I found myself desperate for a shot. I thought that meth was all I needed in life. It took everything from me I loved. I thought that as long as I had dope the things I loved didn't seem to matter anymore. I found myself walking on the side of the road in a middle of a storm. I made it to my dope mans house but he wasn't home. I decided to wait on his porch for the storm to pass. All alone I had something click in my brain that I had finally hit the rock bottom everybody told me about. I cried out for God to kill me if I had to continue living this way. The next day I was arrested and I found God sitting with my orange on. Jeremiah 29:11 became my lifeline. I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord; plans to prosper you an don't to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope. Thank you God that girl died with that last shot and for letting the light bulb click on in my head. Thank you for saving me from the gutter. I plan to live the rest of life in your glory. Thank you for new beginnings.

Great testimony. The writing could maybe use a paragraph?
May God keep you away from drugs forever. Keep Writing!

This is a powerful testimony and if it is a true story, which I suspect that it is, it took a lot of courage to write it. I could see you expanding on it for the testimony contest (http://faithwriters.com/testimonycontestpage.html) It needs some polishing and some more details, but I think it is something that would show others how you came to find God in the midst of a meth haze.

Thank you for sharing this to the point message. I pray that you stay clean and free. Keep writing for the glory of God.
