About 7 months ago, I lost a good friend. I lied to him about some things and when he found out, he didn't want anything to do with me anymore; he walked out on me. Because of this, I turned to alcohol for comfort to get over everything. It didn't help. I also attempted suicide several times by cutting myself but it didn't work, either. I felt like all hope was gone and no one could save me. I felt so alone in the world. One day I was driving home from school thinking of everything and crying my eyes out. When I was driving, 2 songs played back to back on Air1. First it was 'You Are More' by 10th Avenue North but I was still crying. Then, 'Remind Me Who I Am' by Jason Gray came on and that's when it hit me. All this time of drinking and attempting suicide, I had let God out of my life. I pulled into my driveway and prayed hard for God to forgive me for what I had become and for what I had done. I am now starting my life over with better friends, getting rid of old friends that have led me down this path of bad decisions, and the most important is letting God back in to be able to work His unfailing grace and mercy in my life again. He’s making my life better. I AM SAVED!
