The last eleven months have been a completely unexpected blessing in my life….a blessing I didn’t think I deserved.
Before coming to Teen Challenge, I was isolated from my family, in and out of abusive relationships and battling a heroin addiction for eight years. When I lost custody of my newborn son, I felt that I had completely failed as a mother and fell further into addiction. I started doing meth – something I told myself I would never do.
After multiple detox facilities, feeling desperate, and afraid for my life, I was finally ready to surrender to God and enter Teen Challenge. Since coming into the program just five months ago, God has restored my relationship with my family; I now get to see my son often. Today I have hope, and I no longer feel weighed down. I trust in the Lord, knowing He has a plan for my life.
Matthew 11:28 says,
“Come to me, all you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
I have finally found peace in Jesus Christ! – Michelle
