Bondages broken, health restored, relationships mended and much more… Let these true stories of God’s grace made real bring you hope.
Last year, my husband and I decided to put up our house for sale to buy a bigger one as our family had grown. At the time, the housing market was still stable, and we expected to sell it quickly. But the days dragged into weeks, and we didn’t have an offer. It was a very exhausting and frustrating time for me as I have little children and cleaning the house for every viewing was tiring.
I had been struggling with depression, addiction, and fear since young. Though I am a believer, I was taught a mixture of law and grace. No matter how hard I tried to obey God’s commandments, I would fail again and again. I felt disqualified as a Christian. All the wrong beliefs also affected my marriage.
I was a very hardcore drug user and was addicted to crack cocaine for more than 25 years. I spent at least $250,000 on this drug and was imprisoned three times because of my addiction. I felt hopeless and trapped in guilt and shame, thinking that it was my destiny to remain like that.
Pastor Prince, your book Live the Let-Go Life was given to me by a dear friend. At that time, I was in a hard place after leaving my job of 13 years. I was in a place of hurt, disbelief, and anger. But I knew that as long as I had the Lord and my husband by my side while I searched for a new job, I’d be fine.
