jonathan167My older brother Evan who I have only seen twice in the last 15 years flew into Bluffton this week. In so many ways it's a miracle beyond anything I could've imagined. A heavy methamphetamine addict for nearly 20 years, most of our holidays were spent wondering if he was still alive? After getting in trouble with the law he was enrolled in a 90 day drug rehabilitation facility to overcome his addiction. When our mother died unexpectedly four years ago we got a chance to reunite at her funeral. It was a bittersweet moment because of the loss while at the same time seeing him four months clean was borderline miraculous. He was a changed person and yet I felt sadness taking him to the airport to fly home. I wasn't sure his sobriety would last and if I'd ever see him again.

jrbroWhat I didn't know then but I see now was that Jesus Christ really did set his heart free. He really was a new creation, "the old was gone the new had come." Now it's five years later, he's working at Hope Church, one of the biggest churches in America. He has a large ministry outreach to drug addicts, and has been drug free in all that time. Even as I write these words it's still hard to believe what God has done in our lives. He's the greatest miracle I've ever known. I could live to be a 1000 and I don't think I'll ever completely understand what happened. I just accept it and Glorify God for it. The scripture is true, "Nothing is impossible with God."

Glorify God and Enjoy Him Forever,
