“If I can do this then anyone can!”
Denzil Hall- 5 years of sobriety
After 32 years of addiction, society, most of my family and honestly, even myself had given up on me. I had come to the end of myself in 2016, after multiple rehabs, being shot 3 times, stabbed multiple times, ending up homeless and down to eating out of dumpsters. I honestly at that moment had seen no way out and purposely overdosed just to try to end the misery I was living in. But evidently God had other plans for me.
I found myself walking back into the doors of the Isaiah House (for the second time) to begin a new journey of my life that has turned into something Simply Amazing!!
Today I’m celebrating 5 years of continuous sobriety and I am standing strong in my faith of our Heavenly Father!! When I walked through the doors of Isaiah House I knew I had a long battle ahead of me that must come with a lot of changes, not only laying down the drugs and alcohol, but most importantly, changing me from the inside out. Today I live a life that I only use to dream of. It isn’t perfect by any means, but it’s 100 times better than it was 5 years ago!!
I am a productive member of society. I have a job with great purpose as the kitchen manager for Isaiah House. I am married to my best friend and the love of my life, we have an amazing 2 yr. old son (Isaiah) and I have 4 bonus kids that I love just as mine. We have our own home that’s filled with love and craziness (that’s just us), our bills are always paid, there’s food on the table and shoes on our feet(😁)
I’ll leave you with this. No matter where you’re at in your life, there is always one that stands beside you, God!! You see, I was the guy that always thought that I couldn’t escape the grasp of addiction, but God had a BIGGER PLAN!!! If I can do this then anyone can!!
