    God is so good .He meets us in our deepest need. My issue was not alcohol but depression and even though it took many years to be free I knew He was with me throughout my despair..holding on to me and I Him…

    I can identify with you however in that my father who had been restrained from the home before I was born was an alcoholic.and gambler also. I was one of 10 children..the last born and I know some of what my siblings endured. Also three of my siblings were alcoholics …One became sober 10 years before he died…Just some thoughts….Diane

      Hi Diane
      Thank you for your kind comments, it has been an incredible journey over the last 40 weeks or so, I am so thankful that I was saved before I caused any lasting damage to my kids, luckily Victoria protected them quite well and to be honest I just fell asleep, I wasn’t violent or out of it, I just drank to sleep, if that makes sense.
      The depression is also something I can relate to, I identified that was probably the main reason I was drinking, to make myself feel better, rather than getting depressed over my problems, it became a never ending cycle, but hopefully that’s all behind me now.
      Thank you so much for your kind comments.
      Wayne

        While I’m not proud of that time in my life….you drank to sleep and I ‘medicated’ to do the same…I do believe the scripture that says ‘all things work together for good to those who love God and are ‘called’ according to His purposes’ And he uses people like you and me and others in order I believe to help others feel less alone in their struggles….Diane

    Chills and tears. Wow, God is so good. He knows exactly how to get us to take the very next step. And then the next one. And the next. One step at a time. I’m thanking God for reaching to you, Wayne. Blessings to you and your family. If we could see the whole view from God’s perspective I think we’d fall over from complete shock and worship. He’s using you even while He’s healing you. Doesn’t get any better! Thanks again, Lisa. These stories make me cry and inspire me to seek The Lord more wholeheartedly.
