The Isaiah House showed me a new way of living.
On May 26, 2019, I reluctantly walked in the front door at the Isaiah House. I was physically, psychologically, and spiritually broken. I didn’t recognize it at the time, but that was THE defining moment in my life up until that point. It would be the start of breaking the chains of active addiction, of learning to love myself, of reclaiming my life!
For as long as I can remember, fear consumed me, fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of not being loved. Ultimately, it led to heroin and meth abuse, and being completed disconnect from a REAL relationship with Christ. My life spiraled out of control and it cost me everything of value in my life.
Fast forward to today, almost three years after 5/26/19. Jesus has restored my life in ways I never thought was possible. I work full time in the recovery field, helping men and women get admitted into the Isaiah House!
I have friends who genuinely care about me. I have restored relationships with family, in particular my Mom, that I thought were fractured permanently. More than anything though, I have developed a relationship with Jesus, and started to wrap my mind around the supernatural way in which he loves EACH of us. The last two years have been challenging, and they haven’t been perfect, but that’s how life works isn’t it? If it’s worth having, you can expect some adversity.
The Isaiah House showed me a new way of living. Today when I am faced with adversity, I let Jesus advocate on my behalf!
