My sixteen years of heroin addiction were driven by one thing: self. I lived to satisfy myself only. Even my mindset about Jesus was motivated by self-gratification, and worrying about ME always seemed to get in the way.
I knew I could not continue to live the way I was living. After many failed attempts in various rehabs, once again I found myself in jail facing a felony charge. My record was a convincing history that I had been defeated and drugs had won.
Since being at Life Challenge I feel victory on the inside, and a new understanding of who Jesus is. The most important change taking place is that now I want to live for the glory of God and for His name’s sake and not just for myself. My relationship with my wife and kids has been restored. If I had to pick a life goal and motto it would be: Making Jesus Famous.
My favorite scripture is Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
