Transcript

It was my life. I lived it. I loved it. I was 23. You can’t blame a girl for having fun. Don’t get me wrong, I was in church every Sunday. Sang the same songs you sing. Read the same bible you read. My head was in the right place but my heart had different ideas. I was called to the front line of this battle from an early age. I had no traumatic experience that pushed me anywhere. What I had was a choice. And I chose. See, when you let sin in it never wants to leave and when the devil asks for an inch what he actually means is a mile. He seduces you (shhh) and sucks you in… God is a forgiving God… tells you exactly what you want to hear and after listening to him over and over and over. Full of grace and mercy… He’s all you can hear. He’ll take you back.

I never knew it would end this way. Just one last time… I never knew it would end so quickly. One minute I was staring into the head lights of a truck and the next I was at his feet. I told Him, I told Him, I told Him, I wanted to do what is right, I wanted to do what is right, but I just didn’t have the strength …or maybe I did….but I couldn’t, I couldn’t admit it……because when you admit it, the guilt becomes unbearable….but I wanted to do what was right but it was my life. I lived it. I loved it but I regret it.

Not all stories have a happy end. Now I find myself in this place of darkness, of nothingness. The only thing I hear now are my mistakes. Every time God reached out to me and I turned my back. This place of emptiness. This place of darkness.
