Letitia M: Love Beyond Measure Brings Peace of Mind

Letitia M:   Love Brings Peace of MindLetitia

For the last 20 years, drugs were an important part of my life.  I had no control, and I had lost my identity.  The things that were once important to me, soon became obsolete.  During my addiction, I lived two lives.  I was “Ms. Had it all Together” when I was around my family, and when I went out into the night, I became an unbearable monster.  I worked hard wearing my mask; hoping my family, and friends of the family would not see what was underneath the mask.  Today, I have no need to wear a mask.  I have surrendered my will to God, and I am transparent, honest and open-minded.

Since being at Gilgal, I have remained clean and sober, secured a full-time job at the airport, gotten a checking and savings account, paid off outstanding debt and even passed my driving test to get my driver’s license reinstated!

But beyond that I am blessed with the ability to have peace of mind for the first time in my life.  I have learned at Gilgal to renounce my false beliefs and take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.  I have truly been transformed by the renewing of my mind and I owe it all to my Lord and Savior.

I have also learned to love others as I love myself.  My light (which is His light in me) shines bright now and I smile because I am full of His joy.  I continue to grow deeper in my intimacy with Him every day.  I am truly grateful for all that He has done for me and I love Him so very much.
