HUMANS OF SURRENDER
LATEST STORIES

Brett

“I almost overdosed on bourbon when I was 2 years old. I crawled out of my crib and drank my dad’s drink. My parents were fighting in the other room. I’m an alcoholic. My family believed in Jesus, but didn’t follow Him. I recently realized my entire life has been filled with lies. I’m 45 years old. Like many, I was taught to chase worldly things; money, sex, alcohol, drugs, entertainment, food, family, careers, etc. I always felt like I was chasing the wind, it was just out of reach. I was not taught the greatest commandment of all, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment" Matthew 22:37-38. I was taught to love everything else, but God. It wasn’t until I lost my family, money, and my mind that I realized what a terrible mistake that I had made. Back in 2010, God spoke to me and told me there wasn’t going to be a next time. That was the first time that I realized how truly broken I was. I stopped blaming the world for my problems and surrendered my will over to God’s will, begging Him for forgiveness. Despite my sinful ugliness, God still loved me. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" John 3:16. My advice to people is to stop putting God second. Try to put God first in everything you do. Make Jesus your role model instead of the world, your life depends on it! My name is Brett and I surrender.”
