Advancement Testimony


I grew up in a single parent home. My parents divorced when I was young.  Many things traumatized me.  My brain used to only store negative things.  I would drink at 4 in the morning and go to work drunk.  After a few years of working while drink, I had to do a drug and alcohol test.  I couldn't get away with that any more.  So, I was living on the ‎street and still gave in to the drugs and alcohol. The temptation was too great.

When I was here 10 years ago, I made some changes, but ‎never stopped listening to Satan. I need to make sure that I am focusing on God, not religion. I enjoyed going to lively church services, but I still did not focus on God.  UGM helps me focus on God and God alone.  Now, I look to focus on God, to find His nature and His creation in everything. He grace is sufficient for me.

I am an inheritance, a child of God.   He is my Father.  Now I have new role models here at UGM.  I remember the encouragement that the chaplains gave to me when I have very difficult days.  I try to remember these things now, instead of the negative things that were always in my mind. 

My favorite Bible verse I remember:

  • the Lord is my shepherd
  • Psalm 91
  • the Lord's prayer

I look forward to the next phase of recovery.
