I was smoking marijuana every day for almost eight years. I smoked from the moment I woke up and continued throughout the day till the night. It was an expensive habit that cost me up to $300 a month.
I would watch Joseph Prince while I smoked and even praise God while my blunt was lit. I knew I wanted to stop smoking but I wasn’t sure if I was ready to quit. I was so used to the habit. What will I do if I stopped? How will I eat or sleep because I was dependent on weed to do these things?
I called Joseph Prince Ministries for prayer and also wrote in asking God to take away my desire to smoke marijuana. After I prayed, I threw my sac in the toilet and thought that was it. Well, that didn’t last at all. The same day I bought more. I continued smoking for several more months until one day I just didn’t want it anymore. I still can’t believe it, but I really didn’t want it anymore!
Now I fill my time with what has always brought me joy—dancing, singing, and, of course, praising my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I spend a lot more time with my kids since I’m not hiding in my room smoking. And I have so much more energy. The best part is that I feel true joy inside!
Please, if you’re reading this, do not give up! Your day will come. God delivers. Not in our time but His. Thank You, Jesus, for setting me FREE!
