So, I’m a blogger now?
This may come as a surprise to many people…..
I’ve started this blog as a means to share some of the thoughts I have written down during my journey through addiction and spiritual recovery.
Those who know who and what I was might be a little wierded out by the stuff I write here – I used to be a very different person. It’s only through the saving Grace of Jesus that I am where I am now.
I was in active addiction for 25 years of my life. Addicted to drugs, addicted to self-destructive behaviours and addicted to my own ego and self-righteousness.
And, in the lowest possible moment of my life, when everything had imploded, I found Grace. And that was my moment of clarity.
I still don’t follow “religion” of any sort – I think it is destructive and driven by greed and guilt, But, I firmly believe that I now have a genuine relationship with God and through the free gift of Grace, I am finally free.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”Ephesians 2:8-9
I hope you enjoy it.
