REAL LIFE STORIES - Chapter 21
DRUGS, ALCOHOL, DEPRESSION, OPRESSION
By: Moses and Sally
Drugs, Alcohol, Depression, Oppression . . . We were stuck in a black hole until . . .
Our names are Moses & Sally. We were married on April 29, 1978. We have one son and two grandchildren. Back in 1980 after being married just a few years, drugs and alcohol took over our lives and we were bound and enslaved by our adversary the devil. Depression and Oppression set in and partying was part of our daily lives.It was like being stuck in a black hole and you canít climb out.
Because of all the problems we dealt with including unfaithfulness and distrust in our marriage, the only way out was to separate and divorce. We never even considered what this was doing to our small child. After trying to work our marriage out on our own to no avail, we found that we needed help. We wanted things to work out for our family and we needed some kind of intervention.
One day we decided it was time for some kind of change and we had relatives who were praying for us and out of the blue they invited us to church. We decided to take them up on it because we felt it wouldnít hurt!
So we walked into a small church in the city we lived in and we had an encounter with almighty God!
We were so overwhelmed with Godís love and we accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into our hearts that day. The awesome miracle besides Salvation is that God not only forgave our sins, He delivered us instantly (with no withdrawals) from all our addictions! And we were able to forgive each other. God brought back the love we thought we had lost for one another and made it stronger. He put a new song in our hearts!
We believe that every marriage has a call from God. We also know that if Satan can mess up a marriage, he can destroy the family. We came to understand that without God we can do nothing. We are so thankful for his Amazing Grace!
