What it was like?
Demoralizing and hopeless like going through life being a fraction of who I was capable of being. 17 years living lost and broken only to be saved by Grace and freed from the self made prison of guilt, shame, anger, and hatred.
August 26th, 2015 was the last time I was broken on the inside. I overdosed in an Elementry School parking lot which lead to my arrest and several charges...then God came into my life and transformed me into the man I had always dreamed about becoming
What it is like now?
I don’t even have words to describe or articulate how amazing my life is now. All I can say is that I have true freedom, inner peace, a purpose and a life that I wake up excited to live every day. I now pass my eternal burning torch to other addicts for a living as I have been shown a new way to live!
