My friend, I came to know Christ the same way. It's strange for some to hear, but pot broke down a lot of emotional barriers I had established over
the years, and when I smoked and happened to have a Bible, I read Matthew that night (a lot of people exclaim at this point of my tale, "why
, but that was the book I opened to, and that was the book of the gospel which, to this day, speaks loudest to me) and was shocked I
hadn't seen it before. I went from being an evangelical Athiest to a closet Christian in a matter of hours.
That was 6 years ago, and since then I have had many problems being on pot so I quit. However, that was the catalyst that helped me to identify and
I identify, my brother. The Lord works with who we are, and he loves diversity. I was in tears that night, and I hadn't cried at that time for over 8
years. Since then, I've been able to identify with the band Third Day when they say,
It doesn't take much for me to shed a tear, and I have done so for what seems the millionth time
However, as I've learned,
If you see me start to cry, it's not 'cause I'm weak but hetting stronger
Glad to have you on board. Before tonight, I was the only Christian I knew who came to Christ where pot was the catalyst.
