Store Front Salvation

In the October 2004, I tried to overdose.  It was the worse time of my life.  I'm still affected by that attempted suicide. 

I was so alone - my son wasn't talking to me, I had just lost the man I loved, the love of my life. I had no friends at that time - I had stopped dopping & drinking.  All my old friends were mostly just partying pals.  I had lost touch with other friends & the rest were too far away.  I didn't have a place to live.  I didn't have a job.  I stayed in a shelter for a very brief time then, & there I met a woman who led me to Jesus in an indirect way.

She told me of a place located downtown where you could go in to have people pray for you.  A "Healing Room". 

Months later, I found myself walking into that Healing Room.  Destitute.   A lost soul.  Alone & still very much suicidal, to say the least.  The gentle souls at the healing room accepted me.  They talked to me, & prayed for me as well as with me.  They truly made me feel loved & taught me about a new Jesus, one who loves me. 

It was the beginning of my new life with Jesus.  I accepted Jesus right then & there that day! 

I learned so much from those wonderful, loving, kind & generous Christians.  It was Jesus who was the wind in my sails that day.  He brought me to the "Healing Room" for my personal redemption/salvation. 

I will never forget that day for as long as I live!

The more I went back the better I got.  Of course, I see it a lot more now in hindsight. 

I'm very grateful for Jesus' eternal love & guidance. 

I am also very grateful for all of his earth angels.  God Bless them!

God Bless you all!

Those are wonderful things you say. Thank you and God Bless you!

I am so glad you are getting well and healing. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem and once the deed is done there is no going back. Even in my darkest days I look for some form of happiness or joy. I have children and pets and they make me smile in spite of myself. I too am thankful you found a reason to live. God Bless you and keep you.
