After many years of my brother in law, Phillip speaking to me about the Lord I still wasn’t ready to fully hear or receive the love of Jesus Christ and didn’t want any part of it. I was too busy doing my own thing but Phil never gave up. I thank God everyday that he didn’t.
After splitting up with my son’s father, I was very depressed and angry. I started using illegal drugs and alcohol to numb my pain. I was falling deep into the “addict” life. I didn’t care about anything.
February 2013 was the turning point in my life. Because of my lifestyle I lost custody of my son. By the grace of God, my sister Hope and her husband Phil were able to take quick action to care for him. I definitely felt like my world was crashing and falling apart at the seams.
I split from my son’s father. I lost my son. I was working for a boss who was the one feeding me the drugs. I quit speaking to my mother who I formerly talked to on a daily basis.
During the time my son was at my sister’s I spent plenty of time learning about the Lord. Soon I didn’t feel as if my world was falling apart. After receiving the Lord, He changed my life! He redeemed it in many ways and blessed me abundantly more than I could ever imagine.
My son came home earlier than expected. My living situation is much healthier than before. I found work in a field ten times better than what I was doing before and most of all I learned that my Heavenly Father loves me no matter what!
