Lord I’m Ready Now

There’s hope in Christ if you’re struggling with an addiction! I pray God uses my story to give others hope.

“Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom” 2 Corinthians 3:17

I always wanted to “fit in” somewhere in life. I grew up going to church and was taught about God, but never really understood I could have a personal relationship with Him through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ until later in life. After searching in my emptiness, I thought I had found a place I “fit in” and that was with all the drug addicts and partiers.

One drunken night I was asked if I wanted to try cocaine. I was instantly hooked. I believed the lie from Satan that this could make me be the outgoing person I always wanted to be. (I’m very introverted and struggled with a lot of fears) but I could talk to anyone. Everyone accepted that person and I had so many friends. It also numbed all this pain I had inside.

I continued to believe all the lies Satan kept feeding me. This led to a life of misery and destruction that went on for so many years of my life. I witnessed several overdoses, had a gun pulled on me, was abused sexually, mentally and physically. I felt so alone and helpless. I was about 80 lbs. and felt I had nothing left.

But God, so rich in his love, mercy and grace, got my attention. He used a song by the Christian singer Plumb, called “Lord I’m Ready Now” and I instantly dropped to my knees in desperation crying out to Him for help. I felt this huge burden just lift completely off of me. I knew it had to be God! He delivered me from the cocaine in that moment of surrender. He started changing me from that day on! I’m beyond grateful his great love, grace, mercy and forgiveness.

If he can change me, I know he can change anyone! He wants all to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and none to perish. I just want everyone to know there’s hope in Christ, so never give up! Give your life to him and trust in him as your Lord and Savior. its the best decision you’ll ever make!
