This morning a thirty-eight year old man got up and went to work. This is the same thing he has done for the past twelve months.
What makes this good news is that one year ago he was routinely sticking a needle in his arm, addicted to heroin. But he made a decision to turn his life around and make a different life for himself.
Growing up he never had the example of a father who was hard working and responsible. In fact, he never knew his father. And it was his mother who first introduced him to drugs when she gave him marijuana to smoke at age eleven.
He grew up with nothing.
Today he has his own apartment and is paying his bills.
With God in his life, he has found a peace he never knew existed.
That’s good news!
