My addiction had made me feel like I was riding a Ferris wheel. Riding it around and around waiting to get off, but when it would stop I would be stuck at the top, completely hopeless and helpless. In my heart I knew I needed help, but I didn’t know where to turn or have the resources to get the help I knew I needed. Being hopelessly stuck in my addictions, the biggest struggle was finding a ride to The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC). I wanted to live though and not die, and with great confrontation I made it to the ARC.
Here at the ARC I had found myself, and most important I found God again. Finding peace and grace though Christ, I now have hope and truly believe that the ARC is God inspired and for that I am grateful. I have done most of my work therapy here at the ARC doing several different jobs, with an attitude to show how grateful that I am to God, the ARC, and the people that have helped me along the way. It has given me a purpose to live again and a sense of worth. I know I am on the correct road to recovery, and the future is bright.
I now want to focus on my life in Christ. There are some goals in life I have set, but most importantly is my relationship with God. So I am going to seize the day for God. I am going to trust, believe and follow Christ’s example. I would like to leave you with the scripture that I truly believe: “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength” Phil 4:13. I can accomplish the things He wills for my life. This is just the beginning of my walk with God, now I never walk alone. AmenTags: News
