With no spiritual foundation, when my parents divorced my perfect world came crashing down. Instead of sitting in a classroom and graduating with my classmates, I was sitting in jail with no way for me to get out. A month later I entered the restoration program at Alabama Teen Challenge. Recently my father asked me if I was worried about my looming legal issues. I told him that God has something planned for me and that I had a peace inside of me that I knew was from God. A few days later I learned that my charges had been dropped. In two months I managed to destroy my life, but in one day God had restored it. One of my favorite verses is Psalms 5:12-“For surely, Lord you bless the righteous, you encompass them with your favor as with a shield.” I know as long as I do what is morally right, the Lord’s favor will always surround me.
