Grace Meets You Where You Are

It was a Saturday afternoon I’ll never forget. I was 17 years old and
hanging out at a friend’s house when I found myself kneeling next to an
old Jeep, my trembling hands clasped together as I cried out to God. It
was more out of sheer exhaustion and desperation than any religious
formality.

At that point I realized my life was killing me—from my
very own choices. I was living from moment to moment, crisis to crisis,
looking for the next experience—drinking, stealing, sex, anything—that
would make me feel alive inside again. For years, I had been trying to
escape from the pain of life’s circumstances.

As I knelt there, alone, I didn’t realize what I was doing
and didn’t really care. But I knew I was giving up—and that’s all that
mattered to God.
