The Struggle is Real, but So is Jesus
This book is based on my life story from being adopted into a wonderful unconditional loving family to being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and eventually into a life of drugs and alcohol, running away, theft, deceit, adultery, and prostitution—becoming a very selfish and abusive person to those who tried so hard to love me and breaking lots of hearts.
I struggled with this lifestyle I chose for fifty years without getting myself hurt or incarcerated; but in the end, I paid the most ultimate price for my sins, and I was then finally ready to let Jesus take over. It's been two and half years since the tragedy that had me try to take my own life got somehow intervened. I found a church and got sober and baptized.
I have received miracle after miracle since I turned my life over to God and decided to do it His way.
No matter who you are or what you have done, Jesus is real and is just waiting for you to invite Him in and start something beautiful in your life. It is never too late.
This book is completely anonymous to protect the names of those involved in my world of sin.
God compelled me to write this in hopes that I may plant a seed and hopefully even show one person who lived a life like mine that you are loved, you are worthy, and you can have a life beyond your wildest dreams if you decide to love and follow Jesus.
He has given me so many riches, not the kind money can buy, the kind that can only be given to you by the Lord.
Everything I write in here is true and not fabricated; it's all real, Jesus is real. Just say His name, and He will come.
I hope this book touches your life like it has mine and you can have a life full of love and laughter, no more pain or fear.
The miracles are still happening, so many, so quick I could have written another four chapters since I finished. It has just blown me away, and I hope it does for you too. You're never too old, and it's never too late.
God bless you all.
