Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As I write this letter my mind is on Christ. The Scripture that comes to mind is Proverbs 3:5-6 and Matthew 6:31-33. Being a new believer in Christ has changed my perspective so dramatically when it comes to the purpose of my life. Before my rebirth, I didn’t feel that I had a purpose and deep down in my heart was a vast emptiness that could never be filled as hard as I tried. I believe that is why most people use drugs, at least that is why I did. Through Christ I have the wisdom to understand this and also the power and strength to overcome that which is an ugly thing called addiction. Through Christ all things are possible. All the glory goes to God.
I truly feel He has given me a new life and for the first time a purpose which is a desire to serve Him. As long as I acknowledge Him in all ways, He promises to direct my paths. So first and foremost, I thank God for the opportunity to serve Him in any way I can. I don’t know how that is at the moment, but I do love and trust the Lord with all my heart, and I believe He will reveal this to me in time.
Having the chance to attend the Teen Challenge program for recovery is such a blessing and again I thank God. I also would like to thank Philip and Kathie Zodhiates for being there for me and caring enough about me to help guide me in the right direction. They are my family, and I love them so much. Then, there is Janet Stasulli who I would like to thank for helping set up the page that brought in all the donations for the intake fee to the program. I don’t know where I would have come up with the money for the program, but she provided a solution and even though I have never met her, I hope to be able to thank her in person one day. Finally, I would like to thank all the people who donated money to get me the help that I need, and to my loving family and friends who have supported me on my journey through transformation into becoming a servant of God! I hope one day that I can help someone find Christ and their purpose in life through Christ. All the glory is His! God bless!
