My life has been a long winding road. I have learned many hard lessons due to my own poor choices.
Guilt, sorrow, and shame came with my substance abuse and it ruled my life far too long. I grew tired of carrying those dark emotions but I often wondered if I was too far gone. You can see from my photo published along with this article that I became a street dweller. It took a piece of my humanity. This is a brief story about how I stepped out of the darkness. I crawled out of the gutter and was restored in all ways. It was God who did for me what I could not do for myself. I’ve always believed and worshiped a higher power, it’s just that I worshiped drugs, the streets, and the world. Something had to change.
