In his possess words, Jason Williams, Canadian County jail inmate
Hello, my name is Jason Williams and a following is my testimony: At a immature age my usually impulse came from my Grandma Bertie. She believed in Jesus and lived for God daily. we frequency ever got to spend most time with her before she upheld divided in 1995. My childhood was full of hatred on my father’s part.
Drugs and ethanol have always been in my life. we had to declare abuse as a child and never had a good purpose model. It led me to use drugs during a immature age. Growing adult with divorced relatives was tough though it was improved than when they were married. When we was immature and vital with my mother, we met a crony named David Clark. He was my best friend. He was a initial chairman to entice me to church.
Although my mom went to church a small while she was perplexing to get divided from my dad, we never connected with God. When we went to church with my crony we got saved and felt God in my life. we enjoyed it for a integrate of years. we was age 10 to 12, though we started experimenting with weed and we fell divided from Christ. we got into drugs and celebration a lot as a teen and even attempted meth.
I wanted to have fun and to get high. Everything went downhill solemnly though downhill nothing a less. we got into difficulty with a cops, finished adult in encourage homes and foot camp. When we was 16 we got out of my second encourage home and went home, though before prolonged we was behind on drugs.
When we was 17 we had my initial child. A pleasing baby boy, Christopher Lee Williams, that upheld divided during one month and 4 days old. we mislaid myself. we felt God hated me and His punishment was to take my son away. we blamed God and got strung out on meth.
I had no wish of vital a good life. The life of drugs and impiety became my life style. we after had some-more kids, dual boys and a girl. we was still regulating drugs and we had run details with DHS and eventually we quit meth and that life style.
I finished adult in county jail in El Reno, Oklahoma, for possession with vigilant to discharge confronting 10 years in prison. Well, we picked adult a Bible and spent 4 months reading and studying. Then OJPM Chaplain Rodney French led me behind to Jesus. It felt so great. we was perplexing to live a improved life, a Christian life. we connected out of jail and went to church each Wednesday and Sunday. we was operative with a Christian man, Charles Miller. we was even attending Celebrate Recovery.
I could not keep my counsel due to miss of income and finished adult with a warrant. Not wanting to go behind to jail and prison, we went on a run. we started offered drugs and never stayed in one place too long. Through all this we still felt a job to go behind to church. Every church we saw we wanted to travel in and urge for redemption though being on drugs we could not move myself to do it.
Eventually we got held and was on my approach to prison. we have been study a Word given we came behind to jail. we supposed a defence discount for 8 years in Department of Corrections custody. Here we am 30 years aged and in prison. we have been sealed adult for dual years now, though to be honest we would not change anything.
I now know that God authorised a trials in my life to move me closer to Him. we got baptized in Sep of 2015 and we entirely feel God’s adore in my life. we would not go behind to my aged lifestyle meaningful what we know now.
I know that trials might not lead we to where we wish to go, though there is a larger purpose behind a trials. Once we learn about Jesus Christ and how He sacrificed His life for a world’s sins, all else seems petty. We are meant for a aloft purpose, God’s purpose. Sometimes trials are required for us to find wish in this mislaid world.
I adore my new life as a Christian. we know that it is not easy to give your life over to God, though we can tell we it is value it. we wish it does not take as most as it took me for we to come to Christ. we urge for a universe daily. we urge for drug addicts especially.
I have lived a struggle. Through Christ we now have no cravings for drugs. we can step into a universe full of hope. we know we am a child of a Most High God. we know that He has a trail laid out for me that He needs me to take to do His will. All a strength we have is due to a Lord Jesus Christ.
