They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb,
and by the word of their testimonies.
I started using drugs when I was 11 years old. I wanted to get noticed and this was a way to try to be cool. Unfortunately, that led to an 18-year cycle of drug addiction that consumed me and left me homeless. When I came to Adult & Teen Challenge, I felt broken and beaten down. But, I eventually surrendered my life completely. Things happened that left my daughter in state custody, and I was devastated. But now I knew the Author of Peace, and I was overtaken by the love and grace of my Saviour. Jesus truly comforted me with an everlasting peace. He began making a way for me to get my daughter back, even when there seemed to be no way. People around me supported me with prayer and eventually, the courts allowed my daughter to come live with my dad and step-mom. I am now married, and I get to be the father that I was meant to be for my kids. The Lord has blessed me with so much that the devil tried to steal from me.
After high school, I enlisted in the military where I served for 5 years. Eventually, I became addicted to heroin. I began stealing from a friend and forging checks to support my habit. When I looked into the mirror, I was so lonely. Then I would ask God to please help me. My dad came to my home one day and began telling me how much he loved me and how they wanted to see me get help. My mom told me about Adult & Teen Challenge and I promised to give it a try. Right before we left, we went to church and the pastor shared with me that when I entered the door, God shared with him that He is ready for me to come back to Him. I knew I was on the right path. During my time at Adult & Teen Challenge, God rebuilt my life and trust in Him. I have fully surrendered my life to God and now I try to be a light to others.
