Finding Strength

Posted by on Oct 7, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

2 Corinthians 12:9 "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." The Lord showed me something that helped me to understand His word. I was trying to restore our chicken coop running off of my own strength. I grew very weak and was ready to give up. So I asked God what He was trying to show me and He said "Endurance." I asked Him "What about it?" I heard him say, "Strength." I said, "but I have NONE!" He said, "Press into me and I'll meet ALL needs." I finished the chicken coop in 30 minutes. He provided all the strength I needed to do the...

Can Money Buy Happiness?

Posted by on Oct 7, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

Nehemiah 8:10 "This day is sacred to Our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." I've heard people say before that money cannot buy happiness. I disagree. I'm blessed to have a career that pays well, and the money I have earned has allowed me to live comfortably. Even for those of us who lived in the fast-paced life of addiction, money has afforded us some level of happiness (whether it was real or not). What I recently realized is what money cannot buy: everlasting joy. When we invite Jesus to come into our lives, He fills our hearts with unspeakable joy. Knowing that we are a new creation and never have to drink or use drugs again, rejoicing becomes part of our daily routine. Knowing that my past is past and my future is infinite gives me strength to persevere. This kind of joy cannot be taken away by man or by any circumstance we may face. No amount of money can buy this- it truly is...

Jami’s Testimony

Posted by on Oct 3, 2013 in Testimonies | 1 comment

My name is Jami. I am 32, married and I have 3 children. Growing up I was raised in a dysfunctional home where chaos and unhappiness were a part of my life. As a child I was very overweight and unhappy. I had a void in my life which led to doing things I said I would never do. I did not wake up one day as little girl and say, “When I grow up I want to be addicted to drugs.” At the age of 13 I tried pot. It was the beginning of the destruction in my life. At the age of 16 I started doing heavier drugs and it became a part of my life and my character. At the age of 18 I found my true addiction, prescription pain pills. As a result I ended up in jail. In 2009, I came to the South Georgia House of Hope and I left 8 months later, delaying God’s plan for my life. I soon returned to my addiction, still looking for love In 2011 I remarried and kept my addiction a secret. I returned back to the House of Hope in 2012 a very broken, hopeless young lady and full of guilt. God has restored my joy and my marriage that was broken because of my “secrets”. I have been taught how to deal with life’s obstacles without turning to drugs or blaming others for my problems. I now know that my identity is in Christ and nothing else. God has been so merciful and gracious. I will forever be grateful for what He has done in my life. The Lord has restored my relationship with my children and taught me how to treasure and enjoy them. I completed the program in 2013 and God has given me a strong desire to give back to the House of Hope. I love to see a new lady come in and watch God begin to heal brokenness and heal her heart. Thank you, Jesus for loving me and never leaving my side through it all. Thank you for allowing me to share that love with others. My vision...
