🍴You Gave John A Meal; He Found Hope

John gave God control and now he's back in the driver's seat

John’s foray into drug use began at the age of 15 when he was “lacing blunts” with cocaine. Over time the addiction grew and by his adult years he was spending his entire paycheck on crack.

“I didn’t even eat,” he said. “I’d get paid and by the next day I was slap broke. I was chasing an image beyond foolishness. I mean, there’s no words for it, I was just a dead person.”
His addiction consumed him and he believes his prayer for relief actually came in the form of incarceration. An eventual robbery and assault conviction left John facing a reduced sentence of 50 years, even though the full weight of the law could have ushered in life behind bars.
