Faith to Overcome

Faith in God has been my greatest tool in overcoming some huge problems in my life. I shot up dope for 14 years and no drug rehab, no psych ward, no intervention could deliver me from the hold of the drugs except the power and love of God.

My faith continued to become strong as I searched out scriptures that I identified with like, I am made in the image of God and Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. These and other verses, I spoke out loud to myself and they were like medicine to my soul. Eventually I became free from destructive habits; a serious eating disorder and self-injury.

One thing Ido know, there is nothing greater then the grace and mercy of God to set someone free of whatever has them bound. And this is true, what God has done for me, He can do for anyone who will call on His name.

There is a sentence in the Bible that says, Love has no fear. Perfect love drives out fear. I'm sure your love and faith in God is that strong to make you fearless.
