I started tag bangin and doing drugs when i was in high school. when i hit 19 the devil revealed himself to me literally. I started to hear voices and thoughts would come into my head about killing people. to drink their blood and cut them up and eat them.WOW right. when a demon put a thought in my head to kill my own mother thats where he went too far. I absolutely adore my mother. she is my hero. so right then i seeked help from grandmother. she gave me a book of prayers and i came upon the sinners prayer and as soon as i finished reading it aloud, I fell to the ground and i could not move, i felt freedom for the first time in years. my first couple years were very rocky as i expected. i would do good for a couple months then fall back into addiction. one day i couldn’t find weed, so i did some meth cuz the devil made me feel like their was no more hope for me and i fell deep into the tweakers lifestyle. but while i was spun out on the streets i was preaching the gospel, cuz God had been rooted deep into me and my spirit man kept coming out of me. this is how i knew for sure i was a born again christian. i overdosed three times in my first 4 years as a christian. after my last overdose I started drinking really heavily like 2 fifths a day and 5 or 6 40 oz. one day i started shedding tears for no reason while i was getting drunk. the final straw was when i got caught slippin in a rival gangbangers alley and they cut my face open to the bone with a sharp glass. Once i was clean the enemy came at me with the sin of lust, and I gave up my walk with God to live in with my gf. i was living in sin, but God convicted me and i repented 2 years ago. Now ive been clean and sober for 7 years since 1-25-2005 and im active in leadership in a recovery group on friday nights, and im feeding homeless 5 days a week in the park, telling the addicts and the demon oppressed there is freedom in Jesus Christ rom. 6:1-6.
