Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I fell.

I feel peace in my soul, and I am at a time where normally I would be in total chaos. I recognize my Savior and His love and caring. He is carrying my through a very difficult time, but it is not like other difficult times. I see the light at the end of the tunnel, and He is even showing me how I will learn from this. At a crucial time of relapse, He provided me with a way out, and with many loving brothers and two professional therapists to help me learn from this, make sense of it, and use Jesus to pull myself out.

Now I am at peace. I glory in my Jesus who has redeemed my soul from hell.

I know justjohn holds the title for the relapse poster child, but he may need to relinquish it.

That’s all.


What have you learned from this?

"And yet you are already turning to your Savior. We are all fallen and wicked people. Your faith speaks louder to me right now than your mistakes do."

"Don’t live your life in despair, feeling sorry for yourself because of the mistakes you have made. Let the sunshine in by doing the right things—now. It may be difficult to begin, but pick up the scriptures and immerse yourself in them. Look for favorite passages. Lean on the Master’s teachings, on His servants’ testimonies. Refresh your parched soul with the word of God. The scriptures will give you comfort and the strength to overcome. "
