Teens: Drugs or God

I was ruled by drugs for four, long, miserable years. Like any typical teen, I craved to be popular among my peers. I did not have the Holy Spirit to guide and help me make the right godly choices at the age of fourteen. I chose the path of drugs because I thought it was cool to be high every waking hour. I desperately wanted to fit in.

My drug habit became so addictive that my mind and body needed the marijuana fix just so I could function “normally” through my young life. Yeah, at first it was mind-numbing, and felt good to be high off the many joints we would smoke during a “session.” As time wore, on the habit became a burden, and it was not fun anymore. When you come to a point in any drug addiction that it consumes your thinking 24 hours a day, you really are in trouble. Our (mine, my brother’s, and our friend’s) addiction brought us to a low level in life; we broke into a house and stole fifty dollars and a hand gun to purchase our “product.” Tell--me is that pathetic or what?

My drug usage took a toll on me physically and mentally. I became lethargic about high school, sports, reading, and all the things I cared about before I started my drug odyssey. Right when I hit the lowest point I did not find enjoyment in life or getting high anymore. No, I was not suicidal-- I just didn’t care about anything anymore

Then in my drug--hazed fog, Jesus intervened and told me He was the answer to life, and He could deliver me from the pot addiction. (I tried to quit on my own and I could not do it.) I became born-again and that very night Jesus delivered me from my drug bondage, and He cleansed me from all my sin. It took the supernatural love of Jesus Christ to set me free from my drug habit. Jesus was the only way I would ever stop smoking marijuana. It will be thirty-eight years this coming September, 2014 since Jesus became my Savior and released me from drugs.

Sadly-- I found out about a childhood friend who died two years ago; unfortunately he never stopped taking drugs and he did not know Jesus. Young people--give your temple over to God and walk with Him. Do not subject yourself to the fleeting pleasure of using drugs; in the long run it will cost you too much!

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. I Corinthians 3:16-17. So who does your temple belong to?



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
