Tell Somebody

“And you shall tell your son in that day, saying ‘This is done because of what the Lord did for me when I came up from Egypt.'”  Exodus 13:8

I was addicted to drugs and alcohol and life was very painful to me.  I overdosed twice, on purpose.  And then came Jesus!  He took away my desire for self-destructive addictions and gave me a new life to joyously live for Him.

Thank You, Lord, for all You have done for me.  Please help me tell someone today!  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Up From Egypt

I have been in bondage
alone in deep despair
but because of what He did for me
I am no longer there.
For with a strong hand
and at a heavy price
He has brought me out
by being my sacrifice.

Do you have a remarkable story of His saving grace that you’d like to share with us?
