Prison Years (Part 2)

All I could do at that moment was to express my gratitude by thanking God for everything he had done and for allowing me to go to prison in order to save my life. To everyone who is reading my testimony I would like to say to you that nobody can repay a person back like God. Once again, I stabbed a woman and a child ( The child by accident) due to a man who was cheating on me and ended up leaving me for this woman while I was pregnant, and I ended up in prison and he eventually turned his back on me. But the Lord never forgotten about me or turned his back on me although he had to discipline me for my actions, and the man didn’t go unpunished for everything that he done to me. For the word of God says: Is this not laid up in store with me, sealed up among my treasures? Vengeance is mine, and recompense; Their foot shall slip in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come hasten upon them. (Deuteronomy 32:34-35)  And again: Beloved do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord. (Romans 12:19) I have been freed from prison since October 2004, and my son’s father is still in prison to this day, and has been there since 2003. Never try to repay a person for what they have done to you but instead position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord who is with you. When the man stopped supporting me, my mom sent me money faithfully throughout my six year stay and I felt that she should’ve done it because she spent the past fourteen years not being a mother. She played a major role in me searching for love in the streets when there was no love on the streets because all that men saw was a broken and vulnerable woman that they took advantage of. I walked faithfully with the Lord behind prison walls and I never masturbated once, nor did I indulge in homosexuality. God will keep you if you want to be kept and I wanted to be kept. His glory shined through my spirit and people saw that the Lord was with me and I was given much respect. In February 2004, my days at Pulaski was over and I was shipped back to Atlanta to a work release program. (Half way house) where I spent the next eight months. I was close to my freedom and that’s when the real test begin and my weakness for a man was still there because I was in a relationship with a guy but no sex was involved. But on one particular day, I got caught hugging the guy at a bus stop that almost sent me back to prison but because I was one month away from my release date, they didn’t send me back. Then finally on October 27, 2004, I was freed and that was the most happiest time of my life and a day that I will never forget. It seem like everybody in Athens Georgia came to visit me once the word got out that I was home and after all of the celebration, the tears, and the crying, I fell three months later and relapsed. For the bible says: Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall…..(1 Corinthians 10:12)
