Tell the World: i am weak


Hi, I’m Magaissen and I want to tell the world
what God did for me
Tell the world: Without You, I’m weak
First thing when I wake up
Get to the shop for a cigarette
I don’t even think to wash up
or to put my shoes
As I opened the gate, I met ‘ Uncle’ , an old neighbor
He stared at me and said:
” I saw you growing up all these years
How dare you?”
My friends were already at the shop that day
and they were also staring at me
One of them said : ” What happened yesterday?
What did you smoke? “
I just replied : ” Why asking? You already know”
Uncle was also there,
He stared at me while repeating : ” How dare you? “
” I don’t know what you’re all talking about, just tell me”
Uncle replied: ” You took me by the throat
and tried to take money from me.
I would have never thought that you would do this to me”
But I just didn’t care
One night, I was smoking synthetic weed with some friends
I heard a voice saying: ” Get back home right now”
I obeyed even if I was high and got back home
without being aware of anything as always
and
I went to the bathroom
and got stuck in front of the mirror
At that moment, something inside me clicked
Some years back , I was great at sports
Doing boxing and even was a great runner at school
I took part in regional and national competitions
I even won gold medals
Mom and dad were so proud of me
I was learning hard and did great at school too
But on that day, my mirror confrontation showed me
how all of me died
Where is the real Magaissen?
How can I find him back? “
My reflection disgusted me
I was so ugly and dirty
I just felt down on my knees
I burst in tears
The big man I thought to be,
was crying so much that my nose was running
aksing for repentance
telling ” God, I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I ‘m sorry”
I was regretting all the bad things I used to do
how I disappointed everyone
with all my misbehaviours
I heard God telling me
” My son, dry your tears and stop crying
because all what you wanted to stop
stop synthetic drugs, drugs ,marijuana, alcohol”
I was even taking ‘ brown ‘.
If you want to stop everything
Tomorrow, I will accomplish all this in you
The next day , the bad habits were back
I was craving for my morning cigarette
Then , I remembered what happened the night before
and remembered God’s promises
Glory to my God, it’s been now nearly a year
I did not take any drugs. I stop everything all at once.
I’m not saying it was easy take the decision to stop
I would have never been able to do that,
I’m just a man and I don’t have this will power
and I said in my prayer: ” God
I’m just a man, I’m weak
I don’t have the strength to do that by myself
Let thy will be done and then He said:
” You will be able to stop”
When I let God in, my life changed
I got a job with a great salary
I would have never thought to be blessed that much
and for me to go to work
God blessed me again
by giving a beautiful bike , a professional one
I got work everyday on my bike
I was getting fit again as I used to be
But mistakes still do happen
I had to quit that job
Today , I’m a mechanic
and I am proud of all I accomplished in my life
because I may not have a great salary like before
but my life goal is still the same
God showed me that I need to get back to my studies
So that one day, I can become a pastor
This is my dream and this is God’s will
From the state of a severe drug addict,
God brought back hope in my life
I can now share my story to those around me
that are still in the state that I used to be,
to bring hope and relief in their life too
God exists and miracles too.
“Every single day during my 3 years of severe addiction, those days when that I decided to leave school
You were praying for me and asked so many to do the same
You made me discover the power of prayers.
Thanks to everyone, Thanks Mom. ” Magaissen
” The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. Ps 34: 17″
