I was a smoker and drinker for years

He will never leave us nor forsake us.
By Gordon Bauch

12 years ago, I had enough, and I decided to ask the Lord for help after I had tried on my own many times to quit. It would last about a week, maybe even two weeks sometimes, but I always go back.


Well, I asked the Lord for help one night while drinking if he would take the desire away from me Of drinking. I told him if he would, I would also stop smoking on my own.


Still, HE had a better plan for me because when I ask him, Lord, in the name of Jesus, would you deliver me from alcohol in Jesus' holy name, father? I need your help because you know I can't do it by myself, and ever since that prayer, I haven't wanted either one.


He has truly delivered me from cigarettes and alcohol.. no desire at all. All I can say is God is good. He is still on the throne and working miracles every day I'm here 12 years later, praising God and thanking the Lord Jesus for His wonderful mercy and love he has for us. He will never leave us nor forsake us.
