From the first time He touched me...I knew He was real and that He cared. He took away the 14 year drug addiction - instantly. No drug rehab, or being locked up, or any other intervention had been able to free me. One touch...He freed me but still I challenged Him.... pushing Him away - daring Him to leave - continuing to hurt myself in ways that nearly killed me. No matter what I did, He waited...He stayed. I have discovered the power of His gentleness....I have discovered He really is a Father to the fatherless.
