At 14 I started experimenting with drugs. I dropped out of school because I skipped so much school it became the point of no return. Every day was a mission to get high on some sort of pain pills. I have overdosed so many times i can’t even count on both hands.
I never thought about God. I didn’t think about tomorrow. I was a thief, a drug addict and over all a miserable person. At the time I thought there was no way out. I would occasionally think that all it took was my own will power or maybe just to quit my job so I wouldn’t have any money. So, I did. That’s when I started stealing money from my family.
Then one night sitting in the living room nodding out on Oxycontin I started watching Kirk Cameron on t.v. And when I heard what they were teaching I started understanding the gospel. It was the truth, and I couldn’t deny it anymore. I knew God was angry at me. Seeing myself in all his holiness made me feel ashamed of my sins. I mean, here is this unconditional love that God has for me and everyone and I have been sinning against him! It was a change in my life.
I began to pray, read the bible, and meditate on God’s word and because I knocked, he answered me and gave me a new heart, a new life, and after all my transgressions, I was forgiven, and the Holy Spirit came into my life and no drugs could compare to the holiness and pureness of a new body and mind that God gave me.
If you are saved you know what I’m saying, instead of thinking about myself I see life totally differently. I’m now 17 years old. I now like apostle Paul; I realize that my life is meaningless except to speak the truth of the gospel. Thank you for reading my testimony. Peace be to you. amen.
