I asked Jesus into my life; He accepted and I haven't regretted it a single day
I used to drink 18 beers a night, trying to escape reality and trying to find answers to life’s
problems. It got to a point where even 18 beers a night wasn’t helping and I felt like I was
bottomed out, so I attempted suicide. When I came home from the hospital the next morning,
I started to reevaluate everything – even religion. I started thinking and remembered a verse
about burdens and another about a wide road. I picked up my bible for the first time in years
and searched for the passages I thought I remembered. Then I found them in Matthew 7:14
and in Matthew 11:28 – 30. When I read Matthew 11:28-30 I started to cry and I
realized that I needed Jesus in my life. So I got on my knees right then and there and
prayed to the Lord to accept me, a poor, miserable sinner, as His child, and I accepted Him
as my personal Lord and Savior and asked Him to come into my life and show me the way to the
narrow gate described in Matthew 7.
My life has turned 180 degrees since that day and I know that I owe it all to my Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ.
If you are in pain like I was and you've tried everything to escape it - alcohol, drugs,
whatever - and haven't been able to, I urge you to do as I did and accept Jesus as your personal
Lord and Savior. If you say already have but you still feel the need for alcohol or drugs
then you havenn't really given yourself over to Him. DO IT NOW! I promise that you
will never know true peace or happiness until you do it - and until you MEAN IT.
