Testimonies and Congratulations
I’m Megan from Pascagoula MS, and I’m 20 years old. I’m from a broken home; my dad was an alcoholic who wasn’t very present. My mother brought me to church, when I didn’t go with her, my grandfather took me. When I was 13, he died and it crushed me. Heartbroken and angry, I started becoming rebellious by smoking cigarettes, going to parties, and getting involved with the wrong crowd.
I was molested at 15. I was so confused I started unravelling. I slept around to fill the emptiness. After graduation, I met my worst nightmare.
He lured me with charm and deceit. I started smoking spice with him and gave up college to raise his child. Things went from bad to worse. I found out he’d been doing meth without my knowledge. He said I lied to him and began abusing me, which continued through our relationship.
Despite his abuse, I married him. He introduced me to meth. It numbed me. Our addiction got so bad we were homeless 3 times. I had gotten down to 90 pounds. I was so lost I didn’t know who I was. I woke to him cheating on me in our own home. That’s when I cried out to God.
The day after I prayed, I left my husband and God got me to Teen Challenge. Since T C, God’s restored my relationship with my mom, my broken heart, and my broken mind. He is teaching me to lean not on my own understanding, but to trust in Him. I’m forgiving; I can’t hold anyone’s sins against them if God doesn’t hold mine against me. Jesus fills the emptiness from sexual abuse. My Maker is my husband; the Lord Almighty is His name. He’s called me and wiped away every tear.
I hope to continue serving the Lord in whatever way I can. I want to go to school for Education. I know God is calling me to get involved with my local church and maybe start recovery meetings. I give God all the glory for where I am and where I’m going, if it hadn’t been for His unfailing love I would have never made it this far.
So I stand on Joel 2:13, Let your heart be broken and come back to the Lord your God, because He is kind and shows mercy.
Congratulations, Bridget & Vera!
