SAVED FROM DISTRACTION AND ADDICTIONS
My name is Melanie Achieng. I was born and raised in the church but along the way I drifted away. I became rebellious and hard-headed. I was introduced to drugs and day clubs while in primary school. When I went to high school, I started doing all sorts of drugs, chavis, kuber, pills, cigarettes, drunk spirits and smoked bhang. Drug addiction got worse that I started making my own alcoholic drinks (codeine).I became well known for my heavy smoking among my peers and on social media. I battled depression, anxiety, insecurities, anger, sadness which made me depend on drugs more. I felt lonely though I had people around me. I started selling bhang at home and in school. This led me to have low self-esteem and degrade my capabilities. I became suicidal and my relationship with my parents became terrible. I became an aggressive and a defensive person.
Two years after finishing school, I started coming to the church again still under the influence of drugs. One day, I made a sincere prayer for God to help me stop abusing drugs, though it was not easy.The hardest part was letting go of the past, all the pain, grudges and sadness that was inside me. Through the help of the Holy Spirit, I was able to forgive. Now I am no longer dependant on drugs, neither depressed, no more anger issues, nor rebellious and I use my influence in the right way. I’m free from suicidal thoughts because I understood that life is worth living. My life changed when I decided to obey the voice of God and put in practice what I was taught in the church.
THANK YOU JESUS. I AM UNIVERSAL.
