My best friend since freshman year of high school hit hard times not long after being relieved from the Army and has struggled with addiction ever since. We parted ways for a while, only keeping in touch via phone and facebook. (Though he was a proud agnostic at the time, he was the most supportive person in my life during my conversion to Catholicism). We have always been able to have deep theological discussions, but he managed to let reason overrule faith every time. I watched and prayed patiently over the years as he slowly evolved from "atheist" to deist to agnostic. Well, long story short, he has finally come to Christ and is now clean and sober. Now, instead of calling me to try and tell me about his wild nights of partying, he is telling me about the power of God's Word in his life!
I just wanted to briefly share this story of God's amazing glory. Deus est bonus!
