Since I wrote last My dear Mom passed away. I feel like I have been prepared for the loss of my Mother but its still very difficult to loose your own Mother. I am so thankful for the strength and comfort that has come through knowing and living he Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Christ contains all of lifes greatest answers. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a true source of peace and comfort in lifes hardest times. I do not know what I would do without my testimony in the reality of Gods ETERNAL plan. I will miss my Mother dearly, but I know she is very much alive in the spirit world with my Dad her eternal companion.
As a recovering drug addict it is so important to be prepared for life's curve balls such as death or the loss of a job or any hardship. As recovering addicts we must have a solid foundation to stand on when life throws a curve ball. We must have coping skills in place to ensure that we dont turn to drugs and alcohol for comfort and peace during lifes difficult times. For me this solid foundation is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In fact it is Jesus Christ Himself that I turn to for peace. He is very much alive and has real power to grant us in times of need. It is our job to come unto him. It is our job to invite Him into our hearts. We do this throgh sincere prayer, scripture study, and attending spiritual meetings. I work very hard to stay strong physically, mentally, and spiritually. As a result I feel my life is on a sure foundation, a foundation that provides real strength and safety when Satan strives to drag me down. I tell you this not to brag in any sort of way but to be a living breathing testimony to all the world that REAL STRENGTH AND COMFORT comes from living the principles of the Gospel. Our Savior Jesus Christ is readily available to grant us the strength we need as we turn to Him. We must do our part. One of my favorite scriptures comes from the Book of Mormon in the book of Helaman chapter 5: 12. It says "And now my sons, remember remember that it is upon the rock of our redeemer who is Christ the son of God that ye must build your foundation; that when the devil shall send forth his mighty winds, yea, his shafts in the whirlwind, yea, when all his hail and his mighty storm shall beat upon you, it shall have no power over you, to drag you down to the gulf of misery and endless wo, because of the rock upon which ye are built, which is a sure foundation, a foundation whereon if men build they cannot fall." My friends please hear me when I tell you that drigs and alcohol are not the answer to lifes problems. Infact they make lifes problems much worse. They will drag you down to the gulf of misery. I beg of you to come unto Christ and find true peace and comfort.
I testify to you that this foundation is real. I am experiencing the strength and comfort in my life now as I mourn the loss of my Mom. I am a true testimony that Jesus Christ is real, His power is unlimited. I invite you to learn of Him and tap into His peace that only He can offer. It is a peace that the world cannot offer. It is a peace that will never come by partaking of drugs and alcohol. Infact drugs and alcohol as well as pornography will drive that peace away. Please fight to win the battle for your soul by coming unto Christ and turning away from drugs and alcohol. They will take you prisoner and make you a slave. Jesus Christ is the answer. He will restore you to complete spiritual health. He will bring you a high that is far sweeter than any controlled substance will ever offer. COME UNTO CHRIST!!!
