This is my testimony on how I became reconnected to the family of God. I started a long time ago being disconnected and it took a long time of disobedience to God. At one time I was living for the Lord the next thing I knew I was living for the enemy and by that time was living for myself, to me it felt like the right thing to do, but it didn’t take long to see I was on the wrong track, I had gotten side tracked. I had chance after chance to straighten out but I continued to fail. I thank God for my mother’s prayers for grace over my life and believe me God gave me a lot of grace. One night about 7 months ago I was up all night doing drugs and had spent a lot of money trying to fill the void in my heart, I was so down because I had really messed up, this is when God started dealing with me, I began to pray and plead with God, I felt God told to begin to walk, so I started walking and God was dealing with me about things in my life. I was walking down 231 crying because of my shame and hurt that I felt inside. I begged God for a ride because I had walked so long my whole body was hurting, I realized that my problems had problems and I needed help, so I kept walking until I couldn’t walk no more. I know that God was looking down on me and there came car and it passed me and then turned back around, a guy picked me up and he brought me to the Panama City Rescue Mission, I entered the Men’s Recovery Program and my whole life changed, the way that I saw things began to change. God used this staff to help me reconnect with Him, and this has saved my life, I now have a new hope in Christ for my future. God has given me a beautiful Church family and my mother is so proud of me. I thank God for the Men’s Recovery Program at the Panama City Rescue Mission, with God’s help my life has been transformed and now I can give back to others in Panama City and my community by letting God use me to help someone else.
