The thing is, the Lord had his hand on my life. My dad remarried and as a result, my life slowly began to turn around.
I would spend almost the whole year in treatment when I was a in tenth grade. I went to Alateen and learned how to express my feelings and began to understand that it wasn't my fault that my mom committed suicide.
In my twenties and early thirties, I still struggled with my temper. In my late thirties, I got involved in the pro-life movement. They stressed that it was important to read the Bible every day. The Bible schedule did more for me than any psychiatrist could do because I was showing the Lord that I wanted to keep him first in my life.
My mom decided she couldn't take it anymore because she believed I was turning into a delinquent. She scrimped and saved so she could buy me a set of dinnerware that was suppose to be my future wedding present.
She insisted that I attend a Christian school., and I think it paid off in the long run, even if I'm not be the smartest person in the world. It saddens me that I may never be a husband or father. If she were still alive, she would learn that I am not the bad person she thought I would be when she committed suicide. I still have my character flaws, but I want to live my life for the Lord and to serve him. When you're at the end of your rope you need to reach out to Jesus and trust him to get you through.
