The VoiceThank you for a place to share my miracle.
I started drinking and using drugs when I was about 14-15 years old. I come from a dysfunctional family and broken home (don't we all?), and my life was filled with pain, pain and more pain.
I had been through treatment after treatment. I was the worst of the worst. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior on a Church bus as a small child.
20 years of heavy drinking and drug using, which had escalated to a needle in my arm, had beat me down and I do mean down - to the bottom over and over again. It was a dark, dark, scary place that I would never wish on another living human being.
I'm not exactly sure how I got to the physical location where I ended up on February 12, 2003. I was not capable of driving myself there. God or one of his angels must have been driving that day. I was in the floorboard of my Ford Ranger truck in Decatur, Georgia.
There is a lot that leads up to this point, but here's the best part. I heard a voice (male) and the voice said, "This is the God of Moses. I have something for you, are you ready?" I said "yes". The voice said, "it's a gift from God, you're getting your miracle." At that moment I felt a warm tingling feeling in my lower back and something lifted my chin up and my eyes were lifted to look upward toward the sky.
I knew at that point, I got a miracle. A feeling came over me like everything was finally, finally going to be o.k. My life was forever changed. And get this; he even gave me back my smile!
I now have one year and four months clean and sober. God gave me a "One Step". I have a life now that I never had before. I have peace now that I never had before. I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend... a Child of God!
Thank you God for giving me my miracle!!!
