Jesus Did It!
By: William Donaldson
I spent the better part of my life sick with depression, sadness, loneliness, and drug and alcohol addictions. As with most of the people like me, I felt alone. It turns out the national and worldwide numbers are staggering, and fewer than 25% of the people have access to suitable help.
Growing up as an 80's child, in my teens and early
20's, I was part of a transformational culture, between the 60's and 70's
drug generation and the 90's and 2000 educational generation, due to
During my high school years, in the early 80's, I began using drugs and alcohol. After heavy peer pressure, I finally gave in and began marijuana and alcohol use - the gateway products - which then led to a serious and most dangerous drug called methamphetamine (meth, crank, crystal) in the mid 80's and early 90's.
After years of abusing this drug, I overdosed. As a result I had paranoid experiences, depression, sadness, and indescribable FEAR. After several episodes, in 1993, I had the last one I could stand. I remember looking into the mirror at a skeleton wrapped in flesh and speaking the words, "I HAVE HAD ENOUGH". That was the last time I ever touched meth. I never sought counseling or any type of programs whatsoever. However, I continued abusing alcohol and marijuana.
In an attempt to rejoin the population, I went to
Trade school and earned a Master Electricians certificate.
As it became inconvenient, due to drug
screenings, I tailored off the marijuana use.
then the alcohol took center stage, as it was considered legal and socially
After years of nearly fatal vehicle
accidents, driving while intoxicated, somehow without much social detection,
also many very embarrassing drunken moments (you know what I mean, if you've
also abused alcohol).
An estimated 2.5 million people lose their
lives annually to this sickness.
In the mid 2000's I slowed down and
eventually stopped drinking and marijuana usage was at a minimum, again
somehow without any type of known help.
In late 2008 I was injured at work by a loud
deafening medical condition called Tinnitus, which became worse after a
popular anti-depressant medication side-affect caused further damage,
leaving me with a loud ringing noise in my head 24 hours a day, 7 days a
Then the pharmaceutical medications
started, and once again I found myself addicted.
Now I was unable to continue working in the
field of Electrical construction, which was my saving grace, or so I
By doctors orders I was considered disabled
and promptly medicated to prevent insanity.
Then one day in 2011, after giving up and waiting
to die from an incurable illness, thick depression, and mind altering
medications, I was touched - or I had a feeling - some type of awa
Christ began restoring my health, educating and counseling me. He also provided good company, so as to soothe my loneliness and depression. He got me into a Spirit filled, bible teaching church, as to help with my social anxiety issues, and educating me on why the addictions happened and how they stopped (Romans 4:17) Ö calling things that are not, as though they were. Like looking into a mirror and speaking a 12 year meth addiction away, immediately! Or an even longer alcohol addiction just from seeing the affects it had on people. Yes, I worked security at a nightclub and just by watching peoples actions and thought, wow, that's me.
Or just stopping a 30 year addiction of marijuana abuse, completely for understandings sake: It's only masking the issues you have and when it wears off, so will the fake happiness it brought you.
You see, Christ is all about the truth (John 8:32) and the truth will set you free, not covered up, but a true free! Depression and addiction are just plain bondage, like having chains wrapped around you. Believing the lies of the world are how you get chained. Believing Christ's truths will set you free, not a masked free, but a real free. In a sense He was like reintroducing me to my adult self, which I hadn't seen since I was a teen.
As I write this, I am still afflicted with chronic Tinnitus, and medicated, but I now have hope. Physicians can't fix my condition, but the Great Physician assures me that Tinnitus' days are numbered along with meds and their harmful side affects.
Don't waste time with blame, anger, or finger pointing, because the fingers being pointed may end up being at you. God says "I make peace, I create evil". (Isaiah 45:7). I never understood that until I grew as a Christian. We were created with freewill, so we also have the ability to make peace, or create evil. There is always an opposite to everything, like the 10 commandments. Did you know they were given to us so we would know right from wrong, until Christ came and liberated us from sin or wrong. When He was sent to the cross, He made us right.
So I've found that Christianity is pretty much a lifestyle based on our belief. Also, a quality of life as opposed to the worldly quality of life that often leads to alcohol and drug addiction, which in turn causes the sicknesses we live in. The main reason Christ came into this world is so all God's children should be saved and reunited with Him in Heaven, for eternity, by repenting your sins, proclaiming that Christ is the Son of God ,and you can begin your newly reborn, refreshed life, simply by saying "JESUS HELP ME." (See: Romans 10:13)

A Special Message: http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HelpingShareTheMessageOfTheCross.htm
Dear Reader - are you at peace with God? If not, you can be. Do you know what awaits you when you die? You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain. Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!). Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God? We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.
To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God. What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one. Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
