One Year Ago Today…

Jul 20, 2017

One year ago today I boarded a plane, flew to Tucson and checked into rehab.  

I can honestly say I was at the lowest point of my life.  I had seemingly lost everything that was dear to me and I was simply out of hope.  

What a difference a year can make!  

I’ve been sober 319 days today.  

The Lord has allowed me to start a business in which I am able to speak and consult with churches all over the US.  

I’m learning more about the grace and mercy of God than I’ve ever learned in my life.  

And I am discovering that although I made some very foolish decisions—the Lord isn’t finished with me.  

My life is still FAR from perfect - and - my circumstances are far from ideal.  There are so many days I battle with feeling like an absolute failure; however, I know as long as there is air in my lungs there is still purpose in my life—and in Christ failure is never final.  

I want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has prayed for and reached out to me in this past year  Your willingness to stand with me in this season has meant more than you know.  Jesus said the world would be able to tell who belongs to Him by the way we love one another (John 13:35) - and the love I’ve felt from so many in this season has kept me going.    

And for those who may be in a valley right now - take it from me - the Lord is so good—even when we are not.  He is with you and will see you through.  If He has brought me this far in a year He can absolutely do it for you.  The reason the enemy wants you to give up is because he knows the Lord will take this season and use it for good - take it from me, Jesus can absolutely redeem anything.
