had to change my ways. I confessed my problem to a dear friend in my small group. He spoke with our group leader, who got me help. I went to a place called the Colony of Mercy.

After 1 month, I asked Jesus into my heart and was saved!

It’s been almost 1 year that I’ve been free from my addiction and I owe it all to God. He gave me my life, and my family, back. Now all that I do, I do for the Lord.

I still have a long way to go. But with the Lord’s help, I will make it!”
