I never knew love could be so healing until Gilgal showed me. I came directly from jail as part of a requirement from drug court. Initially I thought my addiction to meth was the problem. However, after I began working the program, I realized that there was a deeper healing that needed to take place in me in order to overcome my old destructive cycles.
In our weekly Be Transformed classes and through counseling, I learned some of the many false beliefs I had about God, myself and others. All of these thinking errors kept me living in defeat. Once I learned the truth about who God is and who I am in Him, my whole perspective changed. I was able for the first time to receive unconditional love from Him and others and to truly love myself.
The Gilgal program is amazing. I feel like if I would have gone somewhere else I would not have made it because I would not have found Jesus. I wouldn’t of healed. Other programs don’t give you time to work on yourself. Thank you Gilgal for the love beyond measure that healed me from the inside out.
I look forward to my new life beyond graduation! Change really does happen at Gilgal. Thank you to everyone who was an integral part of my transformation this past year!
