Glimmer of Hope
Kelley Good – Freedom House Adult & Teen Challenge
My life began in a dark place. I was raised by a father who was miserable and struggled with depression. I found him dead when I was 18. I remember thinking that if God really loved me, then why would he let this happen to me. I spiraled into a variety of drug addictions, but when I was introduced to meth, my life really got bad. I clung to violent and abusive relationships that I knew were no good for me. I allowed this to happen time after time. After one ex-boyfriend beat my son, I found myself in a jail cell, where I was told I would never again see the light of day. Although I wasn't involved in church, I hit my knees in jail, and I prayed to God that if you see something better for me if I am ever going to be a better mom for this child, then get me out of here. But if you don't, then send me to prison. A week later, I was out. Adult & Teen Challenge picked me up from that jail, and from that moment on, my life changed. When I entered the doors of Freedom House, I stopped craving cigarettes and drugs! I learned about God's grace and that I wasn't condemned by my past mistakes. I will never forget the freedom that I found after releasing unforgiveness in my life. I now know that God loves me and will always be there for me. Life is a gift; I look forward to being the mother to my sons that He intended me to be!
