[guestpost]I first met Holeigh at church camp. She was a teenage camper. I was a volunteer counselor. I never would’ve dreamed she’d one day sit in my class at the Haven of Hope. Here is her story.[/guestpost][featured-image single_newwindow=”false”]My name is Holeigh. I was raised in a Godly Christian Home. I loved God and anything that brought me closer to Him. I loved youth camps and youth conferences. I stayed plugged in.
At the age of 17, I stopped doing all those things because I wanted to fit in. Curiosity killed the cat. Right? I began to try drugs. You name it, I did it. I became an IV user. It was all fun until I found myself almost dead, loosing my children, and ending up in jail.
At this point, I was so misable with life. I hated living. I was convinced I was not gonna be anything more than a junkie.
I wanted help. I wanted to let God be my Savior. I was tired of running. I finally called on Him May 28th and told God I was done!
It has been a fight since that day, but I don’t regret giving my life to God. He hasn’t ever failed me! I have such a joy and peace about everything.
God’s got my life! I’m an overcomer. Amen!
God is already restoring everything back to me. I’m so thankful to God for giving me a second chance and showing me favor. Favor is being shown grace and mercy when we don’t deserve it.
But He did it. He truly delivered me. I am beyond blessed to be able to say I’m clean sober and in my right mind!
That’s the God I serve! I just love Him so much because He loved me. He died for me and if that’s not enough to be thankful for I don’t know what is!
Let God turn your mess into a message like He did for me. He isn’t a respecter of persons! Truly submit to Him. Not my will, but His will be done.
