Darrell


“I determined that I believed a lot of things that were not true and this is almost always the source of my pain, believing in things that are not true! That realization was highlighted by the fact that my drug and alcohol use had really started to produce a lot of negative consequences. It became clear that I was going to lose everything of value in my life, and that I needed the help of God. The problem is, there are a lot of strange and false beliefs all throughout the world. I didn’t want to believe in anything that was not true. My search for spirituality was based on one simple question: is this true or not? I have a real strong attraction to apologetics, which is to say proof and evidence of God and the Bible! Is there reason to believe? YES! Once I determined the Bible is a trustworthy historical collection of documents that are divine rather than human in origin, I instantly wanted to know as much as I could about its contents. When I started reading the Bible, I remember having such an emotional reaction. Every time I read that Jesus had compassion on lost people I would almost tear up. Instead of being indigent that they were not following the law of Moses, He had compassion on them. Seeing that in Jesus was so attractive to me. It was the bases on which I started to trust Him. I’m a very empathetic person. I can relate to people at a deep level. Which is also a big reason why today I work so much with people that are struggling with addiction, co-dependency, anxiety, depression, all the things that bring people to Celebrate Recovery. By the grace of God, I’ve been clean and sober since January 24, 1990. Today, my relationship with Christ is the primary relationship in my life. It’s the relationship that every other relationship is built on. My advice to people is to simply seek the truth, Ask God to prevent you from believing anything that is NOT true, and to give you wisdom and discernment to find what is true. There are so many things that we believe, things we accept, that simply are not true. The Bible says: ‘For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.,’ Hebrews 4:12. My name is Darrell and I surrender.”
