I was extremely rebellious as a teenager. When my parents ran out of options, they sent me to live with my aunt. One night while she was sleeping, I watched an adult movie. Overcome with a huge sense of failure, I turned it off, walked outside and sat down on a highway overpass. It was close to midnight. As I sat watching these 18-wheelers drive down the freeway one by one, this voice in my head told me to jump.
For some reason, I didn’t have the courage to jump that night. ...A few months later, I was sent to a juvenile center. While I was alone in my room, a thought hit me: you’re going nowhere in life, and you've hurt everyone you love. I got down on my knees and said, “God, if you’re real, make something happen out of my life.” From that point on, I began changing. God gave me the power to do what was right. He took my brokenness, healed me and fixed my broken relationships.
