Before I came to Providence Home, I was to the point of giving up. 25 years, 2 months, 14 days in prison on a life sentence. I hadn’t talked to my family in 25 years. It was my fault for the hurt I caused.
Nobody would take me in – until Providence Home said yes. God and Providence Home saved this sinner’s life. I’ve learned the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. I want to give more of myself to God because of all the loving kindness they give to all the residents here.
When I came to Providence Home, I was homeless; depression and addiction consumed me. I felt weak and powerless. I was on a path of destruction. I lost family relationships, trust, and possessions. I had no motivation and no reason to live. At Providence Home, they directed me to Christ. My new faith in Jesus Christ fills the void in my life, and I’m learning to trust Him with worry. I have learned ways to maintain sobriety, and rekindled family relationships. I am grateful.
When I came to Providence Home, I was homeless and alone. I felt worthless, no good, unable to do anything right. I had nothing to live for. I lost my family, my home, my license, my self-worth. At Providence Home, I have a safe place to deal with the trauma and gain a new purpose. Now, my future looks great, my relationships are growing, and I’m keeping my face on Jesus Christ.
When I came to Providence Home my life was falling apart. I couldn’t think. I just wanted to forget my problems. I lost my family, career, house, and cars. At Providence Home, I can think again. I know more about God and put Him first. I talk to my family, have a job with responsibility, and am getting my driver’s license back.
When I came to Providence Home, my life was a spiral to death and hell. I used to feel like the bottom of the barrel that society could churn up. At one point I lost my soul, conscience, trust, and pride. And every single material thing of value. At Providence Home, I have a new self worth. I am 19 months sober, and I have a whole new set of true friends. I’m in a secure environment with the ability to engage in God’s word daily.
When I came to Providence Home, I was homeless and depressed. I felt empty, worthless, and hopeless. I lost everything – family, life, and job. At Providence Home, I am more confident and enthusiastic about life. I have a steady job and am saving money. I’ve learned I can’t do anything without Jesus!
