I enjoyed reading the story about John Roberts written by Mike Paradise.
The link is www.harnessillinois.com/node/613
It says Roberts has found God and has had a profound life change through his fiancee, Crissy, and his family, who have stood by him in his battle to overcome alcohol addiction. He says he has now been 11 months sober.
John, if you read this, I wish you well, and I want you to know it CAN be done! For two decades in the 1970s & 80s I nearly destroyed myself by consuming a quart of bourbon a day, leading to a couple of DUI's, jail time, loss of job and career. Yet, in spite of all this, I still was literally incapable of stopping on my own.
But through my best friend, who had the patience of a saint, I also "found God," and because of my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, He completely removed all my physical craving for alcohol, restored my job and career and has continually and richly blessed my life in more ways than I could ever recount!
God did what all the king's horses and all the king's men could never do...he put this Humpty Dumpty back together again.
Ironically, tonight is the 21-year anniversary of my final drink of alcohol, taken on Jan. 31, 1990. I am living proof that miracles CAN and DO happen if you invite the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart to be your Lord and Savior....."For nothing is impossible for God." (Luke 1:37)
John, I pray you will keep your eyes fixed on God, and experience all of the truly countless blessings God has planned for you and your family!
