I had just stopped using cocaine all together when my boyfriend started to use meth. I quickly moved on to Meth and spent the next year and a half getting high, staying up for days at a time and crashing. After about a year and a half I was having heart problems. I didn't go to a doctor but could feel my heart beat being off. It scared me bad but I had no idea how to stop. Without even praying to God He heard my pleas and desire to stop and knocked down walls around me that was keeping me stuck in the spot of continuing my meth use.
We got kicked out of the house we were living in and I had lost my job. We moved into a house his brother was renting and my boyfriend started growing pot. We then got raided by the police and taken to jail. We were forced to move into my boyfriend's friends house for about a month and it was during that time that it wasn’t really available to me. I got a new job and no longer felt like I needed it anymore. If God hadn't of taken away everything that He did and provided me with new things, a new job, a place to live then I would have been on it for much longer, maybe even died still smoking it while my heart was physically telling me to stop. Jesus knew exactly what I needed to get off of it completely and paved the way for all it to happen. His grace was shining bright through it all.
I also embezzled money from a job I had when I was on those drugs and when I wrote a letter confessing everything to the owner and asking for forgiveness I thought I was going to get jail time but instead got a letter back saying I was forgiven.
Wow God has really moved mountains in my life. Writing them down and hearing them again has made me realize how incredibly powerful and loving He is. Words cannot say how grateful I am. I deserved nothing and God has given me everything. He is my everything!
If you can relate to this person’s story know that God loves you and wants to help you out of anything you are stuck in or any struggle you are facing. Even if you can’t relate, but need God to move in your life, then ask Jesus to help you and be a part of your life. Say to God, “God I need your help. Help me with ______________” or “Jesus please be in my heart and life. I need you.”
God loves you so much. It doesn’t matter what you have done or said He loves you, wants to help you, and be in your life.
