Hey guys! I've been on here for a while now, not sure how long. I wa saved January 9, 2008 and my faith has grown very strong in the last three years. I devour the Word, worship and pray diligently. I've just always felt there was a barrier between me and God. Months ago I started praying about it and knew it was alcohol. I was drinking too much, sometimes to drunkenness. I don't believe it has been a problem until now. I have been happily married for 27 years, had the same job for 22 years and live a very stable life. I was only drinking after work and on weekends but know it was becomming between me and God. Saturday morning I laid it at His feet. I told Him I would do all that I could do if only he would strengthen me. We (wife & I) fasted and prayed for 48 hours over the weekend and now....I AM NO LONGER UNDER THE BONDAGE OF ALCOHOL!! PRAISE GOD FOR HIS GRACE. PRAISE GOD FOR HIS UNENDING LOVE. Thank Gerald May for his book "Addiction and Grace". I know I'm just tooting my own horn but I feel so free!!
