"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him." -- 1 Corinthians 2:9
I was extremely insecure as a young teenager and used alcohol and drugs to enable me to be social at just about any event. If I let myself, I can still clearly see the pain my bad decisions produced. And I cry. I'm so grateful for Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, for the blood that has washed those terrible things away, and the grace that allows me to start fresh every day.
