“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
Maybe you can relate. Blanca had a father who was never around. He was heavily involved in drugs, alcohol and gang activity. Worse yet, Blanca lived with an abusive stepfather.
So as she was growing up, she used relationships to fill her pain and emptiness.
But then God used a local church play to speak to Blanca. She said, “Throughout the entire play, God showed me how He wanted me to change the way I was living.”
And change she did!
She decided to give Christ everything! a decision she’s never since regretted.
And in the process, God healed her deep emotional wounds.
Today, she tells young people all over the world what God has done.
Friend, God can, and will, use your past. Even the brokenness of an abusive childhood.
Ask Him to use you in someone’s life today.
I left my old life behind and never looked back. I decided that I was going to give God everything and that was a decision that I have never regretted to this day.
