Just over ten years ago I was trapped in the throes of heroin addiction. As is the nature of addiction, my life was filled with disorder of every sort: selfish living, frequent stealing, compulsive lying, and constant manipulating. I was in utter darkness.
But God. God was overwhelmingly good to me, and he delivered me from the domain of darkness and transferred me into the kingdom of his beloved Son (Colossians 1:13). It is pure grace that I can rejoice in sobriety now because the chains of my addiction took divine power to break.
