How I Went From Darkness to Light

Colossians 1:13 says God rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of light.

Before it happened to me: I was drinking heavily, using drugs, and contemplating going to one of those Wicca meetings.

A lot of people desire the freedom to live this way, and I guess they should have it. But I can tell you right now, no-one who lives this way is really happy. I know I sure wasn’t.

God had been knocking on the door of my heart ever since I was a little girl, I just wasn’t ready to let him in until then. I desperately wanted freedom from how I was living, but I still wanted to hold on to how it made me feel.

But in that moment when it happened, the peace of God entered my heart and I was never the same.

I wouldn’t take $100 million to go back to that life I was SO clinging to.

Today my life certainly isn’t perfect. And like most of you, I’ve had a lot of trials, heartaches, setbacks, and disappointments. But, like the famous hymm goes: “I once was lost, but now I’m found – was blind but now I see.”

    funny how we sometimes try to hold on to the things that hurt us the most. There is such freedom in letting it all go….
