Testimony

A gentleman in the New Life in Christ recovery program shared his testimony with the staff, volunteers and fellow residents this week.  Here are some of the thoughts he shared.

The first time I came here to the program, I was forced to come by the justice system 25 years ago.  Everyone was nice to me while I was here for just over 2 years.  I did not know Jesus, things just did not make sense to me.  I had a relative that was here with me that helped me along.

Once I left the program, it didn't take long before I was back to my old lifestyle.  I should be dead from everything I had done.  I came back to the program again and again.  Every time I slipped back to my addictions.  People asked why I kept going back to Union Gospel Mission.  I believe Jesus was calling me back.  Someone had called me a lifer.  This really bothered me, but as I thought about it, I realized I am a lifer.  Every day the devil reminds me of my addictions and is trying to draw me back.  I have to keep thinking about Jesus, He is the answer.  I have to stop trying to fill the hole in my heart with drugs and alcohol and remember Jesus.

He then shared Psalm 63:1-5 which says " 

You, God, are my God, earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you, my whole being longs for you, in a dry and parched land where there is no water.  I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld your power and your glory.  Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.  I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands.  I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you."
