Testimony: From The Fog, Into The Light, Over Night

Sean's testimony "From The Fog, Into The Light, Over Night" on 8/06/2016, 8:14am...

I was raised in a good family setting as a kid but never really knew how to connect with GOD. My parents took me to church a few times but I really never did grasp the whole concept. By the time I was 15 I started drinking and smoking marijuana with no direction or plan for my future. I continued to smoke marijuana atleast 5-10 times a day for the next 8 years. I used to feel like I had no purpose in life and kept hitting dead end after dead end, I became very depressed inside without even realizing it. I would turn to getting high to deal with every situation I came across. At the age of 22 I discovered marijuana concentrates, a very potent form of marijuana which kept me very consumed and distracted from any chance of touching base with reality. I would come home from work and spend the rest of my day getting high and avoiding my family and people that didnít do exactly what I did, I lived a very selfish lifestyle and lived only to get high. At the age of 24 I had worked atleast 50 different jobs, nothing but dead ends I had become very depressed and broke, not a dollar in my pocket, no food in the fridge. It was that day I finally hit rock bottom and broke down in tears realizing I had been off path for too many years and I knew it wasnít right. That night I reached out to GOD in tears, I prayed and begged for forgiveness of my selfish life full of sin, I begged GOD to release me from the sins that had me bound, I prayed for work and another chance at life, and it was at that very moment I could feel my anxiety and fears lifting from my body, my mind lit up like never before, I could feel the connection, he was there with me. It was the first time in my life that I had actually prayed and I felt it, my heart was crying out for GODS wisdom and guidance. I woke up the next morning at 7AM to a phone call from my old boss telling me he had plenty of work for me and to get ready to stay busy. I jumped out of bed with an undescribable force of energy and motivation, my life was bright and full of joy because I knew I had finally made a real change and it happened only through GODs will. Over night I turned my back on marijuana and never looked back, it wasnít as if I quit, I just shed the addiction like a winter coat, I was simply no longer interested in dragging myself down by getting high. He helped me change my entire perspective literally over night. Itís been 3 weeks now, I havenít had the slightest urge to return to my old life style, I look back at my old self and it brings me to tears to see how lost and desprate I once was, it was only 3 weeks ago but it feels like 10 years. I have honestly been re-born, I am truly high on life, I read the bible every chance I get and pray 3 or 4 times a day. Itís amazing how far ive come in this short amound of time, it honestly a miracle I havenít ended up in prison for all of my poor decisions. GOD has always been here watching over me, all it took was one full hearted prayer to open the door to fill that empty void in my heart. GOD truly healed my weaping soul over night. Now I spend my days praising the lord and spreading the message to my family and close friends. I just feel ashamed that It has taken me 24 years to finally see the light and get on the right path. My life has never been so full of love and kindness, just like the bible says, I soar like an eagle with wings, my days are no longer a stuggle. I wake up every morning and thank the lord for allowing me just one more day to get closer to him and praise his amazing works. I could type for days in detail about how he has filled me with wisdom and positive energy but I will stop here to say a prayer for us all, we all deserve to see the light.
